All Ford Freestyle Owners
Dead power steering pump
Bad throttle body
bad egr valve
From what I have been reading the throttle body issue is prevalent in these cars. Because of this I phoned the NHTSA to file a complaint about the safety problem. I have been scared more then once when my car lurched forward or backwards.
I urge everyone who has had this issue to contact them and file a complaint. The women I spoke to said they only had seven filed to date. I know I read at least 20 on various forums online. Ford needs to fix this problem and we need to have an investigation to make them do it.
I'm so torn up about this since up until now we have loved this car. In the coming years it won't be viable for us to be putting thousands of dollars into it. I also understand that the transmission is another item of worry.
Phone the NHTSA @ 1-888-327-4236, I phoned around 6pm and only had to wait 15 min for someone to talk to. You can also file a complaint online at www.nhtsa.gov. Let's not forget that the governments job is to work for the people, call asap.
