#173 of 255 Ford 2006 Freestyle Transmission Failure
Aug 25, 2010 (5:47 am)
I have been I loyal Ford owner. All I have ever owned is Fords Currently, I own a 2006 Ford Freestyle with 40,000 miles on it and the transmission has failed. After numerous conversations with Ford "Customer Care", they have agreed to pay 1/2 of a new transmission to the tune of $3,500 (a new transmission is $7,000). NOT GOOD ENOUGH!. A transmission should not fail at 40,000 miles.
I BELIEVE WE HAVE A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. Ford knows the CVT transmittion is JUNK.
My question to all of you out there: How do we get a class action lawsuit going? Ford needs to compensate all of us with problems with the CVT transmission.

I don't know how to start a class action suit, but you must report this problem to the National Highway Transportation Safety board. This should be a recall item!

Don't you love the "customer care" line. And that is exactly what I told the customer care at Ford. And, all they had to say about that is they do not respond to these kinds of blogs or website they are not affiliated with Ford! So, I have paid all the money to fix the car.
And then I contacted Alex Simanovsky and Associates that specialize in the "Lemon Law and Breach of Warranty". They took my case and now I am waiting to hear from back from them. They said it should take 6 - 8 weeks. Go online, look it up! Can't hurt, you are already out the money to fix it!
And, it's WRONG!

The continuing Saga since the attorney general contacted Ford we got 5 more Wrench light incidents (Error Code P2766). And Fords answer to the Attorney General's office about car still under Warranty is it's a Dealer problem don't bother us.

Thank you for telling me about the NHTSA website. I have a Ford 2005 Freestyle when last year at 42,000 miles a rod slipped in the transmission, literally causing it to explode. I found pieces of the transmission on the road way. The dealer said he had never seen anything like it. Thank goodness I was only going 30 mph when it happened! Ford would not pay a dime towards the repairs since I was out of warranty at the time it occurred. I am still upset that I was required to pay approximately $5,500 for a new transmission and to repair the damage caused to other parts in the engine from the transmission exploding. I filed a complaint on the NHTSA website, at least it is some sort of action.

I wish the government would do like they did for Toyota with the recalls. what a shame ford. i found out that there were many faulty parts that ford put on cvt's that are making all this problems with just need a attorney willing to do a class action lawsuit like the saturn vue.

You are right about this but how about ford putting parts that were defective into this transmissions? they had a bunch of parts taken out the shelfs for problems and discarded.
