2008 Escape Hybrid.

Differential to the rear drive wheels had to be replaced at 110K miles.

Front suspension parts are prone to falling apart and needed more that average frquency of rebuilds.

This info. concurs with similarcomments by other owners of 2006-2012 Escapes. The hybrid engine always ran well.

ABS, engine check, O2 Sensor lights on from 90K onward.

Car was rendered uninspectable unless we were willing to spend many hundreds of dollars to diagnose and make the repairs.

Ultimately the car was not worth the money to do so - Sold it for 1000.00.
Overall build quality of the car was cheap and not of high quality.

26-33 MPG consistently.
