Two weeks ago my wife bought an 2010 Escape with 39000 miles. The sensor on the throttle body went bad & left my wife setting along the road. The guy at the Ford garage said he had replaced five of them in the last two weeks & there probably won't be a recall. None of the Escapes had over 44,000 miles on them. Lucky she bought it from a local car lot & he took care of it.
gas mileage, small but big enough,
lots of power, love the sinc, bright light inside when you unlock it
Bought my 2010 Escape brand new over 3 years ago, mostly garage kept and @ 45,000 miles had to replace the battery, @ 50,000 miles for $500.00,a throttle body,both with no warranty, and now @ 51,000 there is a transmission fluid leak on my slab.
The 2004 Escape was a better car for me, I drove it 5 years with hardly no problems at all.
Ford needs to "improve" their product, not the other way around.
My husband company bought 8 of these cars brand new. 2 years later the company sells the cars to the employees. now that we own one. sadly to know that the car is olny 2 years old .
5 out of the 8 cars had this same problem. costing us $465.00 a pop.
I totally agree this needs to be a RECALL!!!!!
