2005fordfreestyle. 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

1. I Noticed That There Was A Knocking Noise Of Sorts Coming From My Vehicle When I Would Put It In Drive. At First, It Would Only Do It In Drive. Now, It Makes The Noise In Park And In Every Gear Except Reverse. It Is Extremely Loud. 2. After Taking The Vehicle To Three Different Places, It Has Been Determined That The Input Shaft And Bearing Needs To Be Replaced In My Transmission. Per The ford Dealership, This Will Run Roughly Around $2,200.00! 3. I Am Currently Waiting To Get An Appointment To Get My Car Repaired. Have Called 2 Separate ford Dealerships And One Of Them Told Us To Call Back In A Week When His Transmission Guy Would Be In, The Other Told Us To Call Back When They Open Today. *tr

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

On The fordfreestyle There Is An Inherent Problem With Transmission. When Trying To Pass,go Up Hill, Or Just As Temperature Rises In Transmission. The Transmission Will Go Into Traction Control Setting. You Will Loose Speed power And Rpm Will Go Up And Red Line. This Is Very Dangerous If You Are Trying To Pass On Two Lane Road. I Have Been Almost Ran Over On The Freeway When This Occurs. ford Will Not Acknowledge The Problem. I Checked On Edmonds Dot Com And There Are Thousands Of Complaints With This Problem. The People Are Told They Must Buy A New Transmission. For Between $5000-$7000 Dollars. I Have Spent 2000 Already And Still Not Fixed Problem. Mine Failed At 74,800 Miles , But I Was Out Of Town In The Boom Docks And By The Time I Got Back I Was Over Mileage, They Would Not Honor The Warranty. I Have Over A 120,000 Miles Now And They Can Not Fix It, I Live In Nebraska Where The Problem Does Not Occur Under 40 Degrees Outside. I Started Seeing A Wrench Appear On The Console But The Dealer Could Not Find Any Computer Problem. So They Ignored It A Glitch In The System. Thanks Scott Manley This Problem Can And Will Cause A Death. *tr

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

Have Been Experiencing The Awd Malfunction Message And Traction Control Light Coming On. Had It In To Be Looked At. Dealer Replaced The Pump Pressure Sensor. The Problem Went Away For A Few Months But Has Returned. Dealer Again Replaced The Pump Pressure Sensor. My Wife Got 5 Minutes From The Dealer And The Messages Reappeared. Dealer Now Says The Rear Differential Oil Pump Needs To Be Replaced. I Just Spent 2 Hours Reading From Other Freesytle Owners Who Have Been Through The Same Thing. ford Doesn’t Specify That The Rear Differential Oil Should Be Changed At Any Certain Mileage, But From What I Have Read This Is What Causes The Pump To Fail. Furthermore, When This Pump Goes Bad It Causes The Computer To Mess Up Preventing The Alternator From Re-charging. My Wife Barely Made It To Work Before The Care Shut Down. If It Would Have Happened On The Interstate During Rush Hour I’d Be Typing This From The Hospital. Please Look Into This As I”m No The Only freestyle Owner To Have The Same Problems.

After A Few Moments I Restarted- Car Again Surged While In Reverse And Drove It To The Dealership. Awaiting Response Of The Problem.

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 2005freestyle 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

At Random Times When The Car Is Idling Or At Low Speeds With No Contact With The Gas Pedal, The Engine Surges. This Occurs In Forward Or Reverse, With Or Without The Brake Being Applied. At Times, The Surging Is Severe And Requires A Lot Of Pressure On The Brake To Hold The Car In Place. Last Year, It Seemed To Occur More Often With The Ac On. The Compressor Died, So We Had It Replaced, But That Did Not Fix The Issue. We Have Not Crashed Into Anything But Have Come Very Close.

Stopped After Driving A Long Distance (6 Hours) On A Major Highway To Purchase A Cup Of Coffee And After Pulling Into The Parking Spot My Car Lunged Forward While Stopped. My Foot Was Directly On The Brake And I Pushed Even Harder On The Brake And My Daughter Checked My Foot Location As Well. I Was Firmly On The Brake And No Where Near The Gas Pedal And I Shifted Into Neutral And Pushed Harder On The Brake And The Car Stopped. Probably Would Have Jumped The Curb Had I Not Been Able To Stop It. In The Shop At My ford Dealer Now And They Are Telling Me That I Need The Throttle Body Replaced. No Money From ford Is Available For This Nor From My Extended Warrently And Now I Must Make A Decision Whether To Take My Car Back Without Doing The Repair That I Cannot Affort To Do Now. I Believe This Should Be A Covered Safety Expense As The Price Is Over 500.00+ And I Am Paying For Another Repair That Was Done While Under Warrently For The Shift Issue That Needed A New Shifter Bezel. This Was Done At 32,000 Miles And Had Never Been Totally Fixed But Now Needs To Be Replaced Once Again At 300.00 Estimated Cost.

