Escape 4WD

  • miles
Purchased 1st Escape 6-7-02. Dealer had car 7 out of 11 days for stalling issues and hatch lock repairs. Dealer replaced vehicle with new vehicle 6-25-02. On 6-26-02 new car stalled on deceleration between 6-6:30 pm going down an incline on pearl drive. On 6-28-02 car stalled on deceleration around 5 pm on downhill slope of muegge road. The car was placed in neutral and restarted immediately. Contacted Ford customer service to request all tsb tests be performed by dealer at one time to remedy issues. Am currently waiting to hear back from Ford to see if that is going to be possible.
