Escape 4-cyl

  • 50,365 miles


Since I have had this Ford Escape 2006 I have it has been in the shop for brakes tire pressure light steering pumps broken and the most in two months I had two accidents because brakes will stop and then release. I keep up on the maintenance which requires brakes check my complaints and after the first they accident in March we asked Ford to check brakes the said it was fine less than a month later another accident same thing brakes stop and release we took it back in and the master cylinder had been broken I have children I drive children and this could definitely have hurt us or someone else my car is nothing but trouble and dangerous actually the body shop said it was broken before. The dealers conveniently say I did not complain but all service checks my brake drums are check I complain of parking brake and excessive noise.
