I'm Escaping Ford to get a Yugo
By Bill on

Vehicle

2003 Ford Escape XLS Value Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Ford, don't know what you're doing, but I know you're not building a tough, reliable vehicle. Within 35k miles: trans. shot, paint shot, brakes shot. Stalls periodically. The geniuses at dealer, at the ones who could form complete sentences, can't find anything wrong. Will never, ever, so much as drive by another Ford dealership. I'm done with them.

Favorite Features

Someone will end up making a few bucks when this piece of junk is sold for scrap metal

Suggested Improvements

My suggestion: Ford, move to either Eastern Europe or some third world country. They don't recognize crap so readily as those of us in industrialized countries do. You may have a few years left there.
