2008 Ford Escape Repair Question
What causes shaking above 80 km/h
Have you checked the tie rods?Does it ever start shaking after hitting a bump?
Sorry should have mentioned the car was safetied 3 weeks ago, anything included in a safety in Ontario should not be an issue. I believe tie rods are part of that
Also no shaking at all when hitting bumps at any speed, it is a constant shake increasing with speeds above 80 km/h (sorry for the km Im canadian)
When i did new york state inspections it didnt include tie rods or ball joints are you sure there included?Also i wouldnt depend on that and assume there good.People get in a hurry and over look things.
Very true, I will have them looked over tomorrow. Tie rods and ball joints would cause an issue only over 80km/h? and not have any noises or issues when hitting bumps or turning?
Not so much ball joints but tie rods keep the wheels from moving side to side.Most people don't even know they have bad tie rods.
it has 4wd or allwd?

Also have the whole front end check and make sure there is no bent rims etc.
No bent rims, had that checked, it is an all time 4WD, I believe it has 80% power going to the front wheels and 20% to the back until you need it (start slipping) then it will switch to 50/50
If that's the case I would check the axles also.
