Don't walk away from this car...RUN!
By HateMyFord on
2005 Ford Freestyle SE Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Replaced brakes prematurely twice, tires before the first year of ownership was up, driver seat heater is broken, stereo goes out, car is now at dealership saying the CVT will need to be replaced. Buyers beware w/this car! Not worth it. Car is worth less than we currently owe. We are up-side-down with this car and it is no longer driveable. Ford has known about this problem but hasn't recalled or acknowledge it. It is not only a pain financially, it is also a safety issue for drivers and their families.
I actually now hate this car.
stop making cars unless you back up your product. Don't act as though there is nothing wrong with your CVT transmissions in your '05's.
