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.

Autostop Feature Endangers Lives. I Experienced An Almost Fatal Safety Incident With The Autostop Engaged. I Was Stopped, Exiting A Paved Driveway Onto A 2 Lane Road. I Decided To Make A Left Turn Across The Path Of A Large Truck That Had Just Turned The Corner 300 Ft Away. The Truck Seemed To Be Lumbering Along, So I Made The Decision To Pull Out Across Its Path And Make My Left Turn. Apparently The Truck Hit Its Peak Torque At That Time And Suddenly Sped Up, Just As I Pulled Out! At This Same Moment,the Engine Decided To Shut Itself Off To Conserve Fuel! I Pressed The Gas And Nothing Happened! The escape Rolled Into Oncoming Traffic! Not Knowing What To Do, I Pressed Accelerator To The Floor, The Engine Started Up And Sat There Thinking!!! I Was Stuck Like A Deer In Headlights! I Kept The Gas Buried In The Floor, And By Some Miracle The Engine Finally Revved Into Turbo Range. All 4 Wheels Started Spinning And It Suddenly Slingshot Me Across The Skinny 2 Lane Road. I Almost Lost Control And Ended Up In The Ditch. Fortunately, The Road Was Dry And The Awd And Steering Were Responsive, Allowing Me To Hop Into The Correct Angle, In The Proper Lane, Within A Hair’s Breath Of Being T-boned And Possibly Losing My Own Life And The Life Of My Passenger! I Have Been Having Nightmares About This For The Last Week And Have Not Been Driving The Vehicle. Less Than 250 Miles On Odometer When This Ocurred. This Autostop Feature Needs To Be Permanently Disengaged For Safety.

Mileage was 250 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU9G97HU. Ford Escape 2017 problem was reported in RICHMOND, VA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 0 mph.

Steering Wheel Locked Up While Driving, Twice!! First Time My 18 Year Old Daughter Was Driving On A Local Road And The Wheel Just Locked Up And She Couldn’t Steer The Car. My Son Who Was With Her Told Her To Put Her Hazards On And Shut The Car Down And Restart The Car, That Worked But Had It Towed To Dealer As None Of Us Were Taking A Chance It Would Happen Again. The Dealer Said Something Cracked In The Steering Column And They Fixed It. This Second Time, I Had The Car, Thank God, And While Trying To Pull Out Of A Parking Spot, The Wheel Was Completely Frozen, Again!!! This Is Completely Unacceptable And I Put Myself And My Daughter At Risk Every Time We Get Behind The Wheel!!!

While Driving On I-81 North In Pa, The Inside Layer Of The Windshield Developed A Small Crack At The Bottom Of The Glass. Nothing Hit The Glass. There Are No Chips Or Other Marks. On Monday 2/20/17 I Stopped At The ford Dealership And Spoke With The Manager. Because The Crack Was Inside The Vehicle, And The Outside Layer Was Not Cracked, The Manager Believed It Would Be Covered Under Warranty. The Dealer Took Several Pictures, And Called Me While I Was Driving Home To Ask Me To Come Back So That They Could Take More Pictures Because ford Was Not Satisfied With What The Took. A Day Later They Asked Me To Come To The Dealership Again Because ford Wanted Even More Pictures. On 2/24/17 ford Agreed To Cover The Replacement Under Warranty. Each Day The Crack Has Increased In Length. The Crack Appears To Have Started Near The “new For 2017” Wiper De-icer Element. A Cracking Window Is Not Structurally Sound And Can Most Definitely Put The Driver And Passengers At Risk Of Injury.

This Is A Safety Hazard As The Repeated Striking Of The Vehicle Body Can Cause The Wiper Blade To Fail Over Time, Resulting In Decreased Or Lost Visibility, Possibly Leading To A Vehicle Crash. The Issue Also Causes Cosmetic Damage Not Relevant To Safety Performance. Vehicle Is Scheduled For Repairs On April 3, 2017.

In Event Of Main Brake Failure, Parking Brake Cannot Be Manually Engaged As A Secondary Braking System Due To Introduction Of Electric Parking Brake Requiring Vehicle To Be Stopped To Engage Parking Brake. This Could Result In Fatality In The Event Of Main Brake Failure. (fyi. I Recently Had A Brake Hose Fail On A ’99 Chevy Pickup Truck When Approaching An Intersection. Using The Manual Parking Brake I Was Able To Safely Stop The Vehicle And Avoid A Collision. This Is Not Possible With Electric Parking Brake The Way It Is Implemented On 2017 ford Vehicles.)

