2006 Ford Escape Recalls
For vehicles that have had a replacement Ford remanufactured automatic transmission installed, the shift lever bolt may not be properly tightened. This can result in the shift lever disengaging from the transmission, making it impossible to know the proper gear selected, nor put the vehicle into park to secure it.
Recalls on your Ford or Mercury must be performed by a Ford dealership. Ford will begin notifying known owners of affected vehicles in October 2015. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Ford dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The cooling system for the hybrid system may fail, resulting in loss of power and stalling of the vehicle.
Ford notified owners of affected vehicles starting in October 2014. You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them. The Ford recall number is 14S19.
A shaft that transmits engine power to the wheels may fracture. If this happens, the transmission will be unable to transmit power to the wheels and hold the vehicle when shifted into park, which could result in a crash.
Please contact your Ford dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
