I agree that Ford should take that defective vehicle back.
I certainly wouldn't drive it anymore, I value my and others lives.
Also I wouldn't take a similar vehicle as a loaner or in trade, since I
believe you said you experienced this problem with other Freestars.
From your experiences it appears Ford has a huge problem with this
vehicle and have yet to come up with a fix. I've experienced this run
around with less serious problems.
Why not go to the media with your problem, if Ford won't take it back.
Tell Ford before you do what you intend.
Be clear, firm, and document clearly all communications with Ford.
Another option that would fix your problem quickly with the least hassle
would be to just trade the dam unsafe piece of junk on a Chrysler or

Have you contacted a lawyer who specializes in Lemon Law cases in your
state? Several years ago we had issues with a vehicle and the local
general practice attorney in our town gave us horrible advice. Then we
found a specialist who got us a 100% buy back on the vehicle plus his
costs and it was a contingency deal. If he didn't get the company to
pay, we were off the hook for any legal fees.
Try google using "MyState lemon law attorney" to get started.
Since you seem to have missed the most relevant fact about the OP,
I'll type slowly so you understand - H E I S I N C A N A D A.
(Clue: Rogers is the big cable company up there. And you know it
has to be in Canada when the first homepage you hit offers your choice
of English or French...)
They don't have the normal USA'n style laws up there, they have a
whole different set, much closer to the UK model.
And while you'd think that a "Lemon Law" for a vehicle the
manufacturer simply can't fix would make sense, and get implemented in
every civilized country, they haven't done it. They have a binding
arbitration system, and that throws a dozen Jokers in the deck.
An arbitrator's decisions can go either way, sometimes regardless of
the facts or common sense.
