2015 Ford Escape Owner Comments

Purchased 2015 Ford Escape on May 1, 2015. In February of 2016 the windshield wiper fluid and pump stopped working. Took to Ford dealer who said that rodents had chewed through the windshield wiper lines and pump area electrical. Made repair. Now, December 2016 I tried to use the windshield wiper fluid to find that it had once again been chewed. I have been parking multiple vehicles (new and used) in the same driveway since 1989 with no issues. Rodents have chewed the sound barrier material in the front wheel wells as well as the wiper fluid lines, etc. And made a nest in the wheel well.

Vehicle exhibits extreme glare on front windshield-- this can occur day or night. Day glare can be so bad as to make vehicle totally unsafe to drive-- not referring to going into a setting or rising sun-- this is normal daylight between 9:00 am and 6:00 pm. Metal dash pieces reflect in side mirrors and make it difficult to see approaching cars

I have been to Ford 3 times trying to get help with an absurd amount of road noise coming from my 2015 Escape. This has become a recent issue to the point where the back seat passenger cannot make out what the driver or front seat passenger are saying. After my 3 visits, Ford has dismissed this problem with little interest. When driving you can feel air from the road as you are in the vehicle. This is a safety hazard as I am worried if debris were to hit my car or if I were to get in an accident there could be serious damage to myself or my passengers. I have also had issues with my trunks lift gate. It fails to latch requiring me to either drive with it unlatched or fiddle with it until it closes. I have also struggled with the doors latching closed which have resulted in my passengers opening and closing the doors several times until the sensor says they are closed. For a 2015 this should not be happening and I am ashamed in myself for leasing a car from such a careless company who lacks concern for its consumers.
