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


I purchased my 2008 Ford Escape in Jan 2009 used. I never had a problem with it until Nov 2011 when I had to pay $900 for a new transmission cooler. Come to find out Ford had a recall on this until Aug 2010 and I was never notified! After calling Ford repeatedly they were no help at all!
Today is Jan 17, 2012 - my car is back in the shop for the same problem!
Way to go Ford for backing up their customers! Last Ford I will own. Getting it fixed and selling it for a different brand!

Worst Features

The seats are made of recycled bottles and stain like crazy. Fix the seats and fix the transmission cooler. Back up your customers!
