2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


My 2006 Ford Hybrid with only 30,543 miles needs major repairs.
First it was new tires, replacing those the car came with.
So, at 30,000 miles I got 4 new tires.
The car now has a bad rear end differential which can not be repaired but must be replaced to the tune of at least $2k, maybe more they say.
No warranty, very low miles but 5 years old.
I was told by the dealership that Ford and the dealership don't have the same level of customer service/loyalty because of the economy!

We have probably purchased our last Fords.
I may trade in but definitely not for another Ford!

everyone is green conscientiously minded these day's. does everyone forget that a quality used auto parts is a fraction of the cost of a new part from the dealer? you can get practicaly any part you need. go green and buy used.
