that sounds like warped rotor's and different from the premature pad/rotor wear issue that people have been complaining about.

I purchased an Escape Hybrid today. They want $1295 to extend the warranty to 6/60,000. I told them I'd get back to them tomorrow. Can you recommend a place where I can get the same warranty at a discount?

Hey, this worked great. Yesterday the dealer offered me a 6/60,000 for $1,295. I found a quote of $920 for the same Ford ESP on fordwarrantys.com. I was then able to use that to bargain my dealer down to $795. What a markup they have on these things. Your advice saved me $500.

The shuddering may be caused by the rear brakes also. There was a problem with the pads in the rear leaving a high spot on the rotor if the car sat awhile,like in inventory at the dealer waiting to be sold. Ford describes it as "pad transfer" and the interim fix was to actually apply the parking brake while the car sat for a period of time. The real fix was to update the rear pads, but thoughs are the pads that are wearing out so fast...or it can be warped or out of round rotors in front, but that is very rare on the Freestyle.

Best price I've found for an extended warranty for my Freestyle is at myfordwarranty.com. They beat EVERY other source I've checked, including fordwarrantys.com.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe sometime in the '07 model year Ford extended their warranty to try and help sales. This unfortunately would not apply to your '06 or my '05 Freestyle.

If memory serves.. I believe that Ford went to a 5 yr/60k powertrain warranty on all '07 Freestyles in August 2006. It was made retroactive to all '07s that had already been sold.. and was also applied to all unsold '06 models still on lots at that time.
