We have had problems with this vehicle from day one. Currently the big issue is the throttle body (which I've seen has been a problem with all the Ford Escapes). Also the mass air flow system, heating/air, and security system (also it has a problem not starting---not sure if that's also throttle body). Is this being recalled?

Visible particulate matter of unknown origin coming from interior heating/cooling ducts of 2009 Ford Escape. Dealer kept car for 2 days to "blow out" the system and eliminate the problem but it still persists, causing me to cough and sneeze. Dealer states the white residue is not harmful but I do not agree and would like to have samples tested for toxicity and harmful effects from continuous inhalation.
