LOCATION OF SPARE TIRE AND TOOLS
Your vehicle is equipped with a temporary spare tire,
which is smaller than a regular tire, and designed for
emergency use only. The jack, spare tire, jack handle, and
lug nut wrench are under the carpeted floor panel in the
rear of the vehicle. If the 3rd row seat is stowed in the floor,
you will need to unstow it to access the spare tire and jack.
FUSES
If your electrical components aren't working properly, a
fuse may have blown. Please consult your Owner's Guide.

FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH
This device stops the electric fuel pump from sending fuel
to the engine when your vehicle has had a substantial jolt.
After an accident, if the engine cranks but does not start,
this switch may have been activated. The fuel pump shutoff switch is located in the front passenger footwell area
in the right upper corner. For switch reset instructions,
please consult your Owner's Guide.
UNLEADED FUEL RECOMMENDATIONS
For optimum performance, use “Regular” unleaded fuel
with a pump (R+M)/2 octane rating of at least 87. We do
not recommend the use of gasolines labeled “Regular”
with octane ratings of 86 or lower that are sold in high
altitude areas.

Safe operation of your Freestyle requires that your tires be
properly inflated. The Ford recommended inflation
pressure is found on the Tire Label or the Certification Label
located near the front door latch on the driver's side. At least
once a month and before long trips, inspect each tire and
check the air pressure with a tire gauge. Don't forget the
spare. Air pressure should be checked when the tires are
cold. Inflate all tires to the inflation pressure recommended
by Ford Motor Company.

UNDERSTANDING THE CVT
The Continuously Variable Transaxle (CVT) is a fully
automatic transmission that electronically monitors
vehicle system inputs/outputs and driver demands to
select the desired drive ratio. Unlike traditional automatic
transmissions, the CVT continually adjusts the optimum
overall drive ratio between engine and drive wheels for
all operating conditions. As traditional automatic
transmissions shift up or down in gears, the shifting in
gear ratios is noticeable by increasing and decreasing
engine RPM, which causes a slight energy loss as the
gears change. The gear changes can be felt by the driver.
With the CVT, there is no energy transfer loss from
shifting because there is no gear shifting up or down.
Accelerating up to vehicle operating speed is smooth and
continuous, uninterrupted by gear shifting. The same
holds true for coasting down to idle: smooth and
continuous. Unlike traditional automatic transmissions,
the CVT offers more responsive performance and
increased fuel economy. The use of fluids other than
the recommended fluid could seriously damage
internal transmission components. Please consult your
Owner’s Guide.
REAR WINDOW BUFFETING
When one or both of your rear windows are fully open,
you may experience a wind throb or buffeting noise.
This is common among all vehicles and can be eliminated
simply by lowering a front window two to three inches.
