Ford Motor Complaint - Ford Escape Brake problems!
ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO -- The brakes on my 2005 Ford Escape started making terrible grinding noises. I was told by two shops that my pads needed to be replaced. Had them replaced but the problem continued. The pads were replace again - problem persisted. Since then, I've had 3 shops look at the brakes and they couldn't find the problem. I finally took it to Ford (I was told $19.99 for inspection but they CHARGED me $102.93). They told me I had 'chatter marks' and needed to replace all 4 rotors for $700. They told me you couldn't miss the 'chatter marks'. Funny how none of the other places saw the marks. I did some research about 'Chatter Marks' - nothing really but a lot of information on this same brake grinding problem on the Escape.
I called Ford and they said can't do anything because I took it to another shop. I've been buying Fords for 20 years! They just lost a loyal customer - I'll never buy a ford again!!!
