2005 Ford Freestyle SE Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

Review

I've had my 2005 freestyle 2 years.
It's miles 112,000.
When stopped it would lunge forward.
Had mechanic look at it but he couldn't get it to lunge.
Then the rear traction light came on.
Tried to take it to mechanic & was fine.
A few more days go by and then the check transmission light comes on.
Again go to mechanic and it runs fine.
This time I had it looked at & was told it had 5 transmission codes, none of which he could fix. Drove it
for weekend made an appt to take to tranny shop,
told it needed a new tranny $4500 plus labor of $1500 and backordered 90 days. I am like others and stuck making payments while it sits.
This will be my last Ford.

Worst Features

Ford needs to step up and recall these vehicles. A solution to this problem would help all of us who bought there product out.
