Brake systems light goes on when starting the car and we lose 90% of the brakes. This has happened 6 times. Ford has not been able to diagnose problem. There was one attempt to fix by tightening low fluid switch on brake master cylinder. A week later, we got the same brake system light warning as well as an anti-skid warning and a power train warning. We drive this vehicle on mountain roads.this problem has occurred over the last 6 months.

  • 52,000 miles
Organization owns two 2009 Ford Escape hybrids. First vehicle has had numerous problems including ac/heating system was repaired under warranty, steering wheel cover disintegrated and was replaced under warranty, check engine light has repeatedly come on dating back to when vehicle was under warranty, but dealership could not replicate the problem or find any codes, ABS module went out at 52,000 miles, when module was replaced, code for hydraulics showed another module needed replaced, car is still in shop, and dealer says there are still additional codes that have not been addressed. This vehicle has not been in an accident or any other type of situation that would cause this kind of mechanical and/or electrical problems. When Ford customer relations was contacted, they said there was nothing they could do since the car was no longer under warranty at 52,000 miles.
