    2017 Escape Titanium

    Transmission fixed for $4k. Ford Escape is crap quality. I've went from 92 Ranger to 96 Taurus to 2001 Taurus Wagon to 2005 Freestar to 2007 Explorer to 2013 Taurus to 2017 Escape. No looking at Honda Accord/Subaru Legacy for next car.
  2. Why Ford's CEO Is Exceedingly Frustrated With The Company (msn.com) How many Bronco Sports, Mavericks, Bronco, s F 150 etc. could have been sold if supply was there? Crossroads Ford Apex that used to have 100's in the large indoor show room, had 10 cars last time i was there.

    2017 Escape Titanium

    Would the recall I had done: have caused this? it doesn't seem like it. Recall below NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 22V413000 Report Date: JUN 09, 2022 Vehicles Affected: 2925968 Consequence: A damaged or missing bushing may prevent the vehicle from shifting into the intended gear, and cause the vehicle to move in an unexpected direction. Additionally, the vehicle may roll after the driver selects the 'Park' position. Either scenario increases the risk of a crash or injury. What You Should Do: Dealers will replace the under hood shift bushing and add a protective cap over the shift cable bushing, free of charge. Interim owner notification letters, informing owners of the safety risk, were mailed July 1, 2022. Remedy parts are expected to be available in 4th Quarter 2022. Owner notification letters were mailed October 27, 2022. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 22S43. Summary: Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2013-2019 Escape, 2013-2018 C-Max, 2013-2016 Fusion, 2013-2021 Transit Connect, and 2015-2018 Edge vehicles. The bushing that attaches the shifter cable to the transmission may degrade or detach.

    2017 Escape Titanium

    Small block replaced under warranty at 45,000 miles due to coolant issue. Door bottoms rusting (I'm in NC, so no salt) but not rusted thru so not covered under rust thru warranty. I fixed myself with Dremel and rust inhibiter and touch up paint. Transmission just went at 101,000. Taking to local transmission place to rebuild. So, the car seats are great, I've liked it, so other than the engine, transmission, and rust it's been a good car. (LOL) I've drove Fords since 1992, a lot of miles, and I'm about done.

    Transmission Acting Up

    2017 titanium 1.5 l. mine was shuddering, twice thunked pretty hard going into reverse and 2 times starting at a stop light. Flushed transmission fluid as i was at 100k. it was good for 2 days then a whirling sound and couldn't find gear. Ive parked it, and looking for good repair places. Got a company car to drive in mean time. i had the short block replaced under warranty due to coolant issue. I've had Fords since 1992. I'm getting close to the end with Fords.

    2017 Escape Headlights quit working

    It was the plastic piece that the bulb plugs into, both had gone bad. Local Ford service fixed, and at the same time they fixed a recall on transmission linkage (?). I had got that letter, but it said parts were not in yet. Parts had just come in, but letters hadn't gone out yet. That was great, as it saves me a 2nd trip to do that. Great service. Crossroads Ford Apex, NC.

    Dropping off today at local Ford dealer for diagnostic. By the way this is the for dealer in Cary/Apex NC that at a point had the largest indoor show room. It might still be. It used to have over + 100 cars inside, on Friday at had 10. If i would have been there to buy a car, it would have been a sad situation.
  9. bulbs are not the issue. small light on dash that shows lights are on, says they are on. what is going on?
  10. i listen to am in morning for live traffic. What can it cost to have am radio? id still like a cd option. my 2017 escape has a cd player.
  11. Sad that Ford has good cars people want, Bronco, Bronco Sport, Maverick and of course Explorer, F150, Super duty, and they cant get them to the lots for reason after reason. My local Ford dealers lots are still basically empty.

    Maverick HIGH Demand for Hybrids?

    Too bad to have a vehicle people want to buy, and you cant find a way to build them . Say Goodbye to the 2023 Ford Maverick (msn.com)
  14. Looking to replace 2007 Explorer with 262,000 miles. Which Explorer engine/trans combo is the best to look for? looking for one with under 40K miles.
  15. Update. I still have the 2007 Eddie Bauer. it just passed 260,000 miles. I drove it from 2007 to 2015 daily, then just weekends from 2015-17 when my son turned 16 (in 2017) and started using it for HS. He is still driving it in college. This summer he had an internship in Texas, so him and I drove from NC to Texas then i flew back in May, then did the reverse in Aug, last weekend. No issues, ran smooth still. Leather seats are in good shape, no tears. a few minor plastic pieces have broke over the years, (the sun glass holder, the knob for rear air). I had transmission work done at 175,000 miles. considering its never been kept in the garage paint still looks good. Plastic at top of door/bottom of window is faded. Recent picture on the way to Texas in May.
