Transmission Out at 97,000 miles
By jayman1201 on


2004 Ford Freestar SES 4dr Minivan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Bought this thing in '06 with 67,000 miles on it. 1 year after purchase the AC went out. In '08 coming home from my sister's wedding in Canada, the transmission went out. Torque converter broke apart and screwed the Transmission. On 2nd one now and the 4th gear is shot in that. Worst vehicle ever. Ford should have had a recall notice on the transmission. Too common a problem not to address.
