The 2.0 Ecoboost Engine In My 2017 escape Has Stalled Twice At Low Speeds. On 6/18/17 While Backing Out Of My Driveway, The Vehicle Moved Approximately Six Feet And The Engine Stalled In Reverse. On 6/24/17 The escape Stalled In A Shopping Center Parking Lot. The Suv Was In Drive, Moved About Ten Feet, And Stalled. After Both Incidents, I Took The escape To ford Dealers For The Mechanics To Look For The Cause Of The Stalling. The Dealerships Can Not Find The Problem And My Vehicle Is Not Fixed. Thankfully Stalling Hasn’t Occurred At Highway Speeds, But If It Does I Dread The Thought Of Trying To Bring The Vehicle Under Control Without Any Power Steering Or Brakes. There Have Been No Accidents Or Injuries As Of Today.

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.

Suv Regularly Overheats When Accelerating Up Hill In Warm Weather. The Suv Was Purchased With The Largest Engine Because We Live In The Mountains In Warm California. When Car Overheats Power Is Lost And We Lose The Ability To Accelerate In An Emergency Safety Condition. The Car Also Runs Rough And Jerks Once It Cools Down And Power Regains. The Manufacturer Has Been Contacted And Even Though They Have Been Able To Pull Codes Verifying The Problem Have Not Fixed It (or Even Attempted To Fix It Each Time It Is Brought In. The Car Has A 3500 Pound Trailer Rating. If A Trailer Was Attached We Would Be On The Side Of The Road In Dangerous Weather. Very Unhappy With My $36,000 Car With Less Than 17,000 Miles On It.

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.

I Turned From The Parking Lot Intersection In Eagle Run Shopping Center, Nw Of Wendy’s, From West To South Onto The Parking Lot Road That Accesses The W Maple Rd & Birch St Intersection. I Completed My Turn And Drove South Down The Parking Lot Access Road To The W Maple & Birch St Intersection Where The Traffic Light Was Red. I Came To A Complete Stop To Wait For A Green Light. I Stopped A Ways Back From The Median Curb Of The Intersection To Allow For Turning Traffic From The West. Shortly Later, While Waiting For The Light To Change, I Noticed A Vibration Of The Car And Looked At The Tachometer Which Showed 1,200 Rpm & Rising (600rpm Is Normal). Immediately The Car Began To Physically Lunge Forward With Increased Engine Noise So I Instinctively Placed More Pressure On The Brake Pedal Which Had No Affect. The Car’s Engine Was Now Racing Wide Open & I Had No Control Of The Car’s Rapidly Increasing Forward Motion. At This Point, To Avoid A Catastrophic Accident By Being Pulled Into Traffic At The Intersection, I Steered To The Right Towards The Shoulder Hitting The Traffic Light Pole With The Brake Applied The Entire Time.

As My Boyfriend Was Turning The Corner At An Intersection, The Engine Suddenly Stopped. He Was Able To Stop Due To His Low Speed. I Reminded Him To Put His Foot On The Brake To Restart, And He Did That And It Started Right Up. He Didn’t Do Anything To Make The Engine Stop. The Only Thing That Was Happening At That Time Was That A Text Was Coming In On My Samsung Phone, Which Was Charging And Connected Via Bluetooth.

A Month Ago I Had A Check Engine Light That Came On. It Ran Really Rough And Felt Like I Was Going Over Rocks The Way The Suv Was Running. On My Phone I Had An App That Said There Was A Misfire. They Fixed It Saying They Replaced Some Wires. A Week Ago The Check Engine Came On Again. I Felt A Bit Of A Jolt Coming From The Engine As I Was Driving Home From Work. I Didnt Find Time Til 2 Weeks Later Because Of My Schedule.so I Took It To A ford Dealership To Get It Fixed. On My Way There, The Coolant Level Went High And I Had Another Misfire Again. I Finally Made It To The ford Dealership. They Seen The Coolant Leak And Notice The Misfire. This ford escape Is Only 11 Months Old And I Already Had 2 Misfire Situations And A Coolant Leak. I Only Go To Work And Only Did One Trip To Joshua Tree National Park. It Has 23,000 Miles Only Because I Had To Travel 30 Miles To Work One Way. I Feel Like This Is A Lemon Seeing How This Is The Second Time For The Same Problem.

