My wife, granddaughter and myself were in our 2017 ford escape SE. When we were hit in drivers door by someone traveling 65 mph run the stop sign. Car rolled 3 times and we walked away with little or no injuries. Not saying we were perfect
After leaving hospital but we are alive and doing well. Thanks you ford for the safe car. We bought a new one.

I am leasing a 2016 Escape. In the process of me moving, I lost my paper work and therefore did not remember what my allowed mileage was, so I called the Ford Motor Co. to get my mileage. The person whom I spoke with Feb.spoke with gave me the wrong informationf this year told me my allowed mileage was 38,000 miles.

In trying to turn my car in recently and get a new one, I find out that my allowed mileage is actually 34,145 The person I spoke with gave me the wrong information..So I’m thinking I have some time before I need to turn it in..So of course when I found out today Dec.29, 2017 my actual allowance, I was shocked because of the misinformation given, I am now over my allowance.

I should not have to pay for the extra mileage due to the fact i was given wrong information. I tired to explain this to one of the supervisors at Ford Motor Co. when I called, but she wasn’t trying to help me at all. All she could say was I have to pay for the extra mileage. Her first name is Andrea she did not give me her last name.

It was someone in your company who gave out wrong information I would have taken the truck in awhile back if I had been given correct information and on top of that, they didn’t even record on my account that I called. Whomever this person was, and I wish I had gotten a name, is very incompetent and I should not have to pay for their mistakes

Now based on the incorrect information I was given, I was and still am preparing to turn in the truck in Feb 2018 and would not be over 38,000 miles. Again this is the information I was given when I called in Feb. of this year,

So because none of this is my fault, I need to be able to turn the truck in this Feb 2018 without any penalty.

In May I went on line looking for a new
vehicle I was redirected to Chapman Ford,
at the time still at old location, to look at
inventory, ask questions and maybe buy a
new auto. I was contacted by one of their
sales agents. My first question was, does the
2017 Ford Focus, they had in stock on web
site, have the problem with the automatic
transmission, the SEAL failure, that ended
in a loss to Ford in the lawsuit that everyone
has been talking about. This is the one
where the seal on the transmission failing
causing leakage and then causing clutch
failure, slippage etc.. He stated absolutely
not! None of the 2017 models have that
problem. So my wife and I went to the
dealer to check out the auto we previewed
on their web site. Again, We both asked
does this transmission have the transmission
that fails with a leakage do to seal failure
and again he stated that he checked with his
people and absolutely this auto does not
have that and will not have that problem. I
purchased this vehicle on GOOD faith that
evening and I now have had this 2017 ford
focus in their NEW location at the 101, shop
twice, THEIR paper work I have shows,
FIRST; IN:10/23/17, 3266 miles, OUT:
10/25/17, 3271miles and SECOND;
IN:11/02/17, 3352 miles, OUT 11/03/17,
miles 3352 (notice only 12 days and on the
second re-repair, the miles have not changed
IN-OUT, how did they do a road test before
repair and then after, my conclusion is they
knew what the issue was and addressed it).
Both times, within less then 100 miles, for
the transmission. Here is what has happened.
Auto NEW, is 6 months, 3266 miles. The
auto in highway driving stops working. With
NO control of speed I was almost rear ended
by a truck and could have been KILLED. It
also, from a stop light/sign would slip going
into gears ( never Heavy
accelerating/flooring the pedal) . I called
CHAPMAN, made appointment, brought
auto in. A couple days of them working on
auto received call from their very nice
service writer to state FIXED. On the
description papers print out it stated Tech,
Richard Sutton (208) worked both times on
vehicle, FIRST time, drove/tested vehicle
and concluded the computer had to be re
educated, his words:
PERFORMED ADAPTIVE RE-LEARN
PROCEDURE TO RESET SHIFT POINTS.
ROAD TESTED VECHICLE AND
FOUND TRANS NO LONGER HAS
JERKY SHIFTING FRON(FROM) 1st TO
2nd GEAR. TRANS SHIFTS ARE
NORMAL. IT WILL TAKE A COUPLE
HUNDRED MILES OF TRANS SHIFT
STRAGEGIES TO RE-LEARN. TRANS
SHIFT FEEL AND NOISES SHOULD
DIMINISH AS RE-LEARN
OCCURS.TRANSMISSION IS
OPERATING NORMALLY AT THIS
TIME. This is MY conclusion this answer
only is for the computer to help with
monitoring MPG so the auto gives its BEST.
It does not control the failure of the SEAL, a
part! Well on the way home the
transmission reacted exactly has it did
before they re-learned/retrained/performed
the adaptive re-learn procedure. I called they
stated give it a couple of days. Again I am
on the highway again the transmission goes
away nothing just a revving engine.
Avoiding a collision. I coast to a stop after
almost getting rear ended and KILLED
again. I immediately call Chapman Ford was
told bring it in, but there was no one there,
because it was Friday so bring it in Monday.
I did and The NEW paper work states, Seal
Failure causing CLUCH failure. The
tech(208) stated he drove/tested vehicle and
these are now his words.
ROAD TESTED VEHICLE AND FOUND TRANS SHIFT FLAR ON UPSHIFTS.
MONITORED PIDS WHILE DRIVING-FOUND SHIFT FLARE ON 1-2 AND 3-4

