Escape 4-cyl

  • miles
After recall completed (recall notice 13S12/NHTSA recall 13V583) I was driving car home and saw lower left corner of trip display jumped erratically with wild range numbers from 99.9 to 57 or 75 or 43 something, all over the place. I pulled over to the side of the road because I was afraid of what was going on, and because it was extremely distracting and unsafe to take eyes off the road. Told by service department it was not a problem. (instant fuel economy) was not a display before the recall and previous readings were more driver friendly and informative. If this is a diagnostic aid for service I understand, but it is a serious distraction when driving.