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.

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.

The Stall / Start Has Failed Twice In One Week. The First Occurrence: While Coming To A Complete Stop, At A Four Way Stop Intersection With In The City, The Vehicle Went Into The Stall Mode. When I Removed My Foot From The Brake The Vehicle Would Not Restart. I Had To Put The Vehicle Into Park And Restart The Car. The Second Occurrence: While Sitting At A Red Traffic Light On A Busy City Street The Vehicle Went Into Stall Mode. When The Traffic Light Changed, I Took My Foot Off The Brake But The Vehicle Did Not Restart And Again I Had To Put The Vehicle Into Park And Restart The Vehicle. Both Times There Were Other Vehicles Present Causing A Potentially Hazardous Situation For Me And Other Drivers On The Roadway.

While Stopped At A Red Light At A Busy Intersection, The Automatic Start Stop Feature Shut Off The Engine, However, When The Brake Was Released The Engine Did Not Restart. A Message Flashed Giving Directions To Put The Vehicle In Park And Restart The Engine Manually. That Worked But A Few Days Later The Engine Shut Off While Cruising On A City Street And Displayed The Same Message. After Putting The Vehicle In Park And Restarting, The Start/stop Feature Did Not Work At All. Turning The Car Off And Restarting It Did Not Reset The Automatic Feature. The On Off Switch Did Not Restart The Feature And The System Information Display Stated That All Systems Were Functioning Normally. It Took A Visit To A ford Dealership Who Ran A Diagnostic To Then Reset The System. The Dealership Did Not Offer Any Information On Why This Happened Or If It Could Happen Again.

I Called The Dealership About This (suburban In Sterling Heights, Mi) And The Service Advisor Indicated That This Is A Known Issue With The escapes And That I Can Come In For A Software Flash That Will Take A Few Hours To Fix. Just Wondering If This Would Be A Safety Recall? The Service Advisor Said That He Has Seen Several Of These Situations Come In For Repair. Shouldn’t ford Be Contacting Their Customers If This Is A Known Issue? The Vehicle Stopped When I Was In Traffic And At A Dead Stop, And Also, Turned Off At A Red Light, And When Turned Green, I Had To Turn Off Car And Restart. It Has Been Very Scary.

When The Light Came On, At The Next Opportunity I Checked The Coolant Level And It Was Below The Minimum Mark. Coolant Oem Red Was Added And After 3 Days Of Driving I Checked The Level Again And It Was Below Coolant Minimum Level. I Have Noticed Recalls On escape Vehicles In The Past Regarding The Same Situation However Nothing Has Been Sent Out Regarding The 2017 Models. A Recall Should Be Started Since This Can Severly Affect The Vehicle In A Damaging Way. The Vehicle Was Driving In Local Traffic When The Light Came On Approximately Five Minutes Into The Drive. The Dealership Should Have Brought It To My Attention If It Was Not At The Proper Fill Mark And It Is A Known Issue. I Will Be Contacting The Dealership To See What Can Be Done To Remedy The Issue.

I Could Maintain A Speed Of About 50mph Without The Shaking. I Thought Maybe The Air Conditioning Had Malfunctioned And Was Taking Too Much Power From The Engine So I Turned It Off, But That Didn’t Help The Issue. My Check Engine Light Was Blinking On And Off. It Was Very Scary. Its Happened Twice. But There Was No Indication On My App That Anything Happened Except For A Misfire? Either Way Very Scary On The Highway When You’re With Your 3 Year Old.

When Stopped At Stop Sign The Vehicle Will Completely Shut Down And You Have To Shift Vehicle Into Park And Restart. This Happens When You Take You Foot Off The Brake And The Engine Is Supposed To Restart But Doesn?t. Typically It Is Very Confusing For Driver And Other Cars Are Expecting You To Continue Through Intersection But You Can?t Because You Have To Restart. Can Lead To Potentially Putting In Reverse Instead Of Normal Driving Causing Accident.