PROCEDURE AND ROAD TESTED VEHICLE –OK. TRANS IS OPERATING
NORMALLYAT THIS TIME. IT WILL TAKE A COUPLE THOSANDMILES OF NORMAL
DRIVING FOR NEW CLUTCH TO BREAK IN. TRANSSHIFT FEEL AND NOISE SHOULD
DIMINISH AS BREAK IN OCCURS.
The most alarming part to this, is when I looked at my odometer in showed the
miles they stated 3352! The same it came in with!
This is a WARNING to ALL consumers of this dealer CHAPMAN FORDs practices.
The sales agent misrepresented/lied with his answer to my query and the service,
well you can see they in their own paper work make me and it should you never do
any purchases from this dealership. SO SAD!

I just called the customer service line to inquire about a recall on my 2008 Ford Escape. The power steering is defaulty, not to mention the throttle. I have done so much research on the throttle, after my daughter and I almost died last weekend. I pulled out into traffic and not only did I not have any power steering out of the blue, but my car would not change from 1st to 2nd gear and I had no power and the car almost shut down in the middle of the road. There is an “extended customer sanctification program” for this issue however, even the the hwy safety depart found the faulty parts were in 2001-2017 Escapes, Ford decided to only extend the remedy to 2009 and up, because this was the bare minimum they had to do to avoid a recall. I called today to find out about my car and the lady told me to get into my car and take it to a dealership. What? I just got done telling you that my car shut down with no power, no power steering and Ford’s response is to get back in the car? The closest “approved” dealership is 85 miles from my home. What a joke of company. Glad to know that Ford is willing to lose customers over they ridiculous customer service, but they are also ok losing them to death.

I have driven a 1997 F-150 for 19.5yrs and was very satisfied but finally had to retire her. Not one complaint did I have regarding this vehicle. My wife drives an Escape and my daughter drives a Focus. I recently purchased a 2009 F-15O in full confidence in this model and Ford Co. Less than one year of owning this vehicle I have not had one moment of peace. It all started within one month of driving it off the lot. I had to get the driver seat electrical system changed not once, not twice but three times and it is now in need of repairs AGAIN. The driver side heater quit working. I have had to repair the timing mechanism TWICE (once on each side) and now I’m in need of a new engine due to faulty cam shaft and everything that goes with it, including poor oil pressure. I was told by two different Mechanic Companies that Ford Motor Co. was fully aware of the timing mechanism defects on F-150’s from 2009-2014.
I called Ford Motor Co and received NO help, NO assistance and definitely NO resolution. I have now decided that I want nothing to do with a company of this magnitude who can’t even discuss options…..So I and my family are cutting all ties with Ford. We are now selling all three vehicles.
Thanks Ford

I’ve bought an F250 and focus in 2015 brand new. Buy vehicles from ford for the last 20 years and never had so many problems as i-85. Having with the focus. This car is dangerous and when you drive it off the lot seems as if you already lost 10 grand when you sign the papers. Worst transmission in the world and ford won’t do much about it. The service stinks and this may be my last ford ever. Looking in the Chevy world now. Thanks for no help getti g me out of this piece of crap. My next 20 years from the service I’m getting will be with another line of vehicles.

How is it that you just get a 2015 Ford Explorer and the battery goes out on you and it’s no good after 43,000 miles and then you have to end up buying a brand new battery and then they tell you it’s not even much covered under the warranty that’s why I don’t do Ford cars I regret buying it it’s been almost 30 years since I bought a Ford car so I decide to go back and try them again and all I’ve been having was trouble after trouble with this car as soon as I can trade in it will be gone

The ford place in sevierville,TN is an awful place they had my car for 2 days to see what was wrong with it and couldnt figure out what it was they charged me 120.00 for dialysis but didnt tell me ahead of time that i would have to pay that they said since my car is under warranty its free to check it. They said they think its something in the turbo thats causing it to vibrate when i drive but there not sure. I only had the car for a year it only has 43,000 miles on it with a 100,000 mile warranty so why am i having issues with my car so soon and why cant the tech tell me whats wrong with it. If i dont get my car fixed the right way and my money back i will go to an attorney over this its ridiculous the staff was ruder than ever made me feel like a worthless pos so i demamd awnser

Never in all the years I have owned a vehicle, have I ever had to replace left and right front ball joints! The cost was over $800.00!!!! I only have my vehicle brand new from 2008 to present (Ford Escape 2008 XLT) with only 81,000 miles only traveling once to Georgia the rest of the time to work (which is only 10 miles from my home) I love my Ford Escape!!!!
Has anyone else complained about replaced ball joints at low mileage and on the road travel? I would like Ford to reimburse me the $800!!!

Sincerely,
