Ford Freestyle 2005 Fuel System, Other Review #10116352

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Apr 04, 2005.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, OTHER . i recently purchased a new 2005 ford freestyle. we have found this to be a very ood automobile except for one notable defect. this defect is described below.*ak the automobile's specifications indicate that is has a 19 gallon fuel tank. the fuel gauge and instrumentation panel computer all calculate fuel usage based upon a 16 gallon fuel tank. for example, if the fuel gauge indicates 1/2 full, the fuel used is approximately 7.5 to 8 gallons. the fuel gauge will be at empty (and low fuel light come on) at 15.5 to 16 gallons of fuel used. after numerous phone calls, a local ford sales manager indicates that the ford freestyle has a 3 gallon reserve in the tank. all cars i've owned have a 0.5 to 1 gallon fuel reserve but never anything as large as 3 gallons. the owners manual addresses this issue on page 260 as follows: "the advertised capacity is the amount of the indicated capacity and the empty reserve combined. indicated capacity is the difference in the amount of fuel in a full tank and a tank when the fuel gauge indicates empty. empty reserve is the small amount of fuel remaining in the fuel tank after the fuel gauge indicates empty" is 3 gallons a small amount of fuel? this amount of fuel provides almost 60-72 miles of additional driving range based upon the projected fuel consumption. 3 gallons is almost 16% of the total fuel capacity!!! the bottom line is that this must be considered false advertising at a minimum. numerous websites (edmunds.com, etc.) will publish driving range of this car based upon a 19 gallon fuel tank. based upon the fuel gauge, computer and low fuel indicators, the driving range would be reduced by ~16%. we believe this is a design defect. dealers acknowledge that their is no technical problem. we hope that you can make ford motor company aware of this condition and indicate that a they should fix the problem via a technical service bulletin. .Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDK06125G.

Ford Freestyle 2005 Fuel System, Other Storage Fuel Gauge System Review #10131174

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on July 30, 2005.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, OTHER:STORAGE:FUEL GAUGE SYSTEM . for a few days, our family had been vacationing in the mountains of ruidoso, new mexico. before heading home to texas, we filled the gas tank in our 2005 ford freestyle. shortly after leaving ruidoso on our way home, the fuel gauge suddenly went from full to empty. we stopped by the side of the road not knowing if something had happened to our fuel tank but knowing that we should have a full tank of gas. the fuel gauge would jump intermittently from indicating that there was gas to empty which continued the entire trip. the check engine light came on the control panel and also a message to check the engine. this continued the entire time. when we returned home, we immediately took the car to the ford dealership to be repaired. after keeping it a day, they informed us that ford was aware of the problem with the fuel gauge on the freestyle but didn't know what to do about it. so, we were told that we would just have to deal with it until ford comes up with a solution which will probably take a few months. the check engine message and light, they said, must be related to this. we are concerned about this greatly because we need a reliable car and distances are far in this part of the country. waiting a few months for a repair of something essential does not seem to be a viable option but pollard ford in lubbock, texas has given us no other choice. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMZK02165G.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Aug 01, 2005.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES:DOORS:LATCH . after purchasing a new 2005 ford freestyle i noticed that the rear doors would not unlock from inside or outside after the engine was turned off. i was told by ford dealer that it is a safety issue. in order to open the rear doors, you have to hit the electronic door lock switch from the driver or pull the lock rod located at each door. my concern is that if an accident occurred and something happened to the electrical system, the rear passengers would be trapped and rescuers on the outside could not open the doors. my wife drives daily with young grandchildren inside and they could not open the doors using the lock-rods. if this really was a safety situation as ford describes it, then the front doors should not open either. upon further investigation, i found that my 2003 ford expedition operates in the same manner. this potential problem could be taken care of with a simple computer code change. as it stands, i believe that serious injuries could be expected with trapped children or handicapped in the rear seats. *jb.Ford Freestyle 2005 problem was reported in ALBUQUERQUE, NM.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Apr 15, 2006.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . 2005 ford freestyle. the continuously variable transmission has a defect in that it will sporadically and randomly dramatically change gear ratios resulting in a very noticeable increase in rpm. the consequence of this is that the engine undergoes moderate to severe engine braking significantly slowing down the car without warning. this has caused a number of near accidents as cars following closely behind have no warning that the car will slow down very aggressively in front of them. i have reported the defect to my local ford dealer (frontier ford in sunnyvale, california) and it has been in their service department three separate times and they have been unable to repair the problem and have not provided acceptable options to fix the problem, apparently unconcerned about the significant safety risk posed by the defect. the most recent incident occurred saturday april 15, 2006. *jb.Mileage was 7900 miles.

