problem #1

Dec 052007

Escape 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,000 miles
This is the second time the button on the emergency brake on my 2004 Ford Escape limited edition has broke. The first time was fixed under warranty, this time Ford is refusing to fix it for free. This is safety equipment that has failed twice on a SUV that is less than 3 years old.
