Ford Escape 2005 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Escape 2005 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Ford Escape 2005: Thermo fan stays on?

    I’d be checking the temperature sensor/switch that controls the fan’s operation. It should be coming on when the temperature rises and go off again when it falls, but it would seem it could be stuck on.

  • Ford Escape 2007: Another cracked wheel

    IN DEFENCE of Ford, it sometimes happens that an owner will hit a kerb or a hole in the road and damage the wheel, but they should check the wheel themselves to verify if the crack has been caused by driver error or not. That they dismissed your claim without checking isn't good enough, even if your car is out of warranty. It's even more disappointing that they have chosen not to act when the dealer supports your claim. If the dealer is prepared to make a report on its findings I would use it and pursue Ford for compensation.
