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

Review

ALERT ALERT-Do not buy a Ford Freestyle! FORD; you need to recall this car to replace the throttle body in all models at FORD's expense. A $900 repair on a car this young and with such low milage is an engineering problem, not a normal repair. To make matters worse, I brought the car in while still under warranty with the same problem. Service charged me $148.00 to run the diagnostic test on the computer and said it needed a tweak. I now know why. FORD didn't want to pay for a new throttle body. After completing my research on this problem, I found dozens of others with same the problem. Shame on you FORD. Fixed Or Repaired Daily.

Favorite Features