(this is descriptive, not an explanation!) we paid the costs of the rotor resurfacing and the new pads. i was told the pad wear was even and the calipers are working properly. obviously someone messed up their sums in designing the brake system, since this front wheel drive, front engined, softly sprung car should use its front brakes much more than the rears to generate its stopping power. if the rears are wearing out pads twice as fast as the fronts, they are not "quite right." perhaps bigger rear brakes and a proportioning valve adjustment are what is needed, but ford has missed the boat here and it will cost us, of course. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 28000 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 20, 2007.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . leaks water from wet weather into vehicle's cargo area and front passenger floor area. freezing to sub-freezing temps cause water to freeze carpet and anything in car with moisture on it. first time this was apparent, car was in for recall on door latches; at that time, we told dealer about water leak in cargo area after it has just rained - they said they could not find the leak, and therefore never filed with ford. second time car was in was at the end of december '06 for a water leak on front passenger floor. dealer said they spent more than an hour water testing until it did leak in their presence. said they removed areas of carpet and doors where water was coming in, fixed seal, and dried out carpet before re-installing and giving car back to us (keep in mind this is roughly 11-12 total hours of labor). a month later, we are in the same position after a light snow (1-2"). this time, however, the front passenger floor and rear cargo area are soaking wet. dealer has had car for almost a full week. ordered new carpet for front and rear, replaced any panels and electronics associated with where water was coming in, said they have made fixes to seals where water is now coming in *another 12-14 hours). still waiting for vehicle to be returned. dealer says that, although we have the highest end warranty you can buy through them at 7 years/75,000 miles, this problem will more than likely not be covered beyond the 3yr/36,000 mile manufacturer's warranty. we are talking roughly 25 hours of labor at almost $100/hr. i cannot afford $2,500/month. what is ford going to do about this? there is a blog online, http://www.ford-forums.com/ford-freestyle/3008-water-leak-issues.html, about this very problem, hosted by ford, yet there are zero technical service bulletins (tsbs) or complaints posted on this (nhtsa) site. *nm.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDK06105G.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Feb 02, 2007.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with TIRES . i was driving on the highway at about 75-80 just 5 mph over the speed limit here in florida. i heard a dunk,dunk,dunk then a huge thump and the car went swerving out of control, i tried to get to the left median..i was in the left lane... i wound up doing a 360 degree circle into oncoming traffic then another onto the right shoulder. i was driving my fathers freestyle. the tire, exploded, there are only 8000 miles on the car, its almost a yr old. things like this shouldn't be happening. i normally drive a 1996 escort which i have also had many many problems with. i am unhappy with ford and angry with the way they brush it off. they say oh, it must have been the tire companies fault. don't they test drive their vehicles before they put them on the market? they know common problems... i almost died during my 360 degree turns on the highway today, watching a 16 wheeler come at me...i was lucky it missed. its a shame the outside of fords look so nice but its everything else that matters... i would much rather drive a toyota - and i would be safer on a bicycle. *jb.Mileage was 7998 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 22, 2007.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . on december 22, 2007 my 2005 ford freestyle car was making noise on my entire 30 mile trip to work. i took a guy from work for a ride and he told me he was pretty sure it was my rear brakes. the car warranty had just expired, i had approx. 36, 800 miles on it. we took it to the closest place who could look at it right away, this was an independent shop. they informed me that my rear brakes, rotors and 1 caliper required replacing. the caliper had locked up and i had no brake pads left. they also told my husband that i was very lucky i didn't drive much farther as it was very dangerous. the shop said it looked like i had been driving around with the parking brake on. i never use my parking brake and there is a large light that comes on the instrument panel when it is on! upon urging from friends who couldn't believe how early the rear brakes needing replacing i did a little research and found so many forums and complaints about the exact problem. i shudder to think what could have happened to my family and i had i not gone to the closest place. ford customer support told me they had a "customer satisfaction plan" in place for this issue. i was told to take my receipt for the repair to my ford dealer and they would submit it for reimbursement because it happened prior to dec. 31, 2007. even though i was over 36k. ford customer support just informed me today that they will not reimburse me because the dealer did not do the repairs. i can not believe ford knows of this major safety concern and has not issued a voluntary recall. when the supervisor at ford customer support told me i should have taken it to the dealer instead of the closest place i asked him "what if i would have had an accident and died on the way to the ford dealer?" his response was..."i don't know, i don't have a crystal ball". safety and concern for their customers is obviously not a big concern. *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 36800 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Feb 06, 2008.