My Check Engine Light Came On At 5:30 Pm On 8/11 And, When I Got Home, My Husband Saw That The Car Had Been Leaking Oil And I Was Low On Oil Despite The Fact That I Had An Oil Change One Month Prior. While I Was Driving To The Dealership At 10:45 Am On 8/12, The Car Was Not Accelerating Normally And The Mpg Readings Were All Over The Place. As I Was Getting Off The Highway, The Car Began To Lose Its Ability To Accelerate Well, The Steering Wheel Began To Shake And Eventually The Car Lost The Ability To Accelerate Completely. I Was Driving Through A Toll Booth At The Time The Car Lost The Ability To Accelerate So I Coasted Through And Saw A Parking Lot For Toll Booth Operators. As I Was Trying To Make My Way To That Parking Lot, Smoke Began To Fill The Car Through The Vents. I Coasted Into The Parking Lot And Shut Off The vehicle. I Turned Off The vehicle And Ran Out At Which Point I Noticed That There Was A Fire Under The Hood Of The vehicle And Flames Were Escaping Through The Grill, Under The Hood And Out The Bottom. The State Police Arrived Immediately Thereafter And Used A Fire Extinguisher To Put Out The Flames. No Warning Notice Came Across The Dashboard Until The Car Lost Acceleration Ability Completely At Which Point The Screen Said To Shift To “p” And Manually Restart. At That Point, However, The Car Was Filling With Smoke So I Immediately Vacated, Shut Off The vehicle And Ran Away From The vehicle. I Do Not Know What Caused The Problem. I Have Filed An Insurance Claim And Am Awaiting Contact.

Vehicle was on fire. Mileage was 13773 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU9GD0HU. Ford Escape 2017 problem was reported in GLENMONT, NY. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 2 mph.

I Am Writing Due To My Concern About My 2017fordescape. I Bought The vehicle New In May 2017. Sept 8th ,the Engine Stopped Suddenly When I Braked To Pull Into The Parking Lot At Work..the Message On The Dash Board Was : Manual Start Required So I Put The Car In Park And Restarted It Without Difficulty I Went To Work For The Day. At The End Of The Day I Started The vehicle And Pulled Onto A Very Busy City Street . I Drove About 100 Feet When I Braked And The Car Shut Down Again ,in Traffic. I Had The Car Towed To The Dealership. On September 13th I Received A Call From Them That My Car Was Repaired And Ready To Go . I Was Reluctant To Trust This vehicle I Was Concerned It Was Unsafe However I Had No Choice But To Trust In Their Repair. September 22nd .i Am Commuting Home Again The Engine Completely Shuts Down When I Brake At Busy Intersection During A Rain Storm At Rush Hour It Would Not Restart This Was Very Frightening. I Turned On The 4 Way Flashers So I Exited The vehicle , Called 911 As I Was Afraid My vehicle In The Middle Of The Intersection Was Going To Cause A Major Accident. Cars Were Blowing Horns And Swerving To Avoid My Disabled vehicle. I Also Contacted My Husband As I Was Close To Home. He Was Able To Get The vehicle Going By Swapping Out A Fuse And I Got It Home. The vehicle Was Once Again Towed For Repair I Contacted ford Customer Service As I Feel This vehicle Is Defective And Unsafe This Was The Response I Received.i Understand That You Are Requesting That ford Motor Company Buy Back Your 2017fordescape. Regrettably, I Must Advise You That ford Will Not Be Buying Back The vehicle It Appears This vehicle Does Not Meet The Requirements For A Repurchase Or Replacement Under The State Guidelines . I Have Emails And Receipts But Am Not Sure How To Share Them For Your Purposes.

Mileage was 7000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU9JD0HU. Ford Escape 2017 problem was reported in BRAINTREE, MA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 20 mph.
