FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on June 01, 2004.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with EQUIPMENT . this is a general compliant about my 2004 ford freestar. the problems started almost immediately after driving the car away from the dealer. 1. i was at a stop light and the rubber cover fell off of the brake pedal. 2. the next thing was the keyless remote worked about 50% of the time to open the passenger doors. 3. then after about the first 500 miles of driving, the steering wheel oscillated in my hands when coming to a stop. 4. also when driving there were several annoying sounds. 5 finally, and this is the most annoying of all, i can't run the heater in the cold weather because excessive hot air comes from the defrost vents even though i have the control set to 'floor vents' only. now what has the ford dealers done about the problems? 1. i replaced the rubber cover on the brake pedal. 2. the dealers refuse to fix the keyless remote problem. they claim it is working fine even though i took it to independent alarm tech who told me the 'unlock all' receiver needs to be replaced. 3. the oscillation of the steering wheel while stopping was ' fixed' by one dealer by grinding down a warped brake rotor. this repair, which i objected to ford not replacing the rotor with a new rotor, only lasted a few thousand miles and the problem recurred. i took it to another dealer who replaced the bad rotor. 4. one of the annoying sounds was fixed by one dealer but not all of the sounds. i took it to another dealer and all were fixed. 5. the dealers refuse to fix the problem of excessive hot air coming from the defrost vent. i have to duct tape over the defrost vent to be able run the heater. then i have to pull the duct tape away if the windshield fogs over inside the car. in general i think the quality of this car is the worst that i have ever owned and i have owned several new cars in my almost 70 years of age. *jb.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):2FMZA51604B.

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 11, 2007.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTS:DISC:CALIPER . on 4/11/07 ford service department. informed me the rear brakes & rotors on the 04 freestar were shot and needed immediate replacement at a cost of $575.00.i thought they were lying to me because i had more than 20 different cars,trucks,& vans, but never had factory installed brake pads wear out at 20000 miles ,and especially rotor damage so bad that they had to be replaced. also there was no warning signs like a grinding noise or a pulsating brake pedal. nothing. so i mentioned the 3/36 bumper 2 bumper warranty ,and the 6/75000 esp plus deluxe extended warranty w/$0 deductible , and i was told this was a wear item , and was not covered. they said i probably rode the brake pedal or drove with the parking brake on. i didn't drive with 2 feet and never used the parking brake. i asked how long were the brakes designed to last under normal use, .they didn't know. so i left the dealer, and went to an independant ex ford mechanic , who determined to find a frozen caliper or something else defective.what we found was not what i was expecting.the calipers were not frozen, and the pads were not completely worn down although the outer pads were twice as worn as the inner pads,there was no metal to metal contact(rivets or pad backing).it seems that the metallic or semi-metallic pads themselves would rust a bit and since the front brakes do most of the stopping,t he rust on the rear pads never completely wore off each day and the pads and rotors never heated up enough to built up the glaze like the front pads.so the rotors were gouged by the rust build up on the pads. when examined closely,the deep gouges on the rotors lined up with the rust build up on the pads. *ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 22651 miles.

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 24, 2007.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . my wife was driving our 2004 ford freestar to work. she was stopped at a red light on a freeway overpass ready to enter the freeway. when the light turned green and she took her foot off the brake the van would not move. the vans transmission has been diagnosed be the dealer as the problem. there were no warning signs or warning lights to the failure. she was lucky that the van did not die on the freeway 20 feet away and that she did not roll into the car behind her. the van has 62,000 miles on it. after reviewing edmunds comment boards on the ford freestar it seems that this is a common occurrence. apparently, others have had the same problem with the transmission failing without notice. one poster was going 40mph when his van died. this in my opinion is a severe safety hazard and ford should be recalling these vehicles and reimbursing people for new transmissions. a transmission should not fail at 60,000 miles and without any warning. *tr.Mileage was 62000 miles.

