problem #1

Jun 292006

Escape 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles
The airbag light on the dash board flashes as it's supposed to and then remains illuminated. After having the car into the shop they informed me that it's a problem with the circuit and would cost an additional $100 just to move forward and may cost more. After researching the issue it appears that several people have this problem with their Escapes and it fails after being fixed repeatedly.
