Asked by Jan 29, 2016 at 11:35 PM about the 2011 Ford Escape XLT

Question type: General

We just bought 2011 escape xlt with 144k, had 1
owner. I wasn't there when my husband test drove
it but I couldnt stand with the noise inside? I asked
my husband if it's engine tapping noise and he
said it's not. Is it normal to be this noisy?  And im
wondering if it's worth of buying this car since it's
5 yrs old with 144k......I saw a lot of transmission
problems..

My neighbor has a Escape and his is nice and quiet, even down the freeway, so if it is that noisey then something is wrong. Almost everyone here will tell you to take it to a shop that does a used car check, it is money well spent especially if they find something bad right off then you know to back away or have some dealing material when it comes to price.

That's way too many miles for a 5 year old vehicle! The average is 10 to 15 thousand per year. The noise could be wheel bearings. Hard to tell without hearing it. Was this a rental vehicle? Corporate vehicle? Police or taxi vehicle? Run a vehicle history report to find out. Personally I wouldn't buy it unless I knew the vehicle. My S-10 pick up, for example, was 8 years old with 264,000 on it when I bought it. I knew it from day one. It was a delivery truck at my job and I only paid $300 for it. I also bought it as a second vehicle. I say keep shopping. HTH. -Jim

There maybe a buyers remorse clause in your state, that will give you 48 hours to change your mind, call some other places and just ask them that, not where you bought it. Hopefully you can return it or maybe if you like it they will fix it. HTH

In NJ I believe it's a 3 day window to return it. Laws vary State to State. HTH. -Jim
