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


I was so excited to buy my second Ford Escape, first one was a 2001 that I drove forever.
I bought my 2008 Escape 18 months ago and at less than 90,000 miles needed a new transmission.
Guess what??
The new transmission Ford put in doesn't work either!!!!
I also need $3,000 additional dollars to put into including a new air conditioner, oil pan and the ABS sensor needs fixed.
The word around town when you talk to transmission mechanics is that the 2007, 2008 Ford Escape and Mazda Tribute are bad news!
Others who work at Ford plants say the Escape is called a parts car, aka they make it knowing that parts are going to need to be repaired quickly
If you have this problem please call Ford

Best Features

Inside is very roomy and spacey. Great for having kids! The inside is perfectly designed, except it can be difficult to clean with all the small spaces. I love the CD player etc.

Worst Features

Ford is supposed to be making a car for the middle class, it should be made much more sturdy.
