Crazy that Yahoo! picked this up. I guess I should have let that semi rear-end me when my VTi failed so Saturn would have addressed this issue much sooner. Instead, CAC told me to %^&&* off since...

I forgot to mention that after the first six months of trouble, I did complain to CAC and they actually gave me an extended powertrain warranty (5/60) and one month's car payment, "for my troubles". ...

I'm sorry, but having your transmission die once and loose power twice while driving on the highway (in the first 15000 miles) is not "blowing things out of proportion."

I'm glad some people...

I had my first VTi fail at 8900 miles on my 2003 AWD VTi. Second VTi started to exhibit the same symptoms after 6000 miles. By 15000 total miles, I had started BBB process. Now, I don't drive a...

My former Vue had two cracks. Dealer replaced the plastic piece under warranty. I think it might have to do with flex on the roof/pillar/rack system which causes the joints to flex and thus crack.

The 2005 Ford Escape's AWD system is both mechanical and computer-aided. I think it works very similarly to the Vues (I'm not an engineer however), but with the aid of the computer. With no switch...
