I bought my used 2014 Titanium 2.0 from a dealer a little over 3 months ago with 68,000 miles on it. Between the annoying chirping somewhere in the lift gate, squealing brakes (dealer says this is normal) , auto trans clunking into gear passing another car, I am so sorry I ever bought this car. I thought I had researched the escape thoroughly but after reading all the issues on this forum I wish I had found this forum prior to the purchase. I’ve owned alot cars over several decade, most of them preowned, but never experienced the issues I currently have or read about with this vehicle. So sad.
