I've had my Escape for about 3 years now and have loved it up until this point.
As I was driving home last week my O/D light began flashing.
I took the car to my mechanic and was told I needed a new transmission.
I only have 51,000 miles on my car.
Other than that, it does have some loud road noise- especially at around 45-50 mph.
Other than that, the car has treated me well, too bad I have to get rid of it.
