looking for owners of 2.4 pertrol and their experience with it

Wird nicht angezeigt, wenn Sie angemeldet sind!

Hi Folks,

While I made it through the German registration with a little help of Google Translate it will not be possible to write a post in German. Apologies.

Here is my question - after a test drive today I got "strongly convinced" Freemont will be my next car (driving a 4y old Linea 1.6 diesel, 105hp right now).

For financial reasons I do look at 2,4 engine as my "first choice" - but I am a liitle bit worried of both car dynamics (13.3sec to 100kmh, its ~2sec longer than my Linea I think).

So - I would be happy to hear feedback from owners of 2.4 Freemonts (automatic transmission, front wheels drive) - either English or German (will translate).

Thanks in advance!

PS. the dealer I talked with stated that actually both 2,4 and v6 engines behave better with the automated transmission than the one I tried (2.0 Multijet 170hp). was it a "selling language" or there is something behind it.

Hello and welcome to our Forum.

Sorry, but I think, You will not find someone here who drives a Freemont with the 2.4 Liter engine. The performance of this engine is very poor and it burns to much gas. For this reasons, this engine is not a good choice in Germany. Most buyers in Germany prefer one of the Diesel engines.
The statement from your dealer about the automatic transmission might be true. Some owners reported here, that the automatic transmission does not work perfect in combination with the Diesel engine. But if You find it o.k., You should take this one.

Thanks for your comment. After some thinking I am now considering the v6 option ... did all the calculations and while it will cost me "a bit" more in the long run (I did calculations for 100k km and compared to 2.0 diesel it will be somewhere in the 8k EUR range) I believe it will be worth it. Last time I had an v6 engine in Ford Capri a while ago ... and that Capri was 3 years older than me :)

keep also in mind that the V6 pentastar from chrysler which is in the freemont, can take biofuel E85, which is a lot cheaper than normal fuel (around 1.1€/L in germany, 0.84€/L in france)
Only Fiat didnt officialize it, the same motor on jeep or chryslers is officially badged for E85

Even if the germans are still a bit waiting to see, more and more french are using E85 in their V6 with very good results

piotr did not tell us yet, where he is coming from. So if he is able to buy E85 fuel, the V6 would be a good alternative. Even when I think of the power.... grrrr. :love:

hi again, I am from Poland, and unfortunately as far as I know E85 is still in "early pilot" mode here, with a single gas station in the capital city (and this is not changing for last 2 years). anyway - thank for all the feedback, I believe I now closed the "2.4 option" :)
