2013 Escape has overheated twice now after recall fix
By jerseygirl77 on
Vehicle
2013 Ford Escape SE 4dr SUV AWD (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Review
There is something wrong with the 1.6L engine & transmission combo. My car has overheated twice after doing uphill climbs in the California hills. I'm guessing the transmission is overheating since it never knows what gear to be in, which is causing the turbo to overheat. Ford can't seem to figure out what's wrong though. If you search on the DOT website for complaints, the overheating post recall is popping up a bit. You can also see all the other transmission problems this car is having if you search around on the Ford Escape forums.
Suggested Improvements
Stop selling the 1.6L engine since it doesn't work well with this transmission. I've never had a problem with the Ford Kuga (European version). Just bring diesel to the US.
