Question about 2006 Ford Escape
I am a single woman and the sole owner of a 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4WD. All was well until about 60,000 miles. At this time the hydraulic pump for the regenerative brakes (I know it is the pump as the change in sound is heard when unlocking the car, and before the engine is turned on) began to sound different -- kind of fluttery, not smooth like before. It may be louder as well. I went to the dealership and they didn't even know there should be a sound before the engine is turned on! I had to show them the page out of the manual -- which they copied. They kept the car and pulled another one off the lot and listened to the sound of the pump on both. They emailed Ford engineering and were told that these pumps "sometimes get louder the older the car is" and recommended that the pump be replaced at the amazing price of $4100! (They charged me $174.00 for "diagnostics"!) I was shocked. I am now trying to find out what the problem is with the pump and if it is indeed $4100 to fix. I am still paying on the car and have 24 more months of $675.31 a month to pay. I don't know what to do. I need a reliable car as I commute. I am even looking into getting another car (NOT a Ford!), but with this problem I cannot even ethically sell the car, and will get practically nothing as a trade in. Can you help me?
First of all does it have air ride system i was hearing a noise on my expedition and there was a bad line on the compresser for the air ride if it was me i would get a hold of Ford cause what every problem you are having it could be the company that may the part for Ford and they have to stand behind it and i also would like for you to look inside your driver door and find the built date and hope it was not around a holiday also try this website it Ford repair question at www.autorepairssite.com
