THE CONTACT OWNS A 2013 FORD ESCAPE. WHILE DRIVING APPROXIMATELY 30 MPH, THE VEHICLE SHUT OFF WITHOUT WARNING. THE VEHICLE WAS RESTARTED AND WAS PULLED OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. THE FAILURE RECURRED AND THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER (MIDLAND FORD, 500 JOE MANN BLVD, MIDLAN, MI 48642, 989-631-0040) WHERE IT WAS DIAGNOSED THAT THE WIRING TO THE SENSOR NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THE MANUFACTURER WAS MADE AWARE OF THE FAILURE AND REFERRED THE CONTACT TO NHTSA. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS APPROXIMATELY 45,000.

POWER TRAIN

9/5/2017 - PITTSBURGH, PA
WHILE DRIVING ON A HIGHWAY WITH THE CRUISE CONTROL SET AT 70 MPH (SPEED LIMIT), THE ENGINE ON MY CAR SUDDENLY AND WITHOUT WARNING CUT OUT. A MESSAGE OF 'YOUR VEHICLE IS NOT IN PARK' APPEARED. I WAS ABLE TO MAKE MY WAY ONTO THE BERM OF THE ROAD, CLOSE TO AN EXIT ON THE HIGHWAY WITH THE CAR'S MOMENTUM. THE CAR'S ENGINE WAS NOT RUNNING. I PUT THE CAR IN PARK, WAITED A MOMENT TO CALM MY NERVES, AND THEN RESTARTED THE CAR. I WAS ABLE TO GET HOME, HOLDING MY BREATH THE ENTIRE TIME, UNCERTAIN WHETHER I WOULD ENCOUNTER THE SAME PROBLEM. CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM - UNKNOWN. I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT TOMORROW AT THE FORD DEALERSHIP WHERE IT WAS PURCHASED. TWICE BEFORE, THIS CAR WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALERSHIP BECAUSE OF A PROBLEM WITH ACCELERATING FROM A STOPPED POSITION. THE CAR WOULD "BUCK" AS IF IT WASN'T GETTING ANY FUEL. THE SECOND VISIT RESULTED IN NO ACTION FROM THE SERVICE DEPT. AS THEY COULD NOT RECREATE THE ISSUE. I ASKED SPECIFICALLY ABOUT CODES FROM THE CAR'S COMPUTER, BUT WAS TOLD THERE WEREN'T ANY. I FOUND THIS SURPRISING BECAUSE I DROVE DIRECTLY TO THE DEALERSHIP WHEN THIS PROBLEM HAPPENED AND THE "CHECK ENGINE" MESSAGE WAS ON THE ENTIRE TRIP THERE.

