Failure Date: 03/09/2015

Was driving 25 miles an hour down small hill, the car in front of me stopped. I hit the breaks and the car didn't stop it felt as if I was pushing the accelerator like when pushing button! to speed up cruise control and it slowly increases speed. I slammed both feet to the brake and went to reach for emergency brake but never made it. I hit the other car. Last thing I remember is hearing metal crunch, the next thing I remember is smoke, top of my head on left side hairline ached looked in mirror and saw blood. Started looking for my phone on the dash but it was broken. Could hear someone talking, then people were walking up to car. When the officer got there he asked what I hit my head on I didn't know, he asked if I had my seatbelt on I said yes. I told him my car wouldn't stop. Realized when e. M. T asked same question I knee I had it on but couldn't remember taking it off, and I told him that. He looked at chest didn't see marks or bruising, he asked again if I was sure, I was sure I put it on. After crash, when got to tow yard next day saw my seat belt broke, I cracked the windshield with my head and broke all under steering wheel with my knees. . . But the airbags deployed must have been after I hit everything because it hit me in the arm only based on that stinging red raised rash that later bruised on my forearm, no airbag to face injuries, just hit top of head on windshield and knees on lower dash under steering wheel, bruising on stomach lower abdomen near pelvic bone may have been steering wheel. My car kept going faster breaks didn't slow me at all witness said and my seatbelt latch is in pieces, my airbag went of late. My bumper is folded like a flat piece of metal about one inch wide hit it pushing it into my rradiator. My SUV was going 25 miles an hour, my SUV bumper hit a small car bumper, that car was stopped. What went wrong?.

Failure Date: 08/01/2014

My car was stopped in traffic and some one hit it from back coming at a speed of approx. 35-40 miles/hour. Driver and front passengers hit their faces and knees on dashboard. Both seat belts (driver side and passenger side) did not restrain and stop passengers moving forward. We have noticed this problem on both seat belts (driver and passenger side) on this car (2014 Ford Escape se) since we have owned this car that both seat belts (driver and passenger side) are very lose and does not restrain when pulled suddenly. This caused the bruising of faces and knees of passengers in this accident. If seat belts were working properly and restraining properly this would not have happened. This problem could have been worse or life threatening if a similar accident would have occurred on a highway. I now have told a Ford dealer to check it. I am not sure if this problem is only on my car or other 2014 Ford Escape se model of cars. This needs to brought to the attention of manufacturer(Ford) to recall and fix this problem if it is true for all of this model of cars.
