2005 Ford Freestyle SEL AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Just when you think you have bought a reliable family vehicle. I noticed a ticking noise coming from under the hood after a long business trip. When I got back, I decided to have it looked at. I was not even thinking that it could be transmission trouble. Who thinks that at 71,000 miles that you would have transmission trouble? And when I looked to see what the manufacturers warranty was, only 3 years or 36,000 miles???!!! Oh my goodness! You think Ford didn't know that would be a problem? The transmission specialist told me a brand new tranny would cost about $7,000!! I almost choked! What a shame. Please read this and take something from it!
Nice looking, handles well.
Please fix the transmission problems. No one should have to worry about transmission trouble at 71,000 miles!
