The vehicle will jerk and buck when backing up or going forward and then go into failsafe mode and shut off. This is very dangerous but yet there is no recall on this particular problem. It also accelerates by itself when in park for a long period of time and you can barely stop it. Almost hit someone because of it. Nothing has been done as of yet spoke with Ford and they said there is no recall so they're not fixing it.

The contact owns a 2005 Ford Freestyle. While driving various speeds or approaching a complete stop, the vehicle excessively vibrates. It is difficult for the contact to maintain control of the vehicle. The dealer stated that the motor mount bracket and the stabilizer were defective. They further stated that the part (part# 5F926F055ca) to remedy the failure would be unavailable until August of 2008. The failure and current mileages were 45,000.

My 2005 Ford Freestyle sel turned off when I turned a corner. I was turning a corner from one road to another and my Freestyle shut off and all of the gauge and warning lights came on. I pulled over, shut it off and turned it on again with no problem.

I have been driving at various speeds when it happens. The vehicle just dies for no reason and without warning. This has happened at least 3 times. I have had it in the shop but they could not find anything wrong. I am afraid I or my son could be trying to pass another auto and this one die again and could cause a head on collision.
