Transmission as gotten worst the closer i got to 10,000. Not if i accelerate to hard after comes to a stop the transmission slips. I even get that useless wrench on the dashboard. I like the truck but i hope this is not something long term

Have been driving a 2010 Escape XLT since June 22nd and it has performed well. I have a small issue with sunlight sometimes glaring off the instrument cluster lens while driving. I am looking for an after market product to correct this but have not found anything yet.

Transmission was erratic when first purchased, thought I got a lemon. Then got the recall and it still is awful. Jerks when you shift. Gas pedal doesn't respond to foot pressure adequately. Car shakes at a stop. Pops into gear on occasion when putting in reverse. The transmission is a complete mess. I have driven a Mercury Mariner with the smaller engine and it did not act like this at all. Now I am stuck with a balance of over $20,000 and a car I feel unsafe in and I feel like I am on a carnival ride. Not a pleasure to drive. Very, very disappointed in this piece of junk.

Do you drive a 2010 FORD ESCAPE?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