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK . i own a 2005 ford freestyle and there are 45,854 miles on the car. over the previous few months, while backing up, i heard a grinding noise from the rear of the car. as a retired salesman who drove over 1,000,000 miles without replacing any brakes on a car, i did not immediately come to the conclusion that this noise was coming from the rear brakes. i was under the impression that the front brakes historically would fail before the rear brakes would. i finally did take the car to brakes only america, inc., in lansing, mi, where i was told that the entire rear brake system was worn out. i had to have the rotors and pads replaced for a cost of $269.85. staff at the brakes only store told me that the quality of the rear disc brakes are not of the same quality as the front, which on my car, are still in very good condition. i contacted ford motor company today, march 3, 2008, and they told me that until december 31, 2007, the company reviewed each complaint regarding these rear brakes on an individual basis, even after the expiration of the warranty. because of the timing of my rear brakes failing, ford said that it could not help me with this matter. if there was a recall from ford, i did not receive this notification. *tr .Mileage was 45854 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 14, 2008.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTS . on my 2005 ford freestyle with 21,400 miles the rear brake pads were worn with less than 3 mm of pad remaining. at 6 days past my 3 yr / 36 k mi. warranty, ford cust service and ford corporate said there was nothing they could do to help me. they did admit that they extended the rear brake warranty to 3 yr/ 36 k mi - however i was past the 3 yr date (even if by 6 days) -- thankfully my dealer contacted their ford rep and he authorized the entire rear brakes to be replaced -- my copay was $119.68 vs $475.00. i grilled them as to what all was replaced and they said the pads, rotors, and caliper mounting plates and brackets and bolts etc. they said they rear brake issues that most everybody is having is due to the wrong caliper mounting hardware used. this caused the calipers to be always miss- aligned and excessive pad and rotor wear. simply replacing pads and rotors will not fix the actual cause of the problem (the mis-aligned calipers) hopefully this may help someone who is replacing pads and rotors every 7k mi. fords indifference to this problem is absolutely un-acceptable. i wish all of our complaints could be submitted to an attorney for a class action suit. it seems ford does not want offer a fix for this unless you catch it while under warranty. hope this helps. *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 21400 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 11, 2007.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . the rear cargo area on my 2005 ford freestyle began to leak shortly after the purchase from bob bell ford. it has been in and out of the dealer 4 or 5 times. they keep it for a week or more. replace the carpet. remove the mold that has begun to grow in the rear cargo area. replaced the carpets and mask the smell with deodorizer. the work is always performed by a sub-contractor hired by ford. the company visits the dealer here in maryland twice a week, which makes you wonder how bad the ford products are. the paperwork is written so that you can't tell what repairs if any are ever conducted. the dealers paperwork provides little or no detail and when asked about the repairs, the service writer acts as if you are bothering him for the details. of course the vehicle has returned to the dealer again for more water leaks. the ford corporate complaint office has been contacted regarding the problem. they act as if this has never happened before. we were advised that someone would call us back in two days. both office and home numbers have been provided to ford in hopes of a real contact with someone that can fix the problem. so they keep calling the house and leaving a message. yet they will not return three voice mail messages that i left today. ford did offer an extended warranty, but as soon as they offered it they stated they couldn't make the offer and it wouldn't cover the water leak anyway. how stupid. we are very frustrated with bob bell ford, ford and the local glass repair company. we know that this problem exists for many freestyle owners crossing several years 2005-2007. so why can't ford figure out how to fix it. our warranty expires this month. where do we turn next? *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 15195 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 18, 2008.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . on sunday, may 18, 2008, at approximately 11:15 am, my wife was driving my two (2) children to the mall which is located approximately six (6) miles from my residence. my wife related approximately one and a half miles from the mall she felt a pull in the front end of the car and then heard a loud explosion. she attempted to move the car to the side of the road to no avail. the car was then pushed off the roadway. after moving the car a few metal parts were secured from the road surface. i discovered that the transmission had sustained a catastrophic failure. the back of the transmission is missing as well as the parts contained within. the damage to this unit appears to be consistent with damage caused by a detonation. my wife related there were no warning lights, noises or mechanical failures of the vehicle before this incident occurred. i reported this matter to the dealership where the car was purchased. they seemed to show some level of concern after seeing the failed parts and offered to tow the vehicle to their service department free of charge. ford later acknowledged the damage was caused by a failure of the differential. this incident occurred in a rural area. based upon the amount of material which blasted from the transmission, had this incident occurred in town there would have been significant damage to surrounding structures, property, and persons. in closing, the ford corp. has offered to pay only half of the cost at $2,100.00 to repair the damage. in my opinion this is an admission of guilt as i did not ask for any assistance, it was volunteered. i counter offered to pay only the labor costs and requested an answer by cob friday, may 23, 2008. it is not surprising ford failed to respond. accordingly, i am submitting this complaint and request a recall of these transmissions due to the risk of public safety. *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 37411 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Nov 14, 2008.