CVT stands for Crappy Vehicle Transmission

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


Please beware when buying a 2005-07 used Freestyle...learn from our mistake.

Bought the vehicle used with 38,000 miles on it. Maintained the vehicle very well and then suddenly out of nowhere, weird noise from the engine during idle in Park or Neutral. two weeks later super loud noise from engine compartment, similar to a chain being dragged across a hollow wooden chest. two weeks after that tranny completely gone. $5900-$7000 to fix or install new one. Still owe just under $7k on the car. Mileage is only 116k. unacceptable and we're walking away from it. vehicle is sitting in the garage next to sons electric power wheels Ford truck that ironically still runs after 3 years...
