Please....notify the NHTSA and Ford Motor Company REPEATEDLY. Perseverance does pay off, believe me! After a year of complaining I, and other Freestyle owners, finally got a response to our lunging problem. I, and I believe others, received a letter from Ford.....we are being reimbursed for the cost to have our Freestyle repaired. Our Ford dealer called Friday to tell us our check was in the mail. Again, DON'T GIVE UP....KEEP NOTIFYING BOTH!!! Good luck!

I understand and feel your pain. I'm also a single parent who is paying for a vehicle I can't drive. I'm still paying the note on it and insurance. my car has been sitting since May 2012. I've had my Ford checked inside out and upside down. They told me that they couldn't tell what the problem was. Several times while driving my car stopped in ongoing traffic. This scared me soooo bad, especially when my then one year old god daughter was in the car and there were several cars behind us. I was lucky I was turning on a side street and was about to coast to an opened parking spot. I would like to know if there is an lawsuit in place. Please, please, please helppppppp.

The "complaint" site at the NHTSA is called safercar.gov. They've kind of buried the link from the NHTSA main page.

Keep 'bugging' NHTSA and the Ford Motor Company. I and others did when we had a lunging problem. They finally came through with a check after much complaining, believe me. Good luck!!!!!

I have a 2007 Freestyle. This car is awesome. We love the way the interior seats work. The bucket seats are a plus for my teenage boys. My parents also have a 2007. I have read a lot of the post here hate to see you are having problems.The only thing I have is sometimes a surge. The same with my parents. This has been happening since day 1. Other than normal oil changes at 3,000 miles I had to replace a battery. My Freestlye has over 300,000 miles on it. My parents have 190,000 with no problems. Its no fluke we have had no problems. With regular maintenance they are great. I can only say this forum has only a few people who have a Freestyle and are not happy. However there are thousands of us that cruise right along. Remember you are a small few. Good luck, Rock on Freestyle!!!!!

This surge is a problem, believe me. We nearly ran over people in the parking lot at our local restaurant. I'm surprised you haven't received a letter form the Ford Motor Company. This issue can be resolved at your local Ford Dealer. I urge you to either ask your local dealer or the Ford Motor Company!