When Pulling Out Onto A Busy Highway, The Check Engine Light And Safety Information Notification Popped Up Stating The Engine Was At An Unsafe Temperature And To Safely Park Right Away. The Engine Then Began To Stutter And Shut Down Within Seconds. The Car Had Just Been Started Only Minutes Before And The Engine Temperature Was Not Hot. We Added Coolant To The “max” And The Car Cranked Up And Ran Okay. The Next Morning, Upon Starting The Car The Safety Notification Popped Up In The Dashboard Immediately And The Engine Did The Same Thing.

As An Update To My Previous Complaint, The Car Has Now Been In The Shop At ford Twice. The First Time, The “fixed” The Issue On The Same Day- They Replaced A Sensor That They Said Was Bad And That We Should Have No More Problems. The Next Morning, The Same Overheating Message Appeared And Then Again Later That Day. Got Car Immediately To The Same ford Dealership. It Has Been One Week Since Dropping It Off. The First Day, The Service Advisor Called And Said They Had To Reach Out To ford Technicians Because They Had No Idea What Else It Could Be Besides The Sensor. Today, We Received A Call From ford And Was Told They Have Not Been Able To Duplicate The Problem. Supposedly One Of The Technicians Has Driven The Car 30 Miles And Has Had No Issues. We Have Multiple Videos And Shared Them Via Text With The Service Advisor That Showed The Message We Were Receiving. This Has Happened 3 Times Now, In Traffic While Trying To Accelerate, The “high Engine Temperature Stop Safely” Suddenly Appears And The Engine Basically Shuts Down, Leaving You Unable To Stop Safely At All.

Also A Loud Clunk When Reversing More Than 3 Ft. Also Info Panel Stated That An Oil Change Was Needed. Called Dealer As Had 2000 More Miles To Go Before The Next Scheduled Oil Change. Was Told To Ignore Info Screen And Keep Original Oil Change Schedule. 4 To 5 Days Later The Check Engine Light Came On And Took Car To Dealer. Dealer Stated That The Head Gasket Is Leaking Antifreeze Into The Cylinders And Motor Needs To Be Replaced. Under Warranty And Was Promised To Have It Fixed By Mid July, 2019. Now Dealer States It Could Be Much Later Than That. I Had To Call ford Corporation Customer Service To Get Any Type Of Replacement Vehicle As Dealer States He Doesn’t Have Anything Available (probably Due To Backlog Of escape Blown Head Gaskets).

I Was The Owner Of A 2017 ford escape With Under 27000 Miles. On 7/16/19, It Had Been Parked For 6 Hours At My Place And I Was Awoken At 12:30 Am By Fire/police That My Car Was On Fire. The Fire Started Under The Passenger Hood Area. The Car Is A Total Loss And Fire Dept Determined It Was An Electrical Fire. Still Waiting On The Actual Cause Of The Electrical Fire. I’m Just Glad That I Was Not In The Vehicle Or Had Anyone With Me When The Fire Started. This Is The Secondary Car I Have Gotten From Sam Pack’s 5 Star ford In Carrollton. The First Car I Purchased From That Dealership Was A 2015 ford escape Pre-certified Used But After A Few Months With Issues, It Turned Out To Be Part Of An Insurance Flood Scam And Was Not Looked Over For It Be Certified Used. They Put Me In A New 2017 ford escape Which Has Now Burned Up. I Have Nothing From This Whole Situation. I Have Also Called ford Customer Relations And Got A Case Number And Was Told Someone Would Be Contacting Me. Still Have Not Hear Back From ford And That Was Over 2 Weeks Ago. This Seems To Be Bad Business And There Could Be A Potential Serious Defect With The Car That Could Affect Other Consumers. At This Point No One Seems To Know Why/how The Parked Car Caught Fire. I Have Attached Pictures Of The Car

Chime Volume Level When Power Lift Gate Is Opening Or Closing Is Very Low. This Has Resulted In The Foot Activated Open/close Being Activated Unintentionally And The Lift Gate Coming Down On My Head, Resulting In A Bruise And Bump From The Latch. This Complaint Has Been Addressed By The Dealer And ford Management. The Vehicle Has Been Returned To The Dealer On Three Occasions For Repair With No Satisfactory Results. I Think The Volume Level Should Be Increased So It Can Be Heard When The Lift Gate Is Going Up Or Down To Prevent Further Injury. Thank You.

