AIR BAGS

11/5/2016 - FISHERSVILLE, VA
MY WIFE WAS IN A ACCIDENT INVOLVING HER 2011 FORD ESCAPE. SHE WAS HIT IN THE FRONT END BY ANOTHER VEHICLE AND HER CAR WAS TOTALED. HER AIR BAG DIDN'T DEPLOY!! SHE WAS BEAT UP AND BRUISED QUITE A BIT BUT WAS LUCKY TO NOT HAVE ANY BROKEN BONES. I BELIEVE THAT IF EITHER VEHICLE WERE TRAVELING FASTER THAN THEY WERE SHE MIGHT HAD BEEN SEVERELY INJURED IF NOT KILLED. I SENT FORD THE INFO INCLUDING THE VIN NUMBER 3 DAYS AGO AND HAVE NOT HAD A REPLY. DO YOU THINK THIS WAS AN ANOMALY OR HAVE YOU HEARD OTHER FORD ESCAPES WITH THE SAME ISSUE?? MY WIFE HAD STOPPED AT A STOP SIGN AND SAID SHE LOOKED BOTH WAYS THEN PROCEEDED TO PULL MAKING A LEFT TURN WHEN THE OTHER VEHICLE APPROACHED HER FROM HER LEFT AND STRUCK HER IN THE FRONT END ON AN ANGLE. THE ENTIRE FRONT GRILL AND BUMPER WERE BOTH KNOCKED OFF PUSHING THE RADIATOR INTO THE ENGINE. MY WIFE WAS CITED FOR FAILURE TO YIELD.

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

10/23/2016 - KINGWOOD, TX
GAS SMELL INSIDE CAR. ON THIRD OR FOURTH DAY OF RECURRING SMELL, TOOK TO SERVICE. SERVICE TECH HAD DIFFICULTY FINDING LEAK, AS THEIR WAS NO VISIBLE DRIPS TO THE GROUND. RETURNED TO DRIVING WHILE THE GAS SMELL BECAME STRONGER. RETURNED TO SERVICE, THIS TIME HE FOUND THE SOURCE TO BE THE FUEL PUMP. THE PROBLEM WAS ACTUALLY THE ELBOW PLASTIC NECK LEADING INTO THE FUEL PUMP WAS SPEWING GAS FROM AN INVISIBLE HAIRLINE CRACK. THE LEAK STOPS WHEN THE CAR IS TURNED OFF. THE LOCATION OF THE FUEL PUMP IS UNDER THE REAR SEAT - CAUSING A THICK SMELL OF GAS AND EXTREME DANGER OF EXPLOSION. I HAVE NEVER HAD REPAIR WORK ON THAT PART. THIS APPARENTLY IS DUE TO MANUFACTURE FLAW IN MATERIALS. I AM A NEW WIDOW AND LOOKING AT A $650 REPLACEMENT FUEL PUMP. I CONSIDERED DEALING WITH EPOXY BUT AM AFRAID THIS WILL CAUSE FURTHER DAMAGE AND RISK.