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . transmission failure at 27k miles. i was driving at 40 mph. i accelerated slightly to maintain my speed up a slight grade. i heard a clunk from the transmission area under the dash and then the car lost all acceleration. i had enough speed to coast to a church parking lot where i parked. the engine was idling normally, but the engine would not rev higher when i stepped on the accelerator. the check engine light and check transmission indicator were displayed. i turned the engine off and then restarted it. it idled normally but i still couldn't rev the engine in park or neutral. the car would not move in drive or reverse. the check engine light and check transmission indicator were still displayed. i had the car towed to the ford dealership where i purchased it. the dealership replaced the transmission, clutch, and axle at a cost of $5885. the car is over 3 years old and out of warranty so i was liable for this cost. neither ford nor the dealer would assume any liability for this defective transmission. twice i complained to the dealer, while the car was under warranty, that the car was making a whining sound as i accelerated and the noise grew louder as the speed increased. he couldn't hear anything, either time. i have the work orders to prove it. i assumed it was probably road noise due to tire wear. the whining sound has disappeared since the new transmission was installed. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 27839 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on July 13, 2009.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . i own a 2005 ford freestyle just bought it last year and it has been at bob bell ford for over a week. i was at the beach and the car stalled twice and went in to a fail safe mode. i took it to bob bell ford and they told me that it was the throttle body and that it was on back order until november 2009. i was told that i could come pick up my car and if it breaks down they will come get me. not thinking that i could be involved in a accident if it stalls well driving. i have called headquarters to see what they are going to do for me as far as a rental and they told me they can't do anything for that length of time. this all has to do with the plants being shut down and parts no being made. someone just bought a new gm camaro and had to sign a waiver stating that if the car breaks down they could have to wait 6 months to a year to get parts and they are still responsible for making the payment. the part that i need is on national back order. other people with this same car are having the same problem with this part. just looking to see what can be done because i can not go without a car until november. i have 3 kids and i work 2 jobs to support my family. without a car hoe am i supposed to get back to work. thank you very much for taking the time to help me. *tr.Mileage was 44000 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on July 20, 2009.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN . my ford freestyle surges forward when put i put it in drive from park. it will also surge backwards when the car is put in reverse from the park position. sometimes it will even surge forward in the drive position if i have been sitting at a stoplight idling for too long. on occasion after this occurs the car will stall. sometimes when the car is started again, it acts like it will work fine but then will not drive over 40 mph. this forward surge is so powerful when it occurs that it will jump forward even when my foot is on the brake. it primarily happens after the car has been parked in a parking lot but also occurs while idling at a stop light. when the car jerks forward like this even with the foot on the brake i feel this is a safety hazard. i have read about this happening on the ford freestyle alot. i am concerned that my car will surge into an intersection and i will be in an accident. i am also concerned that i will run over a pedestrian in a parking lot because of this problem. ford says it is the throttle body assembly. the part is on national backorder. according to some accounts i have read this has been on backorder since last year! they know this is a problem yet they keep sending people home from dealerships with these defective dangerous cars. when i called ford customer service to complain they pretended like they were not aware of the problem, but i have seen pages and pages of consumer complaints about this dangerous situation. i am afraid they won't consider this important or dangerous enough to recall until someone is seriously injured or worse. this failure occurs every time i drive the car. the car has been taken to the dealership but no part was available to fix the car. *tr.Mileage was 59000 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Nov 13, 2009.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with STRUCTURE . a defect in ford freestyle 2005. basically, interior leak that is hidden until a person has a need to look at the spare tire in the trunk area. i noticed moisture months ago, but figured that it was rain water that fell in when i opened the hatch. recently, i needed to bring my car in for service and figured that it was time to vacuum, etc., since i maintain my property. sure enough, there has been rusting and rotting--hidden--for a long time. the carpets were wetter--and since i drive with shoes on, i never detected the moisture throughout the floor area--from driving area down to the trunk--mostly along the driver's side. there is tremendous rust on the spare and in the spare compartment--the carpeting is moldy underneath and the floor board has been destroyed by recurrent water damage/mold. i noticed that brown marks on the carpet were not normal wear and tear but rust stains. this would remain a hidden problem if i did not actually pull up some carpet and look. i checked on-line and there are many people who complain of tremendous leakage--throughout the 2005 model. many of these cannot be found or repaired. this can lead to serious mold and rust damage as well as damage to life saving features such as brakes, etc. the car received a great review so my ex-husband and i purchased it. i was told by ford that they would not even consider helping me here since i reported the problem after the warranty had expired. mind you, if i had money for a forensic scientist to assess the dawn of the damage, i am sure that the rust would tell a tale that claims leakage has been taking place for years. i believe that these cars seem to be time bombs waiting to deconstruct. there are many on-line sites where people report leakage. there are many t.b.a.s for this vehicle but leakage is not one of them, although i understand that ford is aware of the problem but will not deal unless forced to do so. i read at least 50 descriptions of water/leakage to body/rotting. