The Rear Brakes are Not Fit For Purpose
By allanedgar on


2006 Ford Freestyle SEL 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


The rear brakes are not fit for purpose. After only 30,000KM the rear brakes started grinding. The pads were finished and the disks were scored. What a joke! My last car, a Honda Accord needed front pads only after 100,000KM and rear pads after 160000KM. No rotors changed. Is Ford going to recall this car and fit rear brakes which are 'Fit For Purpose'

Best Features

Good seating and fuel economy except when it's cold. Handling is better than most SUVs on the highway

Worst Features

Is Ford going to recall this car and fit rear brakes which are 'Fit For Purpose'? Washer fluid container is small. Heated mirrors and rear screen should turn on automatically when the temperature is below 2C. Brake pad wear sensors should be on all disks.
