  1. After looking at many cars, we ended up trading the 2013 Taurus on a 2018 Taurus. My wife likes the looks ride etc. this one is white with tan leather. Options were a newer used car Malibu/Camry/Accord/Fusion etc. but liked the roominess of the taurus.

  3. We just replaced our 2013 Taurus with 240,000 miles for my wife. she wanted a "car" not an suv/cuv. we test drove Malibu; she thought it seemed too small. Test drove Altima/Camry/Honda all base models in high 20's to 30k. All seemed too low to her compared to Taurus. Also, being "old" $30k for base sedan seemed high in cost. So, we ended up with a lower milage 2018 Taurus with leather seats. More tech, same basic car. she is happy. We would have got a new Fusion if one was available.

  5. i am 58, but this is good news. I still listen to Am radio on my morning commute, to get traffic "on the 8's" and local news. Being in NC that is what i tune too for Hurrican news when an approaching remnant heads this way. I still use my CD player in my 2017 Escape. for music mainly use Pandora thru the Bluetooth.
  6. my 2017 escape titanium 1.5. Small block replaced under warranty. Transmision rebuild on my dime at 105,000. I'm in NC and have rust issues on door bottom i wash every week. Ford will review once it rusts thru. ive repaired my self. So other than motor, trans, rust its been a great car. LOL
  7. My 1st new car was a 1992 Ford Ranger XLT. A/C, am/fm cassette, roll up windows, no cruise. Bought for $8500. drove for 75,000 miles, soled for $7500. $18,300 adjusted for inflation
  8. No Reserve: 7k-Mile 1994 Ford Tempo GL for sale on BaT Auctions - ending April 14 (Lot #103,964) | Bring a Trailer
  9. Transmission fixed for $4k. Ford Escape is crap quality. I've went from 92 Ranger to 96 Taurus to 2001 Taurus Wagon to 2005 Freestar to 2007 Explorer to 2013 Taurus to 2017 Escape. No looking at Honda Accord/Subaru Legacy for next car.
  10. Why Ford's CEO Is Exceedingly Frustrated With The Company (msn.com) How many Bronco Sports, Mavericks, Bronco, s F 150 etc. could have been sold if supply was there? Crossroads Ford Apex that used to have 100's in the large indoor show room, had 10 cars last time i was there.
  11. Would the recall I had done: have caused this? it doesn't seem like it. Recall below NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 22V413000 Report Date: JUN 09, 2022 Vehicles Affected: 2925968 Consequence: A damaged or missing bushing may prevent the vehicle from shifting into the intended gear, and cause the vehicle to move in an unexpected direction. Additionally, the vehicle may roll after the driver selects the 'Park' position. Either scenario increases the risk of a crash or injury. What You Should Do: Dealers will replace the under hood shift bushing and add a protective cap over the shift cable bushing, free of charge. Interim owner notification letters, informing owners of the safety risk, were mailed July 1, 2022. Remedy parts are expected to be available in 4th Quarter 2022. Owner notification letters were mailed October 27, 2022. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 22S43. Summary: Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2013-2019 Escape, 2013-2018 C-Max, 2013-2016 Fusion, 2013-2021 Transit Connect, and 2015-2018 Edge vehicles. The bushing that attaches the shifter cable to the transmission may degrade or detach.
  12. Small block replaced under warranty at 45,000 miles due to coolant issue. Door bottoms rusting (I'm in NC, so no salt) but not rusted thru so not covered under rust thru warranty. I fixed myself with Dremel and rust inhibiter and touch up paint. Transmission just went at 101,000. Taking to local transmission place to rebuild. So, the car seats are great, I've liked it, so other than the engine, transmission, and rust it's been a good car. (LOL) I've drove Fords since 1992, a lot of miles, and I'm about done.
