Re: 2008 Escape XLT, noise when accelerating just over 40 mph
What's the mileage?
I've heard of other users having a problem with the rear axle. If you have a 2wd it might just be suspension related. I'd get Ford to pinpoint the noise. If they can't ask the sales manager to take a similar Escape for a test drive with him/her and see if you can pinpoint the problem.