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDK06165G.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 31, 2010.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . i have a 2005 ford freestyle. a few months ago i started noticing that it did not accelerate properly. i would go to pull out of an intersection and the car would sluggishly move forward which was extremely dangerous. as time went on it seemed to get worse. lately when i try to accelerate it will all of a sudden jerk forward. finally, today when i was driving down the freeway i completely lost the ability to accelrate although the engine was still running and the "fail safe engine" signal came on. i pulled off tto the side, turned the car off and restarted it which seemed to temporarily solve the problem. i got to where i was going but on the way home it seemed very jerky and unreliable. i called a local ford dealer and they told me it was probably the throttle body and to bring it in tomorrow. it seems as if this is an ongoing and extremely dangerous problem that the freestyle is having. thank god i wasn't pulling out in front of oncoming traffic when it decided to not work! i have three kids and carpool all the time. if ford doesn't do something now they will not only have parts to replace but lawsuits to settle as well when people are seriously injured or killed as a result of their inaction..Mileage was 60000 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 31, 2010.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . while on out of state vacation, our 2005 ford freestyle was idling in park with the ac running. when the car was placed in reverse, it accelerated quickly (unintended) with no input at the accelerator pedal. once i stopped the car, the engine died. when it was restarted, it idled roughly for a minute and then ran ok. this type of unintended acceleration has randomly occurred 6 times total within a period of one week. the last time this occurred, the engine died once the vehicle was stopped. when it was restarted, the wrench light illuminated on the instrument panel. we drove the car to an autoparts store where the codes were read. the codes were p2106 & p061b. when the engine restarted, the wrench light on the instrument panel did not illuminate. we took the car to a local ford dealer and described the events in detail. the ford dealer performed a diagnostic test but no codes were detected. they said we needed a new throttle body. they came to this conclusion because of a technical services bulletin issued by ford (tsb 06-21-1). the car has 79,857 miles so the dealer said it was out of warranty and that there were no recalls on the throttle body. i called ford customer relationship center and was told the same thing. i expressed my concern about the safety issue of the unintended acceleration but their only comment was that is was my responsibility to pay for repairs. we have talked to another party who has had the same occurance with their freestyle. their throttle body was replaced under warranty but has once again started the unattended acceleration. i have also seen several posts on internet forums from people having the same problem. it appears that the replacement throttle bodies have the same defect and this is only a temporary fix. this problem could easily result in a crash or a pedestrian being struck. our car has not been repaired. the defective throttle body is still intact on the car. the car is also very slow to decelerate. *tr.Mileage was 79100 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on June 01, 2010.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . 2005 ford freestyle surges since about 20,000 miles. now has 100,000 and surging around 5 feet, mostly in and out of parking or in stop/go traffic. my car lunged aprrox. 5 feet backwards and almost hit ladyas i was pulling out of parking space at grocery store; she screamed, jumped, and yelled at me (understandable). i would have hit her if my foot was not on the brake. no dealer could find the problem from 2006 until now, 2010. ford has offered no help or recall on this "throttle body" problem. nor did they offer any help on the poor design of the double back seat that gets stuck in the up position and will not lie down. they "negotiated" a $400 cost to fix down from $1,000, even though ford has a paper on this problem. at 99,000 miles, now the dealer reports i need new throttle body assembly; transmission pan is wet; a/c compressor leaking and needs replacing. i drove my 240 dl volvo for 10 yrs/340,000 miles. i have had all of my services and oil changes. there should be no reason this car is falling apart like this. i was a court reporter for 25 years. how can ford not be responsible for replacing parts and gratuitously doing proper service to correct their poor design, especially when it involves products liability problems for ford? will they become another toyota before taking responsibility? i have never received one piece of paper warning me about the throttle body problem, which i view as quite serious; and i know the legal outcome if someone is injured or killed. this leads me to believe that ford has a weak legal advisory committee or perhaps a legal liability dept. that may desire to know about the problems before they have to defend them in court. something does not make sense to me here. very disappointed and will not buy another ford. *tr.Mileage was 99000 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on June 29, 2010.