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


Bought our '05 Freestyle used with 27K. Ran good for 2 weeks, then one of the sensors went bad. $210 later because the car was out of warranty. It's been a year and 27K w/o issues until now the transmission literally blew up while driving. No noise, no check lights, just BAM! It's going to be at least $3K-$6K to fix. From what I've been reading, this is not the first time. I could never figure out how there were so little miles on a 3 year old car. Well, i figure now it must have been in the shop most of those years.

Best Features

How the '05 Freestyle dazzles. It dazzles my brain how a tranny can literally blow up, without ever making some kind of indication before there was a problem.

Worst Features

Don't put in junk tranny's that blow up before 50K!!! And then deny there is a problem.
