Be warned: Escape the Escape!!
New torque converter installed.
Both head seals replaced.
Rear diff seal replaced.
Power steering leaks.
Transmission fluid leaks.
Engine stalls - intermittently.
Windows rattle when half down.
Air conditioner stopped conditioning!
Left hand drive shaft needed replacing.
Transmission shifts erratically.
The Escape looks like it has the goods, but unfortunately it's all show and no go. Under the facade of its great looks and macho image is a car that offers very little value for money. Its transmission and engine are exceedingly noisy and the quality of the interior is woeful. The transmission is just plain BAD and the engine very thirsty. I made a mistake buying the Escape now I want to ESCAPE the ESCAPE!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
