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.

It is easy and I've already been contacted twice by NHTSA for further information. Let's flood them with complaints.

Look at the Freestyle Recall topic in this forum. I filed a complaint with the NHTSA about my 2007 Freestyle lunging and have posted the name and contact information of the investigator that contacted me for more information.

What state AG contacted Ford? My 2007 Ford Freestyle was delivered in January, 2007. In March 2008, the transmission went and the DEALER had the Freestyle the end of May, 2008. the DEALER told me that "PEOPLE" were flown in from "Detroit." Then, in August, 2009, the transmission went on the Mass Pike. I called the DEALER and I was told that it was my responsibility because the car was out of warranty, but the new transmission only had 11,000 miles on it. (As an aside, no one was at the dealership that I had any contact with when the transmission went in 2008. I called Ford. I was told that this was not a "Ford problem" because it was not fixed by Ford, but rather by the "transmission shop around the corner." I am outraged!!!

I am in Maryland, but using the AG didn't help any even with the car still under Warranty.
