Ford Escort 1996 Seat Belts Review #716393

FORD ESCORT 1996 car safety problem was reported on Dec 17, 1999.FORD ESCORT 1996, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SEAT BELTS . the motor driven shoulder harness stopped in a forward position, making the shoulder harness unusable. it stopped in a position where you would bump your head on the belt lock as you entered the vehicle. i have talked with other escort owners that have had the same failure. given the amount of money paid to crash victims of much older vehicles, i think it is incumbent upon the manufacturer to guarantee the safety of passengers by providing a restraint system that works correctly for at least the average lifetime of a vehicle, not just three years. by the way, after being charged $250 for a repair, the belt worked once before failing again. should i be in an accident between now and monday when i can return to the dealers, i will not be protected by a shoulder harness. being that an escort is such a small car, i believe i'm at significant risk of injury should an accident occur. these kinds of failures should be fixed free, no questions asked. *ak.Ford Escort 1996 problem was reported in WESTLAND, MI.

FORD ESCORT 1996 car safety problem was reported on Jan 01, 2004.FORD ESCORT 1996, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SEAT BELTS:FRONT . my 1996 ford escort's driver side shoulder belt won't move to the locked position on the b-pillar. it is stuck toward the rear of the track just past the upper bend in the track. *ak i disconnected the electrical wiring harness following the owner's manual. the shoulder belt would not move manually when i used the emergency handle turning it clockwise. everything i tried to move this into position has not worked. i went to the dealer. they said it isn't a recall item but the person in the parts department said the should harness is a frequent problem with escorts. he did not have all of the parts in stock. i went to several car repair facilities inclucing suburban ford in waterford, mi. everyone said this is a very costly repair because the interior body would have to be dismantled to get to the source of the problem. i also spent a good deal of time online tonight researching whether this shoulder belt problem is common. bingo. stuck, stalled, sticking driver side shoulder retstraint complaints are common for the 1996 ford escort. i consider this a serious safety issue and escorts should be recalled to repair this as soon as possible. i work for a fire department and a malfunctioning or non-functioning shoulder harness during an accident could be the cause of death or serious disability. many of the complaints i reviewed complained that the shoulder harness was stuck in the same position mine is. this stinks of a design flaw. how do i get ford motor to accept responsibility and make this repair at their expense? .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):3FASP11J6TR.

FORD ESCORT 1996 car safety problem was reported on May 21, 2005.FORD ESCORT 1996, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SEAT BELTS:REAR . we are the owners of a 1996 ford escort wagon vin: [xxx]. we have been the only owners of this vehicle. we are writing to complain about the failure of the lap shoulder safety belts in the rear seat on both sides. both of the rear lap shoulder belt retractor mechanisms have failed within a short time of each other. this means the seat belts will no longer retract or pull tight when someone tries to use the rear seat belts. the reason we feel compelled to complain about this failure is that until around 9 months ago, we rarely (a handful of times at the most) used the rear lap shoulder seat belts. in august 2004 we switched our son's car seat over to a booster seat, moved the seat from the middle to the driver's side and started using the lap shoulder safety belt. in early november we were forced to move our son's booster seat to the passenger side because the driver's side belt failed to retract and was unusable. today we were driving home in our car when we heard a loud metallic noise from the rear of the car, and we noticed that there was something wrong with our son's lap shoulder seat belt. when we stopped to see what the problem was we discovered that the same thing that happened to the driver's side lap shoulder seat belt had happened to the passenger side one as well. so, in the nine months since we switched over to the two point system on our son's booster seat, where the seat belt was regularly deployed and retracted, the retractor mechanism has broken on both sides. this seems like a suspiciously concurrent event. we believe the retractor mechanisms on the rear seat belts were either defective or were installed incorrectly when our car was built. both mechanism broke while the seat belt was on our son, not while we were putting on the seat belt. the seat belt was already buckled and in place when they failed. *js information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6).0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 89535 miles.

Ford Escort 1996 Tires

Ford Escort 1996 Tires Review #10348239

FORD ESCORT 1996 car safety problem was reported on July 30, 2010.FORD ESCORT 1996, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with TIRES . my wife & i have a 1996 ford escort wagon that we purchased used in 2008. at the time of purchase it had a set of 4 bridgestone insignia sl tires that still had reasonable tread depth remaining, so we decided to continue to use the tires until the tread had worn down more and needed replacing. on friday, july 30, 2010, my wife was driving down the freeway at approximately 70 mph when part of the rear passenger-side tire tread separated from the tire and shot against the sheet metal on the inside of the wheel well. it ripped a large hole in the vehicle┐s sheet metal, shot many small pieces of tire through the hole into the interior cargo area in the rear of the vehicle, and caused the vehicle to stall at the same time. thankfully my wife was able to handle the car during this catastrophic event and successfully maneuver it onto the shoulder of the freeway. we had the car towed home since it would no longer start, and when it arrived i noticed the large hole that had been made inside the wheel well by the tread separation. the tire still had pressure, but at that time i saw that about half of the tread was completely missing. since the ford escort has its fuel cutout switch installed against the passenger-side wheel well, i checked to see if that had tripped and it had. once it was reset the car was able to start and the engine ran normally. as a result of this catastrophic tire failure my wife was placed in an incredibly dangerous situation, stranded on the road, and significant damage was done to our vehicle. it is my understanding as a former automotive engineer that tire failures of this kind are not acceptable and any tire that is susceptible to this failure must not be used. i have replaced all 4 tires with new tires of a different brand and am working on having the car repaired. approximately 2 weeks prior to this event i had checked the pressure in all 4 tires and had inflated them just under the maximum listed on the side of the tire (44 psi). *tr.Mileage was 151600 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FASP15J2SW. Ford Escort 1996 problem was reported in MANCHESTER, MI. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

Ford Escort 1996 Seat Belts Review #10459733

FORD ESCORT 1996 car safety problem was reported on May 03, 1999.FORD ESCORT 1996, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SEAT BELTS . i am adding another complaint to the vast list of previous complaints regarding my 1996 ford escort and the failure of my passive restraint shoulder belt. it has been giving me problems for probably the last 8-10 years. it would intermittently stop mid-track and "bouncing" the door against the hinge would get it to move. two weeks ago, it stopped dead in the middle of the track. i, too, could hear the motor trying to make it go. i left it alone and about 4 days later, it resumed operating. now a week later, it has frozen again, a little more forward in the track than previously. i am dishearten to learn that others who have tried the process explained in the owner's manual to manually move the belt in the track has failed. i am at a loss as to why ford, having been notified of so many complaints regarding this same exact failure of their safety equipment, has chosen to ignore it! i will never buy another ford product if this is evidence of how they treat their faithful customers! can anything be done about this??? *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 30000 miles.
