What are the best features of the Ford Freestyle?
With regards to functionality, we believe this is the best feature on the Ford Freestyle. The cabin of the Ford Freestyle has a generous cargo storage in both the second and third row of seats, which can seat both adults and children comfortably. With regards to cargo space, its boxy shape and low floor with the “fold flat” ability for the second and third row seats created a resounding 85 cubic feet of cargo space. With the third row seats folded up, we get a generous 48 cubic feet of cargo space and with the second row seats also folded up, brings us to an amazing 16 cubic feet of cargo space. Also, its ride quality is very impressive on different road surfaces. The ride quality is so impressive that in some situations, when driving the Ford Freestyle on some rough roads, one would not notice the difference on driving on smooth roads.
Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Ford Freestyle in Nigeria
In the Nigerian automobile market, a large number of pre-owned Ford Freestyles are available. Most vehicle sales people recommend purchasing the Tokunbo vehicles, because they believe that they were used in better road conditions and maintenance. Whereas, there are cases where accidental vehicles are brought into the country and sold as Tokunbo without issues. We suggest that in the event of buying a Tokunbo Ford Freestyle, take a trained eye, such as a mechanic along to look at the vehicle with you. The Nigerian used ones are also in good conditions, if the previous owner used it properly and it was void of any accidents or major issues. Also, we suggest taking a trusted mechanic along with you in the event of purchasing a Nigerian used or Registered Ford Freestyle.
