2005 Ford Freestyle SE Fwd 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Purchased this car from a auction 6 months ago.
The freestyle has a smooth ride but not kid friendly at all.
Easy to get dirty.
I've had transmission problems since.
I took it to a transmission mechanic and he said he just replaced one 6 months earlier and the lowest transmission he found was 3k used, a new one is 6k. I've emailed Ford because I am driving a Ford and not a Lexus.
If I could afford a transmission that cost 3 or 6k I would've bought a Lexus.
I've emailed Ford and Dan responded that he's glad I purchased the freestyle, sorry for my problems and good luck.
So they are not standing behind their junk....I'm stuck with a piece of JUNK.
Please don't buy this car.
I suggest they recall the transmission or come out with a much more affordable one.
I don't need a car that the parts are more than the car itself.
