2009 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Loved my 2009 Escape at first then started noticing problems that I first thought were just a fluke, but may turn out to be something more which concerns me. Every now and then I noticed it would slam into gear when switching from Drive to Reverse and vice versa. Also runs rough from time to time and right wheel rides like it's wobbling from time to time. Car stalled on me this past weekend, I could not get it started and had to have it towed. Not happy at all considering the vehicle is less than a year old and I've got 5 more years to pay on it. I hope this is not a sign of things to come. According to my sales rep, the vehicle started "right up" this morning- the jury is still out.

Best Features

Drivability...fun to drive, for a 4 cyl has good passing power and decent acceleration

Worst Features

Transmission needs to work more smoothly.
