2006 Ford Escape Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 222006

Escape 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 8,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Approximately every 8,000 miles the parking brake on the manual transmission, inline-4, fwd loosens and must be taken to the dealer to be tightened. Thus far, this has occurred twice. While parking on a hill this is a safety concern, especially since the clutch no longer holds the vehicle in place after 17,000 miles.
