Yes we also had to replace motor mount. Ford has denied all problems. It has been 10 months since my elderly parents have been able to drive their freestyle. We have given up and have bought a car for them to drive. So proud of ford....what more American than completely screwing your customers. My advice..... Dont buy ford!!!!!!

Hello.....read with interest your posting regarding the Freestyle. As we've had lunging problems, could you please tell me the name of the law firm to contact regarding the lawsuit. I would surely appreciate it.

The attorney we were given number for was in California. Didn't help me because I am not from that state. I don't have that number any longer, but I did get it off of this sight. Look for older posts...might help.
Honestly we did not get any help. We finally purchased a different car for my parents (not a ford) to drive as theirs is not drivable because ford tore it apart waiting to put in a new transmission (which they no longer make and have not been able to a new one to put in it) The car has been sitting in the back lot at ford, along with their junk, waiting for parts. It has been there since October of 2011. As for the surging with the motor mount...we fixed that with a new motor mount that Ford denied being a problem.
With all the summer parades....I urge you to use your crap ford freestyle as a reason to not by fords. They are not safe to be driven....but could make a darn good float! Show your fellow Americans Ford tough...hahahha!
Best of Luck!

Hi, I do thank you for your response. It's really troubling to have vehicle problems that were the fault of Ford Motor and no one gives a crap! I will say, tho', our Freestyle has 125,000 and up to this problem we've been real pleased. I've (77yrs old) always driven a Ford but maybe it's time I change my way of thinking! Again, thanks for your input. I've written to Ford and the NHTSA twice....if I hear anything positive I'll post it!! Mmmm, I do have my doubts here.

Hi, I had e-mailed the Gerard Gibbs law firm in California and was totally surprised to get a phone call from them. They are starting a class action lawsuit in that state but have been receiving so many calls, etc. from Freestyle owners throughout the United States they would like all the info they can get...the more info they get the better their chances in court. Also, that would be a big help to the rest of the Freestyle owners. I told them all the details of lunging, etc. and they do want more info if I have any. They are also going to keep me updated. I found the law firm when I googled 'lawsuit, Freestyle'. Thanks for your reply and if I hear anything I'll let you know!

I been having the same problems with my 2006 Ford Freestyle and yes its freestyling alright.. First i purchased the vehicle used so i made sure transmission and all was good to go. Well I have been having issues with the wrench light coming on and they state its an electrical problem cause the transmission is good. Then the A/C starting slowly going out so i purchased a new compressor, and now that the compressor is fixed all of a sudden my car starts acting up not even a full day later and i was informed that it was the throttle body and they can clean it but eventually it will need to be replaced. Not to top it off the car takes off on its on DANGEROUS, so i cant drive in it with my children anymore cause of the danger. so today husband drives truck to work and it stops on him right in the middle of rush hour traffic. AM I PISSED HECK YEA..FORD NEEDS TO RECALL THIS DANGEROUS VEHICLE FAST.

I unknowingly bought 2006 fordford freestyle car with cracked motor mount after showing engine took it into ford where they told me was not covered under warenty. (When purchasing warenty they lied told me everything was covered I said even dvd they said yes) they said would not replace until broke all the way. By the time my engine was noisy from broken motor mount then then said again was not covered. Very expensive repair. Now my car is surging thank god my foot was on break. Happened several times when idling and driving. then wrench light had come on while going up a hill. The car had no power wouldnt go over 40 mph took it to ford they said it was throttle body which of course is not covered under warenty. I only have around thousand miles til warenty is up on transmission"> I am now very concerned. I have also had to replace my brakes. We are a ford family my daughter has a escape my son a mustang my husband a ranger my oldest just bought a brand new truck not a ford due to all the problems with ford...I love my car but not a ford fan now Dlvandykeaol.com
