I have posted MANY MANY complaints about my 2006 Ford Freestyle. Same thing Throttle body control. Parts not going to be available until Jan or Feb. 2010 if we are lucky, Which is so crazy they dont have a manufacture to make this part. What I've been researching is that the manufacture that made this part went bankrupt. SO Ford needs to find another manufacture then test the part. YADA YADA YADA. My throttle body went out at 48 thousand miles no its not under warranty, but no way was I going without a car. Ford agreed to pick up EVERY CENT of my rent a a car which I am going on about 46 days. My car has been in the shop for about 48 days. I can give you the number to ford which makes all decisions on the rent a cars. Maybe if you bug her enough she will pay for a rent a car. let me know. I can't believe Ford is getting away with this and not recalling this part!!!! URG so frustrating.!!!

You are welcome to contact each other off the boards (mark your email public in your profile or use your CarSpace email), but please don't post phone numbers or names of customer service people on the forums. Numbers change and we get complaints and many people don't want their names posted on the net.

I'm watching your thread with great interest. I've got an 05 SEL that my folks bought new. The engine has died maybe 5 times, most recently two weeks ago in central Florida. I believe each time it's happen it's been when coming to a stop. My father took it in under warranty, but of course they found nothing. I own the car now and this is the first time it's happened to me. I'd like to get to the bottom of it myself if possible, I'm a DIY'er.

I have a Ford Five Hundred 2005---Been in shop since July13th 50,000 miles, Throttle Body on backorder...was Oct, then Dec, who knows now. I am getting no help, no car rental. Actually went and purchased a new car because I didnt have a vehicle.
I am interested in getting local news, and a recall. I have contacted the attorney generals office and now the Office of Defects Investigation....they can make Ford recall the part. Has anyone got an attorney yet? Really, this is crazy...

I have contacted several lawyers about this situation..if you find one that will take the case he will have a lot of people to back the claims. My attorney general did nothing..

#124 of 300 keeping customers

I dropped out of this message board for a while because the whole issue of Ford's poor service was making me crazy. Reading about others' misery was only reinforcing my own. My husband and I were fortunate to be able to trade my nonfunctional 2006 Freestyle and his wornout Ford 350 diesel truck circa 1992 for a new Toyota Tundra and a new Hundyai (sp?) Genesis. I have nothing but disgust for Ford and I will never even entertain the thought of owning another one. If you look at the number of types of Fords and discontinuation of models you'll be flabbergasted. It's as if Ford has ADHD. Couldn't that company just make a reliable product and stick with it?? Oh, well---when they can't keep customers............
