(vincent d. kirksey) he was very rude and demanding. he basically told me i had two options: either sign the form and have ford repair my vehicle, or he would rescind the "offer" and make me go through my insurance company. i asked him several times what the form was for, and he replied it was necessary to authorize the repair and that is was a policy of ford with this type of incident. i told him it sounded like i had a third option - he told me to go ahead and use it - he was rescinding ford's offer to repair my vehicle under warranty. i am concerned with my family's safety - we now drive our 2005 escape with a fire extinguisher in the vehicle - we do not want to burn up or have our vehicle destroyed. .Vehicle was on fire. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 18542 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 20, 2005.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:SENSOR/CONTROL MODULE . i have a 2005 ford escape that i purchased on february 19,2005. i have been having continuous problems with the passenger air bag light. the salesman at future ford of roseville(which is where i purchased the vehicle) told my husband and i that the car had a safety feature that would turn off the passenger air bag if some one fifty pounds or less was in the vehicle. now having kids that really peaked our interest. went on to purchase the car. not soley based on this feature but it was a deciding factor. ever since we have had a problem with it. the light indicating that the airbag has turned off comes on even when i am sitting in the seat and i weigh over 120 lbs. i have taken the car back several times and they have witnessed the problem them selves several times. the company has even called out an engineer from ford motor company and he seen the problem happen when someone was sitting in the seat. however they can not figure out why it is doing this because the factory tests that they run are sowing that the car is working properly. it is obvious to everyone that this is not true because the light comes on as soon as i sit in the seat. they told me that they would put me into another car and take back the escape. i chose a 2005 ford freestar. which has the same safety feature but it works when i am in the seat. i have had the car for over three weeks and now they have called us and said that we have to bring it back because they cant find us someone to finance us due to the negative equity from the escape. i do not know what my rights are in this case. they want us to return the van and i am really upset because that means that i have top take back the escape which is the very car that i am not safe in. two of the service employees told me that they have had this problem with the escape and the explorer before. i just need to know what my rights are. please get back to me as soon as possible. thanks you for your time. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMYU02Z75K.

Ford Escape 2005 Service Brakes, Hydraulic Power Assist Vacuum Review #10208036

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Nov 03, 2007.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:POWER ASSIST:VACUUM . in 2006 i experienced the failure of my car to operate one morning. i initially thought that i had made the error since i have a manual vehicle i occasionally take my foot off the pedal; i had no idea why the car had stopped running right after i started it as i began to pull out of the parking space. the car stopped a couple of times which concerned me so i contacted the dealer in new jersey where i was located at the time for him to look at the car for this problem. he assured me that the parts would work and all was right again as i left the service department, new 5l8z-2c053-ba and yl8z-19048-aa parts installed. one year later, november 3, 2007 the same problem began to happen again. i immediately took the vehicle to the dealer and he informed me that the cable and the foot pedal vacuum were no longer operating (5l8z-2c053-ba and yl8z-19048-aa) as was the case the previous year and that he had to wait for a new part in order to replace these defective parts. i asked why this had happened again, and what i was told horrified me. the manufacturer most likely had not resolved the problem of the past and that the problem was in the parts. i asked why there was not a more life safety solution to this very dangerous problem and i was told that since this did not happen often it was not deemed a real issue. the rationale is appalling. how am i expected to be safe with this vehicle when the condition is not resolved it is just prolonged, with failure looming over me? how do i drive my child and the other members of my family and friends in a vehicle that can stop operating at any given moment?? my complaint is in regard to life safety and value of reciprocity. since there is no death as of yet, i must wait for the failure? this is emotionally stressful. *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 12992 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 02, 2008.