It Was So Quiet I Did Not Hear It, And When I Stood Up (i’m 5ft 1-77 Yr Old Female, I Stood Straight Up And My Head Banged Into The Lid Which Was On Its Way Down. The Force Of It Hitting My Head Caused It To Start Ascending Back Up. I Later Went To Emergency Room Because Of My Head Bruise And Pain. Scan Revealed No Internal Bleed But Was Advised To Treat It Like A Concussion. I Should Not Have To Pay These Emergency Room Bills For A Defect And Now I’m Paranoid About The Lid. With All The Beeps On These Cars, The Lid Definitely Needs A Warning When It Is Coming Down.

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 Research And Speaking With Our Mechanic, We Believe The Coolant Temperature Sensor Is Bad.

My escape Has The Lift Gate That Opens Automatically With The Wave Of A Foot. A Few Months Ago (dec. 2018 I Think) I Was Loading My Groceries Into The Back Of The Vehicle When Unexpectedly, The Lift Gate Crashed Down On My Head And Then Continued To Close. I Had To Drop To The Ground To Keep It From Closing On Me Because It Wouldn’t Stop. It Hurt Terribly But I Didn’t Feel It Necessary To Go The Er. I Called ford And A Report Was Taken And I Was Told To Take It To A Dealer Service Department But I Wasn’t Able To Take It In At The Time. Last Week, I Was Again At The Grocery Store And A Young Man Was Loading My Groceries While I Stood And Watched. Fortunately, I Saw It Coming This Time Before The Lift Gate Crashed Down On His Head And I Was Able To Push The Button On The Lift Gate To Stop It. I Knew I Had To Deal With It Then. I Have A Two Year Old Grandson Who Could Be Decapitated If It Closed On Him. Yesterday, I Took My Car To The Dealer I Bought It From And Just Heard From The Service Department. Turns Out When A Foot Is Detected By The Sensor; If The Lift Gate Is Open, It Causes It To Close. There Is No Sensor To Make It Stop If There’s A Body In The Way. Per My Service Man, There’s No Way To Disable The Feature. It Is Unacceptable To Have A Lift Gate That Can Come Down Unexpectedly And Crush Or Decapitate Anyone Who Happens To Be Standing Under It. This Is A Major Design Flaw That Has Already Hurt Me And Has The Potential To Be Deadly To My Grandchild. I Had Really Liked This Car Til I Realized What A Hazard The Lift Gate Is. I Hope You Can Remedy This Problem For Us All Before Serious Injury Occurs.

As An Update To My Previous Complaint, The Car Has Now Been In The Shop At ford Twice. The First Time, The “fixed” The Issue On The Same Day- They Replaced A Sensor That They Said Was Bad And That We Should Have No More Problems. The Next Morning, The Same Overheating Message Appeared And Then Again Later That Day. Got Car Immediately To The Same ford Dealership. It Has Been One Week Since Dropping It Off. The First Day, The Service Advisor Called And Said They Had To Reach Out To ford Technicians Because They Had No Idea What Else It Could Be Besides The Sensor. Today, We Received A Call From ford And Was Told They Have Not Been Able To Duplicate The Problem. Supposedly One Of The Technicians Has Driven The Car 30 Miles And Has Had No Issues. We Have Multiple Videos And Shared Them Via Text With The Service Advisor That Showed The Message We Were Receiving. This Has Happened 3 Times Now, In Traffic While Trying To Accelerate, The “high Engine Temperature Stop Safely” Suddenly Appears And The Engine Basically Shuts Down, Leaving You Unable To Stop Safely At All.

Around 4-6 Times In The Past 8 Months The Car Stalls Out When I Am At A Complete Stop. It Flashes A Message To Restart The Car. Each Time This Happened I Put The Car In Park And Restarted The Engine. This Has So Far Been Effective. I Reported This To The Dealership But They Told Me There Was Nothing They Could Do Since They Could Not Replicate The Problem. I Attached A Picture Of The Restart Message.

