Beware of Ford Escape, Beware!
By ahwilson on


2008 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased a 2008 Ford Escape in August 2007, and about 8 days after purchase the accelerator cable line broke.
The dealer chose to repair the care, even though I expressed concern and worry about keeping the car.
I immediately notified National Highway Safety.
The dealer could not explain the malfunction.

Cable line broke again at about 15,000 miles.
This car has multiple problems.
Windows freeze, and won't roll up..even in summer.
The fabric seats stains very quickly and car offered cleaning of seats and carpet for additional.
Every time I presented it for cleaning, the dealer never had appropriate staff.
This add-on cost is a rip off.
The keys to car wear down.
I hate it!
