#59 of 76 Catalytic converter problems
Dec 15, 2012 (7:38 pm)
Own a 2006 Freestyle for 6 years and have 165,000 that's the good news bad news car rpm revs one day while passing then dies out. Told this is a catalytic converter problem was wondering if this is related to the warranty extension we just received from Ford regarding rpm lunging. Have others experienced similar problems. Would like to fix but black value of running freestyle maybe less than cost to repair.

We started having problems with the freestyle. The wrench light comes on and then car does not accelerate properly. When you turn off the car, and then turn on again, wrench light is off and all is back to normal. Its been happening more and more.

I purchased a 07 freestyle in 2011. My transmission went in September of 2011. It was fixed by the dealership where the vehicle was purchased. July of 2012 the transmission has gone again. Mind you the company that made this specific CVT Transmission is no longer in business. I am pissed off that a vehicle I purchased less than 2 years a go is a LEMON. I contacted Ford Motor Company but they can care less about me cause they already got my money. As I write this message the vehicle sits in my garage, while I'm still making car note and car insurance payments on a vehicle that I haven't driven since June of 2012. When I call the Ford dealership near my home they say the estimation to get my truck fixed is about 7000 and the parts are on back order. I'm a single mother and can't afford this headache. I am open to any and all suggestions. Please Help!

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.
