  1. Just read this today! I wonder who screwed up! So far, only 6 vehicles reported the problem! https://www.newsmax.com/finance/streettalk/ford-recall-gear-rollaway-escape/2022/06/15/id/1074506/

    Direct Injection Cleaning Kit

    Thanks bbf2530 for your response. I don't want to damage the components but was wondering if there are any alternatives to this carbon issue on Direct Injection engines? At least , your timing was perfect, since we get our oil change on Thursday.

    Direct Injection Cleaning Kit

    My daughter's 2019 Edge has a 2.0 Eco boost engine. The dealer recommended we have the Direct Injection Cleaning done with her oil change. ($100) I heard from others it could affect the turbo during the cleaning. Any suggestions. Thanks!

    2017 Cmax Hybrid Battery life!

    As always, thanks for the information. I think the batteries at the Ford dealer are around $139 or so. I'll wait till the next oil change and get a battery!

    2017 Cmax Hybrid Battery life!

    Thanks! I should be more specific, since the Cmax has 2 separate batteries...I meant the 'engine start up battery.'
  6. Anyone know when I should consider replacing my small battery on my 2017 Cmax Hybrid (Less than 22,000 miles)? It runs fine but would enjoy comments....pricing!
  7. I looked at the latest plant build schedule. Do you have any information?
  8. It looks like there is no current Maverick production. Anyone know when they will start up the production again? Ordered the 2022 vehicle in November. Dealer has no information.

    My Key FOB Not Working

    I noticed the dash screen on my Cmax indicating "no key detected" when trying to start my car the last few days. I now cannot remote start my car or lock my doors with the key fob! I have a second key fob that I am using now! So, anyone know if the inoperable key fob require a battery.....? It's 4 years old!

    2021-22 Escape 1.5 T New

    Thanks for the info!
  12. Is the 2021-22 Escape 1.5 T 3 Cylinder engine the new version and different than the previous 1.5 in the 2019 Model?
  13. I was looking for an alternative to protect the front area of my vehicle from gnats, bugs, etc...other than the usual recommendation of bras! 😩 Has anyone used products like 'Elastiwrap' clear coat spray? It's a plasticizer coating that you can spray on and peel off. It stops the bugs and most small stone chips!

    Cmax Oil Change

    Just turned into my 12th month since my last oil change with only 3500 miles driven and the iOLM popped up recommending an oil change! I took the Cmax in to the dealer yesterday for the Quick Lane $50 Oil/Filter change! The tech guy said he wasn't sure what generated the alert...probably the one year duration. I recall some car gurus encourage oil changes on low mileage cars because of the condensation caused by not running the engine to sufficient temperatures. The car manual had no information! I guess once a year isn't bad! I think I'll start driving the long way home once a week! 😊
  15. Does anyone know what percentage of the approximately 90,000 U.S. white-collar retirees and former employees who opted for the lump-sum payment Ford initially offered in the 2012 'Pension Buyout Program?'
