2 Transmission Stuck In Gear problem of the 2016 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 07/06/2020

I was driving down the highway at about 65 mph when all of a sudden out of nowhere I couldn't accelerate anymore it was almost like I was stuck in neutral but I was clearly in drive. I began having other drivers honk at me and trying to pass me, I had my daughter in the car with me, it was really scary. I could have easily been in a accident. I pulled over to the side of the highway, turned my hazards on, and called a tow truck. The mechanic said my transmission was done and I needed a new one, he also said this is a common problem with the Ford Escapes. I repaired it it cost 5600$. The part that bothered me most was when I contacted Ford they didn't care one bit. I feel this is a safety hazard and Ford needs to recall this part and make it right and stand behind their name, because I guarantee they are fully aware of this happening and yet fail to recall it and fix it.

I stopped put the vehicle in park, so it was stopped went in the store came out and shifter was stuck. Because of the issue it could have had extreme cost of towing to the dealer ( Ford). They alerted me no bushing replacement, no recall and only they replace the whole shifter cable 4. 5 hour job $61. 00 part! how many other seniors were treated this way over a $2. 00 part and ten to 15 minute install!

5 Transmission Stuck In Gear problem of the 2012 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 11/18/2019

Computer diagnostics results found transmission a-1 cell defected in two areas causing my 2012 f-escape limited the inability to send proper signals for the engine to receive power/energy necessary to drive. Transmission is stuck in 5th gear. My SUV has under 60,000 miles. I was told by Ford dealership the transmission has known about the defective transmission but, has yet to be recalled. Since, I my extended warranty has ended. I have no coverage for this most expensive repair for any/my automobile. My car is now considered worthless for a trade in or to go towards a new purchase. Please send me a conformation of my complaint with an explanation of how my situation can be rectified. In regard for description of car performance, my car rolls out if parking,/or at stop lights by heavy gas revving, once on highway going 59-60 mph car drives as nothing is wrong due to being stuck in 5tg gear. Please report my complaint so Ford manufacturing can resolve and appropriately pay reparations for repairs, rental, towing, and loss wages due to no transportation to and from work. I consider this to be a safety hazard since I could not excellerate proper speed limits when stopping, pulling out into traffic, or after coming to a stop at traffic lights or off ramps with oncoming traffic. Respectfully, Ford owner. Dec. 1 2019.

Failure Date: 11/15/2018

I purchased my 2014 Ford Escape in April 2017. I also purchased the Ford protect 75000 mile extended warranty. From time to time I would notice a hard shift or slip. I was getting close to my warranties end and brang the vechile in to the dealership from which it I had purchased it from. They said they updated the pcu (which after researching is Fords recommended fix). Couple weeks past and its still doing the same thing. Warranties over not my problem is what im told. Both from the dealership and Ford. I have a recall from Ford do to shifter cable bushings being faultly. Were your car could roll away due to being in the wrong gear. But the kicker is they have not yet provided a part and you can get it fixed and be reimbursed or always use your parking brake. Which im sure is great for hot rotors and breakpads. And this is not the only problem I have. My vechile now has quite a few issues. Which include stalling when backing up shifter stuck in park (finally when it does release slams into reverse) randomly draining battery because car is in power saving mode not starting because if hill assist mode? backup cam intermittently not working touchscreen displaynot working or black. All these problems seem to be common among 2014 Escape owners when reading online forums for both owners and mechanics. Yet Ford states that even with the recalled issue. No consumer complaints or injuries have been filed. I will be document every occurrence from this day forward.

Purchased car used about 3 years ago. Have had very hard shifts 1-->2, but transmission was checked at time of purchase and I was told it was ok. At time of purchase car had about 30k miles on it. It now has 51k miles. Shift is now extremely hard 1->2, 2->1. Car got stuck and would only go in reverse last week and I ended up stuck on a ramp in a parking garage. I was unable to get the car to drive formward and it took 5-6 tries. Car was then stuck in first gear for about 2 miles, then suddenly shifted and was normal. It has lost all forward motion at times suddenly while driving on the street, car unable to shift. Now needs a new transmission with only 51k miles on the car. It has never been in an accident and is driven very lightly. Extremely dangerous to have a car come out of gear (?) while driving in heavy city traffic.

16 Transmission Stuck In Gear problem of the 2001 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 08/11/2006

On Friday 8/11/06 I was on my way to work driving my 2001 Ford Escape (with 5-speed manual transmission). I was going at around 45 mph in a busy road. Suddenly there was a total transmission failure and my vehicle came to an instant total stop. There was screeching of tires and I was very fortunate not to crash and that the vehicles behind me did not hit me. It was also a matter of luck that there were no persons killed nor injured. My car was stuck on gear and could not be pushed forward or backward, so it had to be towed with a platform truck. I bought this vehicle new in 2001 and have been the sole owner. I have given this vehicle all of its recommended maintenance every 3,000 miles. I informed Ford motor company about this failure and they were not helpful at all. I think the general public has to be informed about this safety risk with 2001 Ford Escapes.

