Escape Hybrid

  • 154,000 miles
14S05 recall, code B2278 lost power assist system luckily I was not on the highway. I was driving in a neighborhood at less then 20mph. I have 154,000 miles on my car. This failure made it nearly impossible for me to steer my car. If I had been on a mildly busy street and needed to turn at an intersection I would not have been able to do it. I was moments from getting on the highway and can not imagine how I could have had any control of the vehicle. Ford should be replacing all the failed torque sensor. Should be a class action lawsuit!
