    2018 25K 1.5L EB Coolant loss

    You're welcome. My advice to you is get used to frequently checking the level of the coolant over-flow tank. Mine never got to the point of throwing an error code, it was caught by the Tech during a Works service. HRG

    2018 25K 1.5L EB Coolant loss

    Here's the TSB HRG
  3. This post of yours is pretty unbelievable; 1) For all the hot air you spew about how great Eco-Boost motors are, YOU bought a 3.7NA for your wife. 2) For a guy that constantly tells people to spend extra money on extended warranties, YOU don't follow your own advice. Do me a favor, don't bother responding to anymore of my postings. You have NO credibility. HRG
  4. I wish my pockets were as deep as yours. Hopefully, your loyalty will continue even if your MKX pukes the motor after the warranty expires, and you have to pay for the repair. Keep an eye on that coolant level sir,,, HRG

    ‘20 Escape Impressions

    For an SE, the content isn't bad. Heated front seats, Sync3 w/8" screen, 360 with BLIS. 3 items that are important to me. HRG
  6. EXACTLY!!!! I'm in the same position now with the 1.5L Eco-BOOM in my 2018 Escape. 2 years & 25K old, and it's at the dealer for 3 weeks now getting a new short block, 1 of 5 that the dealer is working on with the same problem. There is no way in good conscience that I could possibly keep this vehicle after the 5yr/60K powertrain warranty expires, and risk having to pay for this myself, or have to invest more money into the vehicle by purchasing an extended warranty. Unfortunately, with Ford's insistence of using this technology, and as attractive my opportunity of using the Z-Plan is, I will probably have to look elsewhere. HRG

    It's a 200A SE. I'm as curious about the 3-cyl as you are,,, HRG

    ‘20 Escape Impressions

    Well, I've got a 2020 in the garage. The dealer that is putting the new engine in my '18 asked me to bring the Fusion back, and swap it for this. So, I'll have a week or so test drive that I wasn't expecting. HRG
  9. with a 1/2 hour to go, C'mon baby, MAKE ME SOME MONEY!!!!! HRG
  10. I wonder if anyone has been able to determine if any losses have occurred as far as resale/trade-in value? With all the negative press on these vehicles, I can't imagine that people are running out to purchase used ones. HRG

    Explorer misses top safety mark

    Maybe to the trained eye, but thankfully one of my local dealers had a '20 parked next to a '19, so I could compare visual cues. The first thing i look for now is the rear-side window, to see if the roof is falling-off, compared to the "parallel" design of the prior generation. HRG
  13. With the loaner Fusion (192") we've had for the last couple weeks, here's all the room we have left to walk past it. Her Escape fit much better. I hate these new garages,,,,, HRG
  14. With so many GDO's having WiFi connectivity (like my Chamberin MyQ) this has be a no-brainer. Heck, my WiFi extends out of the house, the vehicle could connect to the home network if needed. HRG
