Escape 4WD 6-cyl

  • 55,000 miles

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

Failure of wheel bearing, left(driver) side front. Second time in less than 100K miles that the bearing is failing. Possible design or manufacturing defect. When searching the web I came upon hundreds of consumer complaints of the same failure of model years 2001 to 2007. Bearings should last over 150K miles. Sudden failure will result in loss of control and or loss of brakes. I bought a different brand of bearing and the same one failed. Vehicle is driven on road.
