2007 Ford Freestyle SEL 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I purchased my 2007 freestyle in April 2088 with just over 10,000 miles. The transmission went in 2009, not sure of mileage and had to be repaired. This month at approximately 48,000 miles it went again. Service decided to would be more cost effective to replace with a refurbished transmission. The car is only 3 yrs old! The refurbished transmission (not new) only has a limited warranty and was told by service that if it goes again after warranty, it could cost 3000 to 5000 dollars to fix. I believe Ford new about the problems with the transmission on these cars and purposely failed to tell of potential transmission problems.
the amount of room of the interior. does not set low to the ground like a sedan and not to high like the bigger SUV's.
Build these cars with better transmissions and acknowledge to customers of potential problems.
