2004 Ford Escape XLT 3.0 from North America
Struts & shocks.
I have had my 2004 Ford Escape for at least 5 years now; it was passed down to me.
Other than regular maintenance, I've had no real problems like other owners. It could be because my Escape is usually garage kept and not abused like so many others, but I will admit Ford did build these SUVs kind of flimsy and not as sturdy as their Japanese counterparts like Toyota, Honda, and Nissan. But I can't complain too much; it was given to me free of charge.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Getting a garage kept free car is great. You are right there’s nothing to complain over. My mom gave me a new one long ago while I was in college. Never forgot how selfless and great that was. I was an only child. When my mom finally retired and was living alone, I totally surprised her with the same. Never asked for one and she was shocked. Kept her healthy independence going. No car I have ever bought personally for my own use was ever more satisfying. You can’t take material with you. If you can do this for a elderly parent, I guarantee you will see what I mean by this. It’s absolutely great. Thanks for the review.
