I am in process of helping my daughter buy a 2010 Escape Limited with 3.0L motor and AWD.  It's a 1-Owner vehicle with 135,000 miles from very reputable used car dealer in my town.  I have never owned a Ford.  Wondering if some members can tell me any common problems to look for.  It runs and looks like new.  No rust inside door bottom edges.  There is one problem--It keeps killing the battery.  Reputable used car dealing trying to diagnose this issue.  Engine looks great.  Thought it had a ticking sound at very front.  It has tons of power and very smooth acceleration.  Cannot even hear trans shifting from park to reverse to drive.  I do notice read drive shaft and Cat have a lot of rust on them but frame is rust-free.  Looks like a fine vehicle but I know every vehicle seems to have it's own set of quirks.  Thanks for any info.  Buying it tomorrow.
