A Bad Joke!
By Taken In on
2005 Ford Freestyle SEL AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
We bought this car, new,from our local dealership. We have never been more unhappy with a car! Even though we always have,we won't buy another Ford product! Things gone wrong: tailgate latch, 2 radio/cd players, seat warmers, rear heater fan, 3 sets of tires-something wrong w/alignment, and now the throttle. Part is on emergency backorder along w/600+ others whose cars are sitting. Dealer solution: car must sit for at least 6 months while waiting for part. Was told all Ford parts are on backorder due to slowing economy and manufacturing problems. Dealership won't give us a loaner or any hope for a reasonable solution, despite our extended warranty. Considering contacting an attorney.
Was purchased because it had roomy interior for passengers and enough space to carry my business supplies for my rental properties.
Don't keep making cars when you are not going to make parts accessible, especially when the under warranty car is going to need those parts as soon as the car is driven off the lot!
