Recall Alert: 2004-05 Ford Freestar, Mercury Monterey

2004 Ford Freestar

Ford is recalling 205,896 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey minivans from the 2004-05 model years because the torque converter output shaft may fail, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If the shaft fails, the driver may experience a sudden loss of motive power without warning, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford or Lincoln dealers will replace the torque converter for free. The recall is expected to begin in the spring because the parts needed for repairs will not be available until then. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.

I feel so disappointed in Mercury,I would not have known about the recall if my son who works for Lexus had not called me.


I have a Freestar 2004 in Mexico. What about other countries replace?