Door Latch Handles On All Exterior Door Positions Do Not Return To The ‘home’ Position, Possibly Due To A Weak Or Poorly Adjusted Latch Handle Spring Or Other Part Of The Mechanism. When In This Position It Is Possible To Push The Door Open Without Touching The Release Handle For The Door Latch(es). This Can Create A Hazardous Situation When The Door Opens Unintentionally While The Vehicle Is Under Way, Or An Occupant Leans On The Door, Causing It To Open Without Warning. This Condition Is Replicable On All Doors, And Could Be Replicated While Vehicle Is Moving, But Safety Dictated That We Not Attempt A Moving Replication Of The Hazard. A Comparison To A Different Vehicle Of The Same Model, But One Year Older Indicates The Door Latches On The Subject Vehicle Require Extra Force To Operate. Vehicle Is Scheduled For Diagnosis And Repair At An Authorized ford Dealer On 3/20/16.

My Car Was Stopped On The Property’s Driveway, Transmission Was In Park. I Was Standing Outside The Car, And As I Opened The Driver’s Door To Get In, The Bottom Corner Of Door Gouged My Lower Left Leg And Peeled Back A Significant Chunk Of Tissue. Upon Closer Inspection, I Observed That This Piece Of Black Trim (which Covers The Entire Bottom Side Of The escape) Is Designed To Flare Out To A Sharp Point On Both Front Doors Of The escape. In My Opinion, This Is A Grossly Negligent Design. It Borders On An Intentionally Substandard Design, Elevating The Continuity Of The Black Trim Above Safety Concerns. In My Opinion, That Hazardous Point Fails To Meet Even The Minimum Threshold Requirements Of A Commercially Fit And Merchantable Vehicle. Result: Ten Stitches To Repair My Leg; Tetanus Shot; Oral Antibiotics; Complete Disruption To Quality Of Life As Mobility Is An Issue And I Attempt To Keep The Wound Clean, Dry And Uninfected.

1 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died. Mileage was 6700 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU0GD9HU. Ford Escape 2017 problem was reported in KINGSHILL, VI. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 0 mph.

The Contact Owns A 2017 ford escape. While Driving 40 Mph Or Above, The Contact Heard A Rattling Sound Coming From Underneath The Vehicle, And Felt Shaking. The Vehicle Was Taken To Bob Tomes ford (950 S Central Expy, Mckinney, Tx 75070), But The Cause Of The Failure Could Not Be Diagnosed. The Vehicle Was Not Repaired. Later, While Driving 60 Mph, The Driver’s Side Underbody Cover Became Loose And Began To Drag On The Road. The Vehicle Shook And The Contact Heard A Scraping Sound. The Vehicle Was Not Taken To A Dealer Or Independent Mechanic; However, The Contact Made An Appointment With Bob Tomes ford For Repairs. The Manufacturer Was Not Made Aware Of The Failure. The Approximate Failure Mileage Was 20,000.

I Leased A New 2017 ford escape With 379 Miles On The Odometer. When I Drove The Car Home From The Dealership, It Made A Creaking Noise By My Right Ear When I Pulled Into The Driveway. I Took Vehicle Back To The Dealer A Few Days After The Noise Was Made. The Dealership And A ford Engineer Tried Several Times To Fix The Noise With No Results. The Noise Remained. I Was In Contact With ford Motor Company About This Problem. ford Sent The Same Engineer Back To Work On This Vehicle. This Time The Dealership And ford Engineer Found That There Were Missing Welds Below The Front Left Door. The Missing Welds Were Where The Rocker Panel Welds To Several Other Pieces Of Steel, Under The Vehicle. This Repair Took Almost 2 Weeks To Complete. The Vehicle Only Made The Noise When The Body Would Flex(going From The Street Into The Driveway Or Similar Places That Made The Body Flex). The Area Welded Looks Like It Is A Structural Part Of The Vehicle. I Still Am Concerned That The Structure Of This Vehicle Is Not As It Was Designed To Be. I Also Worry That There Could Be Many Other 2017 ford escapes That Might Not Be As Strong As They Should Be In The Event Of A Collision.

Mileage was 381 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU9J9XHU. Ford Escape 2017 problem was reported in SIOUX CITY, IA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 2 mph.