I Was The Owner Of A 2017 ford escape With Under 27000 Miles. On 7/16/19, It Had Been Parked For 6 Hours At My Place And I Was Awoken At 12:30 Am By Fire/police That My Car Was On Fire. The Fire Started Under The Passenger Hood Area. The Car Is A Total Loss And Fire Dept Determined It Was An electrical Fire. Still Waiting On The Actual Cause Of The electrical Fire. I’m Just Glad That I Was Not In The Vehicle Or Had Anyone With Me When The Fire Started. This Is The Secondary Car I Have Gotten From Sam Pack’s 5 Star ford In Carrollton. The First Car I Purchased From That Dealership Was A 2015 ford escape Pre-certified Used But After A Few Months With Issues, It Turned Out To Be Part Of An Insurance Flood Scam And Was Not Looked Over For It Be Certified Used. They Put Me In A New 2017 ford escape Which Has Now Burned Up. I Have Nothing From This Whole Situation. I Have Also Called ford Customer Relations And Got A Case Number And Was Told Someone Would Be Contacting Me. Still Have Not Hear Back From ford And That Was Over 2 Weeks Ago. This Seems To Be Bad Business And There Could Be A Potential Serious Defect With The Car That Could Affect Other Consumers. At This Point No One Seems To Know Why/how The Parked Car Caught Fire. I Have Attached Pictures Of The Car

There’s Wheels Undercarroage Is Rusted And Within 4 Months. I Live In A State That Isn’t In The Rust Belt. I Saw Recalls For The ford escape In The Rust Belt For The Same Problem. It Appears Some Of The Vehicles Outside Of The Rust Belt Have The Same Issue And It Is A Safety Concern. When Driving The Car Is Making A Crunching Noise And Vibrates. In Reverse The Grinding Noise Increases. Dealership Said ford Motor Company Designed It To Rust And Called It “engineered Rusting”. Dealership And ford Both Said They Will Not Address The Defect. This So The Same Issue On A Recall In The Rust Belt. I’m Not Inna Rust Belt Yet We Have The Issue And No One Finds It A Safety Issue.

I Was Driving My 2017 ford escape Titanium And Stopped At A Stop Sign One Block From My House. I Was On A Residential Street. As I Started To Go, My Car Stalled. I Put It In Park And Tried Starting It Again. Immediately I Noticed Smoke Coming From The Hood. I Jumped Out Of The Car And Immediately Called 911. A Passer By Brought A Fire Extinguisher And I Called My Husband And He Showed Up. They Both Tried To Put Fire Out. They Could Not Get The Hood Latch Open And Couldn’t Get Through The Side Walls To Put The Fire Out. The Fire Department Showed Up And The Car Was Engulfed In Flames. I Have No Idea What Caused This To Happen.

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.

During The Fires In Ca From 2017 &again 2018 I’ve Logged Complaints With ford About The Potential Health Hazard With Their Configuration Of The Recycled Air Feature. The Only Known Way To Keep The Vents Closed Is To Turn Off The Air, Have The Air On “lo” Or Ha E The Ac On. After 15 Minutes Of Air On Without The Two Selected Above The Vents Open Back Up After 15min. With The Air Quality Being Bad I Kept Getting A Mouth Full Of Toxic Air. I’m Hoping Someone Can Update The Vehicle To Leave The Cycled Air On Without Forcing The Driver To Actively Press The Recycled Air Every 15min Or Remember To Press This Button Immediately After Starting Your Car Everytime.

When Accelerating On The Highway My Vehicle Started Shaking Uncontrollably. It Felt Like The Engine Was Failing. I Was Unable To Accelerate Without It Shaking. I Could Maintain A Speed Of About 50mph Without The Shaking. I Thought Maybe The Air Conditioning Had Malfunctioned And Was Taking Too Much Power From The Engine So I Turned It Off, But That Didn’t Help The Issue. My Check Engine Light Was Blinking On And Off. It Was Very Scary. Its Happened Twice. But There Was No Indication On My App That Anything Happened Except For A Misfire? Either Way Very Scary On The Highway When You’re With Your 3 Year Old.

