I Leased My First New Car On January 29, 2018. Starting In April Of 2019 My Vehicle Has Failed To Start On Numerous Occasions. I Took It To The Dealership Where I Bought Iat And They Cannot Replicate The Issue. It Won’t Start When The Vehicle Is Stationary. Yesterday It Happened When I Put The Transmission In Reverse (something New). After Putting The Car In Reverse, It Stopped And The Display Said “transmission Not In Park”. This Happened Again Today. It Has Stalled And Refused To Start In My Garage, On A City Street And In A Parking Lot. It Is Very Scary – Especially When I Had My Two Grandchildren With Me.

Mileage was 9000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMCU9GD0JU. Ford Escape 2018 problem was reported in NORTHFIELD, MN. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

On Late Evening Of May13, 2019 I Was Driving My fordescape (odometer Is At 1368 Miles) On Excellent Road Conditions Along Side One Vehicle With No Other Traffic. We Just Passed Under Traffic Signal With Estimated Speed At 10-15mph. Without Warning The Left Front Wheel Buckled Under The Frame. The Sound Was Frightening And So Loud That The Driver Next To Me Heard The Incident And Turned Around At The Next Light To Come Back And Check On Me. I Skidded In My Travel Lane For Approximately 15feet.there Was No Collision, Nor Impact With Road Median Nor Did I Come In Contact With Any Debris / Potholes On Road. Immediately The Engine Shut Off Which Is One Of The Wonderful Safety Features Which Helped Base My Decision On Purchasing Of My escape. The Damage Caused Difficulty To Open Drivers Side Door,the Tire Separated From Rim In Addition To The Under Carriage Damage. I Found Similar Incidents On The ford Recall Site. There Was No Police Report Filed , Yet I Have A Claim In With My Insurance Company.$500 Deductible Unplanned Expense.

After Having Intermittent Problems With The Remote Start Not Working, I Attempted To Start The Vehicle From The ford Pass App While My Car Was Parked In An Uncovered Lot, Which Did Not Start. I Started Remotely From The Key Fob And Loaded My Infants Car Seat Into The Car, Put My Bag In The Car, And Shut The Door. After Closing The Door, I Heard The Locks Click, And The Engine Shut Off. I Was Locked Out Of My Car With My Keys And Baby Locked In And The Engine Off. I Was Able To Unlock The Car From The App Because My Phone Was In My Pocket When I Shut The Door, But Otherwise, Would Have Trapped My Newborn In A Hot Car With No Way To Unlock.

The Vehicle Started To Slow Down And Became Hot Quickly. A Warning Was Seen On The Dash That Vehicle Was Reducing Power. Within A Short Time (less Than A Mile) A Warning Stated: “pull To Safety And Stop Driving”. The Vehicle Has Been Maintained According To Schedule. When I Googled Similar Situations I Came Upon A Recall That Listed Exactly What Took Place. Https://media.ford.com/content/fordmedia/fna/us/en/news/2017/03/29/ford-issues-three-safety-recalls-and-one-safety-compliance-recal.html My Vehicle Was Manufactured In Louisville Ky During That The Time Period Listed (july 2014) And Has The Same Engine Noted In The Article. I Believe That My Vehicle Would Have Caught Fire, It Was That Hot. After It Was Towed To A ford Dealer, We Were Told That The Coolant Hose And Bottle Cracked But That It Was Not Covered Under This Recall. (my Vin Was Not Included) It Seems That My Car Is Affected By The Recall Because Of The Symptoms Of What Happened. It Was In Perfect Order Before This.

This Vehicle Should Have Been Included In A 2017 Safety Recall Related To Overheating And Coolant Leaks, But It Was Not. In February 2019, It Overheated With Little Warning On The Freeway, Blowing A Hole In The Motor (at 62k Miles). ford Rejected Request For Assistance, So Repair Was Done By Independent Mechanic (motor Replaced). Three Months Later, During Freeway Drive, Message Appeared Several Times Stating Power Was Being Cut To Keep Engine From Overheating (no Indication Engine Actually Was Overheating). Ultimately, Message Appeared Warning To Pull Off The Road Immediately. Overheated Engine Completely Melted A Bracket. Mechanic Identified A Burnt-out Sensor But Could Not Say Why It Happened. I Secured Two Dealership Diagnostics. First Conducted Comprehensive Diagnostic And Concluded A Waste Gate Was Stuck Open; No Mention Of Damaged Sensor. Second Said The Degas Bottle Was Cracked And Declined To Perform Pressure Test; No Mention Of Damaged Sensor Or Waste Gate Issue. I Cannot Afford All These Random Repairs And In Any Case, Do Not Feel This Car Can Be Put Into A Safe Condition For Driving.

