I brought my 2005 Ford Freestyle in for a routine oil change. The oil tech mentioned on the receipt that the crossmember was rusted out.
I dont put very much weight in oil techs’ technical ability but that’s a visual thing and he has no benefit to profit as his company doesn’t do the job… After researching I realized Ford has a huge rust problem. And it looks like they recalled the FreesSTAR for this issue.
Otherwise my car runs still runs great.Its got 136,000 miles. What should I do? Bring it to a regular tech or body shop? Im afraid Im going to get swindled. The cost of the jobs like this I’ve heard from $2200-$4400 from online car owners.
