2008 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I love my new '08 Escape. It looks great, itís fast and spacious. Gas mileage in the city has been about 19.8-21mpg. Excellent smooth ride on long trips. We have done 3500 miles in it. One problem - the rear makes a "rocking" noise when the vehicle is just about to stop. The dealer has it for a 2nd time and cant work out what it is? The rear brakes grind when you press the pedal when in P or N. Has anyone else had this problem? Very annoying! I may have a lemon? They should have put 4 disc brakes instead. Overall I love the SUV but this problem is driving me crazy. To date they have replaced the mirror motor on the drivers side, replaced a broken seal on the rear brakes and the left axle!

Favorite Features

Interior. Exterior styling. Great to drive on the freeway, very smooth and enjoyable.

Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the drum brakes!