Ford recalls 550K Fusion, Escape vehicles for transmission problems

DETROIT (WJBK) - Ford announced a recall of 550,000 Fusion and Escape vehicles to replace shifter cable bushings that could detach from the transmission.

According to Ford, the vehicles range in year from 2013 to 2016 and were built with a bushing that attaches to the shifter cable of the transmission. A degraded shifter cable bushing that detaches from the transmission may cause the vehicle to be in the wrong gear. 

The recall covers certain 2013 through 2016 Fusion sedans and some 2013 and 2014 Escape small SUVs.

What that means is that if you put the car in park and took the key out, the car may actually not be in park. If the parking brake isn't applied, the cable bushing detaches and the car could roll away.

Ford is not aware of any accidents at this time.

The recalled vehicles include:
2014 Ford Fusion vehicles built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant between June 18, 2013 and Sept. 15, 2013
2014-16 Ford Fusion vehicles built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant between June 2, 2014 and Aug. 31, 2015
2013-14 Ford Fusion vehicles built at Hermosillo Stamping and Assembly Plant between May 15, 2013 and Sept. 15, 2013
2014-16 Ford Fusion vehicles built at Hermosillo Stamping and Assembly Plant between June 2, 2014 and Aug. 31, 2015
2013-14 Ford Escape vehicles built at Louisville Assembly Plant between May 15, 2013 and Sept. 15, 2013

The recall involves approximately 549,401 vehicles in North America, including 504,182 in the United States and federalized territories, 36,887 in Canada, and 8,332 in Mexico. The Ford reference number for this recall is 18S20.

Dealers will replace the shifter cable bushing at no cost to the customer. Owners should use their parking brake.

6 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2020 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 07/31/2020

Vehicle shifts very hard when normally driving and when auto start and stop feature functions. The transmission does not know what gear it wants to stay in, often times jerking very hard, which moves the entire car at a complete stop or tosses the driver in their seat when moving and shifting. The vehicle also stalled several times, loosing throttle and function, almost causing me to get t-boned by 2 separate cars in traffic. Overall, the vehicle has issues with transmission shifts, engine realizability, and general safety features as a whole. Someone can and will get seriously injured if this is not investigated and addressed. Vehicle has been taken into the dealer who can't fix the issue, despite it happening several times, and has insisted the customer drive the malfunctioning vehicle. Ford motor company was notified about the complaint and is processing a buy back on my personal vehicle. I just don't want others to get hurt.

14 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2013 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 12/29/2019

As I was driving I noticed my car jerking going in to first gear. I figured because I was on a hill that was the reason. Later that day as I was trying to run errand as I got in the highway my car wouldn't go above 60 mph and was at very high rpms to maintain this speed and would not go into 6th gear. I pulled off of the highway and started to make my home to call the dealership. As I made it to a red light the car jerked again when I stopped. As I went to accelerate I made it in the middle of the intersection when my car lost all power and would only rev as if it was in nuetral. After turning it off and back on it ran well enough for me to make it home and I am currently awaiting my appointment with the dealership. I'm at 63k miles and purchased the vehicle 3 months ago and it had about 50k miles on it. I drive a 2013 Ford Escape ecoboost. This defect is very dangerous and I could have been seriously injured being stuck in an intersection like that. This issue needs to be resolved seeing that I'm not the only one who has had this issue speaking with mechanics here and the dealership who all have a number of this same vehicle with similar issues.

15 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2016 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 10/14/2019

Transmission failure at only 90k miles for a vehicle that was built in 2016 is absolutely crazy! the vehicle will not shift into gear and when it does it struggles to move under its own weight. The vehicle was at a stop when it jolted really hard. It felt like someone hit me from the back. After that jolt the car was making some grinding noises. We barely made it to a parking lot as the car was struggling to move in a busy street.

17 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2019 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 09/21/2019

Intermittent issues with the transmission not being able to shift into park. When it happens, the shiftier freely moves between all positions except will not go all the way forward to the "park" position. It can eventually be moved forward by fiddling with it or one time a passenger was able to force it. Even when this is done, the indicator in the instrument panel does not always show a gear selected so in those cases, it is unknown whether it is truly in park.

18 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2013 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 06/29/2019

While driving on Saturday, June 29, 2019, my car suddenly started hesitating when changing gears. The longer I drove, the more it shook, and accelerated but did not go into gear or move at all. Eventually it went into gear and took off. I managed to reach my destination and let it sit for a while, the headed home. The longer I drove, all of the above happened again. I drove it very sparingly for the next week until I was able to get the money to have it repaired. It is currently in the shop. Today I happened to come across this website and found multiple complaints from people experiencing the same problems. Is anything being done to address this issue?.