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

9/4/2017 - PARKER, CO
VEHICLE WAS GOING UP HILL AT APPROXIMATELY 50 MPH (TEMPERATURE GAUGE NORMAL) WHEN, WITHOUT WARNING, AN ALERT STATED THE COOLANT LEVEL WAS LOW. IMMEDIATELY AFTER, A SECOND WARNING CAME ON SAYING THAT THE ENGINE WAS OVERHEATING AND TO PULL OFF THE ROAD SAFELY (NO LONGER ABLE TO ACCELERATE). THE COOLANT LEVEL WAS LOW, BUT HAD BEEN FILLED LESS THAN 3 MONTHS PRIOR. THERE ARE NO VISIBLE LEAKS OR CRACKS IN THE COOLANT RESERVOIR, TUBES, ETC. AFTER WAITING FOR 30 MINUTES, WE PROCEEDED TO COAST DOWN THE HILL IN NEUTRAL (AFTER FILLING THE COOLANT TANK WITH WATER). WE THEN BOUGHT COOLANT AT A LOCAL STORE AND PROCEEDED TO GO BACK UP THE HILL. THE CAR GAVE US THE SAME WARNINGS (COOLANT LOW AND ENGINE OVERHEATING). WE WERE UNABLE TO PULL OFF TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. THANKFULLY A POLICE OFFICER WAS RIGHT BEHIND US, SO WE DID NOT GET HIT. HE OFFERED TO USE THE BATTERING RAM ON THE FRONT HIS CAR TO PUSH US TO SAFETY. HOWEVER, THE CAR WAS ABLE TO GO THE EXTRA 5 FEET WHEN RESTARTED, PRIOR TO IT OVERHEATING AND LOCKING UP AGAIN. AFTER AN ADDITIONAL 30 MINUTES WE AGAIN WENT DOWN THE HILL IN NEUTRAL. AT THIS POINT WE DECIDED TO GIVE THE CAR A BREAK AND ATE DINNER AT A LOCAL RESTAURANT (APPROXIMATELY ONE HOUR). WE THEN PROCEEDED TO DRIVE HOME. ABOUT AN HOUR INTO THE TRIP (WHILE GOING 65 MPH ON THE HIGHWAY THE CAR AGAIN GAVE US THE 2 ALERTS (LOW COOLANT AND CAR OVERHEATING). WE BARLEY WERE ABLE TO GET TO THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY SAFELY. COOLANT LEVEL NORMAL. THIS IS A SERIOUS ISSUE AND NEED TO BE ADDRESSED. I WILL BE CONTACTING FORD TOMORROW TO DETERMINE IF OUR 2013 FORD ESCAPE WAS INCLUDED IN THE INITIAL RECALL (AND ALREADY HAD THE WORK COMPLETED), AS THERE ARE NO OPEN RECALLS ON THE VEHICLE AT THIS TIME. I AM HESITANT TO BRING THE CAR TO A DEALER AS IT APPEARS MANY PEOPLE HAVE GOTTEN THE RUNAROUND AND NO CLEAR SOLUTION HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED. FORD NEEDS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS ISSUE.

STEERING

9/4/2017 - HARVEST, AL
POWER STEERING. FAILURE ON START UP TWICE IN TWO MONTHS AND ONCE WHILE DRIVING. HAD TO PULL OVER AND RESTART CAR AND THEN IT WORKED AGAIN. THIS IS A DANGEROUS SITUATION. HAD SCHEDULED TO TAKE IN WHILE THEY ALSO RECALL MY DOOR LATCH. SOUNDS LIKE MANY FORD OWNERS HAVE THE SAME ISSUE. AFTER SPENDING $2500 ON A FIAT REPAIR FOR CAR LESS THAN 45K MILES AND NOW THIS CAR WITH LESS THAN 60K, I AM NEVER BUYING AMERICAN CARS AGAIN. GARBAGE.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

9/1/2017 - KINGSLAND, GA
MY CAR HAS RAN A 100% SINCE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. I WENT TO GO MOVE MY CAR AFTER I CUT MY GRASS AND INSTANTLY MY POWER STEERING SENSOR WENT OFF AS SOON AS I STARTED MY CAR STATING THAT IT REQUIRED SERVICE DUE TO IT NOT WORKING. JUST LIKE THAT. NO EARLIER WARNINGS, NO MALFUNCTIONS PRIOR TO THIS INCIDENT, NOTHING. I AM A MOTHER OF 4 DAUGHTERS AND THANKFULLY I WAS JUST TRYING TO REPOSITION MY VEHICLE IN MY YARD VS. DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD OR ELSE IT COULD HAVE CAUSED SEVERE BODILY HARM TO US OR EVEN WORSE, IT COULD HAVE CAUSED A MAJOR ACCIDENT THAT COULD HAVE RESULTED IN DEATH. I CALLED THE FORD DEALERSHIP AND THEY STATED EVEN WITH SO MANY COMPLAINTS ON THIS PARTICULAR MODEL, MAKE, AND YEAR HAVING THIS EXACT PROBLEM, THIS IS NOT A RECALL YET. I RESEARCHED IT MYSELF AND FOUND OUT THAT THE 2013 FORD FUSION ALSO HAS THIS PROBLEM, BUT THERE IS CURRENTLY AN ACTIVE RECALL FOR THE FUSION, BUT NOT THE ESCAPE. I AM CONFUSED ON THIS. ARE THEY WAITING ON A DEATH TOLL TO RISE DUE TO FORD'S MALFUNCTIONING PART AND A LAWSUIT BEFORE THEY DECIDE THAT THIS IS A REAL SERIOUS ISSUE OR IS IT BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF CONCERN FOR FORDS CUSTOMERS AND FAMILIES THEY HAD WHEN THEY DECIDED TO USE THIS POORLY PLANNED ELECTRICAL DESIGN THAT IS CONTINUOUSLY MALFUNCTIONING? OR MAYBE ITS BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT THIS IS A BIG ISSUE AND CHARGING CUSTOMERS OVER $1700.00 TO FIX THIS POORLY PLANNED PRODUCT THAT IS GOING TO COST SOMEONE THEIR LIVES WAS GOING TO MAKE THEIR SERVICE DEPARTMENT REVENUE SKY RISE WITH THIS POWER STEERING PROBLEM BEING HIGH IN DEMAND. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY ONE MODEL OF FORD WITH THE SAME YEAR IS ON RECALL FOR THIS, BUT THE OTHER MODEL WITH THE EXACT SAME SET UP AND YEAR IS NOT. I AM A SINGLE MOTHER OF 4 DAUGHTERS THAT IS STILL PAYING ON THIS $19,000.00 VEHICLE THAT IS NOW PARKED IN MY YARD BECAUSE IT IS TOO EXPENSIVE TO FIX. THANKS FORD!!!