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . about 6 weeks ago, my wife called me at work to report her 2005 escape "made a funny noise" when she tried to start it. when i got home that afternoon, i went to investigate it. when i put the key in and turned it on, it exploded. the intake manifold disentergrated and schrapnel from it severed wiring harness, knocked parts off etc. having 39k miles on it i had it towed to a local top rated mechanic. after the mechanic repaired the mechanical damage, he sent it to beach ford for a pcm issue. they replaced the pcm (under ford warranty, admitting that the computer was ?fried? and this has been a problem with other escapes) but absolves any knowledge or responsibility as to why the explosion occurred in the first place because a ?third party person? repaired the car before beach ford saw it. a ?mike? at ford customer service who based on conversations with beach ford, said that repairs by a third party precludes ford from any responsibility as to why the car exploded in the first place. my mechanic has done internet research and found other reports of pcm issues with the escapes causing problems from failures to explosions. a tech at the ford dealer said it has to do with stray voltage being induced into the wiring and going back up into the pcm, but then ford and the service director denied any knowldege of this. ford said the car is repaired (at my expense) and washed their hands of this situation leaving me with a car that has only 39,000 miles on it and exploded in my driveway causing sever damage, and no attempt to investigate why it happened. i have all the damaged parts that were replaced and told ford that. no one will address why it exploded in the first place. what if this happened at 55 mph vice in my driveway, or my wife was home and i opened the hood and had her start the car so i could listen for that noise she said? please help me out. *tr .Vehicle was on fire. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 39000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on July 17, 2009.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with TIRES . i have a 2005 ford escape with two oem tires on the rear and two newer tires of from the same company (continental) on the front end. for months now, when traveling at various speeds on the highway, i have heard a loud and violent flapping sound. the noise sounded as if there was a window open... after checking my tires, seal on all openings, etc., i could not find the source of the problem. yesterday evening, while driving on the highway between 50 and 70mph, i had a blowout of my rear oem driver's side tire. fortunately, it was not raining and it occurred while driving along a stretch of i-10 that had no guardrails, construction, etc. when i got out to inspect the damage, i noted that the tread itself was practically without problem; the problem was in the sidewall. my had a rip in the shape of a crescent moon with splitting going both toward the exterior of the tire and toward the interior or wheel/hub assembly. a local police officer arrived and assisted with the repair, which took moments, but i am quite concerned about the integrity of both the remaining oem tire i currently still have on the rear passenger side and, more importantly, the two newer continental sport lx tires i currently have on the front end. my car has low mileage for it's age and the tread on all of my tires is not worn; there appears to be no explanation other than a design flaw or defect. i am quite concerned for my safety and am unsure whether i should replace all four tires with a different brand or if this alleged defect only affects the oem line of continental tires which came with my vehicle (continental contitrac i think). i have read about similar instances online, but all instances do not describe a resolution process other customers purchasing new tires and/or receiving a $20 voucher from the tire manufacturer, general. i think this brand/model should be recalled and replacement tires of better quality should be provided at no cost. *tr.Mileage was 42833 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Oct 16, 2009.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i was driving on the new york state thruway at about 65mph. my car rapidly decelerated and all the panel lights lit up. there was no crash, but that was just luck- had i been in heavy traffic at the time of the incident i probably would have been rear ended. what ultimately failed is my power train control module ( pcm) on my 2005 ford escape. turns out there is a technical service bulletin describing the failure i experienced; refer to ford's bulletin 09-2-6, which supercedes 05-11-1. i got lucky, as i said, because i just happened to be in a break in traffic, which up to that point had been bumper to bumper. the rapid deceleration was the result of losing 3 cylinders, so it occurred without the benefit of brake lights coming on. rapid deceleration, without brake lights, in heavy traffic, due a problem which ford knew about since 2005 (the year i bought the car) sure seem like a severe accident waiting to happen. no notice was provided of the failure prone spark plugs which initiate the failures. *tr.Mileage was 81000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Feb 04, 2010.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN . i have a 2005 ford escape v6 with just over 87,000 miles on it. the vehicle began giving me trouble back at christmas, but i was able to drive until a couple weeks ago when the whole thing shuddered to a stop on the highway on the way to work. i was doing 55 and the car dropped to almost 0. i have been told it is the pcm which was fried because the spark plugs caused rf interference that fried the ground on it and ruined the pcm. this is a $2300 or more repair to an otherwise perfect vehicle. if i hadn't been in the righthand lane at the time of the power drop i could have been in a real mess. i have researched this online and there are literally hundreds of other complaints of the same thing going on all over the world. there is one complaint from ghana. the tsb that came out says the original sparkplugs cause the problem and ruin all the coil packs and the pcm. i think this would make it ford's responsibility to fix the problem on all these vehicles since it was their original configuration that ruined the system. if this had happened when my wife was taking our son somewhere and she wasn't able to get off the road i am quite sure there would have been a crash. *tr.Mileage was 87000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Apr 01, 2010.