On my way to work this morning the warning "stop safely now", illuminated on my dash and the vehicle immediately shutdown in the middle of the road. I was very fortunate that I was only going 25 miles per hour and immediately put my emergency lights on which prevented traffic from rear ending me. I had to have the vehicle towed awaiting diagnosis which I am being told by the deal will probably be related to the hybrid battery cooling system. This is a critical safety issues that must be addressed.

Escape Hybrid

2006 Ford Escape hybrid, right after the warning "stop safely now", the car shut down right in the middle of the road, and it happened three times on my way home. After web research, it is quite common for the Ford Escape hybrid cars. It is very dangerous since there is no time for you to stop safely before the car shut down, not even a 5 or 10 seconds. The dealer check it out, it was a water pump failure caused this, called Ford, but Ford denied any assistance. The repair costs more than $600. This is a safety issue and it is need to be fixed. Who is going to drive a car which will shut down in the middle of the road without any time to respond to?
