Thoughts on a 11 ford escape

Recommended Posts

1. they like to cup tires

2. The PTO (the transfer case) likes to leak

3. Brake hoses like to crack (after they have been replaced they are fine)

4. Alternators are not cheap and NOT diy friendly (V-6)

5. Stab links

6. wheel bearings (higher mileage)

Other than that they are good little SUV's. Im not sure about pulling anything with them as they are a front wheel drive vehicle. The plus side is the fuel pump can be replaced on the boat launch with a philips screwdriver, rubber mallet, and a small prybar.

I personally am not aware of any normal or pattern problems with the transmissions. The very early models had coolers that cooled to good in the winter and would gel up the trans fluid which would burn up the transmission. Other than that I dont know of anything else.

Thank you so much this helps us very much. the Jeep we went to p/u the tranny went out on them when they drove it. doing searching on the net a lot of people had tranny issues on the Ford but it's so hard to know with what you see on the net. this one is a 3.0 with AWD thank you so much value your opinion.

    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?