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with UNKNOWN OR OTHER . my 2005 ford escape has a problem with the accelerator sticking. it used to only stick in cold weather right when i started the car, but now it does it regardless of temperature, and even while driving. i went from having this problem maybe once every three months (approx 3 years ago was the first occurrence), to it happening almost every time i drive the car. when it sticks, i cannot accelerate at all. i will use both feet to try and depress the gas, but it is like pushing against a wall. sometimes simply restarting the car fixes it, but i was stuck in the middle of an intersection yesterday when it froze up half-way through the turn. i had to be pushed to the shoulder. luckily there was not too much oncoming traffic that would have risked an accident. i have looked this up online, and many other escape owners discuss this very same problem. i called the ford dealership, and they said that this is not a recall, but it very much should be. i am taking it in to be looked at, and hopefully they can fix it, but this is obviously a manufacturer defect if so many other owners are having the same issue. ford does not want the same reputation as toyota right now, and they should do something about it proactively. the escape is a mid-size suv that many families own. by the time a mother and her two children are killed simply turning across a street, it will be too late..Mileage was 98460 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 20, 2011.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . i am a wedding photographer and while traveling about 4.5 hours away from home to shoot a wedding i had problems about 2 hours into my trip. i was on interstate 20 just outside of columbia, sc. i was in the left hand lane behind a semi truck, there was another semi truck in the right lane beside me and behind me i had a large van. i was going about 65-70 when suddenly, the car lost all power including the steering and all the warning lights blinked on. i somehow regained control of the car by shifting in neutral and restarting. i hate to think what would have happened had i not been able to react as fast as i did as the van behind me had to slam on his breaks to keep from hitting me. once the semi truck was cleared of the right lane i got over and turned on my flashers. since i had it running i was too scared to pull over on the side. i got to my nearest exit and pulled over. i turned off the vehicle and all the warning lights went off except the abs and the check engine light. i restarted and drove about a mile to a mechanic. they could not see anything wrong but heard the misfire. the car was towed to classic ford in columbia, sc. i had to rent a car to finish my trip as i couldn't let down a couple about to be married. i just got the estimate to the tune of over $2700.00. it's the pcm module along with coil, spark plugs and a few other things. i am now debating about weather to fix it or not as all the reviews i have read it seems like people continue to have problems after it's fixed. it sounds like ford really needs to figure out a way to fix this chronic problem before someone dies in an accident. .Mileage was 104000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 13, 2010.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . the first issue i had with my car was in december of 2010. i immediately took my car to a repair place and they told me that the coils and the plugs were out and that they needed to be replaced. i assumed that this was just time to get this repaired because my car was right over the 100,000 mile mark. everything seemed fine until may of 2011 when the problem returned. this time i took my car to a ford service center. this time i noticed that my car would run ok up to about 35 mph and then after that speed it would start jerking. if i take my foot off the gas it stops, but if i leave my foot on the gas and continue to accelerate, the car shuts off completely. i haven't taken my car anywhere that i have to drive over 45mph but recently i noticed that if i try to accelerate past 35, that instead of jerking to turn my car off, the harder i push the gas, it feels like i am pushing the brake with that same intensity when i haven't even touched the brake. im afraid that while pushing the gas, the car is going to brake and that someone else is going to slam into the back of my car and hurt my 2 yr old son in his carseat in the back. i avoid driving this car unless i absolutely have to because it is dangerous. it seems that many other owners of the same car i have are having the same or a similar issue. this really needs to be checked into because ford is aware that this is a common issue but will do nothing about it. it seems like they are waiting for someone to get hurt before the assume responsibility. *tr.Mileage was 110000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 13, 2012.