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on Nov 15, 2007.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . on 11/15/07, my wife was driving our 2004 ford freestar with 45,000 miles near our home, (luckily), when, without warning of any kind, the transmission failed, rendering the vehicle inoperable. the vehicle simply would not move under it's own power and stopped in an intersection with traffic. i contacted the dealer i bought it from the next day and was told by the service writer that ford was unaware of any problems with this year and model. obviously, this was a lie. i then had the vehicle towed to the local aamco dealer. the operator of the aamco dealer is a retired ford technician with over 20 years of experience. in fact, he maintains his ford certification. not only did he inspect the transmission and find it to be defective, but he also advised me that ours is the third vehicle of this make and model with this same exact transmission failure in the last week or so. all 3 vehicles have around the same mileage as well. so far, fords customer satisfaction center in dearborn has been less than helpful and is stonewalling me on a resolution. i am awaiting a phone call from a supervisor at the call center but i am not holding my breath. i have contacted an attorney and meet with them this week. the vehicle needs a new transmission and we are without transportation until the issue is resolved. this is a serious defect that the public needs to be aware of. this is a family vehicle that was marketed for its safety. the vehicle is unsafe and the public needs to be aware and ford needs to take the lead and step up to the plate and do the right thing. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 45000 miles.

Ford Freestar 2004 Power Train Automatic Transmission Review #10221403

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 24, 2006.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . in oct. my two year old and i were in a left lane on the expressway in flint during rush hour when the transmission went out. somehow i made it to the side of the road. cars were swerving around us. people helping me push the car said they can't believe we weren't hit. it was terrifying. the car only had 79,000 miles. this was just the beginning of our journey. we already had numerous problems with the back tailgate (a design flaw i'm told), sliding doors to the power steering. after a couple months because of arranging funding and getting a new trans the car was back. i drove my husbands lease on my 4 days 50 mile each way a week commute putting us way over the miles on his lease. 4 weeks later the light was on and the trans shop had it for about 3 weeks while they kept replacing parts to get it working. we got it back and within a month had it back in for service. my son and i spent the day at the shop. the light was back on within a month. on 6/21/07 we dropped it off. we got it back the end of august. the trans shop got ford involved and the trans shop replaced several parts of the transmission. the torque converter, which i read complaints about, was one of the things replaced - i don't know how many times. i contacted ford long before this and got nowhere with them. we got the car back and a month later the light came on. the trans shop decided to start over and get another complete transmission and replace it. they ordered it and the van went in again for a couple of weeks. for the last two months we haven't had any problems. ford absolutely, 100%, has not stood behind this vehicle. it's a miracle my son and i weren't injured or killed when it first went out. it's only a matter of time before someone is seriously injured or killed. i was surprised when i saw on edmunds all the people complaining about this same problem. i bought this vehicle because i wanted a safe and reliable car for my child. what a joke! *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 79000 miles.

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 25, 2008.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . on christmas, my husband, 3 year old and i were driving on the freeway to visit family an hour away. 20 minutes into the trip we decided to stop at a gas station to get a snack for my son, but once we pulled off we realized it was closed. while heading for the drive to get back to the highway, the engine suddenly just revved, not sending any power to the gas pedal in either drive or reverse. the car directly behind us luckily avoided rear-ending us. as we were stranded in a driveway with curbs on either side, we had to get out and divert several others to back away and use a different drive. another van had to physically push us back down the drive into the meter parking lot so we were out of the way of more traffic. we then had to call my father (interrupting his christmas celebration) who lives 40 minutes away to pick us up and drive us back to our house so we could switch to our other car. we ended up getting to our christmas celebration over 2 hours late, and had to entertain a confused and tired 3 year old during that entire time! overall, we're thankful that we decided to pull off the freeway or else it would have blown while we were driving 70 mph--and who knows what might have happened. our freestar is only at 69,000 miles, and will need a new torque converter and rebuilt transmission, estimated at $2200, plus towing fees. since this happened over the holidays, when garages are closed for many days, we also have to pay for a rental car for 2-3 days until our van is done next week. when my husband initially talked with our ford dealer on 12/26, the service guy admitted that this is very common with this model. when i called the same place today (12/31), someone else told me curtly that he is "not aware that there are a high number of vehicles with this problem." he said that the corp. won't do anything for a car with "this kind of mileage" since we don't have the extended warranty. we're frustrated that this has been allowed to happen so often. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 69645 miles.

