2018 Ford Escape Owner Comments

problem #2

Escape 4 Cy

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,049 miles


My car will be in the garage for up to 10 days. No loaner but I can rent one for $40/day plus tax. I gave Ford $34,000 for a car and implicit in the deal was that Ford would provide me a car that drives. When it does not drive, Ford should supply a car for me at no cost to me. I am told that I will have to pay over $400 for the ten days that their car does not run. 21,000 kilometers and it has been in the garage 4 times. I wish Canada had lemon laws and I wish Ford honoured their commitment.

Escape ES V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 73,500 miles

2018 Ford Escape, with around 73k miles, was 9 hours from home two days before Thanksgiving. Took the car to Empey's Auto Shop in Idaho Falls, Idaho, paying $1,000.00 total for diagnostic check and thermostat replacement. 2 months later, last night, I was driving down the high way when the "High Engine Temp, Stop Car," light came on. I HATE car issues, we bought new, less than 15 miles on the car and now we are already putting money into it. I don't know what to do, I need your auto experience.
