ENGINE

1/12/2017 - MARKHAM, VA
WHILE COMMUTING IN HEAVY TRAFFIC THIS MORNING, WITH TIMES OF HEAVY IDLING, AN EXHAUST TYPE SMELL STARTING COMING INTO THE CABIN CAUSING ME TO BECOME NAUSEOUS AND DIZZY UNTIL WINDOWS WERE OPENED. THIS HAS HAPPENED ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS, PARTICULARLY WHEN THE WEATHER GOES FROM COLD TO MILD (NOT REQUIRING A/C), BUT SOME HEAT. THIS VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO A FORD DEALERSHIP LAST MARCH FOR THE SAME ISSUE, BUT THE PROBLEM WAS NOT DIAGNOSED. I PURCHASED A BATTERY OPERATED CO2 DETECTOR TO TEST AND IT ALARMED WHILE DRIVING UNDER THESE CONDITIONS. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE SAME FORD DEALER THIS MORNING AND LEFT RUNNING. THE SERVICE TECHNICIAN DID DETECT SOME TYPE OF ODOR COMING THROUGH THE VENTS.

1/11/2017 - ENGLEWOOD, OH
DRIVING DOWN ROAD ON COLD SNOWY DAY. COOLANT ARROW WENT FROM C TO H IN LESS THAN 5 SECONDS AND ENGINE SHUT DOWN INTO SAFETY MODE MEANING IT WOULD NOT TRAVEL OVER 5 MPH. LIMPED TO SIDE OF ROAD. FELT ENGINE - COLD TO THE TOUCH. PLENTY OF COOLANT IN ENGINE AND RESERVOIR. CAR SAT FOR FIVE MINUTES. STARTED CAR AGAIN. COOLANT ARROW AGAIN WENT FROM C TO H IN LESS THAN 5 MINUTES. CAR IN SAFETY MODE AGAIN. TOWED CAR TO DEALER. THEY COULD SEE THE CODE NUMBER AND "SOMETHING" HAPPENED TO THE ENGINE. THEY RESET THE CODE AND CAR WENT OUT OF SAFETY MODE. DEALERSHIP CANNOT PROVIDE AN ANSWER, ONLY IT "MUST BE AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM". SEARCHING THE WEB, IT APPEARS THIS MODEL AND YEAR FORD HAS BEEN HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM (AS DESCRIBED) FOR SEVERAL YEARS. VEHICLE WAS IN MOTION WHEN EVERYTHING WENT BAD. LUCKILY WE WERE NOT ON THE HIGHWAY AND WAS ABLE TO PULL TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. I WAS GIVEN LITTLE NOTICE OF THE SAFETY MODE. I WISH HAD I HAD THE CODE NUMBER THE DEALERSHIP SAID THEY RESET. THANK YOU

I WAS DRIVING ON AN INTERSTATE AND MY BACK WINDSHIELD MADE A POPPING SOUND AS A BASEBALL SIZED PIECE OF GLASS FELL OUT. THEN IT STARTED MAKING A CRACKLING SOUND AS THE REST BEGAN TO SHATTER AND SLOWLY FALL OUT. THERE WAS NOBODY AROUND TO THROW ANYTHING AT IT. IT WAS VERY COLD OUT, BUT THE DEFROSTER WAS NOT ON.

12/29/2016 - TAYLORSVILLE, UT
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN, MY 2013 FORD ESCAPE IS EXPERIENCING CRACKING IN THE LEATHER OF THE FRONT SEAT BOLSTER. IT IS SUCH A FRUSTRATING PROBLEM TO HAVE ON A CAR THAT IS ONLY THREE YEARS OLD. THERE IS A TSB #15-0129 IN REFERENCE TO THIS APPARENTLY KNOWN PROBLEM. I JUST HOPE THAT IF THERE ARE ENOUGH COMPLAINTS MAYBE FORD WILL ISSUE A RECALL AND REPAIR THE PROBLEM. THANK YOU,
