#1 - Engine Overheat problem of the 2013 Ford Escape
Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 1FMCU9GX2D_. My Ford Escape 1. 6l engine will overheat if I park it by the beach all day & then try to drive over the foothills to the valley. This is a consistent and repeatable problem. I have two videos that I showed Ford but apparently they can't fix it. This car is not safe to drive since my car can overheat when I'm on a road like highway 17, which doesn't have a shoulder. The failure date was Wed., May. 1, 2013.
