Summer 2012 my air failed. I was 3500 miles past warranty.
Quote to fix was $2200. Dealer admitted it was a faulty part that disintegrated and contaminated system. Was happening on many, many Escapes but Ford was not recalling. Ultimately, Ford paid for parts but I was stuck with over $900 in labor.
I can honestly say I will never buy a Ford again because of this. Ford knows there is a problem but they do not want to take responsibility.
2012 was the first summer we drove this Escape because I have a GM convertible I drive in summer. What a great disappointment.
Review about: Ford Warranty.
Monetary Loss: $950.