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . my wife got into her escape to return home and it would not run properly. it was missing badly and lacked adequate power to pull itself. i took my escape to the repair shop and was appauled by their findings. i am going to quote directly from the diagnostic report i received. "some escape/mariner vehicles built on or before 10/3/2005 , equipped with a 3.0l engine may exhibit a malfunction indicator lamp (mil) on with two or more diagnostic trouble codes (dtc's) for coil on plug (cop) primary circuit faults (p0351-p0356). this may be due to the cop and powertrain control module (pcm) reacting to radio frequency interference from the spark plugs." my repair technician told me that this was a common problem with vehicles like mine. after searching the web, i found one person whose escape died while on the interstate and during heavy traffic and plenty of others with similar circumstances. i suppose i was lucky because my problem happened in a parking lot. i had to replace my powertrain control module and all six coils at a cost of over $1200. i saved labor costs by doing the work myself, but others i read about didn't have the same fate. my technician also told me they have seen this problem numerous times and that i should save my receipts because ford may issue a recall. my vehicle went from running perfectly to not running at all without any warning. i had to replace the transmission in this same vehicle at only 37000 miles, but that's another story. needless to say i am extremely dissappointed. *tt.Mileage was 95000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 07, 2011.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . while driving vehicle at 50 mph the gas pedal, throttle became stuck. this occurred as i was entering the highway, the speed of the vehicle immediately started to slow, this was an extreme hazard as traffic behind me had to go around me, i was pressing the gas pedal and it was like pressing a brick. i was very lucky no one rear ended me going 60mph. this occurs in cold weather (under 45 degrees), but i can see from previous complaints that it will happen in warm weather too eventually. i guess ford will not issue a recall until a fatality occurs. i am in the process of finding a mechanic that i can afford to get the throttle body replaced at my expense, as ford dealers are not offering any help for me. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMYU92Z55K.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Oct 19, 2009.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . first time it happened in 2009, i was driving on the freeway in traffic when the traffic began to accelerate, when i depressed my accelerator it was like pressing against a wall. my car was moving from the natural force from when i was braked but it would not accelerate, i had to steer my car to the shoulder and stop. when i stopped i made a phone to a friend of mine to tell them to come and get me because my car wasn't working. as i was waiting for them i decided to start my car and press the accelerator, when i did it worked so i went ahead and drove home. this happened approximately 3 more times that year but on these occasions once i would attempt to depress the accelerator as i was driving it would then work. i made a note to get it fixed but by this time it was the spring and it never happened again until winter 2011. i this point i had my neighbor look at it(who is a mechanic) and he said it was the throttle cable, he sprayed it with some wd40 and it seemed to work, well that was only for about 2 days, because it stuck again one morning on the way to work. at this point i took it to a mechanic to get the throttle cable fixed. unfortunately, at the time i took it in i wasn't able to "recreate" the problem. i explained the shop the problem and they too felt as though it may be the cable, i spent around $300 for the part and labor to have it replaced. well that was november of 2011 and it is now feb 2012 and it happened again this morning. as other's have reported i am thankful that as i was making the left turn that it was a protected left, due to the light, because that's when my accelerator failed. i had to pull over wait around 15min. and then it worked. just would like a straight answer to the fix. this car just got paid off in 2010 and i want to feel like it is an asset and not a liability to my family. *tr.Mileage was 30 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 07, 2007.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . a few years ago, i started having problems with my gas pedal sticking. it seemed like a brick was underneath the pedal and no matter how hard i pushed it would not unstick. the problem lasted about a month and then went away. every once in a while, the pedal would stick slightly for just a second, but not anything that really concerned me. last week (3/7/2012), the pedal started sticking bad. it seems to be within the first 5 minutes of starting the car and can stick for 10-15 seconds, which is very scary when driving. i had to pull over a couple of times, just because i could no longer accelerate. now, i have started driving around the block for a few minutes until i don't feel the pedal stick anymore before i continue with my drive. the problem has been occurring almost daily for a week now. i can see how if i was turning left and my gas pedal sticks, i could easily get broad sided by an oncoming car. i don't feel comfortable driving the car anymore. *tr.Mileage was 60000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 05, 2012.