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

Review

We bought out Freestyle used and was assured that it was a great automobile with no known issues. After a year of owning it the car died and it has to have the CVT transmission fixed. I replaced the mechatronic unit and it still is not fixed. Dealer said that the best thing to do is light a match and drop it on the floorboard. A new trans is $6000 and a throttle body is $500. Mechatronic unit was $800. What a money pit. If it had a better transmission it would be a great car but it cannot move without this working.

Favorite Features

Everything except the transmission.

Suggested Improvements

Ford needs to reimburse buyers or replace the transmisison with something better. They know the problems exsist and will not fix them.
