2003 Ford Escape XLT Popular 2 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
The first week I had to return it
because the radiator had a hole in it
from the factory. Nine months later,
at 12,000 miles, a wheel bearing went
out. A little later, someone ran a
redlight and wrecked the vehicle. It
took 3 weeks to fix because Ford was
VERY slow in getting replacement parts
to the body shop. This vehicle has
cost me a huge loss of time because of
problems Ford could easily solve.
Based on my experience with this
vehicle, I won't buy another Ford.
It looks very attractive and runs
Better comfort for long trips. Paint
that doesn't chip so easily. Use
better quality parts from the factory.
