I have had my escape in the shop 3 times in the last 2 months of owning it, it is a new vehicle. The number 3 coil keeps having to be replaced and the vehicle is burning alot of fuel. The check engine light keeps coming on every 1000 kilometers and the code shows the number 3 coil. The spark plug is usually very black and burnt.

    50 state Lemon Law, tell them you want a NEW vehicle! Three strikes you know. What's going to happen down the road after warranty period? Get paperwork on all attempts to repair!
