I bought my 2011 Ford Escape V6 AWD Limited Edition may 2012.
I did great until the mileage hit 48000.
While on my way to work one morning the transmission went out and left me sitting in the middle of the 4-lane with no gears.
I finally was able to get in the low and get a wide spot to get off the road.
We took it to he ford dealership and left it for 4 days only to be told that their is nothing wrong with it.
This was 3 weeks ago.
The transmission is still slipping horrible and this afternoon my RPM's went to 5000 before it shifted gears.
It is still under my powertrain warranty but they won't fix it.
Ford needs to do something it is not safe to drive this way.
