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.

I Am Writing Due To My Concern About My 2017 ford escape. 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 2017 ford escape. 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.

fords 1.5l Engine Has A Fuel In Oil. Even After Oil Change After Car Driven Just 30 Miles Highway Miles Oil Had Almost A Quart Of Fuel In It. Turbo Is Burning Coolant. Every Two Weeks Have To Add Coolant To Reservoir Because Turbo Is Burning It. Transmission Whines Very Loud On Take Offs And Up Shifts And Downshift For No Reason When Running At Same Highway Speeds. Cars Has Very Poor Power, But Eats Fuel Like A V-8. Fuel Mileage Is 17 To 19 Mpg Highway 16-17 City. Not Even Close To The 30 Mpg They Claim It Gets. Bought Car New In June 2017 And Have Had Nothing But Problems From Engine To Transmission To Interior To Electrical Problems. Will Take Back To Dealer Again To Be Told ” They Can’t Duplicate Problem”. So I Guess Motor Needs To Catch Fire Or Someone Has To Get Killed Before ford Really Address’s The Problems. Car Has Little Over 12,000 Miles On It Now And Problems Still Have Not Been Fixed. I Contacted ford In Detroit, Mi About The Problems And They Could Have Cared Less. The “can’t Duplicate Problem” Saying From Dealership Seem To Be Detroit fords Answer To Everything To Avoid Fixing The Problems I Am Sure They Are A Where Of. I Am Not The First Or Last Person To Report To Be Having All These Problems. ford Seem To Be Hoping To Run Problems Out Long Enough So They Don’t Have To Fix Them Under Warranty And Make Them My Problem To Fix. After A Little Looking Around The Internet I See Many People Are Having The Same Problems With These ford escapes As I Am And Getting Blown Off By ford. ford Has Yet To Issued One Tsb For Any Of These Problems They Clearly Know Are Happening With These Cars And Motor’s. ford Has Issued Band Aids That Didn’t Work For Earlier Years But They Have Never Fixed The Problem Right. How Many People Must Be Injured Or Die Before You Make ford Fix The Problem Right? I Think It’s Time To Contact A Lawyer.

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.

I Traded In My 2007 ford Fusion For A 2017 ford escape Se Over 5 Weeks Ago. I Have Been Having Issues Ever Since. The First Few Days The Check Engine Light Came On. 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. I Told Them To Plug The Tire And I Left. All These Issues With 5 Weeks Of Having This Car. Unbelievable.

My 2014 ford escape Titanium Has A Malfunction Of The Hvac Actuating Assembly. My Local Mechanic Diagnosed The Problem And Referred Me To Tsb 17-0004 (jan. 13, 2017) And Said That I Should Take My Car To The Dealership. Three Local ford Dealerships Told Me This Expensive Repair Was Not Covered By The Manufacturer Since The Car Was Outside Of Normal Warranty. The Vehicle Has No Blowing Heat Due To The Malfunctioning Actuating Assembly And Related Components. The Defrost Does Not Work And Creates A Hazard In Cold Weather. You Can Not Drive The Vehicle Safely With The Windshield Fogged Or Iced Up. Since This Is A Safety Issue ford Should Cover The Repair And Tsb 17-0004 Should Be Updated Accordingly.

Mileage was 129000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU9J93EU. Ford Escape 2017 problem was reported in CENTER TUFTONBORO, NH. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

The First Time This Happened Which Was Approximately Early Feb. 2019 The Wipers Would “hit” Each Other And Get Stuck On The Windshield Until They Would Finally Retract Down To The Off Position. Dealer Replaced The Wiper Motors. After About 1 – 1 1/2 Weeks Later The Same Thing Happened. Took Vehicle Back To The Dealer Where They Adjusted The Alignment Of The Wipers And Tightening A Nut In The Intermittent Wiper Switch. On 3/23/19 The Wipers Again Got “stuck” In An Upright Position On The Windshield And “stuttered” Very Slowly On The Windshield Until They Finally Retracted Down Into The Off Position. The First Incident The Vehicle Was In A Stationary Position Warming Up In The Driveway. The Second Incident Happened While The Vehicle Was Moving In A Heavy Rain On A City Street. The 3rd Incident Happened Again While The Vehicle Was Stationary.

We Were Involved In A Car Accident On A Highway When I Was Making A Left Turn And A Car Came Up And Hit The Left Front Wheel Well And Ending Up Tearing Off The Front Of The Car. As Our Car Came To A Stop The Driver’s Side seat Belt Kept Tightening And My Abdomen Started To Be Pushed Up Into My Diaphragm And Was Causing Me To Have Problems With My Breathing And So At First The Belt Did Not Want To Release So Pushed The Release A Couple Of Times And Finally It Released. Two Other Passengers, Their seat Belts Did Not Respond The Same Way. If I Had Been Unconscious Would The Belt Have Continued To Close Off My Breathing Until I Expired? I Do Have Pictures Of The Vehicle And Roadway If You Need Any Information From Them.
