Car was not shifting properly. Sometimes there would be a "bang" when Shifting
car had not been running properly since 7500 miles . Each time the car was brought in (2x) I was told it was not broken or needed software updates. Finally the transmission was found to have broken parts and was rebuilt.

Just purchased car! While leaving one interstate and merging onto another, car suddenly felt as though driving over a washboard, but the pavement was smooth. Let up on gas, gradually sped up, and problem was gone. Don't think it's fixed.

I noticed a small puddle of fluid in the garage. The vehicle had never leaked before. It appeared to be steering related until we realized it has electric steering. Finally researched drivers side cv leak is common. Appeared to be first time
This is a fleet car. Many of our 2010 Escapes (all have 4 cylinder engines) are having transmission problems. This one had to be rebuilt and have a couple of clutches replaced. Of 5 employees I've talked to all have noticed problems.
DRIVER SIDE TRANSMISSION LEAK.
SHAFT, BUSHING AND SEAL REPLACED
Transmission is toast. From the net this a common problem in 09 Escape. Short of completely replacing transmission and waiting for parts etc. the problem of crappy shifts (and I mean crappy) will remain. Don't want to be without it for the time needed.

My RPM's were nearly 3000 in subzero weather for the first 15 minutes of driving. I wanted to know if this was weather related, or was my transmission telling me it was about to have problems. Service manager told me we needed to "reprogram PCM." It was a software update. It cost me $150. I was not happy. Free on computers. It led to my digital display being inaccurate for the next 1000 miles.
bad piston. caused by revving engine to high due to transmission failure.
the rear end differential needs to be replaced as the bearings are wearing out. Ford says that the replacement part costs $2200.00 / $3600 installed. None of the Escape forums list this kind of problem.

Had a transmission service (flush), same day service, approx $150 cdn. Done by dealer. Did not fix problem (transmission shudder, and miss). Then developed a transmission leak, paid approx $100, did not fix the leak. Was told it was a different problem, estimate $300 to fix, thatís when I traded it in.
Driving down interstate...bang...vehicle stalled briefly...kept going...bang again...vehicle lost power...forced to pull to side of interstate...tranny fluid everywhere...hole in tranny...shop said tranny exploded.
The shifter cable "keeper" that attaches to the gear select shaft at the top of the transmission, broke, leaving the Escape in neutral. Sunday, so I made do with some keepers bought at Ace Hardware and some ingenuity. Still need to buy actual part.