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . driving along at 50-55mph on busy road at rush hour. 2005 escape was running smoothly and all of a sudden there was a rumbling vibration and then it completely lost power and stopped. fortunately, i was driving in the right lane and was approaching a traffic light. managed to turn right at the intersection to get out of heavy flow of traffic. was able to start the car again but the rumbling continued and the car had no pick up. took vehicle to my mechanic. machine indicated a and c coils were bad. replaced a and c coils, problem still. mechanic said it might be the computer but said take car to ford dealer for diagnostic check to be sure. took car to a ford service dept. for diagnostic. was told that the problem was in the a and c coils and plugs. when i said i already had those replaced, he immediately said "then those parts must be bad and/or the wires are bad and they would have to trace all wires to find bad ones and replace them". the estimated cost for the repair $1100. i asked if the problem could be the computer. service rep said, "oh, no computer is not the problem". paid $100 for diagnostic check. took car back to my mechanic, he traced all the wires and did not find a single bad wire. according to my mechanic, the only other thing it could be, based on the way the car is acting, is the computer. i priced a computer. it costs about $495. so the quote from the dealership now makes more sense considering that the cost of the computer is about half of the $1100 they said it would cost to trace wires and replace plugs and coils. so based on the ford service dept diagnosis, conversation and quote, ford knows this is a problem with the 2005 ford escapes. my daughter and i could have been severely injured or killed because the car stopped suddenly while we were moving at 50 mph. this is a manufacture/assembly defect that should be recalled. *tr.Mileage was 220000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Feb 25, 2012.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . our 2005 ford escape has been meticulously maintained at the dealer where it was purchased. this can be verified by checking the service records at dale jarrett ford, indian trail, nc. on 2/25/12, the vehicle was diagnosed as having an oil leak between the main engine block and the crankshaft cradle. the seal between these two foundational structural parts of the engine is a simple applied bead of silicone sealant, rather than a fixed gasket. because of the location of the leak, we were told that the most cost effective repair is to completely replace the engine, rather than incur the labor charges of totally disassembling the engine to repair this seal. the projected cost for this repair is $4,000.00 to $5,000.00. we feel this is a premature and catastrophic failure of a design component of the vehicle's engine. ford motor company, by direct communication, has offered no assistance in the repair of this problem, per their company policy. our contention is that this is a defect in design and workmanship on the part of ford motor company and warrants a recall for vehicles found to have this problem. *tr.Mileage was 100839 miles.

(ford est. to repair was 3400.00) i stopped at a couple bodyshops in the area and they (knew) of this problem and could quote me the parts needed, along with the 25 hours to replace/repair it. my escape is 7 years old and has 115,000 miles, however i don't think that the body structure (in wheel well) should have rusted completely away (right side only?), leaving the top shock mount flapping back and forth, making the vehicle unsafe and (not) drivable. this problem ended up costing 2005.00 to repair. this is a safety issue that should be addressed. i called ford customer service and this was there response: i understand that you are experiencing rust issues on the right rear fender and shock mounts of your vehicle. i apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. i can also see why you feel this is a might be a common issue with the research you made. please understand, we share all of our vehicle concern documentation with national highway traffic and safety administration (nhtsa) and ford engineering. together, we work to further determine if a recall or customer satisfaction programs (csp) is needed for component failures. if a recall or csp becomes available for your vehicle, you will be notified by u.s. mail to the current address we have on file. please keep in mind that nhtsa, which is the federal agency responsible for motor vehicle safety is the only organization with the authority to order a recall or csp. in addition, i found there are no warranties, field service actions (recalls) / csps on your vehicle that would provide assistance for your current concern. ford motor company. *tr.Mileage was 115000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on June 22, 2012.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM . we were accelerating to get on the interstate when the vehicle suddenly died without warning. no telling what would have happened if we were driving at freeway speeds. we coasted to the breakdown lane and had the vehicle towed to the ford dealer who stated the computer (pcm), all the coil over plugs (cop) and spark plugs were damaged and needed replacement. this is a known issue as it is described exactly in ford service bulletin tsb 09-2-6. the spark plugs in the 2005 and 2006 cause radio frequency interference with the pcm which damages the pcm and the other components. the least ford could have done was notify us that replacing the spark plugs could have prevented this very expensive repair. the problems don't end there. a few days after the repair we were again accelerating to get on the interstate when the vehicle lost power and would not go over 50mph. we brought the vehicle back to the ford dealer who stated the catalytic converters (there are 3 of them) were clogged due to raw fuel coming in contact with the converters probably due to the previous engine problems. the cost to fix the converters is even more than the cost of the initial repair. we've decided to not have the dealer repair the vehicle as the total cost of all the repairs would exceed the value of the vehicle. we called ford customer service and they were of no help in this situation. i think ford should cover the costs of these repairs for an issue knew existed. i don't understand why there hasn't been a recall for this problem as i see that it has happened to a lot of other 2005 escapes listed in your database. i imagine we will more of these failures as these vehicles age. