2007 Ford Escape Hybrid Problems

The hybrid models have a coolant pump that cools control electronics. The pump can fail or spin slowly, which causes a Check Engine Light to illuminate and complete engine shut down.

An abnormal noise may develop from the transfer case. At this time parts are not available to repair internal damage to this type of transfer case, replacement is the only option. It is not uncommon for irregular tire wear to cause a similar noise. Diagnoses should be performed to confirm the actual cause of the driveline noise. Tire noise can be reduced by rotating the tires at least every 5000 miles.

Hard driving conditions, including quick starts from a stop and hard acceleration up hills, can cause the rear motor mount to crack. The broken motor mount needs to be replaced, otherwise damage to the hybrid drive system may result.

I have not had any problems with my 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid. No overheating. Good acceleration. Have taken on several long trips into the mountains, through the desert, driving for hours at a time. No problems. Only complaints are that the ride is like a truck rather than a car (stiff and rough), and the mileage has decreased to about 31 mpg. Stll that is about 50% better than my previous...

Not for trips. Overheats at the drop of a hat. Lots of issues that should be recalled. Was nice for the first year, though.
