Abs control module / hydraulic control unit hcu has gone out on my 2008 Ford Escape hybrid. It has left me with very little braking ability. If this was to happen on the hwy it could have been catastrophic. It is a $6,000 repair and it apparently requires a full replacement of the $4,000 part, the abs control module / hcu. Ford needs to take ownership of this issue and correct the problem with their faulty hcus in these cars!.

I was driving to my bank which is an hour away. As I drove up a steep mountain at the top the truck just shut off and I coasted to the side of hwy. After I stop tried starting 4 times and nothing happen. Set for 10mins then tried again truck started I made it back home without stalling. I took my in truck to be looked at diagnostic fuel throttle. Every day since im stalling 1or 2 a day trucks should be made to endure parts should be. More durable its always about cutting corners. Making more money off of customer. Can we just the land of the free and a home of honest amd integrity. I must work if dont have reliable trasnportation its difficult where I live. Please do something about all these defected trucks we trust Ford but I have lost trust in their ablity to make great lasting trucks. I will never buy another Ford again this my last one from Ford. Thank you.

Failure Date: 12/09/2016

14s05. I was driving the 2009 Ford Escape on the highway at approx. 70mph. The steering will stopped controlling the vehicle correctly and then the steering went completely out. I almost crashed, pulled onto the shoulder of the highway, gathered myself, cut on the hazard lights and cut the auto off. After a minute, I started the auto up again and moved forward to see if the problem still existed. The power steering was back in but it was very very loose. When I got it home I informed my mother that it needed to be looked at. She called the Ford hotline and they told her that the recall on her vehicle was closed but if the steering went out, that it was covered by the recall. She took it to the dealer that Ford told her too and they said they would repair it. She left the vehicle over night to be fixed but the next day they told her that it wasn't a recall and that she had to pay $89 for the diagnostic test that she didn't know she had to pay. They still refuse to help in any kind of way at all. My mother is in her mid 70's with a fixed income. It's impossible for her to come up with $2000. . Read more...

Purchased 2015 Ford Escape on may 1, 2015. In February of 2016 the windshield wiper fluid and pump stopped working. Took to Ford dealer who said that rodents had chewed through the windshield wiper lines and pump area electrical. Made repair. Now, December 2016 I tried to use the windshield wiper fluid to find that it had once again been chewed. I have been parking multiple vehicles (new and used) in the same driveway since 1989 with no issues. Rodents have chewed the sound barrier material in the front wheel wells as well as the wiper fluid lines, etc. And made a nest in the wheel well.

As I was driving home from work and turning a corner, my power steering just stopped working and I almost drove into another car, so to avoid colliding into on coming traffic I went onto the shoulder. I contacted the dealer and they said that my car was not included in the recall, but according to this web site it is. What do I need to do, crash?.

While driving down the road about 50mph, the car lost all power and it actually felt as if the someone had depressed the brakes. Since I had not hit the brakes the car behind me did not see any brake lights and almost rammed me. The engine light came on briefly at some point but I can't remember exactly when. My car then stalled. I was able to drift to the side out of the way. I tried starting and it would not start. After about 15 minutes it did start up and drove perfectly fine. This has happened to me 3 times over the past couple of months. I searched recalls and found recall 14s17 and notified Ford. They said it doesn't cover my VIN. Why doesn't it? this is the problem I am having and it looks like many other people are experiencing the same issue. This has the potential to cause an accident, hurt someone or even cause death! my car was manufactured in Nov 2012 and the recall states that it covers Jan 2012 to April 2013 but not my vehicle. Why???.

I had gotten into my vehicle and after turning it on I managed to make it to my neighbors house. My vehicle for the second time started to over heat and the engine light came on and the vehicle was stating that I need to refill the coolant. I just parked it and the next day we had filled the coolant again taken it to get the error codes checked and were informed we need to get a new thermostat. When taking it to the mechanics they had tried everything from checking codes to driving my vehicle and they were unable to get the issue taken care of due to not being able to re-create the codes. They had informed me that this is a known issue with Ford, however when contacting Ford they have no idea what I am talking about. I checked online and see there is a recall for this, but my VIN even though having the qualifying manufacturing date is not eligible. I have had my vehicle for 1 1/2 years and have had it shut down on me, not have any power, start to put and stall, refilling coolant every so often, over heat, and I can never get a straight answer from the dealership. I have called for information in regards to recalls and these issues and am transferred to a person who is not there so I can leave a voice mail. I have never had a call returned. I just want to know what I have to do to understand what is going on with my vehicle. Why is my VIN not eligible as well?.

Failure Date: 10/06/2016

Driving down a street in my neighborhood when the brakes failed. In previous occurrences I was told that the calipers froze up and that the brakes would make a grinding noise. Also the computer system on the vehicle would never record the proper amount of fuel in the tank or at times engage the brakes. I am not a professional but I know this vehicle did have issues. The vehicle was in motion on a city street and when I applied the brakes nothing happened. Upon impact it appeared I hit the steering wheel before the airbag deployed. I had my seat belt on. I have driven down that city road thousands of times but it appeared this time there was a issue with he vehicle that caused this accident. Injuries were airbag related.

I have a 2012 Ford Escape. I have had it for a year and it just started acting up. The first time this happened was sept 12, 16 while I was headed to work. While accerlerating from being in park, the throttle body/ power train light illuminates causing the car to not accelerate like it should and a lot of squeaking comes from the car. So, I have to put the car in park and turn off the egnition. Once I turn it back on it goes back to driving normally. This has happened six times within 45 days.
