    poorer front crash ratings on early 08 FEH

    What's the story with the poorer (3-star) front crash ratings for the early 08 FEH produced before June 6, 2007? What was the defect and how was it corrected? How to avoid these guys on the pre-owned market?

    I doubt that there was any

    I doubt that there was any actual change in the Escape's structural components in the middle of the production year so I would suggest that either:

    There was an error in the test procedures or the reporting thereof . .

    or

    you worry about this stuff too much.

    You are incorrect on both

    You are incorrect on both counts. Ford switched out a poorer flloorboard on June 7, 2007.

    The Ford Fusion actually had

    The Ford Fusion actually had the same thing done. I believe vehicles made after a January 2007 date have the 5 star crash rating.

    The Escape is a 9 year design and this hinders its ability to become five star crash vehicle and four star roll-over.

    I have a 2008 Escape Hybrid

    I have a 2008 Escape Hybrid that was manufactured after May of 07. The sticker shows 4 stars for frontal crash/driver and 5 stars for the other categories.

    (And if you knew the answer why did you ask the question? I still think you worry about this stuff too much.)
