2008 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


You know I am American and always felt the need to buy an American car. Well this is one of the worst cars I have owned. I noticed after my warranty ran out that the paint on the trim in the wheel wells chipped and was rusting. The dealership told me it was from rocks hitting my car. I looked on their lot and there where 4 of the same trucks with the same issue. All of the 2008 are rusting and I will NEVER but American again. I have had other issues but if you are still under warranty check for rusting and they will fix it otherwise you are out of luck. Mariners owners this goes for you as well.

Best Features

You know I can not say anything nice about this SUV

Worst Features

I suggest that auto retailers recall something if it is wrong instead of upsetting your customer. I will not even allow my children or Grand children own an American car again. Thanks Ford this was the last straw.
