2008 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


First and Foremost...the seats are horrible with just water they stain right away..had to buy seat covers because the backseat looked horrible..I had to bring it on on a Recall and sure enough I had nothing wrong with it...within a week the actuator of one of the Door locks was not working and now the Cruise Control is not working and it is not the Fuse because I replaced that..from an insider who I know works for the Service Dept at the same Ford Dealership advised me that when you bring your suv/car in for repair..they do things so that you have to bring it in again...I can not confirm that they deactivated my cruise control and it is now out of warranty..Soo sad they can't be trusted

Best Features

The Style of the Ford Escape and Keyless Entry

Worst Features

The Seats and the location of the Cruise Control..also having Ford Dealership Service Dept that will not ruin another feature that requires you to bring it in for servicing so that they can make money off of you...need a Trustworthy company to do the job right...they deactivated my Actuator for a Door Lock and thankfully it was under Warranty, but not happy that I come to find through a Ford Employee that they do things on purpose so that you have to bring the vehicle back for servicing so they can make money off of you..I do not have a functioning Cruise Control and afraid to go back for it to be fixed..I replaced the Fuse and it is definitely not that..
