8/16/2017 - SHERMAN OAKS, CA
FORD MOTOR COMPANY ANNOUNCED A RECALL REGARDING LEAKING COOLANT, RESULTANT CRACKED CYLINDER HEADS, AND RESULTANT UNDERHOOD/VEHICLE FIRES, ON MARCH 27, 2017. THE MANUFACTURER'S AND NHTSA'S RECALL NUMBER IS 17S09. THIS IS A CRITICAL SAFETY ISSUE, AS VEHICLE FIRE'S ARE LIKELY TO RESULT IN INJURY AND OR DEATH. AS OF AUGUST 16, 2017, FORD HAS NOT MADE AVAILABLE ANY REMEDY WHATSOEVER FOR THIS ISSUE; FORD HAS FAILED TO TIMELY CORRECT THE PROBLEM. MOREOVER, FORD'S PROPOSED REMEDY, WHICH AGAIN IS NOT AVAILABLE 5 MONTHS AFTER ITS IDENTIFYING THE ISSUE, IS A COOLANT LEVEL SENSOR, WHICH DOES NOT ADDRESS AT ALL THE UNDERLYING ISSUE OF LEAKING COOLANT, AND THUS DOES NOTHING TO PREVENT THE RESULTANT VEHICLE/UNDERHOOD FIRES.

WHILE DRIVING ON A BUSY STREET THE CAR STALLED AND WOULD NOT TURN OVER TO RESTART. OTHER VEHICLES HAD TO SWERVE TO AVOID COLLISION WHILE IT STALLED AND PUSHED TO A SAFE LOCATION. ONCE TAKEN TO THE MECHANIC IT WAS IDENTIFIED AS THE FUEL PUMP BEING THE PROBLEM. EVEN THOUGH MY VIN NUMBER WAS NOT IDENTIFIED IN THE RECALL OF OTHER 2014 FORD ESCAPE IT SHOULD BE LOOKED INTO EXPANDING THE RECALL DUE TO THE POSSIBILITY OF DANGER TO PASSENGERS IN THE VEHICLES.