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 29, 2009.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . the transmission on my 2004 ford freestar with only 60,000 km's failed on a busy iowa interstate on our trip to florida. i had to push the van by hand to get it to the exit lane with vehicles passing by at full interstate speeds. it was fortunate for my wife and i that this incident did not end in a tragedy. the van was towed to a repair shop where the transmission was removed and sent to a transmission repair shop. a new torque converter was installed and after a 2 day delay we were back on the road. when i returned back to canada i contacted ford canada in an effort to be reimbursed for the $1,500.00 canadian that i spent for repairs. ford canada refused to honor the claim for the following reasons. the repair was not done by a ford dealer and i failed to have the 50,000 km inspection performed on this vehicle. when i checked the internet i find that this vehicle has a bad history of failure due to faulty torque converters. this is a problem that i am sure ford is fully aware of. the transmission shop that repaired this transmission for me used upgraded parts as they have experienced this problem on many of the 2004 freestars. the warranty on the repaired transmission is now from another parts provider. i believe that if i had this vehicle repaired at a ford dealer they would have installed the same replacement parts that failed prematurely on this van. i know that i am in a no win battle with ford. what does bother me is how unconcerned ford is towards their customers. during my discussion with the ford service representative there was never any type of an expressed apology for the stress my wife and i experienced during this incident. this will be my last ford. *tr.Mileage was 39000 miles.

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 16, 2009.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . on may 16, 2009 i was leaving houston in heavy saturday afternoon traffic. i was driving my 2004 freestar in the number one lane at the 65 mph speed limit when suddenly, with no warning,i was in neutral with the engine revving. for several heart stopping minutes i couldn't get cars to let me over to the shoulder, and, by the time they did, i was barely coasting. i was able to immediately exit and rolled to a stop on the access road. i discovered the car wouldn't engage in any gear. after an hour and a half wait for a tow truck in 95 degree weather, it was towed to the nearest ford dealer. the vehicle was in the shop for a week. the service advisor reported that the torque converter pump shaft splines had stripped and had taken out the transmission. the repair bill came to $3493.71. the rental car costs to get me home to waco, texas and back after the car was repaired $466.90. when i picked up my van, i talked with the service manager, showing him the myriad complaints to nhtsa about the same problem in the 2004 freestar. although he was sympathetic, he was also non committal about the issue. i asked him if the rebuilt transmission had the same torque converter as the original. he said "yes" that they could only replace parts with the parts that were indicated for that specific vehicle. i am a 65 year old woman and had another senior friend and two dogs with me when the car died. the very real threat of being hit on a busy highway following a problem like this was scary enough, but the realization that it could have happened an hour later on a two lane road while passing a semi almost did me in.*tr .Mileage was 67893 miles.