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 94587 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Apr 20, 2012.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN . our 2005 ford escape was purchased new in may 2005. it has been serviced by ford technicians at ford dealerships every 5,000 miles, including a recommended transmission flush last year. on a cross country trip, the suv's transmission exhibited a problem ford motor company (fmc) knows as engine stalling on engagement/stopping. according to a service bulletin dated march 19, 2007, suvs with this faulty transmission "exhibit an engine stall when coming to a stop or when engaging the engine into drive or reverse. the condition may be intermittent and often occurs after extended drives. there may be no diagnostic codes stored. this may be cause by internal wear in the torque converter which prevents it from locking." this exact failure caused us to be stranded in dangerous heat conditions for hours as we waited for help. however, fmc has known about this problem transmission since 2007, yet as an owner of a car less than two years old, i was never told about it. if i had been informed, i would have taken it years ago for repair prior to going on an extended trip and putting my family in danger. instead, fmc knowingly allowed vehicle owners to drive with this faulty transmission. ford-certified tech's failed to diagnose the problem even though they were given the exact symptoms and the potential problem, the torque converter. after techs told me the transmission was fine, the stall occurred repeatedly until total failure just over 1,200 miles later, again, stranding my family on the highway. i became aware of the fault only after a search of other drivers who experienced the same problem. fmc behaved negligently in failing to inform customers like me, likely to shield itself from costly repairs. in 2007, my car only had 24,500 miles??well within warranty limits. a recall for vehicles of this model year should be ordered and i should be refunded cost of repair. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 101000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 01, 2006.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . when the weather gets cold, the gas pedal sticks. this seems to only happen when the car is cold. you start out driving and all of a sudden the pedal won't move. you can't accelerate at all. the pedal is stuck. after a few minutes and the car warms up the pedal usually will start moving again. we have had mechanics look at it and they can't find any problems. however when they get the car it's usually warm. one mechanic thought it was related to the cruise control panel. this has been going on for years. i made sure there was no floor mat interfering too. luckily we have not been in a situation where it would cause a crash. when it happens, you have no choice but to sit on the side of the road and wait for the pedal to free itself. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMYU02Z95D.

(making things worse, the merge was from the left.) pedal was full down. after dodging go home traffic, i limped to right hand lane and got off at next ford dealership. service rep and i looked at the depression made in the plastic housing to the steering column, where pedal hardware had indented it. service said engine appeared to be operating ok; he tested it by revving the engine in the garage. he remarked the visible symptom was the pedal being so low there's no room for travel. i continued on 150 miles back home and called ford to look at the "speed control malfunction" issue. vehicle appears to accelerate ok with cruise control; the pedal is sitting so low there's no travel to accelerate. this could have been seriously dangerous - merging in metro traffic is no game. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 93000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Nov 13, 2012.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . after starting the car, the gas pedal felt like it had a brick under it. it would not move. after the car warmed up, it worked again. during the last month, this has happened in traffic, forcing me to pull off the road since i could not accelerate, several times in very heavy traffic. while driving recently, on the highway, hours after beginning my trip, the accelerator became stuck, for 2 or 3 seconds, causing me great concern. now, every morning i have to wait about 15 minutes for the pedal to free itself in order to be able to drive the vehicle. it sticks off and on at least twice during the warm up period. i don't have exact dates, but this has happened several times during the last few months intermittently and has been very frightening when it happens in traffic. this happened to me a few years ago, a time or two, but the problem went away. now it is a daily occurrence. the cooler temperature seems to be a factor. i am reluctant to bring the vehicle to a ford dealer since i have read many postings from people who have been unsuccessful getting the problem corrected, even after spending a sizeable amount of money. additionally, i cant find any evidence that ford has any idea how to correct the problem. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 95000 miles.