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i own a 2005 ford freestyle, bought new, and over the past 6-12 months i have begun to notice sudden accelerations when putting the vehicle into gear. the engine revs and the vehicle surges forward or backward. i have also had the engine die with no warning while the car was in gear and running. on 6/29/2010 i put the vehicle in reverse and it surged backwards, i applied the brakes strongly and the engine died. the sudden accelerations are becoming more frequent, it has happened to me 3 times in the past 7 days. i have contacted ford motor company to inquire for more information and have researched similar complaints on the internet. i found hundreds of consumer complaints detailing the exact same issue, due to a faulty throttle body assembly. i am currently in the process of having my car examined and repaired at the ford dealer. repairs are expected to cost at least 500 dollars. i am very disappointed ford has not made any attempts to warn owners of the problem and/or repair the vehicle at no cost. sudden accelerations, not under control of the driver, are obviously quite dangerous and frightening. losing engine power in conjunction with it, in traffic, can be very dangerous as well. i wanted to inform you of the problem that apparently many of us freestyle owners are having, in hopes something can be done to fix the vehicles and protect the operators and traveling public. *tr.Mileage was 58800 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Aug 16, 2009.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . we bought a new 2005 ford freestyle in october 2005. we had no problems until our 3 year warranty expired in october 2008. beginning in 2009 we began to notice that our instrument panel would lose power. all dials would go down to zero, flicker and the entire panel would be dead for a short time. it happened intermittently and we lived with it for a year before taking the vehicle back to the san leandro, ca ford dealer, paying $250 for an engine diagnostic in january 2009. the diagnostic which took all day, revealed that there was a short in a wire in the instrument panel which meant the panel would have to be replaced in its entirety ($700). not having the $700 to pay for the solution i came home to do some research. i found that per ford tsb 06-17-9 all ford dealerships were told about this defect. it was investigated by the nhtsa and because the problem did not involve the operation of the exterior functions of the vehicle, there was no recall. i would like to know why ford mc is taking $250 from its customers to diagnose a problem that it already knew about. also, if it were your vehicle, would you be satisfied in paying $700 for a replacement part that ford readily admits to having been soldered incorrectly during the manufacturing process? i can testify that there is a safety issue involved here. when driving home from yosemite np at night, along steep mountain roads, my family of 4 children, mom and dad nearly drove off the road when our entire cabin went dark because the instrument panel shut down. we had to brake hard and cars behind us and in front had to do the same in response. i could not tell how fast we were going, nor how much gas was left in the tank for a period of 10 minutes. reverse lights come on whilst driving in forward direction causing drivers to brake behind us. the investigation should be reopened because this problem is ongoing and will cause loss of life for the sake of a replacement part that was badly made. *tr.Mileage was 30000 miles.

(plus we"ll need to pay charges to have the parts shipped asap). today, my husband checked online and found that this has been an ongoing problem with ford freestyle's. this is absolutely dangerous! my car could easily have lurched out into heavy 40-45 mile per hr traffic, if i hadn't had fast reflexes! or if i had pulled out in front of the higher speed traffic i could have been hit from behind! my car has only about 37,000 miles. i've had about four incidences of electrical problems with it. first, they replaced my alternator. then my battery. then my instrument cluster panels & (in the dashboard) airconditioning panels. at least they're the things that i know they've done (because the don't tell you all the things they've fixed or replaced). i don"t know if these things are connected. also according to the internet, these parts have be hard to find. *tr.Mileage was 37000 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Aug 05, 2010.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN . for the past two years i have had trouble with my 2005 ford freestyle surging while in drive or reverse at slow speeds. again yesterday this happened while in a parking lot as i was pulling into the parking space. this is typical of when the car lurches/surges forward. however, yesterday the car also went into "fail safe engine mode". i have been complaining to my dealership about this incident since prior to the standard warranty expiring on the car. i have also filed a complaint directly with ford motor company. since the car does not 'throw any codes' when this occurs there has never been any action taken to resolve the issue although i continue to notify my dealership everytime the car is in for scheduled maintenance, repair, etc. it appears the problem is with the throttle body/throttle body control. *tr.Mileage was 73000 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Aug 13, 2010.