2004 Ford Freestar Cargo Van 4dr Minivan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)
While driving home, my driver side window quit working. The buttons on my radio quit working, although it randomly kept trying to reprogram "preset 2". Finally, at 65mph on a busy road, I rapidly lost all acceleration. Almost exactly like many of you have explained with the erratic RPM.
I flushed the transmission fluid, hoped that it was a fluke. Fixed a loose connection on the driver side door, got the window working again.
The radio was still acting up, but feeling confident I hopped into my NEW van only to have it NOT START AT ALL.

The electrical and transmission failures far outweigh any positive features that this vehicle may have.
