Ford Escape 2003: Transmission fluid change to fix shuddering
THANKS for your input. It sounds like Ford had taken care of the problem and Dennis and Helen should go back to their dealer and ask for the fluid change.Show more
Ford Escape 2003: Gearbox rumbling
I HAVEN'T had any other complaints about this problem, so can't really help, but perhaps other owners might let us know if they have had the problem and what was done to fix it.Show more
Ford Escape 2007: Another cracked wheel
IN DEFENCE of Ford, it sometimes happens that an owner will hit a kerb or a hole in the road and damage the wheel, but they should check the wheel themselves to verify if the crack has been caused by driver error or not. That they dismissed your claim without checking isn't good enough, even if your car is out of warranty. It's even more disappointing that they have chosen not to act when the dealer supports your claim. If the dealer is prepared to make a report on its findings I would use it and pursue Ford for compensation.Show more

The improvement is caused by a range of things -- pad material, fluid and disc design and construction are some of them. But one of the consequences appears to be greater wear of rotors. You seem to accept that tyres wear out, but you're not prepared to accept that discs will wear out, even though it's inevitable.Show more
