Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The Freestar was introduced in 2004, but it was essentially just a rebranded Windstar. While there was a redesign of the interior and exterior, the Freestar still inherited some of the design flaws of its predecessor.

HOSE WAS BROKEN, COULDN'T GET A REPLACEMENT HOSE ANYWHERE. I WAS TOLD BY FORD DEALER HAD TO HAVE ONE MADE. PLUS CONDENSER WAS PLUGGED, HAD TO BE REPLACED AT MY COST. FORD SHOULD HAVE COVERED THIS BECAUSE YOU SELL A VEHICLE THAT YOU CAN'T GET REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR.

THANK YOU

Freestar SE 3.9L

Second time since owning this van in only 2 years that AC has stopped working. Paid $800 last summer to have AC fixed which worked until this summer when we actually needing AC. It suddenly stopped working today when I had my 3 small children loaded into the van. I felt bad for them being in a hot van with no way to let any air in at all in the back.
