Whelp. You know how they say "third time's a charm"? When it comes to the 2013 Escape transmission, that's apparently not the case.
My first transmission failed at 55,000 miles. I didn't realize it at the time, and waited until it got really bad, then paid out of pocket for a new transmission at 65,000 miles (Nov 2020).
Transmission #2 failed at 81,000 miles (April 2022). It was even more catastrophic than the prior failure. The rebuilt transmission's warranty covered the repair.
Now, it's failing yet again with 93,000 miles (April 2023). Again, the rebuilt transmission's warranty will cover the repair.
If you're considering a Ford Escape, or any vehicle with Ford's dual automatic clutch transmission, carefully weigh whether you're up for continued transmission failures every 10k~30k miles.
Aside from the transmission, I've had few regrets with this car. But this is enough that I need to look elsewhere for my next vehicle. And soon. Because if history is any indicator, the fourth transmission will likely fail between 12 and 18 months.
