Flaw in brake cylinder design
By Israel Barbosa on
Vehicle
2004 Ford Freestar Limited 4dr Minivan (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
Review
The vehicle is not that good when negotiating a sharp, vehicle leans too much. Rear brake calipers cost me $499.00 they have to be replaced if they extend to far out. Was told by a large reputable brake company, that the caliper is poorly designed and this problem happens frequently with two Ford vans: the Freestar and the Freestyle. the company should address this flaw and replace them with a system that doesn't cost the consumer hundreds to replace Fords poorly designed rear brake system. looking forward to hear something from the Ford company, i'm tempted to inform consumer report, the media etc, etc. Also had to have my 6 cd player changed the disc were getting jammed.
Favorite Features
The stereo speaker controls are exceptional, love the seating design, love the power. Also love the design of the exterior of the van.
Suggested Improvements
The anti sway needs to be improved, if you hit a slight bump on a turn it sways out to far, can result in a collision. The Ford company should take the responsibility of calling in these vehicle to replace those defective poorly designed rear calipers so that we don't have to pay hundreds to replace