ford escape Has Power Assist Tailgate Feature Which Opens And Closes Tailgate. Additional Feature Includes Sensor Under Rear Bumper Which Detects Foot Movement, Then Opens, Or Closes The Tailgate, Affording Operator The Ability To Open, Or Close Tailgate By Moving Foot Across Visual Path Of Sensor. Tailgate Has Propensity To Close From Open Position While Loading Or Unloading Rear Cargo Area. Although Tailgate Will Stop When It Encounters Resistance, As In A Person Standing Behind Vehicle, A Person With Hands Full And Turning Away From Vehicle At Same Time, Can Hit Their Head On Closing Tailgate. This Has Happened To Me Several Times, Including On April 11, 2017, Resulting In A Serious Gash Across My Forehead. Older Individuals Should Be Warned Of The Possibility Of Tailgate Sensor Detecting Foot Movement And Activating Tailgate Closure While Person Is Loading Or Unloading Cargo Area. Turning Unexpectedly And Striking Head On Edge Of Tailgate Generates Force Strong Enough To Knock An Older Person Down, Resulting In Further Injury. Vehicle Is Stationary When Encountering This Issue.

This Week When I Took It In They Said There Was Nothing Loose But The Mechanic Said That When It Heats Up The Underpinning Will Sag And Catch Air While Driving.

At Higher Rates Of Speed (on The Highway) It Is A Very Noticeable Issue. For People Not Expecting The Knocking/banking On Your Feet It Is Quite Unsettling.

The Rear Liftgate Is Powered And Can Be Activated By Passing A Foot Under The Bumper, Triggering A Sensor To Open Or Close It. On Two Separate Occasions, When Loading Groceries Into The Rear Of The Vehicle, My Foot Inadvertently Passed Under The Bumper, Triggering The Liftgate To Close And Forcefully Hitting Me In The Head And Neck, Injuring Me. On Both Occasions, Once Making Contact With Me, The Liftgate Continued Pushing Down While I Scrambled To Hold It From Closing And Move Myself Out Of The Way. It Did Not Automatically Lift Off Of Me When It Came Into Contact With My Body. I Am A Grown Man. If This Happened To A Teen, Child, Or Person Of Small Stature, Significant Injury Could Occur As The Liftgate Continues To Forcefully Close. If This Is The Correct Action Of The Function, It Is Flawed Design. If It Should Lift Off After Making Contact With Something, It Is Malfunctioning.

As An Update To My Previous Complaint, The Car Has Now Been In The Shop At ford Twice. The First Time, The “fixed” The Issue On The Same Day- They Replaced A Sensor That They Said Was Bad And That We Should Have No More Problems. The Next Morning, The Same Overheating Message Appeared And Then Again Later That Day. Got Car Immediately To The Same ford Dealership. It Has Been One Week Since Dropping It Off. The First Day, The Service Advisor Called And Said They Had To Reach Out To ford Technicians Because They Had No Idea What Else It Could Be Besides The Sensor. Today, We Received A Call From ford And Was Told They Have Not Been Able To Duplicate The Problem. Supposedly One Of The Technicians Has Driven The Car 30 Miles And Has Had No Issues. We Have Multiple Videos And Shared Them Via Text With The Service Advisor That Showed The Message We Were Receiving. This Has Happened 3 Times Now, In Traffic While Trying To Accelerate, The “high Engine Temperature Stop Safely” Suddenly Appears And The Engine Basically Shuts Down, Leaving You Unable To Stop Safely At All.

I Was The Owner Of A 2017 ford escape With Under 27000 Miles. On 7/16/19, It Had Been Parked For 6 Hours At My Place And I Was Awoken At 12:30 Am By Fire/police That My Car Was On Fire. The Fire Started Under The Passenger Hood Area. The Car Is A Total Loss And Fire Dept Determined It Was An Electrical Fire. Still Waiting On The Actual Cause Of The Electrical Fire. I’m Just Glad That I Was Not In The Vehicle Or Had Anyone With Me When The Fire Started. This Is The Secondary Car I Have Gotten From Sam Pack’s 5 Star ford In Carrollton. The First Car I Purchased From That Dealership Was A 2015 ford escape Pre-certified Used But After A Few Months With Issues, It Turned Out To Be Part Of An Insurance Flood Scam And Was Not Looked Over For It Be Certified Used. They Put Me In A New 2017 ford escape Which Has Now Burned Up. I Have Nothing From This Whole Situation. I Have Also Called ford Customer Relations And Got A Case Number And Was Told Someone Would Be Contacting Me. Still Have Not Hear Back From ford And That Was Over 2 Weeks Ago. This Seems To Be Bad Business And There Could Be A Potential Serious Defect With The Car That Could Affect Other Consumers. At This Point No One Seems To Know Why/how The Parked Car Caught Fire. I Have Attached Pictures Of The Car

