200 miles is not an accurate way to measure gas mileage. it needs to be done over at least a thousand miles, or so(multiple fillups).

Don't know if you have found an answer to your question, or if this will help at all, but I had CD player fail after just 2,000 miles. The kind members of the Freestyle forum were generous enough to share this with me. Good luck!

05-10-19 INTERMITTENT CD PLAYER CONCERNS - AUDIO UNIT PROGRAMMABLE MODULE INSTALLATION (PMI) REQUIREMENTS
Publication Date: May 16, 2005
FORD: 2005 Five Hundred, Focus, Freestyle, Mustang, F-150
MERCURY: 2005 Montego
This article supersedes TSB 05-06-09 to update the service procedure.
Some 2005 vehicles built before 2/24/2005, and equipped with a 6 disc CD player with MP3 capability (e.g. radio must have MP3 logo present), may exhibit one or more of the following intermittent CD player concerns.
CD player skips repeatedly
Locks up when playing certain homemade CDs
Displays "Error" or "Bad Disc" repeatedly
Will not accept CDs
CD inoperative or inconsistent playability of some CDR media
Obtain detailed description of symptoms reported by customer.
If issue only occurs with a specific CD, examine the CD causing the concern. Confirm that it is in good condition (e.g. CD is NOT chipped, warped, scratched, labeled, or contaminated).
Replace radio with latest service level through your facing audio service center.
When replacing the audio unit (radio) on 2005 Freestyle, Five Hundred, Montego and Mustang vehicles it is necessary to perform programmable module installation (PMI) prior to removal of the old audio unit. This information must be uploaded into the new audio unit once installed. Failure to perform PMI on the new audio unit may result in inoperative backlighting and/or diagnostic trouble code (DTC) B2477. It is not necessary to perform PMI on the F-150 or Focus.
If communication cannot be established with old audio unit to download this information or if old audio unit is not available, as built data will need to be entered. Use NGS+ or PDS scan tool to complete the operation or follow the procedure below using WDS:
With radio (ACM) DISCONNECTED, start a new WDS session (delete existing session if started).
After WDS identifies the vehicle, select Toolbox > Module Programming > Programmable Module Installation > ACM.
Follow WDS prompts, connect radio (ACM) when prompted to "install new module", hit tic mark to continue.
WDS will prompt for as built data. Enter as built data and finish following prompts until "module configuration successful" is displayed.
As built data can be obtained at the Professional Technician Society (PTS) website or at www.motorcraft.com. For additional information, refer Workshop Manual Section 415-01 and 418-01.

Same problem with my CD player in my new 2005 Focus. I had it to the dealer 4 weeks ago and still waiting for a replacement, the part is back ordered. I even made a call Ford directly with no resolve... It seems Ford is having problems with this unit and the vendor that supplies them... I would suggest you call Ford to register your problem.
