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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2004 Ford Escape looks pretty good compared to other Ford Escape model years, but still has a trend of transmission problems, and engine problems from the NHTSA complaint data — so it's not a model year we can recommend.

The vehicle has demonstrated this issue early in its life and was into the dealership for the problem. They refused to say it was a design issue although we know others who have same gripe. They shared the "fix" cost when I complained but refused to admit it was a FORD issue. The symptoms have returned now at 102K miles and I'm taking it to a local tranny repair shop for evaluation. Ford should step up here but refuses to.
