Re: Ford Freestyle Tranny Helicopter Noise

.....Mine is at the shop and they are researching it......Mine sounds as though it is coming in for landing, however the mechanic I have had for years, does not see it as an issue. They are doing an engine, filter, and whatever else he sees, that needs a clean up and I am confident he will come acr...

Re: 2006 Ford Freestyle lights come on, engine revvs, and car jerks

OK, I am looking into getting the codes, but in the meantime, what would the dealership do that would cost us $2000? can't tell, honestly. did they plug their Code Reader on the car, and what codes did they give you? If there's a need to change the Instrument Cluster, just like Dan said, there're c...

Re: 2006 Ford Freestyle lights come on, engine revvs, and car jerks

+1 Dan on cluster pricing and sourcing. But in addition, i believe something else certainly must have made your car to cut out and stutter going up hill like that, and when the check engine light (CEL) came up, the car surely must have saved a code in the PCM for you to pull out and see exactly what...

Re: Alas, the day came too soon.....

I have never talked to anyone in person who owns or has owned a FS that did not love it. I still cannot understand why Ford built such a great car and then just abandoned it to the marketplace with no advertising whatsoever. I had a 2017 Flex for a rental car a few weeks ago and it is a POS compare...

Re: A different kind of CVT problem

.....Any suggestions as to what would cause the tranny to lose both forward and reverse? What's interesting is the wrench light comes on before you even put it into gear so it knows something's not right with the unit even when it's in park. The car has 240 k, and is an AWD Limited. +1 xvert. Your ...

Re: Seeking A Road Trip Advise for a round trip 2466 miles.

Mr. Africa, I'm also a relatively new owner of a Freestyle. Did not now that about the cruise control or gas tank. Thanks for the info. Welcome! these didn't affect all the cars though. A statistically small number of members (including me) did experience these and reported them. These weren't majo...

Re: Seeking A Road Trip Advise for a round trip 2466 miles.

i think you've done almost all the right things already. We took ours on a number of long trips while we had it, and honestly it never let us down. from my experience with ours, It even appears the freestyle loves to be on the wide open road far more than within the city....perhaps that was a Freest...
