STEP AWAY FROM THE VEHICLE!
By Marty on
2002 Ford Escape XLS Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
My Ford Escape is self-destructing as I write - the CD player won't eject without help from my license, the rear wiper doesn't work, the right inside door panel is coming off, the shift indicator light works once in a while, the alternator had to be replaced at 24K, the right rear door doesn't shut without being slammed (this was supposedly fixed by the dealer), the doors are hard to open - feels like the door handle is going to break off (probably will soon), the left running board is separating from itself and it's difficult to shift out of park when parked on a hill. The defrost only works with the visors down, the a/c is inadequate. Could go on and on, but am out of room.
Hmmm .... well, can't think of any!
Should have listened to my son - FORD stands for "found on road dead", or "fix or repair daily."
