Ford Escape Drivers Wish They Could Escape Noises

February 22, 2017 By: LemonLaw Category: ford escape

Driving a Ford Escape and wishing you could escape noises in the rear or rattles in the suspension?  You are not alone.  A quick google search reveals that drivers have been complaining of Escape noises for years, dating back to 2013 models. Click here to read about drivers lamenting of their Escape noises in an 11-page message board thread. And we are continuously receiving calls from folks on the 1 800 LEMON LAW hotline complaining that they cannot escape these constant nuisances either.

Noise claims are not the easiest to prove so how do you deal with a frequently intermittent rattle you may hear in your Escape’s rear, gas tank, or suspension?  Use your smart phone to record the noise and track when you are hearing the noise and where you are hearing the noise.  Are you driving on the highway or in your neighborhood?  Are you going 30 miles per hour or sixty?  The more information you are able to provide the better.  And by all means, do not give up.  We have a client who was consistently mentioning noise from their rear in their 2016 Escape.  After numerous service advisers telling them it’s a common problem and it’s “operating as designed,” they are finally replacing their struts and shocks in an effort to alleviate the issue.  Also, make sure you obtain a warranty repair invoice for each visit to the dealer and you keep those invoices in a safe place.

If you are continuously back to a Ford dealer for Escape noises, it may be time to look at your rights under State Lemon Laws and Federal Warranty Statutes. Click here for a list of firms throughout the Country who might be able “to make some noise” in your claim against Ford.

    I have owned my 2012 focus since June of 2015. I have had nothing but trouble out of the transmission. I have had it at the Ford place 3 times getting recalls done and reprogramed. It has only gotten worse. My car is now in the shop and has been there for 4 weeks having to have a complete transmission over haul. When I contacted Ford they told me there was nothing they could do. So now I am out 4600.00 on a new transmission.

      It’s not gas your hearing from the back. I kept hearing something that sounded like a clunk or a slosh in the rear and finally figured out it only did it when it rained. Rain water splashes and sucks in to the bottom panels and bumper lining. every time you stop or turn you can hear it.

        Since leasing my 2017 Ford Escape I have had a noise that two Ford dealers service departments call “morning sickness”. The noise is coming from the brakes or drums or somewhere in that vicinity. Also when the noise happens my brakes go to the floor. They tell me to pump them. I am worried this problem could be dangerous. I am an 81 yr. Old widow. I have asked to record the noise for the service dept. But they say they have to hear it.

        Your brakes go to the floor?? Thats a bad sign! something is seriously wrong with that vehicle. The brake pedal should only go to the floor if there is either an internal leak within the system or an external leak where you would see fluids on the ground!
