Re: Where is the best place to buy a CVT transmission?

I have an 07 ford freestyle cvt awd transmission that went out and will not go into gear. Where is the best place to buy a used or even new transmission from if it's not to much. I have a little bit of money put up but not much. So I will be buying the transmission and most likely putting the new o...

Re: VIN Check

Is this still going for $4, or is it cheaper now please? need a few lookups. thanks. For you my friend I would give a report for free. The only requirement would be for you to be baptized and profess the one true faith. It's a win-win for you! _______________________________________________________...

Re: What's the max weight you put in your vehicle?

I've had 2 adults and 8 kids plus luggage in my Freestyle a few years ago. Just ask Africa_FS_07 to verify. :lol: __________________________________________________________________ “Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine, which I guess is why several of us died of tuberculosis." jaunty75

Re: Do I have remote start?

Any investment into an old Freestyle at this point is wasting money, IMO. A remote start would probably cost you a few hundred $$ and wouldn't add any value to the car. If you have seen the insides of my Freestyle it is trashed thanks to my hippie college daughter but it runs like a champ! I just re...

Re: 2006 Freestyle AWD Limited (2) Issues PO701 and Coolant Warning Light On

A car sitting for 5 months is never good on its future performance. Things stick like one of Africa_FS bad jokes. If it was me I would replace all coolant hoses, thermostat (and gasket), as well as flush out the radiator. Also why do we always attribute women names to cars? Don't assume a car's gend...

Re: 2005 Ford freestyle

That's awesome to hear. Maybe I'll be able to hand down my freestyle, that only has 160K on the odometer, to my remaining 3 kids. I just don't know how to get the marijuana smell out of the seats that my hippie college daughter has caused. :lol: ______________________________________________________...

Re: No more Freestyle

After 187,000 Km, I no longer own the 2005 Freestyle. Although it was still in good running order, I thought it was time to step up to what I consider my last car on this earth. I am running out of time, so it was now or never. I traded the Freestyle in for a 2019 Kia Sorento SXL. White exterior an...

Re: The Dreaded CVT

I have a 2005 Freestyle with 150,000 on the odometer. It's worth $1500 at best. If the CVT goes I'll part it out and then sell the rest to the scrap yard. Absolutely not worth sinking $1000+ to repair. I'm just glad my college age daughter is driving the POS and not me. :lol: To me, boxing is like a...

Re: CVT transmission Lawsuit

My 2005 freestyle is still going strong (albeit with a 1 qt oil leak every 3 months). As long as it keeps driving I don't have to worry about buying another car. Once it kicks the bucket I will scrap it after parting out what I can. It's not worth investing more than $500 in parts.
