Update... After owning this SUV for 5 years, I would buy another in a minute! I have the oil and other services done as recommended in the manual, and have had NO service issues. Got 67,000 miles out of the OEM General tires, and other than replacing the battery at 36 months, and both taillights after my wife and I "customized" them by backing into things we shouldn't have, I haven't had to spend a dime (now 75,000 miles) on repairs. Brakes still work fine (we do a lot of highway driving, so the brakes don't get too much of a workout). Interior for the most part is still fine (but the radio won't play .mp3's any more - just regular .cda audio discs). Transmission, cruise control, lights, windows, locks, A/C, heater all still work fine. But the best part is: this thing is a MISSLE! I regularly use an additive with every fill-up (fuel injector cleaner or octane booster from the dollar store) and good regular-grade gas from the corner gas station. If you slowly roll into the gas pedal when leaving a dead stop, the 2.3L 4-cylinder engine will reward me with ludicrous accelleration every time! In addition to the visits from Our Blessed Mother Of Accelleration, it gets a steady 25 MPG (25 city, 25 hwy @ 70 MPH) if not driven in Rally mode. So - the key to happiness with a Ford Escape? Do the recommended maintenance, when recommended, and ignore what Ford says in the owner's manual, and use Gumout or some other fuel system cleaner regularly.Report it