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . for several months we had noticed that when we shifted our vehicle into gear (forward or reverse) the car would lurch forward/backward as we came off the brake. several weeks ago, my wife had the vehicle in line at my daughters elementary school driveway waiting to pick her up. as she released pressure on the brake, the vehicle unexpectedly jumped forward and she needed to slam on the brakes to stop it. the engine then went into "failsafe mode" and ran on diminished performance until she was able to get the vehicle home. upon examination, it was determined that the throttle body needed to be replaced on a car with 65,000 miles. it was the faulty throttle body that had been causing the car to unexpectedly lurch/surge forward. i am filing this complaint because it appears that it is not an isolated issue for the vehicle and it is a family vehicle which means that there are many of them sitting in school parking lots and pick up lanes. as you can imagine a vehicle that unexpectedly surges forward in an area full of children caused a great deal of concern to my wife and i. in my research there appears to be technical service bulletins issued by ford regarding this matter and although my car had been in for it 60k service just months before, there was no mention of a problem with the throttle body. the ford dealer wasted no time telling us that the part is not covered under their extended power train warranty which i had on the vehicle. quite honestly, that was not my main concern as a child could have easily been harmed by this faulty throttle body and the symptoms it produces. the dealer replaced the throttle body and cleaned the injectors and the vehicle is running better. *tr.Mileage was 66000 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 03, 2010.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . this car has an apparently well-known issue with the throttle body failing, causing: a) sudden uncontrolled acceleration from a stop, and b) sudden loss of power when traveling down the road at highway speeds. my wife experienced both problems yesterday. first, with my wife's foot on the brake, the freestyle lunged forward and almost rear-ended another car that had children loading into it, while in school carpool line. then, while making her way immediately to the ford dealership -- with my two children -- this uncontrolled lunging from a dead stop continued at intersections; and while traveling at speed, in traffic, the car would suddenly lose all power. the sudden lunge makes it likely you'll hit a pedestrian or rear-end the car in front of you; the sudden loss of power makes it likely you'll be the recipient of a rear-end collision. the repair is costing us $730. it's the throttle body, of course. and i've asked the dealership to give me back the old part, so yes, i should have that available when i get the car back. *** important *** this is a well-known issue to both ford and the odi of the nhtsa. there are hundreds of matching, publicly filed complaints documenting this chilling safety issue in this very same odi database to which i am submitting this mirror complaint. when should we expect to see some action from the odi/nhtsa and/or ford on this???????? i want my money back but i also want ford to fix this, not just on my car, but on all the other family's' cars that have this **well-known** safety defect!!!!!!!!! *tr.Mileage was 59200 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 03, 2010.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . this car has an apparently well-known issue with the throttle body failing, causing: a) sudden uncontrolled acceleration from a stop, and b) sudden loss of power when traveling down the road at highway speeds. my wife experienced both problems yesterday. first, with my wife's foot on the brake, the freestyle lunged forward and almost rear-ended another car that had children loading into it, while in school carpool line. then, while making her way immediately to the ford dealership -- with my two children -- this uncontrolled lunging from a dead stop continued at intersections; and while traveling at speed, in traffic, the car would suddenly lose all power. the sudden lunge makes it likely you'll hit a pedestrian or rear-end the car in front of you; the sudden loss of power makes it likely you'll be the recipient of a rear-end collision. the repair is costing us $730. it's the throttle body, of course. and i've asked the dealership to give me back the old part, so yes, i should have that available when i get the car back. *** important *** this is a well-known issue to both ford and the odi of the nhtsa. there are hundreds of matching, publicly filed complaints documenting this chilling safety issue in this very same odi database to which i am submitting this mirror complaint. when should we expect to see some action from the odi/nhtsa and/or ford on this???????? i want my money back but i also want ford to fix this, not just on my car, but on all the other family's' cars that have this **well-known** safety defect!!!!!!!!! *tr.Mileage was 59200 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Apr 30, 2011.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . on april 30th, 2011 i was leaving on a short weekend trip with myself and 5 kids. i had just left my driveway and was driving about 25 when a bird flew out in front of me. i proceeded to try to brake so i would not hit the bird. instead of braking, the car accelerated. the kids in the vehicle wanted to know why i sped up instead of braking. it was very scary. if there would have been a car or person in front of me, i would have hit them. thankfully there was not. i let the incident pass and we continued on. on sunday, may 1, 2011, we were driving home when my car started speeding up and then shaking. it was out of control. it was then that the check transmission light came on. i thankfully was able to pull over safely. we ended up having to find transportation for myself and 5 children and then have the car towed back to our local dealership. after the dealership checked it out, we were informed that the transmission is bad and they are asking $6000.00 to fix it. it seems that the special transmission they put in our 2005 freestyle is not a good one and they are having problems with it. it is the "special" transmission that is making it so expensive to fix. so, it seems ford knows that there is a problem but refuses to stand behind its product or customers and fix it. this is a very dangerous situation! i am so thankful no one was hurt in my situation. it could have been much worse considering i live on a busy street with a lot of children. i am glad it was not a child i was trying to stop for as i would have most definitely hit them.. *tr.Mileage was 71160 miles.

