2004 Ford Escape XLS 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


My engine threw a rod at 34,311 miles and punched 2 holes in the block. Ford replaced it under warranty. If you buy a Ford make sure you are aware of their Road Side Assistance program and you also may want to get an extended warranty. They don't give you a replacement car or a rental without an extended warranty. I was without my vehicle for 2 weeks.

Best Features

Brand new engine.

Worst Features

I have heard of a few Escapes with engine trouble. This has been the only problem I have encountered, but I would still say ... buyer beware. Ford needs better warranty programs and could improve their customer service as well.
