2006 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


I bought a 2006 Ford Escape brand new which is now paid off and I now have spent an additional almost 1/3 of the purchase price on repairs.
At first, it ran great other than loud road noise when driving down the highway (like air was leaking in somewhere)
At 38,000 miles (yep, just off warranty) the #6 piston fell apart in the engine, At around 50,000 miles, the Throttle Body needed to be replaced due to the gas pedal was sticking. Now at 68,000 miles, just this morning, I lost my brakes after dropping my kids at school.
One brake line busted and two more are leaking.
On the interior, the tubing seal around the passenger side door is falling off and the truck is starting to rust.