ENGINE

8/28/2017 - SAN DIEGO, CA
FIRST INCIDENT: AUGUST 3RD 2016 WHILE DRIVING 50MPH CAR DISPLAYED A ENGINE OVERHEATING WARNING MESSAGE AND SLOWED DOWN AS I PULLED OFF THE ROAD. AFTER A FEW MINUTES I WAS ABLE TO DRIVE AGAIN AND THE MESSAGE DID NOT REAPPEAR, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WAS ON. I TOOK THE CAR TO KEARNEY PERSON FORD 7303 CLAIREMONT MESA BLVD SAN DIEGO, CA 92111 THEY TOLD ME THEY COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG AND TURNED THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT OFF. SECOND INCIDENT: DRIVING TO WORK EARLIER THIS YEAR 2017 I GOT THE SAME MESSAGE THAT MY ENGINE COOLANT WAS LOW, AND TO SLOW DOWN BECAUSE OF CRITICAL OVERHEATING, EVEN THOUGH I HAD JUST HAD THE CAR SERVICED FOR A REGULAR MAINTENANCE CHECK, ONCE AGAIN AT KEARNY PERSON FORD. I WAS DRIVING NORMALLY ON A ROAD AT AROUND 30-40MPH BUT ACCELERATING WHEN THE MESSAGE POPPED UP. I REFILED THE COOLANT AS THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT DID NOT TURN ON. THIRD INCIDENT: THIS WAS THE MOST DANGEROUS TIME. CRITICAL ENGINE OVERHEATING MESSAGE AND LOW COOLANT MESSAGE POPPED UP WITHOUT WARNING WHILE DRIVING UP HILL IN TRAFFIC GOING ABOUT 20MPH ON THE I-5S AT THE IN CALIFORNIA GRAPEVINE. THE ENGINE NEARLY SHUT OFF AND LIMPED ON JUST A COUPLE CYLINDERS AS I TRIED TO GET TO THE SHOULDER. SMOKE WAS COMING OUT FROM UNDER THE HOOD AND THE ENGINE WAS HOT. IT ALL HAPPENED IMMEDIATELY AND WITHOUT WARNING, THE TEMP GAUGE WAS NORMAL AND THEN BAM! OVERHEATED WITH WARNING MESSAGES CRIPPLING THE CAR. DRIVING SLOWLY BUT THE WEATHER WAS HOT IT WAS NEARLY 110 DEGREES OUTSIDE. SEEMS SUPER DANGEROUS. BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF WARNING WHEN THESE INCIDENTS HAPPEN. THE WAY THAT THE COOLANT JUST DISAPPEARS, AND THE SMOKE AND CHANCE OF FIRE.
