Weird Burn Marks Have Appeared On The Top Of My Muffler. I Bought The Car On March 15th, 2019. I First Noticed It On April 21st, 2019 (see Car Doc 2 Photo). I Took It In To Have It Looked At On May 8th, When It Was Determined It Was Just A Cosmetic Problem. It Was Replaced On May 15th. Today, May 24th, 2019, I Looked At It And Saw The Same Problem Starting Again (see Car Doc 3 Photo). A Representative At The Dealership Told Me They Saw Another ecosport With The Same Issue, But No One Can Identify The Problem. I’m Growing Concerned As It Looks To Be A Burn, Or Some Kind Of Reaction With Materials. It Looks As If Something Is Dripping Onto The Muffler From Above, And That It’s Not The Muffler Itself With The Issue. I Also Attached My Service Invoice From When It Was Replaced The First Time.

Mileage was 3500 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):MAJ6S3KL3KC. Ford Ecosport 2019 problem was reported in STERLING HEIGHTS, MI. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

    we have a 2019 echo sport and ours uses oil, if we go on a trip af 100 miles or more the car will use a quart of oil, there have been a couple of times when I have had to pull over and stop because the engine started knocking, I put oil in it, one time it was 3 1/2 quarts low and knocking pretty loud, the ford dealership told me that engine was expected to burn 1 quart of oil every thousand mies, I think that is a bit excessive, wife loves the car but i have had about enough of the oil burn anytime we try to go for a ride in it..

    We have a 2020 EcoSport with around 4000 miles with the 2.0 L engine and AWD. So far pretty happy with it except for the lazy trans which doesn’t downshift as fast as I would like. You really have to mash the accelerator to get it to downshift. Lately I have noticed in hot weather a bit of engine surging but not sure why this is happening??