Have New 2017 ford escape 1.5 Ecoboost Se 4wd. Only 800 Miles On The Car. When Turning Tight Turns, Hearing A Loud Grinding Sound From Rear Of Vehicle That Is Not Present When Test Driving Other New 2017 escapes On The Lot With 4wd. Only Does It From A Stop And Barely Moving, Then Sound Goes Away. Called ford Detroit, They Said It Was Normal. Went To 3 Different Dealerships, Said The Same Thing. Have A Friend Who Got The Same Car But Different Color. Has 1000 Miles On His And It Does Not Make This Noise. Sounds Like Axle Binding And Wheel Hop But Not Feeling Good About This Since The Noise Is Not Being Duplicated In Other Cars Like Mine.

Model Has Transmission That Has No Provision To Override Automatic Transmission Allowing Engagement Of Lower Gears To Utilizing Engine Braking. This Ability Is Essential For Safe Mountain Driving Where Downhill Grades, Including Sharp Curves, Go On For Miles. Full Dependence On Wheel Brakes, Which Will Overheat, Is A Safety Issue. Co-efficient Of Friction Decreases With Increasing Brake Pad Temperatures. Having Driven This Make/model As A Rental For ~2,500 Miles In The Mountainous States Of Az, Ut, And Co I Speak From First Hand Experience. As A Retired Engineer From The U.s. Dept. Of Energy I Ask Please Look Into This As A Design Safety Issue.

Suv Regularly Overheats When Accelerating Up Hill In Warm Weather. The Suv Was Purchased With The Largest Engine Because We Live In The Mountains In Warm California. When Car Overheats power Is Lost And We Lose The Ability To Accelerate In An Emergency Safety Condition. The Car Also Runs Rough And Jerks Once It Cools Down And power Regains. The Manufacturer Has Been Contacted And Even Though They Have Been Able To Pull Codes Verifying The Problem Have Not Fixed It (or Even Attempted To Fix It Each Time It Is Brought In. The Car Has A 3500 Pound Trailer Rating. If A Trailer Was Attached We Would Be On The Side Of The Road In Dangerous Weather. Very Unhappy With My $36,000 Car With Less Than 17,000 Miles On It.

I Bought This 2017 ford escape Se Ecoboost 4wd In February, And Since Then Every Time I Change Gears From Park To Reverse, I Hear A Rough ‘thud’ Noise From The Rear. I Only Happens When I Go In Reverse And It Never Happens While The escape Is In Drive While In Motion. It Happens Often Hearing A Hard Knock When Going In Reverse. Since This Is A 4wd escape, Im Thinking Its Coming From The Rear Differential When The Rear Wheels Are ‘kicked’ Into Gear Using The Rear Wheels power To Pull It In Reverse. It Does Have ‘intelligent 4wd’ Where When The escape Is Driving On Normal Roads, The Front Wheels Are Only Active, But Then All Four Wheels Are Activated When Going On Rougher Roads. I Have Done Research About This And Other Owners From 2017 With 4wd Have Been Having This Problem To An Uncertain End Not Knowing If This Is Going To Damage The escape In A Few Years Or In A Year…basically The ford escape I Have Makes A Hard Rough Thud Noise When Going Into Reverse Thinking Its A Defect. I Have Contacted ford Through Their Facebook Page And They Said They Did Not Find Any Recalls On It, But It Is Still Is A Real Problem For Me And Other ford escape 4wd Owners. Please Figure This Out. Thank You.

