Question about 2001 Ford Escape
Have a 2005 ford escape XLT 4WD and when I get between 45-60km per hour the vehicle shakes like I'm driving on a washboard. Took it to Ford - they told me I need a new drive shaft - $1200 with taxes and labour. I already replaced the alternator in 2007 - that was over $800 because of where it is positioned. Takes hours and hours to get at it because it is buried under the motor. I think Ford needs to give us all a discount. Sounds like these are common problems with the Ford Escape.
