2003 Ford Escape from North America
Running boards and plastic trim (around entire lower half of vehicle discolored and dealer replaced. Battery went dead after 1 year and dealer replaced. After the 36,000 mile warranty ran out, the CD system quit playing and the gas pedal has started sticking.
It would be a decent vehicle if not for serious quality issues. It will be impossible for an average working person to get FORD to repair the faulty vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

This person is right about the report he posted. After the 36,000 mile service, the CD System quits and so do other things on the car, like the key-less entry, side view mirrors, and the gas pedal drops or sticks. I wonder if Ford knows about all these issues? If so it should be covered under manufacturer defects, or at least warn customers about it, if it is a service gizmo to get people back in the service shop. The freedom to enjoy your car after paying so much money for it is not the same anymore. It feels like FORD still owns your vehicle and can do whatever they feel like with it.

Actually, there is a large recall that you should have been informed about the gas pedal sticking, bring it to Ford.
