2003 Ford Escape XLT Popular Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I acquired this vehicle with the idea of great quality. Big Mistake! 1 week after purchasing it, the engine light came on, the fuel door open light came on, the battery light came on, etc... Took it into dealership where I was told that the lights were on from a short in the wiring. 1 week later while slowing down to make a turn during rush hour traffic, the car completely shuts off. This happened about 15 times with the dealership telling me they could find anything wrong with it. Come to find out there was a recall. The trans. started slipping not more than 3 months after that. Brand new rear tire was bald in less than 3 months from rubbing. Smelled burning oil always. radio buttons broke

Favorite Features

Gas mileage is pretty awesome.

Suggested Improvements

Not sure if the workers were just asleep during the making of MY car, but the quality, durability, and comfort needs a lot of improvement.
