After 2 months of looking and test driving it came down to 2 choices that my wife liked. She liked both the Subaru Forester and the Ford Escape. She took both for back to back test drives the same day and decided she liked the Escape better. She liked the seating position and just the way the Escape "felt" when driving. Sync was also a good selling point. Then the hunt began for a 2010 Escape Limited 2.5 automatic AWD in steel blue. Love the internet! We located one about 45 miles from our house. Did the negotiating right over the internet. Came to a price and picked the vehicle up. Dealership was great. Had the vehicle ready for inspection/test drive when I arrived. Parked right in front. Some may say the 4cyl on the Escape is "noisy". It is really no noisier than any other 4cyl SUV on the market today. The power is adequate. We have no use for a v6 and wanted the additional MPG. Can't race it that is for sure Love the sync system

This occurred on my 2010 Escape Limited. Today I was told that there is a Ford TSB just released. It is a problem with the bushing. They applied lubricant. Hopefully this solved the squeak. Otherwise Ford replaces the bushings.
#48 of 71 ABS and Traction Control Light
Apr 01, 2010 (3:57 am)
I purchased a 2010 Escape XLT 2 weeks ago. I got all of 13 miles from the dealership and the ABS and Traction Control light came on. Once I turned off the car, turned it back on and then made a turn, the light went out. This has occured about 8 times now. I brought it back to the dealership and they said they had to reset the computer system. I got the car back yesterday and on my way home the lights came on again. Does anyone have any suggestions?

It has been one full day after the Ford service did the warranty work. I have not heard the "squeak". Hopefully, this should do it.

Is this from acceleration? I think I may have heard this on my wifes new 2010 Ford Escape 4WD. Does anyone have the TSB#?

Yes accelerating from a stop. My Ford service people lubricated the bushings according to the TSB and now it is fine. I do not know the TSB #.

Look at the April issue of Consumer Reports. The stopping distance of the Escape/Mariner for 2010 is no worse than most other suv's. They even point that out in their report.
