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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2015 Ford Escape Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 5,700 miles


Purchased 2015 Escape on May 1, 2015. February 2016 windshield wiper fluid would not work. Took to the dealership to find that a squirrel had nested under the hood and chewed the lines as well as a part on the pump for the wiper fluid while it was parked in the driveway. Cost was $250 for repair. March 2015 I checked under the hood to find that squirrels had chewed and torn up the wheel well insulation on one side while parked in the driveway. After applying critter ridder granules and spraying pepper spray in the engine compartment they then chewed the insulation on the other side. Lived in the same place and parked multiple new and used vehicles in the driveway since 1989 with no prior issues. Possible soy components in manufacturer's materials. Potential for further damage is a safety hazard if brake lines are chewed or electrical wiring chewed.

Was pulling out of a parking lot and heard a noise(I described the noise like a rock hitting the glass) looked at my windshield and didn't see anything. Went home and parked my car in the garage. Got in the car a couple days later and got in the car, started the car and my sunroof went back about an inch and shattered glass feel into the car. Checked on top of car and the roof popped upward and shattered. Did research and the 2014 Escape had the same issues.fors refused to replace the sunroof because their engineers decided from my photos that it was probably caused by derbie from the road.
