2010 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


This is my 2nd Ford in 5 years and my 4th transmission.
I had a Ford Fusion that had a transmission fail 1,500 miles past warranty and was stuck 250 miles from home.
Ended up working a deal with a Ford dealer in Los Banos and bought a 2010 Ford Escape with 38k miles.
3 months later the transmission failed.
Got a new tranny from factory (no cost) and now a yr later it has failed again.
Dealer looked up history and learned this will be the car's 4th transmission.
There seems to be a lot of forums and posts about how bad Ford's transmissions are.
Car is no good if the transmission doesn't work.
Wish I limped into a Chevy or Honda dealer down in Los Banos.

Best Features

Like I said in the review, can't find any favorite features when the transmission doesn't work.

Worst Features

Seems like Ford has forgotten how to build quality cars. Maybe they should go to some of their competitors and learn how to build a quality product.
