right rear wheel housing rusts completely through allowing the shock to detach from the vehicle. after an online search this is a very common incident. after contacting the local ford dealer, there is a back-order on the right rear wheel housing with no expected date of delivery. this is the only wheel housing on the vehicle that is rusting out and causing issues. the only time you start to realize that there is an issue is if you start the hear a "clunk" coming from the car, however; there is a rubberized undercoat that prevents you from seeing the damage until it is too late or a knowledgeable mechanic with the issue looks specifically at the wheel housing. *tr

i was driving my ford escape and i started to hear a banging noise come from my right rear tire. to later find out that it is my strut tower is rusted out. it is ridiculous that so many people have the same problem and that ford has not done anything to fix the matter, it is irresponsible.i believe that ford should take responsibility for their vehicle's and fix them or figure out how to solve the problem.
