Took it in for repair, shop has had it for 6 weeks and still can't repair it, I don't have alot of money to replace it, I can only afford to rebuild it but because of the VCR it seems impossible. Also it accelerates out of no where on it's own, very scar and dangerous. Because I bought it from a used car lot DI I have any rights?

Have a 2007 ford freestyle. A year ago it started accelerating on its own. Almost hit someone twice and almost hit a car once. One month ago transmission started slipping took it to repair shop. Transmission is gone 5800.00 to repair. I just paid it off and it only has 83000 miles on it. We can't afford to buy another car and we were just going to be car payment free. I have never ever had a car that did this. Now it is sitting in the shop as junk. I just out brand new tires on it and new brakes. I am furious. This obviously is a problem with this car. I will NEVER buy a ford again. Is there anything I cAn do

Ford Freestyles mine was a 2006. I so not recommend these cars. I have a Ford expedition with well of 200,000 miles an is a 2003. My ford freestyle had 197,000. The shop said transmission was bad $5,800. The motor an from suspension was also about to go. I had we'll over $10,000 in repairs. Needless to say I traded it in as it was an was able to get $2,500 for it.

I have a 2005 Freestyle also. 96,000 miles. My car had no warning signs just while driving the transmission light came on, car lunged and totally stopped while in traffic.

I have a 2007 Freestyle and had the transmission fail 3 hours from home and in the freezing cold. It went at 64,000 miles. It was still covered under the extended warranty. That I purchased separate. It was only 20,000 after I purchased it from a certified ford dealer. It is messed up again.......

I submitted my problem in March of 2013 at that time my transmission in my 2005 Ford Freestyle had failed - same issues as posted - whinging noise, wrench light on, car loosing power while driving then transmission completely fails. No one can fix, I waited 2 months was without a car, to pay $7000 to get a new one from Ford installed. For the past year I have had this problem starting up with the new transmission wrench light coming on loosing power - brought back to Ford they could not find a problem. I now have the whining and have appointment to bring back to Ford. My car was paid for in 2013 I had to take out a loan against it to get the new trans - I am still paying for it and got charged $300 when I brought my car in the last time the wrench light came on because Ford said that they could not find a problem.

My 2005 Ford Freestyle issues stared with a motor mount needing replaced. Paid for that then my car started to idle high and it would try to go on it's own when put in gear. There was a recall to have the throttle body cleaned or repaired and mine only qualified for a repair(that's what the dealership said) A few months later my car started losing power at random and just kind of shut down. Again with the throttle body. I had to buy a used one(and it took my weeks to find one) for $400. And while my car has a lot of miles, it's always been well taken care of. Now my transmission is going out.
