Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Ford Escape Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 142007

(reported on)

Escape XLT V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,588 miles


While under warranty the callipars failed which ford repaired, a short time later the master cylinders also had to be replaced which Ford would not cover. My brakes required complete replacement which Ford would not cover. My escape has had 4 recalls, 1 which I know for certain I paid out of my own pocket to repair, sensor light remaining on. Brakes requiring complete replacement, now the the hatch is giving me problems, my struts are also needing to be replaced. I bought the escape Brand New off the lot in July 2003 and slowly rebuilding it due to part failure piece by piece.
