Re: 2008 escape issues

At a little over 7K miles, there was a bad vibration which we thought was a wheel bearing. Turns out it was a bad bearing in the transmission. The dealership replaced all the bearings, a gear, a spindle, seals and gaskets - basically they rebuilt the transmission.
Then, at 10,3000 miles, the dealership replaced front rotors and pads. The pads were down to the metal, and the rotors had chips missing out of them.

We have not had any brake problems here I wonder if its a location problem.

Re: 2008 escape issues

Well... how drivable is it, how much do you want to spend on it, how mechanical are you... or do you want to be?

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
