2006 Ford Freestyle SE 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

Review

I had car Certified, 3 mos. b/b warranty, 100,000 engine, tranny warranty. Bought every available warranty. Relative is mechanic at our local dealership. At 51,000 miles throttle body malfunctioned cost $800.00 to replace. Not under warranty. In April 2009 during routine maintenance oil leak in AC Compressor was detected, must be replaced for a cost of 1,200. Ford keeps the throttle body in stock, 2 week backlog on air compressor, should tell you something. Says tranny is a problem for this car too. Disabled, cannot afford these costly repairs. Where is the accountability Ford? Don't buy this car unless you can afford the repairs! If you get a good one count your blessings!

Favorite Features

Bought vehicle for 3rd row seats for grandchildren. Leather seats.

Suggested Improvements

Ford needs to recall vehicle for throttle body replacement before someone gets hurt or worse, killed. Very dangerous, car lunges and dies without notice.
