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.

2007 Ford Freestyle Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 142008

Freestyle 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,000 miles


Vehicle is a 2007 Ford Freestyle ltd with continuously variable transmission. The haldex traction control coupler between the front and rear wheels seems to work normally when on slick pavement and the traction control 'active' light on the dash flashes to show it is working. However, the same light comes on on dry pavement and will not go off until the engine is turned off. It may come on each driving cycle, or only occasionally or even while parked and idling. The dealer has replaced the pump in the haldex coupler but the erroneous tc light still comes on at random times. Others on the Ford forums have reported the same symptoms and and obdii code of P1889 (oil pump failure.)
