  1. I now have 1800 miles on my Hybrid Escape and I am very happy with it. It's hard not to like 50+ MPG. I drive mostly in ECO mode and I love the brake hold feature,that keeps the brake on until the accelerator is depressed. I have noticed the front window are making a groaning noise when rolled up or down. Other than that I am very happy with my Escape.
  2. I'm very happy with it. I went from an Explorer so it will take a little to get used to it. This is my 3rd hybrid and it is the best so far. It's quiet except for the government added noise. I only have 150 miles on it so far, but will be going on a 1000 mile trip soon and will post my feeling then.
  3. Thanks for that information. I took the Escape out on a country road and you can hear the noise in drive when under 20 mph. Again thanks.
  4. Mine has a build date of 12-3 and it still has the noise after 200 miles, it sounds like music. yours makes 4 that I heard of.
  5. I just talked with the dealer they went to another dealer that had a similar Titanium AWD Hybrid and put in reverse and it has the same noise. I'm off to pick it up. I will post an update when I have a few miles on it. Thanks for all the input.
  6. I was thinking a reverse beeper, but it is only noticeable on the right side by the wheel. Was it a hybrid you test drove or a regular gas one? I will see tomorrow when the dealer calls.
  7. I went to pick up my 2020 Escape Hybrid last friday and when I test drove it I found that there was a humming, noise coming from the right rear wheel. The noise can be heard inside but is louder when standing outside by the wheel The noise is noticeable in electric or gas mode, when the reverse gear is selected, it is there when the brake is on or when the escape is moving in reverse. it is fine in all other gears and when driving the noise is only there when in reverse. I did not accept the Escape and will wait if the dealer can find the cause.

    I like the spoiler,but I am concerned that when it is taken through a soft cloth automatic car wash it will get damaged , ripped off. How far off the center line would the screws, if used, be located?

    2013 Escape Leaking Roof

    This is not a pattern. There is one that has a leak, one that does not, and one that has yet to be delivered. Even if there is another one on another forum it still does not make a pattern. Now if there were multiply Escapes with this problem then we could find a pattern, but there are just to few to call this a pattern.
