I've had a few Ford Escapes and never had that problem. Probably a bunch of salt from the road got struck up there.

It's got to be the salt. Sad to say but I seriously doubt that Ford will do anything for you.

Happened to my Tribute, if you check the Escape forums, it's a common issue on the rear passenger side, the undercoating cracks and water gets underneath and rusts a hole into the body. You don't find it till it's too late. Specially in the salt belt of the US. No recall. The rest of the SUV is rusting as well, I'll drive it for as long as I can.
