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


Just when you think you have bought a reliable family vehicle. I noticed a ticking noise coming from under the hood after a long business trip. When I got back, I decided to have it looked at. I was not even thinking that it could be transmission trouble. Who thinks that at 71,000 miles that you would have transmission trouble? And when I looked to see what the manufacturers warranty was, only 3 years or 36,000 miles???!!! Oh my goodness! You think Ford didn't know that would be a problem? The transmission specialist told me a brand new tranny would cost about $7,000!! I almost choked! What a shame. Please read this and take something from it!

Best Features

Nice looking, handles well.

Worst Features

Please fix the transmission problems. No one should have to worry about transmission trouble at 71,000 miles!
