Re: CVT Input Shaft

I have a 2006 and the dealer told me yesterday that the input shaft is going bad and the total cost to replace with a new tranny including labor would be $5434.95. Anyone know of where I can get parts and/or a new or good rebuilt for a lot less?

Re: steering moaning & Whining

Mercon V is an automatic transmission fluid. The TSB said to use that for the Power Steering Fluid?

I am having moans from my steering when we park and turn the wheel all the way left or right. Like a groaning sound from the steering or suspension

Re: 2006 Freestyle Navigation System/CD and Radio Got Wet

Just an update. We have had this happen twice. The first time I pulled the unit out and let it sit in a closed/sealed container of rice for several days and after that it was find. The second time I wiped it off and let it dry on it's own. Either way it is still working fine now.

AIR BAG INDICATOR LIGHT PROBLEM

As mentioned under a Nav question the air bag light now stays on. In the night during the rain storm the horn was stuck on till I pushed the horn button several times but I fear the rain affected the air bag in the steering wheel too.

Anyone have any recommendations on what we should do?

2006 Freestyle Navigation System/CD and Radio Got Wet

We accidently left our sunroof open all night and it rained. The inside of the vehicle got pretty wet. Now the Radio/CD/Nav is having problems. The display is fine but some of the touch screen buttons won't work neither will the CD buttons. Anyone have any recommendations on what we should do?
