I would have the dealer fix it and explain it to me exactly what it was and I
would come back to this group and post the description of the problem with the
findings and the solution that fixed it, for posterity.

'I have a 2005 Escape XLT with 2500 miles. When I first accelerate from 0 MPH
'to about 3 MPH, there is a grinding-squeaky-kind of sound for about 1/2 sec.
'The sound began when I reached about 1000 total miles. It does this each
'time I use the Escape(not just first thing in the morning). I read in
'another forum that it could be motor mounts needing lubrication. What do
'members of this forum think? Any ideas about this problem?:( How difficult
'is it for technicians to lubricate motor mounts?