( i am absolutely positive that i did not touch the accelerator pedal, nor did the floor mat) ironically, a few days later, i read an article in our newspaper about a current investigation of about 200 ford freestyles with similar problems. i am very concerned about this potentially serious safety problem that seems to be affecting the ford freestyle. thank you for investigating this matter. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 42090 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 24, 2010.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i own a 2005 ford freestyle and about 1 year ago, when ever i would back out of my garage or pull into the garage at a slow speed, sometimes the car would lunge unexpectedly either forward or backward depending on if i was backing out or pulling into my garage. it occurred at least 3 or 4 times per week until it finally got so back that my check engine light came on. at that point, i took the car to the dealership and they charged me over $600 to replace the throttle body on the car. this did resolve the issue somewhat, but at least a couple of times a month i still experience this lunging of the car, but it is not as dramatic as it was before they replaced the throttle body. i was really worried about this issue as we have a lot of kids that like to play around our house and i was always worried i was going to run into one of them when backing out of the garage so i had to make sure i kept one foot on the break just in case. this is a very serious issue and it is something that is definitely a safety hazard to the public. also, my wife has a 2006 ford 500 and it experienced the same problems and we had to get the throttle body fixed on it as well. i spent over $1,000 within the span of a few months on the same issue in two different ford vehicles. there is definitely something wrong with the throttle body mechanism and ford needs to be held accountable for this dangerous situation they have put car owners in and they should be required to refund the cost of anyone who has already spent $600 or $700 to fix their throttle body. the ford dealer told me to keep my receipts in case this issue made the recall list. *tr.Mileage was 55500 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 26, 2011.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . for the past month or so, my 2005 ford freestyle will surge in speed, when shifted into either drive or reverse, during low idle. in all situations when the speed surge has occurred, i did not have my foot on the accelerator pedal, only on the brake. this condition is most pronounced after a cold start. the amount of time to start the engine has also increased since this problem has been first noticed. also, at highway speeds, the rpm's can fluctuate 200 to 300 rpms even while the cruise control is active, the car is being operated on a relatively flat and straight surface. this issue of rpm fluctuation has been going on for approximately 6 months or greater. this issue has been subltly getting worse over time. when i first noticed the fluxuation, it was barely noticable. now, you can feel yourself rocking back and forth slightly with the acceleration and deceleration of the vehicle during a fluctuation occurrance. the occurrances can last anywhere from 10 seconds to 30 seconds. and sometimes can be replicated again while driving along using similar road conditions. i post two issues within this complaint only because i believe they are related. should information arise to indicate a seperate issue, i shall resubmit the 2nd paragraph. *tr.Mileage was 44000 miles.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 29, 2011.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN . i experienced an uncommanded and overcompensating throttle response while backing up. at the time the air conditioner compressor was engaged and the steering wheel about one turn from full lock. i was able to control the vehicles speed with the brakes and no incident resulted, however without a timely response the outcome may have turned out differently. the "wrench light" illuminated during the occurrence but turned off after restarting the car. the throttle does serge slightly at highway speed but is barley noticeable compared to a load placed on the engine at idle. looking back several years, we also have experienced some starting problems, which i think is related. i believe there is a problem with the throttle body unit, part # 5f9z9e926b. the problem is inconsistent. i have not yet replaced the unit, only cleaned it, which is not a solution. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMDK01145G.

FORD FREESTYLE 2005 car safety problem was reported on June 07, 2011.FORD FREESTYLE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . 2005 ford freestyle-drove into parking lot to pickup friends waiting. put car in drive and car lunged forward with my foot on brake jumping several feet forward then engine stalled. restarted while in middle of parking lot to oncoming traffic, and repeated above stalled and lunged, again and again after 5th time wrench light showed on dash display -started car and was able to do a tight u and repark vehicle. wrench light remained on. left car in lot after returned from dinner 2 hours later the wrench light was out and vehicle was taken home and appointment made at local mechanicl. mechanic called with info that we needed to take to ford repair with code #'s p061b & p2106. ford presently is looking at vehicle and was told they reset the computer and we needed a tune up and as of this moment, they are having difficulty getting things back to us. vehicle is a 2005 ford freestyle with 65,000 miles on it. this is a very scary dangerous thing that happen. fortunately no cars in the lot were hit as the car lunged approximently 8-10 feet and i wasnt driving down the road. after looking on line last night i see the nhtsa is investigating after approximate 500 reports of varying years of this vehicle reported these same details. after reading them, i see my situation fits this to a tee! some have replaced the throttle body for a cost of $1000 only to have it happen again after this repair. several months ago we thought we may have gotten bad gasoline as the car was acting as though it was surging back and forth and would stall after starting and running rough for a few minutes. put additive in the gas tank.i think ford needs to investigate this is very dangerous, i no longer trust that i will be safe driving my car and i would not want any of my loved ones driving this vehicle and having this happen as they were in traffic, surely would be an accident and hopefully no ones lives will be taken because of this issue. i love my ford freestyle and never had complaint til now. *tr.Mileage was 63000 miles.
