Just Pulled Out Of The Gas Station. Heard A Loud Boom. Pulled Into Nearby Parking Lot. Discovered Passenger Rear Tire Had Blown And Knocked The Rear Bottom Door Panel Off. The Condition Of The Tire Was Horrific! If I Had Been On The Highway Traveling At A High Rate Of Speed The Results Could Have Been Fatal. The Original Tires When I Purchased The Vehicle From My Local ford Dealership. Michelin X Green 235/55 R17. The Best Way I Can Describe The Tire Is That It Looked Dry Rotted Or As If It Had Been In A Shreaded. Completely Dissatisfied With The Customer Service I Received From Dealership, Michelin, And The Initial Call To My Insurance Carrier. Accusing Me Of Hitting A Pot Hole Or Other Negligence On My Part That Must Have Contributed To The Tire Blowing Out. I Am Concerned About My Safety And That Of Others With The Same Tires.

Mileage was 32980 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU0G92HU. Ford Escape 2017 problem was reported in MACEDONIA, OH. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 10 mph.

On March 3, 2018, My Daughter Was Driving My Car And Had Just Turned Off Of The Interstate. She Was Driving Approximately 50 Mph When She Lost Control Of The Car And It Veered Off Of The Road Into The Ditch. The Tire Had Come Off Of The Car And The Rim Had Totally Split Into Two Parts – Front And Back. Her Friend’s Husband Put The Spare Tire On And She Drove It Home – Approximately 60 Miles. We Took The Rim To Our Local ford Dealer Who Informed Us It Was Not Covered Under Warranty Because The Edge Of The Rim Had About A 1-2 Inch Dent In It Caused By Hitting A Pot Hole. None Of The Drivers (my Daughter, My Husband, Or Myself) Of The Car Recall Hitting An Out-of-the-ordinary Large Pot Hole. There Was No Damage To The Tire And It Was Not Out Of Alignment. I Reported The Damage To ford Customer Support And Received A Legal Claim Number And Was Told That I Would Get Something In The Mail Within 15 Business Days. It Has Now Been 18 Days And I Have Received Nothing. I Called Them Again Yesterday Informing Them That I Do Not Feel Safe Driving The Car. I Am Asking For All Four Rims To Be Replaced (i Have Replaced The Damaged One). It Also Ruined The Brake Line And Damaged The Struts. It Cost $25 To Have The Tire Put Back On The Car And Balancing Checked. I Believe Since The Car Is Under Warranty And There Is No Question In My Mind That The Rim Was Faulty, That I Should Not Be Out A Penny In Repairs.

Mileage was 27000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU0JDXHU. Ford Escape 2017 problem was reported in KINGFISHER, OK. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 50 mph.

My Adult Son On A Visit From Out Of State Suspected My Brand New Car Was Out Of Alignment Both From Driving Then From Seeing It From Driving Behind Me But We Have Serious Illness And Impending Deaths And I Compensated For The Handling Of The Vehicle For 9 Months Until It Started Needing Air In The Rear Passenger Tire More And More Frequently. Assuming It Was A Slow Leak – I Kept Filling It. I Had Just Lost A Daughter And My Mother Was On A Deathbed And My Husband Had A Heart Attack So The Best I Could Do Was Run Up And Down The State From Hospital To Hospital Filling The Tire. In February Just Under 12 Months Old The Driver Side Tire Also Began To Require Air, And The Passenger Side Got Worse. Hubby Required Quadruple Heart Surgery And My Mother Also Passed. These Events Brought My Son Back To The State Where He Forced Me To Bring The Car To The Garage To Find What The Air Leak Was About. The Repairman Would Not Let Me Leave With The Car Without New Tire As He Was Sure I Would Not Make It Down The Highway Alive! His Assessment Was They Car Alignment Was So Twisted Must Have Been That Way Off The Manufacturing Line. He Installed New Tires And Told Me To Contact The Dealer Immediately. After 4 Attempts, With Full Explanation I Finally Sent Pictures And A Note That I Would Call The News Media- The Took The Car In And Said I Twisted It In A Pot Hole But They Would Fix It! Its Been 22 Days And Now They Admit A Pothole Would Have Had To Have Been A Large Sinkhole To Have Twisted The Frame And They Are Trying To Install Parts To Make It Right! I Think It Should Have Been Built Right In The First Place- Should Have Been Tested Before It Was Sold To Name And I Should Have One That Was Built Right Not A Rigged And Fixed One. I Have Called And I Have Written Detroit To No Avail, My Life Was In Danger And I Fear The Dealer And That Particular Car. I Will Attach Pictures.

Mileage was 5000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU9J96HU. Ford Escape 2017 problem was reported in LODI, NJ. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

I Showed This To The Dealer And They Had Me Drop It Off On A Saturday And They Fixed The Problem That Monday. The Issue Was A Fuel Sensor. I Also Noticed The Wipers Were Making A Lot Of Noise And We Have Been Having A Lot Of Rain. The Wipers Would Stutter Quite A Bit. I Took It To The Dealer And Couple Of Times And They Finally Fixed. They Said It Was A Known Issue. I Also Noticed I Would Get A Low Tire Message. I Took It To Them The First Time And They Put Air In The Tire. I Received The Message The Second Time And Put Air In The Tire. I Received The Same Message A Few Days Ago, I Took The Car Back To The Dealer And They Told Me I Had 2 Nails In The Tire And Tried To Sell Me A Tire. Needless To Say I Wasn’t Happy.

There Seems To Be A Recurring Problem With The Lug Nuts.was Told By ford Sales After 50,000 Mile Service, That I Had To Replace The Lug Nuts (at My Expense) As They Were Swelling And Might Not Be Ale To Remove The Tire. There Was A Class Action Suit First Filed In 2017 And A Judge Threw It Out In Jan Of This Year. This Problem Is Serious, If You Have A Flat Tire With The Swollen Lug Nuts, It Is Impossible To Remove The Tire. Please Open This Investigation As It Seems It Is Not Only ford But Other Vehicles As Well.
