Disappointed again
By Cheryl on


2005 Ford Escape Limited Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Replaced my 2002 Escape at 38K mi. due to too many major repairs (torque converter, manifold, bearings, struts - to name a few) with a 2005 Escape with an extended warranty. After 3 months there was a leak in the gas line. At 60K mi. the torque converter and sunroof motor went up. Now at 65K mi. the ABS sensor went up ($700+ to repair). Sometimes I hear a crunching sound in the rear when I make turns or go over bumps. I have only done street/highway driving. All maintenance has been done on schedule by a Ford dealer. I will not buy another Ford.

Best Features

Privacy glass, storage compartment in rear, overall appearance.

Worst Features

Redesign the back seat headrests as they cause blind spots. A bigger fuel tank.
