Ford Freestyle Problems

Brakes -- Verified

If the rear brakes wear out abnormally fast, this can be caused by defective rear brake pads. The rear wheels may also appear to become excessively dusty. They should be replaced with revised brake pads, and all wheel drive (AWD) vehicles should replace front brake pads as well.

Engine -- Verified

A defective electronic throttle body (ETB) can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate and could have limited to no throttle response. Our technicians tall us that replacing the electronic throttle body will commonly correct this concern.

Drive Train -- Verified

Binding of the shifter slider can make the transmission shifter difficult to move. Replacing the bezel should fix this problem.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

Electrolysis can cause repeated failures of the heater core and radiator. The diagnosing technician should check for voltage present in the coolant, with the battery disconnected, because electrical current in the coolant causes electrolysis. Corroded or deteriorated parts should be replaced, and the coolant should be flushed. Ground straps can be added to help prevent future corrosion of components.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

Fitment and abrasion of wheel covers to the wheels can cause the wheel covers to make a ticking and / or clicking noise. Lubricating the back side of the wheel covers where they mate to the wheels should correct this problem.

The A/C in my 2005 Freestyle cools great when the car is moving. When it's just idling it does not cool. The mechanic thinks it's clogged fan. Has anyone else had a similar problem?

We bought our '07 used with 87k on it and couldn't be happier. We're a busy family with two kids and a dog and the versatility this car provides is amazing! Haven't had any problems other than the regular services. I would recommend this car to anyone.

I do like this car. not as well appointed as other suv's in its class but it's been reliable and fun. good throttle response, quick smooth acceleration. maybe a little loud at freeway speed, but overall nice ride. better fuel mileage would also be a plus.

neat car .want to know if there is an advantage to put on all
whele drive shocks on front drive 2007 frstyle?.

I love my Freestyle especially how it handles in the snow. I purchased it new in 2005 and have had minimal problems with it. We even hit a deer last year and the car was ok other then cosmetic issues. Love this car just wish it was better on gas.

Pverall Great car. DVD player view screen does not stay up, had issue with broken back seat laying down, currently having an issue with random lurching when starting from a stop we cant seem to find out why. drives great. CRT great. repair maintenance costs low
