Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2007 Ford Escape looks pretty good compared to other Ford Escape model years, but still has a trend of transmission problems, so it's not a model year we can recommend.

Also the base model Escape did not come with side airbags so it received a "Poor" rating from the IIHS for side impact protection. Other similar 2007 models like the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V & Hyundai Santa Fe scored far better.

While I was sleeping, a second Continental tire blew up and damaged the drivers side quarter panel severely. The explosion woke neighbors 2 streets over. My car had been parked for 13 hours and the conditions were 55 degrees and rainy. Contacted Continental tires and they are only willing to repair the drivers side of my vehicle because I didn't save the blown tire to mail to them.

2007 Ford Escape tire stems are fractured, the rubber is not holding up. I have replaced one and noticed a second tire loosing pressure. Upon inspecting it and the remaining stems they all require replacing. This has the potential of creating a severe accident. I feel these should be recalled, now. My local dealer mentioned that Ford did send a postcard out telling owners to look at their tire stems. However, I did not receive one.

My sister owned a 2007 fird Escape. There was a tire issue fixed Sept. 2008 at mass tire brockton. After they fixed her tire, we experienced so loud, unsteady issue with the tires. We brought it back and there was valve work done. On Oct. 08, 2008, my sister died on the highway after her car rolled over attempting to switch lanes. She was alone.

Bought a 2007 Ford edge in May 2007 with Continental tires cross contact LX 24560R18 in a option package with a 17 inch spare. Very shortly after the purchase had car at dealer for vibration. Dealer balanced all 4 tires. Went back second time for tire vibration mechanic and dealer claimed it was normal tire operation. At 40 mph slight vibration as speed is increased 70 mph it was more prevalent. It was not a smooth riding tire never felt this with any other vehicle we have purchased. Feel this could be a dangerous problem with Continental reputation and only 300 miles on vehicle at that time and now close to 1000 miles now. Need NHTSA to investigate this tire because of dealers and Ford neglect. Do not know if it is the tires or the vehicle. With Ford's problem with their tires in the past and with the injuries and deaths that had occurred I think this is a very serious problem that needs to be looked at by NHTSA and Ford. Rode in another Ford edge with the same tires with the owner of the dealership same problem with vibration but not as bad as my personal vehicle. Owner of dealership acknowledged the problem. Owner of dealership made a call to representative of Ford for our area waiting for a date to meet with him and discuss this problem as of today. Trying to file this complaint my tire name and size and vehicle name was not on your list so I just picked one so I could send this to you again my tire is Continental cross contact LX 24560R18 on a 2007 Ford edge. Thank you.
