** accident*** Ford dealer diagnosis found codes p2036 and p26b7 as map sensor and pefr wire and engine coolant bypass valve. The Ford dealer stated that this vehicle VIN#1fmcu0gx4duc67351 is not under recall and wants over $1100. 00 to repair . The NHTSA campaign number 15v813000 covers this vehicle's diagnosis made by Ford and should be recalled also under Ford's recall number 14s17-s1. I've called Ford motor corp.

In the condition that this vehicle is at present I am seeking repairs under NHTSA campaign # 15v813000.
This car has less than 44 miles and is all breaking down, when the battery when down all electrical parts are not working correctly windows are going up and down with out pushing the button, lights turn on and of by then self's, is just to new to happen all this problem, ha money that they charge (dealer ) is to expensive, and I suppose paid every maintenance for inspection to see if my car is doing ok , last time they inspected and didnt see the battery problem , the missing screw in the container of refrigerant, and low oil level in the brake container. That not have warranty any more , like they know all ready that it will be problem with the electrical part. I think this cars are the worse when they are electricall or to much "technology" I was in los angeles area far awy from home and a place that seem dangerous. . . . . It wasnt safety to be in that place with my broken new car. T this should be a recall to see id electrical are working correctly , this now is going a cost a fortune, . . . This is not right, I didnt feel safe since my windows was open , was in the night and near to a liquor store and rehab center. People acting estrange asking for money , could not close my windows.

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?.
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.
While driving at highway speeds (roughly 70 mph) my vehicle completely turned off with no warning and said "engine fault. Service now". By the grace of god I did not get rear ended. I successfully restarted the vehicle and made it home. The same thing happened the next morning, this time on city streets going roughly 20 mph during rush hour. Against, I was beyond lucky to have not gotten injured or worse and there was no warning again.

I was traveling 60 mph when the engine started shaking violently, I lost the ability to accelerate and the check engine light came on with an error message of "engine fault". Once I made it to the side of the road, the engine idled down to 400 and shut off. I tried to crank it up again and the engine immediately started jumping violently. Vehicle was towed to the Ford dealership and they said it was recall 16b32.
This can happen any time the engine is stop, while park at home,shopping any where the engine is stop . To start the key in inserted to steering column opening and it will not engage properly at times it takes to move back and fort the key while inserted and it will start, this is happening more often now. Took the Escape to grand prairie Ford texas and they said it was the steering column lock module need to be replace plus an alignment total for $787. 65 understand that the 2009 Escape has the same problem but Ford has issued a recall on it but not the 2010, this is rather absurd since the know the problem. Now I have the choice to repair or drive until the key no longer works, what a choice, I'm a widower , retired and live on ss, thanks Ford.
When sitting idle at red light or stop sign, it rumbles roughly, I hit the accelerator it hesitates to go then all of a sudden gets a burst of speed. This mainly happens in city street.

Door ajar activates constantly setting off the car alarm and killing the car battery. This happens while car is sitting stationary, and or moving (while driving) this has been going on since the day the car was purchased in 4-2007, and it happens quite often, and is happening up to the day this was submitted (8-25-2016. This is a very well known issue with this car and Ford. . . Yet nothing is being done about it. You say it isn't a safety issue, but if you go to Ford or a dealer to have the alarm and door switch disconnected they say they cant due to a safety issue.
