#253 of 259 2013 Ford Escape Stone leather seats
Feb 21, 2013 (12:38 pm)
I am going for 2013 Ford Escape with Stone leather seats. But after seeing forum posts about stained seats, I am tensed and now in double minds.
Can anyone with "stone leather" seats on 2103 Ford Escape confirm that they too see spots on the seats out of nowhere? Also, water/snow flakes creating stains is also a problem with these "stone leather seats" or is it only with cloth seats?
This is going to be my first Ford car, so a bit nervous. Need to make up my decision in 2-3 days.

I have the stone leather,
No spots from water although not too much rain or snow has entered my car.
They are nice looking but they do pick up the dirt stain easy.
I have cleaned them with a mild soapy water and they have come clean no problem there with the water. I have 1800 miles and have cleaned them 3 times takes 3 minutes. If you are not worried about heat in the summer I would go with the darker color, my wife wanted the stone, although the darker color will get hot.
Just finished our longest trip so far very hilly terrain almost mountain passes got 27 almost all hwy 32 degrees 70 mph traveling about 375 miles.
1.6 ltr FWD No problems with the car.

I have Stone Leather in my 2011 Taurus and that's why I ordered black leather for the Escape that I'm waiting for.
#256 of 259 Cure for 2008 Ford Escape SEAT STAINS
Sep 04, 2013 (6:28 pm)
So we have had our 2008 Escape for about 3 years now and the seats were horribly stained. Some did have the white rings around them, some did not. Ford dealer said there was nothing they could do and I had tried so many things to get rid of them UNTIL my last resort was posting a message on Facebook asking my friends to give suggestions for stains. One friend sent me one that had been circulating on FB and to my amazement, it works!!! My seats are so much cleaner and the stains have gone away. It really is amazing that this works! The "recipe" is 1 C. Blue Dawn Dish Soap, 1 C. White Vinegar and 1 C. Club Soda. You put this all in a spray bottle and spray the seats liberally. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and then scrub with a clean brush. I also followed this up with wiping down with a clean white rag. If you have the awful seat stains, you MUST TRY THIS...I wish I could post my before and after pictures..I am totally amazed, still, at how great this works!!!

I hate leather..hot in the summer and damn cold on teh butt in the cold weather. Rather have cloth. The so called environment seats feel like the old polyester seats of the 60's. And classless! To each their own.
#258 of 259 after warranty problems
Sep 26, 2013 (12:52 pm)
naturally just after warranty is off, a $1000 expensive for the front suspension. A click sound which affected the tires. You hear it when you are backup up on a hill. Its the rubber bushing on the link that is worn out. Then there is rust forming on the left passenger door lip, & the rear tail gate, long before warranty. Unless its a perferation, Ford wont do anything.
