Question about 2006 Ford Escape

1 Answer

Road Noise I have a 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid that I bought used, with 19,000 miles, 1 year ago. It now has 32,000 miles and the road noise is absolutely horrible. I believe it is the tires. I think the previous owner switched them before trading it because I don't think Ford would have sold it with Continental tires on it, because it is trimmed out top of the line. I have read that road noise is already a problem with this model. Question - what tire would you recommend for the best ride and the least noise? Please don't tell me $200 each Michelins!! :)

If your looking for a really good inexpensive tire that will last you a while i will suggest the Hankook tires. i have owned them in sizes running from 38 12.50 15 to 225/75r15 they are a great tire and virtually no road noise at all. and they are actually very good priced as far as inexpensive.
please rate me if you would
thank you

2007 Ford Escape Hybrid Clatter Noise


So being it doesn't clatter in electric mode, a safe assumption is the noise is with the gas motor.

Usually a clattering noise is valvetrain noise, like a lifter not pumping up.

Low oil will cause this.

3 quarts low would probably definitely cause this!

You need to find out why you lost 3 quarts in only 80 miles!

My 2002 Ford Escape has significant road noise on the highway. Would a quiter set of tires help and, if so, what tires can you recommend that are known for road quiet. Thanks.


Tires will make some difference,but
not enough to be buying new ones,
to find out

You should buy a tire that is good in snow,
unless you live where you get none

No point in having 4 wheel drive, and a
summer Florida special on it,like you
get from the factory

Bought used, 140,000 miles, roaring noise, brake light


3 suggestions for you, you may need to check the tire pressure, get a tire alligment done, or you have a bad wheel bearing, usally a bad wheel bearing make's a loud roaring sound going down the road. I hope I have helped you.

2006 Honda Pilot - Road Noise - not tires.


the tires make steady noise , check the wheel bearing as noises get high and low at the same speed , and i also would check for diff if it's 4wd.

Poor Mileage


Hello;
I would take the vehicle back to the dealer for a check. In city driving is seldom good but see what mileage you get on the open road. Stop and go kills mileage but my Pontiac G6 gets 26 in town and 39 on the freeway.
Thanks;

Ford Escape Hybrid goes dead if not driven for 3 days straight


I have the same problem with my 2007 Escape Hybrid... First experienced it about 1 year ago. The vehicle produces periodic sounds like an electric motor running for several seconds. I believe this is from the motor driven safety relay that disconnects and reconnects the high voltage hybrid battery when the vehicle is not in use. I also can hear a high frequency scream that sounds like a switching inverter power supply. If the vehicle is unused for a day or two the 12V battery is discharged and a jump is needed to start the engine. Ford service could not diagnose the problem. The +12V battery tested OK, but since it was almost 3 years old it was replaced anyway. This helped for a while, but the problem returned after I recently left the vehicle unused for several days. I know the battery is good, it tests OK and is less than one year old! Somewhat reluctant to go back to the same Ford service agency because of their previous failure to fix it. Please advise if you have found a solution or have additional information. This is the only problem I have ever had with the hybrid Escape, but it is very annoying. I am forced to carry a jumper battery to make sure I don't get stranded.
