2011 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)

Review

I originally had concerns with build quality, but got those issues resolved at the dealership. However, I am experiencing the infamous "hoot" noise in the transmission, which, apparently, hundreds of 4WD owners are experiencing. At first Ford said it was not a problem, and simply inherent in the transmittion. Then they said a temporary fix would be to replace the chain in the transaxle. Now, they say a permanent fix will be available in the second quarter of 2011. - What a crock! I have owned seven vehicles with either AWD or 4WD and none have had a similar issue. I am very disappointed with Ford, and this may be my last Ford, even though I have owned at least 10 over the years.

Favorite Features

Handles nicely, and is rather comfortable for the size.

Suggested Improvements

Hard to read some areas of the dash over the steering wheel. Mileage is really awful! Not as advertised. Best ever, on all highway driving, has been 23 MPG. Normal is about 18 in the city.
