Rear Main Seal Leak

2010 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


I really like the style of the vehicle and love the sync, however, the hard shifting of the 6 cylinder and the fact that I am currently majorly bummed that the vehicle started leaking oil with less than 8K miles on it and has now been in the shop for 4 days having the engine pulled to repair this is very disturbing. Based on 1st oil change and transmission recall experience, this just may be the beginning of an unhealthy vehicle relationship. I removed the passenger seat headrests because they were just in the way. I'm really kinda missing my Toyota right now.

Best Features

Sync. Has a good heater. The gas pedal is ergonomically comfortable for a person with small feet!

Worst Features

Can't have just the front window down without cracking the back ones because of the 'reverb' affect in the passenger cab. I've found random screws in the floorboard of the front passenger compartment, from what?
