The contact owns a 2006 Ford Freestyle. The contact was attempting to reverse when the vehicle abnormally accelerated with the illumination of the wrench warning light. The contact shut off the vehicle and when restarting, the failure recurred before stalling yet the warning light was no longer illuminated. The vehicle was restarted again and the vehicle stalled but then independently restarted. The dealer made repairs to the computer and the fuel injection system was cleaned. The failure recurred. The wrench warning light was re-illuminated and the vehicle independently decelerated before stalling. The vehicle was taken to a local repair facility where the mechanic advised that he was unable to duplicate the failure but advised that the throttle body was defective. The contact noticed that the failure would occur when the air conditioner was on activated on high or medium high. Additionally, the air conditioning compressor had also failed. The manufacturer offered no assistance. The failure mileage was approximately 24,000 and the current mileage was 67,001.

Freestyle 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45 miles
Bought a 2006 Freestyle less than 24 hours ago. Noticed the A/C not working and the acceleration not working and lots of smoke. Pulled over off the highway and then the car broke down approximately 18 hours after the deal was done with 45 miles on the car.