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on July 09, 2010.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . how long will it be before nhtsa holds ford company responsible for the costs of repairs to ford freestar minivans experiencing torque converter and subsequent transmission defects. this is a dangerous defect. do we need to wait until a child, mother or father is killed. this is primarily a family vehicle or handicapped accessible vehicle, therefore it is an urgent matter, my daughters 2004 freestar lost gear engagement while she was leaving for work. thankfully she was only in the driveway. 2 miles further and she would have been on a major interstate and traveling at speeds of 55-65 mph with other vehicles. her van suddenly stopped moving forward, and instead the engine revved as she was accelerating. the van rolled backward as if in neutral. we were unable to engage any gears. only park engaged. it was towed to a ford dealership for diagnosis. we were told it needed a new transmission and there were "pieces" all over the inside of the transmission. there was no explanation as to what those pieces were. after reading all the complaints on freestar torque converters and transmissions, i am convinced those pieces are the splies from the torque converter. there were no warnings, no prior operational issues or performance symptoms typical of transmission problems - no slipping, no slamming. this sudden loss of momentum is a serious, life threatening problem. if it occurs on a highway, there is the potential of another vehicle slamming into the back of it at a high rate of speed. ford needs to be responsible for this defect by issuing an immediate recall and replacing all torque converters and transmissions on these vehicles and reimbursement for those already replaced. unfortunately until the source of the torque converter problem is addressed, those who have already replaced them face the possibility of future failure.they are being replaced with the same poor quality part. step up nhtsa and address this immediately with ford before a life is lost. *tr.Mileage was 52000 miles.

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on Sept 01, 2007.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . we purchased a 2004 ford freestar limited mini-van with 36,000 miles in june 2007 from the local ford dealership. three months later while driving on the interstate headed for vacation, the van lost power without warning and we coasted to a stop on the shoulder of the highway. fortunately, we had only gotten about 15 miles outside of our home city. unfortunately, after having the vehicle towed to the dealership where we purchased the van, we learned that the transmission went out. owned for approximately 3 months, just over 36,000 miles, two small children in the van traveling at close to 70mph and packed with luggage for a family vacation...all i can say is i was very disappointed. ford did pay for half the cost, however, i still paid $1,500 out of pocket to fix the transmission, $ for towing, and $ to rent another van while this one was being fixed. ford told me that the 3 year warranty had already expired. we still own the van and have had many other problems, of which some are still not fixed. we are now closing in on 70,000 miles and i'm very concerned that we will soon experience another transmission problem. i would get rid of this vehicle in a heartbeat, but i'm still upside down as this purchase will easily go down as the worst decision i will make when it comes to buying a vehicle in my lifetime. *tr.Mileage was 36200 miles.

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 29, 2009.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i purchased a 2004 ford freestar with 28,389 miles on 6/16/08. in october 2009 my wife was driving the van and when she stopped at a stop sign & tried to turn on the next road, the van wouldn't go. the van acted as if it were in neutral. the van was still running but wouldn't go in to any gears at all. she called me & we had to have the van towed. we had bought an extended warranty/insurance policy on the car so the dealership told us which transmission shop to have the van towed to. we took the van & after almost 2 weeks, the van was repaired. we had to pay for a rental car during the time & pay the deductible for the warranty/insurance to have it repaired. the repair shop said they had to put a rebuilt transmission in the vehicle because the one in it had water. six months later, in may 2010, the transmission did the exact same thing. we contacted the repair shop that had worked on the transmission previously said the transmission appeared to have water in it and the insurance/warranty wouldn't cover it. we had to take the vehicle to another shop for repairs. we took it to a repair shop in our neighborhood that we have known the owner for a long time & know to be very trust worthy. he looked at the transmission as well & said some how there was water in the transmission. he had to put another transmission in the vehicle also. since he has put the rebuilt transmission in the vehicle, we are still having problems. the van does fine until after it has been driven for a few hours. it seems the warmer the transmission gets, the more it begins to shift hard, start jerking, & acts like it doesn't want to go. we have had 2 rebuilt transmissions put in, had to rent a vehicle twice, had to have it towed twice, still have payments for another 3 years, & aren't any better off than we were before the vehicle was fixed the first time. the vehicle only has 62, 173 miles on it. i don't know how a vehicle with such little mileage can have the same problem with 2 transmissions. *tr.Mileage was 51887 miles.