Ford Escape 2005 Vehicle Speed Control Review #10486292

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Nov 22, 2012.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . recurrent problem: the sudden inability to accelerate because the gas pedal won't budge. the throttle cable is binding somewhere. a couple of years ago the throttle cable snapped on our 2005 ford escape, breaking off behind the accelerator pedal inside the cabin. (we had taken the car in for this hard-to-press-gas-pedal problem when the car was very new, and at the time the dealership did not discover the cause and could not reproduce the problem.) after it snapped, the cable was replaced by the ford dealership at our (considerable) expense. now the gas pedal is once again refusing to budge several times on each drive, and we have to take the vehicle in again for inspection. the sudden inability to accelerate increases the likelihood of rear-end collisions. if the throttle cable binds as you're merging onto a highway, a high speed rear-end collision could occur. if you're unable to accelerate as you're crossing a road where cross traffic does not have to stop, you can be a sitting duck for a broadside collision. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 114000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Aug 01, 2012.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . in aug 2012 we were on our way back from a vacation and our abs light came on, along with a flashing 4x4 light. we had no idea what it was or what to do. the vehicle drove fine and stopped fine, except for a couple of times it felt as if the abs engaged on dry cement. we stopped to eat and shop for a few hours and the lights were off when we got back in the vehicle. they didn't come on again until a few days ago (jan 2013). however, i had been complaining to my husband recently that the brakes didn't seem to work right. i hit ice and the abs didn't engage ..no light either..but the grinding sound once in awhile was still there. so we took it in and put it on the computer to diagnose the problem. came back with 2 codes u2023 and c1234. which means the right front tone ring is bad. after searching the internet, i found this to be a very common problem. also got under the truck and sure enough the tone ring is cracked and spinning around loosely. the safety issue here is the abs will lock up randomly on dry cement when you start to apply your brakes. which then you can't completely control your vehicles direction and if you take your foot off the break to control your vehicle, then you may hit someone or something. i am thankful for all the info i have found so when it gets repaired they can't screw me over. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 90000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 08, 2011.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i am just glad that when the car died, i was just pulling into a parking garage. all i could think of was what could have happened if i was going the 55 mph speed limit minutes earlier. very heavy braking, manual steering. i think ford wants someone to die in a few crashes before they will come out with a recall. i had to wait 2 weeks for a re-manufactured computer as they were heavily back-ordered. this indicates that a lot more people than just 32 or so have had this problem. i had to pay for 3 weeks or car rentals and only got to pay what i did because of family ties to the ford dealer. it would have been over $2800 dollars if parts and labor were charged retail. ford knew there were problems by issuing two tbs, yet they preferred to let us pay for their error. i found out that ford may repair it if it had less than 80,000 miles and less than 8 years old. how many people need to be in accidents before this vehicle is recalled? *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 98562 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 06, 2013.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SUSPENSION . as i was driving over the weekend with my husband and 2 young children i noticed a loud banging noise in the back of my vehicle. when i checked the right rear wheel area i noticed the inner and outer wheel house were completely rusted through, so much so that the shock was hitting the inside of my vehicle as it had nothing to attach to anymore. i noticed road debris inside my vehicle when i pulled up the carpet. i looked at it with several co-workers who have been in the insurance industry for 10-15 years, stating they had never in their lives seen something like this. i started to do some research online and found a shocking amount of the same complaints for this year/made/model, most of them recent. i am extremely upset with ford for not recognizing this as a manufacturer defect as it is clear that it is. my family and i could have been killed if the shock went straight through the floor. i called tousley ford where i brought the vehicle and the woman simply said, "well, there isn't a recall on it so you have to pay for it". this is going to cost me thousands of dollars, thousands of dollars for a manufacturer defect that is not being recognized by ford. astounding. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 115000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on June 01, 2013.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SUSPENSION . while driving my ford escape, the right rear shock punched through the right rear fender well becoming unattached. after further inspection the fender well and part of the shock mount was completely rusted out and unable to support the shock. i have notified the ford dealer and ford's customer relations and was told they know of no problem and that the car is out of warranty and nothing they can do. after researching this problem on the web, i've found a number of ford escape owners who have the same right rear fender well rust problems. this leads me to believe that it must be ford manufacturing defect in rust proofing their materials and they should stand behind their products. there should be a recall before someone gets hurt. