2009 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Bought the 2009 Escape as a replacement for our 1998 F150 that was super reliable. The Escape is comfortable and the V6 is powerful and economical delivering about 22 in mixed driving. However quality leaves much to be desired, the transmission started leaking right before the warranty expired and was fixed under warranty. The throttle body failed at 44000, costing 400 to replace I might mention out of all the cars I have owned I have never ever had a throttle body fail! I really question our decision to buy the Escape and curious as to what other problems will surface, I will be hesitant to buy another Ford.

Favorite Features

Sync, 4WD. It has all the bells and whistles!

Suggested Improvements

Quality, better fuel system and better transmission!
