Never buying a ford again.

Vehicle: 2005 Ford Freestyle SEL Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

We bought our freestyle off kijiji. At first it was a good vehicle but was a little suckish on gas. We liked it for room for dogs or for passengers or for easy convienvence. After about two years of ownership, we started hearing a rumbling sound when in P or N. We took the car in and they told us that it was the transmission. We will now be trying to get rid of this piece of shit for something better like a mazda cx-7 before our lemonmobile breaks down. ps never buy another FORD.




What a waste of 10

Vehicle: 2005 Ford Freestyle SEL Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

We bought out Freestyle used and was assured that it was a great automobile with no known issues. After a year of owning it the car died and it has to have the CVT transmission fixed. I replaced the mechatronic unit and it still is not fixed. Dealer said that the best thing to do is light a match and drop it on the floorboard. A new trans is $6000 and a throttle body is $500. Mechatronic unit was $800. What a money pit. If it had a better transmission it would be a great car but it cannot move without this working.

Is there any big difference? I'm currently looking for a certified pre-owned Freestyle with the safety and security package. Those side airbags are hard to find! There are quite a few 2005s out there,...

Recently my 2005 Ford Freestyle (38k miles) has been starting rough in cold weather. The oil pressure low light comes on for about 5 seconds, then it stops and idles fine. What could be wrong?...
