The Biggest Nightmare I Have Ever Faced

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


This car was a really nice car to drive around, especially having a workplace full of BMWs and Audis. I liked the comfort of the cloth seats and the interior design. One thing I absolutely hated is the reliability. My car is only 2 years old (I bought it in 10/08) and it is the most unreliable thing I ever faced. The car shifts very roughly into gear and the car lurches itself forward. I'm not sure if it's something to do with the gas or with the transmission coolant recall... I absolutely hate that car now. It can't keep the value and if you did get into an accident with this car (airbags deployed) you will not like the fact that it is 10x more of a bumpier ride. I regret getting this car..

Best Features

Interior design, fun to drive, exterior design, comfort of seats, cargo space

Worst Features

Reliability *which is one of the worst now*, build quality *in which they should make the car sustain a 25 MPH impact (airbags deployed) (*examples are: smooth ride, less noisier engine*), transmission, price needs to be modified (I could get a Hyundai Tuscon for $4,000 less than what I paid for my Escape), less expensive parts on the car
