problem #1

Dec 012005

Freestar 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,000 miles
Excessive front brake noise. Sometimes accompanied by a grinding noise. I can not begin to describe how loud this is. It is not even near the level of normal brake squealing. Dealership reports that nothing is wrong with the braking system. There has got to be some type of defect in the workmanship of this braking system and the manufacturer should be held accountable. This has been on going since purchase of vehicle.