I Purchased My 2014fordescape Ecoboost Brand New, Sole Owner. I Have Been Having Issues With Losing Coolant For Approx 2 Years And Taking It Back And Forth To The ford Dealer. The Dealer Ran Multiple Tests On Multiple Occasions And Found Nothing, Even Calling It “one Of Those ford Mysteries”. Today, 7/18/19 On The Way To Work, My Suv Lost The Ability To Accelerate. I Was Stopped At A Traffic Light And When The Light Changed And I Hit The Gas, My Suv Barely Moved. After Approx 10 Secs, My Suv Jerked And Accelerated To An Almost Normal Speed. That Lasted Only For A Few Seconds, When It Started To Barely Move Again. I Was Able To Drive Slowly To The Side Of The Road, Out Of Traffic. There I Waited For A Tow Truck, Who Took The Suv To The ford Dealer. I Have Gotten All My Maintenance And Oil Changes Done At The ford Dealer Since I Purchased The Car, So Of Course I’m Shocked To Hear That After Only 77,000 Miles, I Have A Transmission Failure. I’m Even More Shocked To Find Endless Complaints Online About The Same Issues And ford Has Done Nothing. I Owned My Previous Car For 13 Years, With No Major Issues. It Was Still Running When I Purchased My ford Escspe. I Can’t Afford To Pay Thousands Of Dollars To Fix A Major Issue That Shouldn’t Have Failed Within 5 Years. This Is Sad And ford Should Be Ashamed That They Are Stealing, By Putting Out Such A Poor Product To The Working Class People And Refusing To Take Accountability.

Coolant Issues Similar To Those Included In The Part 573 Safety Recall 17v-209, Though My Vehicle Was Manufactured A Few Weeks Later And Not Included In That Recall, As Well As Electrical Issues That Were Similar To Other Recalls That Didn’t Include My Vin. In June 2019, It Started With The Vehicle Not Turning On Or Shifting Out Of Park Intermittently.. Work Was Performed And Then A Week Later P0303 Cylinder Misfire.. Again Work Was Completed, The Code Came Back, And Now ford Is Recommending Replacing The Engine But Will Not Cover The Costs Due To Being 5 Years And In Excess Of 60k Miles. Took For 2nd Opinion And Ran Out Of Coolant And Overheated Less Than 5 Miles Away From ford Dealership, Even Though They Just Replaced The Coolant Overflow Tank And Filled It.. Continues Need Coolant Every Few Miles. Seems Crazy That A Vehicle That Stayed On Top Of Routine Maintenance And Has Not Been Involved In An Accident Or Excessive Conditions Would Need A New Engine At Less Than 94k Miles And Is The Consumer’s Responsibility To Foot The Bill. I’ve Already Spent Almost $3k On This Issue And ford Verbally Told Me Just The Engine Would Be Around $7-8k Without Labor. They Also Had Their Sales Department Call Me And Offer To “take A Couple Hundred Off A New Vehicle” For My Current One. Very Disheartening To Hear That When I’ve Taken Care Of The Vehicle As The Sole Owner, Less A Few Recommended Tire Rotations.

While Driving Through The City My Car Overheated To The Point Where The Engine Shut Down It Broke Down. It All Happened Within 5-10 Seconds.. I Never Had Overheating Issues With My Car. I Had It Serviced With ford For An Oil Change And They Topped Off My Fluids A Week Prior This Accident. Luckily My Car Broke Down Not Too Far Away From The Dealership So I Was Able To Get To The Dealership Service Quick. After 2 Days Later The Dealership Called Me And Told Me They Would Need To Install A Coolant Level Sensor System Kit And It Would Cost Me $1300 Plus Tax. That Happened On Friday And I Needed A Weekend To Think About It. Over The Weekend I Found Out That fordescape Has A Recall For This Exact Issue But My Vin Number Is Not Reflecting That. Upon More Research About My Vehicle I Found Out That It Was Assembled In The Factory And On The Date That The Recall States It. The Recall Number For This Issue Is 17s09. My Local ford In North Charleston , Sc Says That This Car Should Have Been Recalled For This Issue Because My Car Was Missing The Sensor That Would Have Alarmed Me If My Car Was Overheating Days Or Weeks Before.

