Dead no sound. tap starter .starts right up.

If I try to push the car slippery button it will not come off.

Engine not changing to EV Green mode when stationary of moving at low speed?

engine functioning in gas mode, but hybrid cut on/off not kicking in at low using more gas than usual?

Changed battery now battery light is on how do I clear it.

I bought the car in February and about a month ago the gas pedal started sticking so I need to know if there is a recall and if I can get it fixed under the recall or if I have to pay and how much it will cost me, a friend of mine has a 2003 Ford escape and her did the same thing and she said it was a recall

Seems like the tumbler is going?

Power steering went out and cluster lights went out and I had the AC on and I noticed it don't do that when I turn it off? Also abs lights and airbags and traction control light and battery light stays on... at one point they turn off when I accelerate and I get power steering back on so I don't know if it has to do with something else like computer problem?


when I try to start the car the key will not work. can't get the engine to start. try to move key around and press in but still will not start. took to ford garage and was told that it was not the starter but no electrical power in steering column module not working. they wanted over 550 dollars to fix said it would take 2 days. whats up

my brake & gas pedal seem to stutter, vibrate. when the ABS light comes on it stops. it seems to get worse if its hot outside. is it just the rotors?

Only occurs when A/C is on. Belt is fine, and system works well. No other unusual noises.

I was checking out a used 2008 Ford Escape 4WD XLT but was looking at the rear bumper which seems to be very flimsy. I was wondering if this is normal for this type of car. I am able to push the rear bumper with one finger and make it move to the point where if another car was to rear end me it doesn't look like the rear bumper would withstand any impact. Is this abnormal? Could this be a self-repair job that was unreported by the previous owner?
