Still loving the ESCAPE.
Turned over 100,000 on March 25th. This week, with 107,000 on the odometer, we finally found out what the shudder was. The Escape is getting a new transmission on Monday. Also, the oil cooler has been leaking for the last 40,000 miles. But, not enough for it to even drip and at $675 to fix, I'll leave it.
Another load of Amsoil Signature full-synthetic this week. New black wheels (thought the shudder was a bent wheel) and new Continental tires. Eager to see the results of the 106,000 mile oil analysis.
Lately I have had Healey Ford, in Goshen, NY, doing the work and have been very pleased with them.
I'll likely start looking for something new in the next several months and the 2017 Escape is sure going to be on the list.
