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


In March 2009, I wrote a review just after my tran. cooler went out after 38,000 miles. After more then a year and the car having 48,000 miles now, no problems have occurred. Its experienced -30 F for 3 weeks straight not to mention months of harsh winter snows in Montana. I can say that the car has held up well. I would suggest to anyone considering buying a used escape, is to get a warranty. It'll save you in the long round. Tran. cooler will cost $950 and they fail about 75% of the time. I have 8 friends with 2008 escapes and 6 have replaced them. If I were you get an Acura MDX instead you'll thank me later.

Best Features

Dash, Seats fold down, cheap warranty cause you'll need it, sound system is great, BUILT FORD TOUGH!!

Worst Features

acceleration on the highway and up hills, tran. cooler, more power, tran. cooler, tran. cooler