A Month Ago I Had A Check Engine Light That Came On. It Ran Really Rough And Felt Like I Was Going Over Rocks The Way The Suv Was Running. On My Phone I Had An App That Said There Was A Misfire. They Fixed It Saying They Replaced Some Wires. A Week Ago The Check Engine Came On Again. I Felt A Bit Of A Jolt Coming From The Engine As I Was Driving Home From Work. I Didnt Find Time Til 2 Weeks Later Because Of My Schedule.so I Took It To A ford Dealership To Get It Fixed. On My Way There, The Coolant Level Went High And I Had Another Misfire Again. I Finally Made It To The ford Dealership. They Seen The Coolant Leak And Notice The Misfire. This ford escape Is Only 11 Months Old And I Already Had 2 Misfire Situations And A Coolant Leak. I Only Go To Work And Only Did One Trip To Joshua Tree National Park. It Has 23,000 Miles Only Because I Had To Travel 30 Miles To Work One Way.

The System Message “transmission Fault Service Now” Came Up And The Car Would Not Accelerate Beyond 20 Mph. I Was Traveling So It Was Towed To Nearest Dealership. They Cleared The Fault And Sid There Was Nothing Wrong. Took It To Dealership Where I Bought It, They Had It Two Weeks And Said They Couldn’t Find/replicate The Issue And Gave It Back. I Drove It Two Days And It Occured Again. Drove It To The Dealer This Way. They Said It Was A Bad Ecm, Replaced It And They Replcated The Issue On Their Test Drive After The “repair”. Said They Need To Call ford For Tech Assistance. They Have Had My Car For ~month And A Half.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Open The Liftgate With Hands Free To Load Groceries Into Car. As I Load From Cart To Trunk The Liftgate Will Automatically Begin To Close Hitting Me On The Head. After Getting Hit It Startles Me So Much Not Sure If It Goes Back Up From The Hitting Motion Or Me Pushing It Or I Have Reached For The Button To Open It. But It Does Go Back Up And I Have Not Been Trapped Just Banged On The Head Or Shoulders. There Is A Very Quiet Beeping Sound However In A Parking Lot It Is Too Quiet To Hear. I Asked At The Dealer If It Was Possible To Make This Louder Or A Problem With Something I’m Doing Or A Sensor And They Could Not Help Me. I Have Only Owned The Car About 6 Months And This Has Happened Numerous Times. The Car Is Not Running It’s In Park In A Lot And The Key Fob Is In Purse Or Pocket. I Am Moving Around However To Open The Liftgate You Do Have To Swing The Foot Somewhat Under To Get It To Open. I Have Been Careful Where My Feet Are To Try And Make Sure That I Am Not Effecting It To Close. I Like The Hands Free Feature Or I Would Disable It But I Don’t Like Getting Hit In The Head.

My 2017 ford escape With 18,000 Had A Master Brake Cylinder Failure At 18,000 Miles. The Car Was Parked Outside Over Night In Single Digit Temperatures. When I Started To Drive It The Next Day On A Residential Street The Brake Pedal Went To The Floor The First Time I Applied The Brakes At A Stop Sign. The Brakes Engaged , But Not Very Well. The Problem Did Not Go Away After Trying Several More Brake Applications, Or By Pumping The Brake Pedal. There Was No Indication From The Car’s Warning Systems That There Was Any Problem With The Brake System. The ford Pass App On My Phone Didn’t Report Any Problem Either. The Total Lack Of Warning Is A Real Concern. The Problem Did Not Go Away After The Car Was Parked In A Warmer Garage. I Took The Car To The Dealer And They Confirmed The Problem Was A Failed Master Brake Cylinder. They Couldn’t Tell Me What Caused The Failure Or What Failed. They Did Say The Faulty Brake Cylinder Would Be Sent To ford For Analysis. This Brake System Failure Is A Real Concern. In Over 50 Years Of Driving I Have Never Had A Brake Master Cylinder Fail On A Car With Such Low Miles. Without Knowing Why It Failed I Am Concerned That It Could Happen Again With The Replacement Brake Master Cylinder. Next Time It Could Happen As I Am Driving The Car At Higher Speed, Or In Traffic Resulting In An Accident. This Type Of Brake System Failure Should Not Happen On Any Newer Car, And The Car’s Warning Systems Should Be Able Let You Know There Is A Problem With Any Part Of The Brake System.

I Want To Report A Sporadic Loss Of The Power Assist For The Brakes Making The Car Unsafe To Drive.

It Happens Going Both Forward And In Reverse. When I Back The Car With A Cold Engine And High Idle, Down The Driveway, It Is Almost Impossible To Stop The Car.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