I Was Driving And My Back Windshield Broke Loose From The Car. I Was Driving On Manchester Rd No More Than 40 Miles An Hour. Upon Checking ,one Of The Rear Hinges Had Broke And The Windshield Was Haniging By The Other Hinge. Fortunately For Myself And People Behind Me On The Highway It Held On. It Is Now Clear That The Other Hinge Is Also Rotted And I’m Very Lucky No One Was Injured. I Was Telling My Coworker Who Has The Same Year,make , And Model Car About The Incident And We Decided To Go Out And Look At Hers. Her Hinges Are Also Rotted And The Same Thing Could Have Happened To Her At Any Time. We Then Went On Line Where We Found Multiple Complaints About This Same Issue. The Following Image Is Of The Hinges. A Friend Came And Pushed The Windshield Back Up In Place As Much As Possible Because It Downpouring Into My Car. Then We Ducktaped It To Get Me Home. I Did Not Want To Let It Hang Again For The Photos Because I Am Afraid It Will Fall Of Completely. One Image Is Of My Car , The Other Of My Coworkers.

While Driving To Work, I Noticed That The ford Emblem On My Steering Wheel Was Off Center, Therefore Making My Car Out Of Alignment But I Had No Idea How This Had Happened. I Made An Appointment To Bring My Car Into Town Fair Tire To Get It Realigned But Was Told That They Couldn’t Do It Because My Engine Cradle Was Extremely Rusted So I Would Need To Have That Addressed At A Mechanic. They Also Told Me That They Pulled The Vehicle Safety Check They Did On My Vehicle From The Year Before When They Changed My Tires And There Were No Issues So This Was Very Odd To Them As Well As To How This Could’ve Happened. I Next Brought It Into My Mechanic And Was Told That In Order To Fix The Issue My Entire Front End Frame Would Need To Be Replaced. $1600 Later, My Vehicle Is Back In Line. ford Motor Company Is Claiming There Are No Recalls On My Vehicle Even Though They Did Have Recalls On The 2005 escapes For This Same Reason. I’m Lucky I Noticed And Addressed This Issue Before Something More Serious Happened Like My Engine Dropping Out Of My Vehicle On The Highway Or Something. My Vehicle Isn’t That Old And Only Has 81000 Miles On It. Something Seems Off.

I Noticed Some Extreme Fogging And A Strange Smell In My Car. The Car Had Just Turned Over 75,000, And Was Out Of Warranty. I Took It To My Mechanic Who Said The Heater Coil Had Gone Out. So, He Diconnected The Heater Coil. After That, The Engine Fans Were Running Loudly. About 2-3 Months Later, The Fan Assemby Broke-a Piece Of The Assemby Came Off. All This Occured While Driving.

At First My Engine Light Came On Then My fordescape Started But It Only Creeped Down The Street It Barely Wanted To Go Anywhere When I Got To The Light It Wouldn’t Move At All So I Backed It Up Then Slowly Drove It Across The Street Out The Way Of Traffic & When I Shut It Off It Would Not Start Back Up The Crankshaft & Timing Chain Went Out On It. It Only Has 65,800 Miles On It And I Only Had It 8 Months. I Think There Should Be A Recall On That Part Because The Mileage Is Not That High For It To Go Out Already. It’s Going To Cost A Lot To Get Repaired. I Need To Find Out About The Crankshaft Will Be Able To Get Repaired Under Warranty.

I Had Oil Leakage In Jan 2015 And Took It To Dealership. They Said Its Pto Side Cover Gasket Leaking. Car Had Only 48117 Miles. Had Extended Warranty. They Fixed It. Now Again In A Year I Took Car For Regular Oil Change And They Discover Other Leak. I Don’t See Oil On The Garage Floor Though. This Time It’s Timing Cover Gasket. Don’t Have Extended Warranty Any More. They Said It Will Cost $1340 Plus Tax. I Took It For Second Opinion And They Said No Leakage On Timing Cover Gasket But Same Leak What I Had It Last Year. They Worded Differently. They Call It Transfer Case Cover Leaking. Car Has Only 66300 Miles. Not Understanding Why Car Can Have Leakage Problem In Such Low Mileage. ford Need To Look Into These.
