2008 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


This vehicle ran great until just over 60 k miles, only work needed done was bad transmission cooler (recall) but the transmission in this vehicle number cd4e which is in several ford makes and models is absolute garbage, cheap, poor engineering design and totally unreliable according to many transmission specialists. The shops are full of ford escapes with bad transmissions! they barely make it through warrenty. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY on FORD! I have bought this almost brand new, have had it one year and ten months and the transmision is garbage. You are worthless to them after 60k, sorry charlie, too bad, cant help you, Sucker! I even took it in while in warrenty 58k and complained. tough.

Best Features

looks, ride .

Worst Features

Terrible seats, cloth is cheap eco garbage, you will hate. How about building a real SUV? Something that truly is dependable and not junk? How about 100k warenty? Better customer service? After reading good reviews for almost 2 years, I got suckered and regret it terribly. Do not buy a ford