I Own A 2005fordfreestyle With 74k Miles. A Few Months Ago I Noticed That While Shifting From P To D Or R With The Foot On Brake Pedal The Car Would Lunge Forward/backward With Enough Force That It Would Move A Foot Or Two. This Has Happened A Few Times But Intermittently. The Last Time The Wrench Light Also Came On But Disappeared After I Restated The Car. The Problem Started About 6 Months Ago With 65k. Luckily All Times I Either Caught The Lunging On Time And Increased The Brake Pedal Pressure Or I Was Lucky That No Car Was In Front/back. One Time My Friend Saw The Lunging While Waiting For Me To Finish Parking And Was Very Concerned About The Possibility Of Me Hitting Someone Accidentally. I Haven’t Taken It To The Mechanic Yet Thinking That It’s Just An Electronic Mishap That Would Disappear Upon Restarting The Car, But I Just Found Out That Many freestyle Owners Are Having Similar Problems! *tr

I Own A 2005fordfreestyle Sel With Just Over 77,000 Miles. I Have Had Numerous Problems With My Vehicle Lunging At Low Speeds (driving Forward And Reverse) And One Time Where It Lunged, Stalled And Entered Into Safe Mode While Backing Up. The Air Conditioning Was On During The Incidents. I Use The Brakes To Stop It From Lunging But That Is Because I Expect It To Happen. To Someone Who Is Unaware Of The Problem Might Not React The Same As I Do. It Is Quite Possible That Had I Not Been Aware Of The Problem And Reacted Properly That I
Could Of Hit A Pedestrian Or Another Vehicle. To Get My Vehicle Out Of Safe Mode I Cycled My Key A Couple Of Times With The Last Time Actually Taking The Key Out Of The Ignition And The Vehicle Returned To Normal Driving. *tr

When Parking The Vehicle Or Reversing Out Of A Parking Spot The Engine Will “rev” And The Vehicle Will Lunge Forward As If I Had Pushed The Accelerator But My Foot Was Applying Pressure To The Brake. This Has Occurred Since I Bought The Vehicle In 2005 At Approximately 11,000 Miles But The Latest Incident Happened Yesterday, July 4, 2011. Up Until Recently I Could Not Reproduce It On A Regular Basis So I Did Not Take It To The Dealership. After Reading An Article On Reuters Website That This Is Being Investigated By Nhtsa I Decided To Report It Here. As The Article States, It Appears More Often When I Have The Air Conditioning On High. I Spoke To The Service Department At The ford Dealership In Flat Rock Michigan And They Said They Were Unaware Of This Problem And That There Is Probably Nothing They Can Do To Correct It. To Date, This Has Caused No Injuries Or Accidents But It Is Only Because I Take Extra Precautions (e.g. Turn Off The Air Conditioning Or Be Prepared To Apply Extra Pressure To The Brake When Parking) To Ensure The Car Does Not Lunge Forward And Hit Anything. *kb

Sudden Acceleration In Vehicle: After Driving 200 Miles I Was Pulling Into A Parking Space When I Had A Sudden Acceleration In The Vehicle. I Had My Foot Firmly On The Brake With No Contact On The Accelerator. The Turn Was A 180 Degree Turn Into The Parking Space. (90 Into Driveway Then Continuous 90 Degree Turn Into Space.) Had To Increase Angle Of Turn To Avoid Hitting Parked Car. Immediately After The Acceleration The Vehicle Stalled. There Was No Difficulty Restarting The Vehicle. The Radio Was Off, Air Conditioning On (approximately 90 Degrees Outside, Sunny High Humidity.) Three Adult Passengers In Vehicle At Time. Speed Approximately 10 Miles An Hour. First Time I Noticed This In The Vehicle. Three Hours Later As I Was Decelerating While Approaching A Light I Also Had A Sudden Surge Lasted Maybe Two Seconds. Had Foot On Brake At The Time. Was Able To Continue Slowing Despite Surge In Engine And Attempts By Car To Increase Speed. Car Did Not Stall This Time. Speed About 25 Mph. Have Driven About 300 Miles Since And Have Not Experienced The Problem. Vehicle Front Wheel Drive With Cvt Transmission. *kb

This Is The Second Time I Had To Tow This Car To The Dealership Due To Transmission Issues. I Have Already Spent $6,000.00 On The Transmission And Then It Lunges While Backing Up And I Have To Take It In To The Dealership Again. It Is Very Scary To Drive This Car When It Does This. They Have The Nerve To Tell Me It Is The Air Filter!!!!! How Can The Air Filter Cause The Wrench Light And Engine Safe Mode To Come On!!! They Know That It Is The Transmission And They Don’t Want To Fix It So They Are Giving Me The Run Around. There Is No Way I Should Have To Replace The Transmission Twice On A 2005 Vehicle. I Am Scared To Death To Drive It Cause I Never Know When It Will Leave Me Stranded Or Just Lunged Into Something Or Someone. Please Investigate This Before Someone Gets Hurt. *tr
