You can get aftermarket warranties or buy an extended warranty from Ford. If your inclined to get it from Ford, you should know that the warranty has a markup for the dealer to make a profit on it when he sells it to you. In other words, the price can be negotiable. There are sites on the internet that will sell you the same Ford warranty at a discount. That is the way I purchased one for our 2001 Windstar. It certainly is easy because once the dealership's service department types in your VIN, your warranty comes up automatically. The internet sites will give you a quote based on the year and mileage of the vehicle, so you can get it before purchasing the Freestar then use that quote to negotiate the warranty price.
Two important things to remember: Buying a warranty before the original 36 mo/36,000 mile manufacturer warranty is easier and warranty prices do go up each year.

Hey do yourself a favor and buy a yugo instead--it would be more dependable. Let me assure you that the problems go way beyond the transmission. This one is a dud and I could kick myself for not taking advantage of the lemon law.