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on Dec 17, 2010.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i have a 04 ford freestar that continues to have transmission problems. it started early around 40k. fmc service stated ¿just a leak¿. repeat complaints equaled ¿nothing found, etc, etc¿. beginning last year it would lose power and backfire while the transmission would not engage and almost caused my wife and daughter to be broadsided when she tried to pull out in traffic and the van did not go forward. the transmission would slip and not engage to second gear. i took it to aamco and paid $1800 to have it fixed. they said they had to basically replace everything. now, a year later and it is doing it again, but this time by not engaging into second gear, it caused a person behind me to get hit in the rear because he thought i would turn as a normal car would, but i couldn't accelerate due to the trans. additionally now it will shudder, shake and lose power at 40 to 50 mph. it is not even drivable as i tried to go out to the store today and it made terrible noises and shook like crazy when put into reverse. tried to go up my driveway and it shook even harder and made terrible grinding noises in drive, 3rd and 1st gear. does not matter what position the shifter is in, it has problems. looked at the dip stick for the trans and it is rusted showing that obviously now some type of water is in the system too. i am disabled and on a disability income and do not have the funds to have this repaired again. ford will do nothing for it unless of course i want to pay to have it rebuilt at $4000. this van is a danger to all on the road and luckily no one has been killed as a result of it not pulling out into traffic as it should. please force ford to buy back these vans and refund the expenses of people who had to pay to have it fixed. for me, it looks like it is going to be a double trouble problem. i do not know what to do, i know it will just break down again if i do have it fixed. the van needs to be taken to a junk yard and crushed to save lives. *tr.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 2 person(s) were injured.

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 28, 2011.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . while driving with our two daughters in the car on memorial day weekend, my wife was 30 miles from home, made a right turn at an intersection and car just stopped driving. vehicle engine remained running but unable to make the car drive. waited two hours for aaa to show up and tow her to a garage. three days later we were told that the garage could not fix the van because it was a transmission issue and they were not a transmission shop. called aaa again to have vehicle towed 30 miles to our local shop. i was aware to not bring it to a ford dealership to have it fixed because they will put the same bad part in the transmission again and would have another failure. rebuilt transmission was installed with better torque converter than a ford dealership would put in. rebuilt transmission has a 4 year/100,000 mile guarantee. i have been aware of the ongoing torque converter issues with these vans and had expected this one to break as well. i sent an email to nhtsa last year with my concerns and got no response from them. this van had 80000 miles on it. this problem needs to be addressed with ford. luckily noone has been seriously injured in these break downs but it is only a matter of time. there has been a serious failure of oversight into ford motor company by nhtsa not to make ford recall these vehicles considering there has been so many with the same problems. *tr.Mileage was 80000 miles.

FORD FREESTAR 2004 car safety problem was reported on June 05, 2011.FORD FREESTAR 2004, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN . i have 2004 ford freestar van & have been having problems with it suddenly loosing power and loss of acceleration. i had to have the transmission replaced at 68,000 miles and van seemed to run fine for while then about 2 weeks ago with 109,000 miles i was leaving work after late shift at hospital & van would not get any power or accelerate. i was left stranded in downtown area that is known for crime and homeless. i was able to get ride home & had van towed, after over $300 van was running again. i was on way to work on 6-5-2011 & same thing happened to van, no power or accel, late in evening ,woman by myself on street where many hoodlums frequent. i was very fearful of my safety. i was able to get tow from aaa & ride to work. i'm still without my van after 2 weeks. the mechanic who originally fixed it can't get it to keep running again now, some defect in van is apparently causing coil packs to go bad and melting fuses into fuse box, this is somehow making computer system malfunction & sending various error codes that clear when fuses are replaced but fuses aren't able to be maintained and continue to blow and melt into fuse box repeating cycle, therefore van is not drivable at this time. it has been sent to another mechanic who is currently trying to fix it. i work about 30 miles from my home, i have young children that i have to take places, & have to drive to get to any stores for food &/or supplies. i am fearful if my van is fixed that it will break down again & i won't be as lucky as the last few times and me &/or my family will be injured in accident or worse. i hope this information is helpful .thank you. *tr.Mileage was 109000 miles.
