Re: 100k Mile Service

No no no. Not from there. You must have missed my previous post(s). The car was fleet maintained and had 150,000 on it when I got a REALLY fantastic deal on it. The tune-up break down is as follows: 6 spark plugs $48 6 Coil boots $120 6 intake gaskets $72 The rest was labor for having to remove the ...

Re: 100k Mile Service

Well I just had my '07 serviced at the dealer. Tune-up $485; CVT fluid and high pressure filter & seals $379. I had supplied the oil & filter (Mobil 1 oil & Mobil 1 filter $40+) and they charged $7 to change it; I also had a leaky front crank seal which was $165; and finally I had the driver seat ch...

Re: I installed aftermarket heated seats...2007 SEL. Here's

Also, you said you had the service manual? Could I trouble you to check to see what the resistance is supposed to be when trouble shooting the existing heat element(s) please?

Excellent write-up. I just wish the photos you took 57 of were captioned so I knew what I was looking at as not every photo is clearly why it was taken.

Re: Car Alarm Going Off Constantly

I thought I saw in the owners manual (of my 07 FS LTD) you can disable the alarm feature? You should check it out.

Re: My Freestyle saved my life!!

Oh my goodness! WOW! Some serious damage there! Sure as hell reaffirms my decision to buy one of the safest vehicles on the road (IMO). I am glad Jim is alright, that no kids were involved, and hope to never test my 07 that way! Thanks for the pics!

Re: just hit 120,000 miles, took to dealership & they didnt

Yes, I got the same impression that the SW was nothing more than a puppet. The trans mechanic was called and he straightened the SW out. Total cost for the fluid change w/HP filter, gaskets/seals & some type of bypass tubes is just under $350 which is acceptable. Now the $600 to repair the heated se...

Re: New (to me) 2007 FS LTD!

Yes, WOW is the appropriate reaction. I think the woman lived in it. LOL But as you can see from my avatar, the thing looks/drives/runs like brand new. The miles are all Highway miles I was told, as it was a fleet vehicle for an insurance agency and an adjuster chick was the driver.

Re: just hit 120,000 miles, took to dealership & they didnt

To those who think the Freestyle only came with the CVT transmission... There IS a FWD version of the Freestyle available and it comes with the 6 speed transmission. There was not a CVT/FWD combination available . My 2007 FWD has a CVT. I scheduled an appointment for this Monday for the FS 150,000 ...

New (to me) 2007 FS LTD!

First post. Just wanted to say I just got my FS LTD 1 week ago. Got a fantastic deal on it and since I have gotten new tires and 4 wheel alignment done. Monday it goes into Ford to do the 150,000 maintenance, tune-up, oil/filter change, CVT fluid change etc. Also will look at the drivers seat, can't...
