The Front Driver Side Wheel When Backing Squeals Every Tijme And Every Day Ssince We Had The Car. Here It Is July Almost Aug. Had Brought The Car In To The Dealer Once In March And Again For The Same Thing Last Week Friday. They Tell Me And My Wife That They Can Not Get It To Do It At The Dealer. My Wife And I Was Sitting In My Other escape Getting Ready To Leave When They Backed It Up And Both My Wife And I Heard It From My Car And They Say They Can Not Duplicate The Problem? Bold Lie. They Say The Squeal Is Also Normal That Is Another Bold Lie. They Just Do Not Want To Replace The Pads On T He Car A $44 Dollar Item To Satisfy A Customer From Hearing That Horidous Noise Everyday.

This Isn’t Pertaining To My Vehicle, But This Is Rather A Complaint About The Current Brake Light Styling Trends In Most Newer Vehicles (not Just The ford escape, But I’ve Also Seen It In Other Make/model Vehicles As Well). The Issue Is The Brake Lights Should Be Noticeable And Distinguishable When The Brakes Are Engaged, But In The Case Of The ford escape (and Several Other Vehicles), The Brake Lights Are A Simple Strip Of What I Presume Are Led Lights That Are Very Dim And Hard To Tell That They Are Lit (except Maybe At Night), Especially When The Body Vehicle Is Similarly Red In Color. I Almost Hit One The ford escape Because I Could Not Tell (until I Was Up Close And Was Then Able To See That The Thin Band Of Barely Lit Lights Were Actually Lit), And Only Realized They Were Braking Due To The Relative Speeds Of Nearby Vehicles. These New “styles” For The Brake Lights Should Be Looked At As I Believe They Pose A Safety Hazard Rather Than Being A Safety Feature.

Warning On Screen. Take Car To Dealer Immediately. I Took The Car To Tye Dealer And After Sitting There For Over 3 Hours I Was Told The Issue Was The Cooling Temperature Sensor. When They Came To Tell Me The Car Was Finished I Was Told They Did Not Do Anything But Unplug The Sonsor And Wait 5 Minutes The Reconnect To Clear The Code. Since Then The Car Takes A Long Time To Heat Up For The Heater. It Will Blow Cold Air. I Am Disappointed With This Car. I Should Not Have Had To Wait Over 3 Hours At The Dealer Either For Just Unplugging The Sensor. Not A Good Way To Keep Customers.

Started Car And The Alarm Went Off On The Dash Saying The Front Passenger Door Was Ajar. We Opened The Door And Looked At The Door To Make Sure No One Had Hit The Car. No Damage Could Be Found. Shut Car Off And Restarted. Alarm Continued With Dash Reading Front Passenger Door Ajar. Drove Car Home With Constant Alarm And Over Head Light On. Let Car Sit In Driveway For Hours To See If Something Would Reset. It Did Not Work. Unplugged Battery And Let Car Sit Another 30 Minutes. Did Not Reset. Tomorrow The Car Goes Back To The Dealership Again To Fix This Problem. I Am Very Disappointed With The New 2015 ford escape Titanium 4 Wheel Drive 1.6 Only 1069 Miles And I Am Having Lemon Issues!