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 110000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on July 09, 2013.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . while driving on interstate, hit a bump and heard loud sound on right rear side of vehicle. after i stopped to inspect, found that the right rear strut had no support as the right rear inner panel was corroded all the way through with very thin metal around the entire area. luckily the strut did not come up through interior. seems very unsafe and likely to cause accident if driven. this appears to a manufacturers defect as the corrosion protection was not applied correctly. i called ford motor customer service and they just indicated that there we no recalls yet on this problem. this seems to be a problem on the 2004-2005 ford escapes on the right rear. i took to body shop and have estimates from $1,400 to $1,700 to repair. the vehicle is in very good shape except for this one obvious defect. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 112100 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on June 26, 2013.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with WHEELS . i had been hearing some loud noises from the back end of my car for a week or so, we had thought the spare tire and equipment hadn't been put back properly so we re-adjusted it and thought we had fixed the problem. a few days later the sound started back up. then it got really loud and there was a loud pop. upon further investigation, we found out the entire wheel well had rusted out in a perfect circle around the shock. the shock was no longer attached to the car. i took it to ford and they told me this had been recalled on their mini-vans for the same year. ford body shop staff informed me that this was the only rust on my vehicle and this rust would not be caused by mis-treatment of the vehicle nor normal wear and tear of any car. ford is currently unable to get the wheel house to fix the car and it will not be available for "months". once i researched this a little more, it appears to be a highly common problem in the 2005 ford escapes. the car is not currently fixable or drive able. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 155000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 09, 2013.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with STEERING . this safety issue requires immediate attention by both the nhtsa and ford: 61 nhtsa complaints filed to date: '04- 16; '05- 45. vehicle taken to ford dealership for service. service notified that a forward lower ball joint was failing, no other defects were noted in the detailed visual inspection. it was replaced two days later. the following day of the repair, on a daily commute between tol to dtw, the right rear shock tower separated while driving at 70 mph. vehicle began dog-tracking. initial inspection did not reveal the hidden damage caused by corrosion at the welded seams of the inner wheel well due to an underbody coating. upon removing the undercoating, very easily by hand, two large sections removed, revealed the shock was penetrating the interior of the vehicle and was no longer being structurally supported by the vehicles uni-body frame. the large sections removed would have caused tire failure at highway speeds by puncture or hazard to other following vehicles. the separation of the shock tower from the body, did cause the vehicle to jerk at the time of failure, creating a loud popping sound and causing potential hazard as the vehicle steered into other lanes of traffic at highway speeds (70 mph). the vehicle is rendered inoperable due to the catastrophic nature of the failure. local ford dealership states they are uncomfortable repairing the structure and not aware of any manufacture recalls. in contacting their sister dealership, they have previously repaired this defect, and continued on stating this failure is a known issue with 2004 - 2006 escapes. the failed panel is available, p/n:part 7l827827886a. a reinforcement piece is also available. see example picture here: http://imageshack.us/a/img854/6430/wheelwell2.jpg facebook site concerning this safety issue: www.facebook.com/pages/2005-ford-escape-2004-2006/397923900236108. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 126000 miles.

FORD ESCAPE 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 02, 2013.FORD ESCAPE 2005, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . the right rear wheel well has rusted out. this makes it a huge safety factor because at anytime the shocks can break free and bust upward into my truck. i took my 2005 ford escape to my mechanic and he said that in the last 2 months he had seen 4-5 2005 ford escapes with the same problem. it is all the same right rear wheel well. there is a facebook page with 195000 members following it so i know that i am not alone. problem is that half of the country is not in an area that has rust. so southern ford escape owners are not going to be affected by this. this cannot be ignored because not all 2005 ford escape owners have this problem. environmental conditions would show you that all 2005 ford escapes would have this if put to the same environmental factors. this needs a recall. it is an easy fix. ford already fixed it with the newer models. just weld in a new right rear wheel well. this is frustrating because i know it is a real problem with this model, but the environment is what is saving this from being a national issue. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 125000 miles.
