My 2018 Ford Escape engine light came on. I took it to the dealership to have it checked. They put a machine on it and said you need a new engine. I went to see my salesman and he was not in. I called the next day and told him about my Escape. I told him I would not feel safe in it now. He said there was nothing they could do. I called Ford motor company and they started a case file on it. Ford said that I need to pick up my Escape when it is ready and drive it for at least 5 days, again I told them I didn�t feel safe. The case worker said that is how they do things. I am scheduled to pick it up today Thursday. June 14, 2018 by 8:00 pm. I have only made 5 payments on the Escape. I would like to change my out my lease. The dealership said it would cost me a lot of money to do that. The reasons I get leased cars because they are new and shouldn�t need to be at service after the first 5 months of driving it.
While driving, everything cut off. I could not accelerate, the power steering turned off, and I had to try and safely pull over. Luckily, each time I was in a position where I could pull over safely. Restarted the vehicle and everything seemed normal. This is extremely scary and unbelievably dangerous!!! please Ford, do something about this! have taken it in for service and no code can be found and everything passes the diagnostic tests. What can be done??.

After my mechanic had it for a day, he contacted me stating it has an electrical problem and that he was calling the Ford dealership, due to it being faulty and that they should fix it. I then was called back and he confirmed with auburn Ford, in auburn, can, that there was a recall that could fix the problem and that the dealer had to do the repairs, why I called Ford, I was told there was only 1-recall for the doors. After I told him the mechanic was told there were 2, he changed his story. He then said there were 2-recalls, but neither would fix my car. He then started I would need to pay $ to have them diagnose it.
