Engine just stalled after 8,000 miles

2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


I have a 2002 XLT Ford Escape with 8,000
miles. Today I was driving home from work
and the engine, and battery lights came on.
The power steering went out and the brakes
barely worked. When I finally got the car to
stop it died. Luckily I put it into park and it re-
started. I am scared to think of what would
have happened only 5 minutes earlier when
I was on the freeway. I read a lot of bad
reviews about the Escape and it's stalling
problems. I thought maybe it wouldn't
happen to me, but it did. I am afraid to take it
into the shop and have to hear them tell me
that nothing is wrong. This is a real shame.
