  • miles
I have a 2002 Ford Escape. At 15,000 miles my engine blew. Two weeks earlier my sister who also has a 2002 Ford Escape lost her engine at 35,000 miles. Since then the car has been back for three rounds of repairs to the engine, the ball bearings, the power steering, and the coolant. This car is dangerous!