19 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2014 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 08/04/2018

The car was parked at a gas filling station to fill the gas tank. When attempting to leave the gas station, the car registered being in reverse and would not start. Upon examination, it was determined the bushing on the transmission and would no longer shift gears. In order to move the vehicle, the transmission needed to be shifted with one person manual held the shifting cable onto the transmission while someone in the vehicle moved the gear shift. As the gears were shifted, the person holding the cable in place made sure that it did not pop off so that it could be moved into gear. If the person did not hold the cable down, it would not shift gears. We were able to get the vehicle home and repeat the process to get it into park. The car is not safely able to be driven in the condition it currently is.

20 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2013 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 06/29/2018

My kids and I were in the drive thru at schlotzky's when I put my car in �park� to order. Once my order was complete and I was ready to pull forward, I went to put my car in �drive� and the gear stick was moving freely but not shifting the gears for my car to move. A team member from the restaurant came out to give me a hand to find that my shifter cable was disconnected. He then told me to use the emergency brake to park my car so it would park and not continue in motion when I wanted to park. We then took it to mieneke where the car previously was for a transmission replacement. They said that my shifter cable had gone bad. Now my gear stick gets stuck with trying to shift gears.

22 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2014 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 02/10/2018

The transmission blew on this car after 3 1/2 years of ownership, 87,000 miles. The transmission began slipping (I. E. , loss of power upon shifting to accelerate) after about 1 year of ownership. I asked our local dealer where I purchased the car to check and they could not replicate. The slippage kept happening periodically, but not often enough that I could figure out what was going on. It was after the transmission blew and I researched "blown transmission" online that I realized what had been going on for years in a new car. When it did blow, I was driving, running errands around town, and was coming to a stop at a light. As I tried to put it back into gear and drive when the light turned green it would not engage into a gear to move the car. Left me stranded. Everything else was running, including the sync operated "engine assessment system" which ran an assessment and said everything in the care was operating fine, including the transmission! I had to pay for a rental car, towing for the vehicle, and it would cost me $6700 to replace the transmission. It was so damaged the service guy said it could not even be repaired. We ultimately donated the car but got nothing for a car that was 3 1/2 years old in great condition. Very disappointing. And the dealer never offered me anything. . . To pay for rental car or the diagnostic to tell me they had to replace the transmission, or even for parts for the car. I'll never buy a Ford car again.

Throttle/powertain has went out in car. I read about other complaints concerning the same thing. I was driving down the highway and my car would not change gear and the wrench light emblem came on. I was in traffic and the car was slowing down, I almost got into an accident on I-30 in arlington texas on 2/1/2018. There was a recall on this part but another year. This is highly unsafe and needs to be recalled. Thanks, for reading this complaint. Linda wafford-469-648-9106.

25 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2008 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 08/15/2016

I purchased my 2008?Ford Escape last year 2015. I have replaced both cv axils on each side and I had my steering column replaced. I purchased the car with 95,000 miles on it at a great deal of $8,900. I then found out why it was so cheap from such a trusted dealership. The dealership was closing in the next 2 weeks. It closed shortly after my purchase and a new Ford dealership opened in its place. Through out the last few weeks my car has not been driving correctly, especially on the highway. I took a closer look and noticed that no matter my speed my car will not go above 3rd gear. My power tran light came on today. I have read on other sights that there were recalls on this issue. I do not think these issues were fixed while being recalled. The related I've done so far have not been cheap by any means. After a year (even less 2 of the above cases) I should not be having these issues. . Read more...

26 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2016 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 06/19/2016

Transmission started acting funny around 5 months after getting my Escape. I would put it in reverse and it would jerk or not go into gear a few seconds. Then it started shuddering when I would drive it. At first maybe a few times a day. Yesterday it started shuddering and jerking all day. At one point I thought something had hit me or I had hit something as my car literally went forward and a loud clunk was heard from behind. Scared both me and my passenger as it felt like I had hit something. I am really scared to drive this thing because I never know when it will start jerking, shudder, etc. I had an se 2013 and had no trouble with the trans but it was not a titanium model, which I believe is the problem. I am afraid to pull out of our drive today when I leave for work as it is very busy and I don't know if it is going to stall, shudder, jerk, whatever. Ford needs to do a recall on their Escapes at least the titanium models. They have all the computer stuff on those and although mine is not a top of the line titanium, it is still a titanium. I can't get this car in until next Monday a full week away. The dealership (taylor Ford) said his service department is full of transmission problems. Doesn't that tell you something??.

27 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2008 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 02/09/2015

Escape would not shift gears when it hit 20 mph it stalls when going from a stop position. Rpms would jump up during this time until it finally does kick into gear. Took to mechanic and was told the 2nd and 4th bands on the transmission are faulty and need transmission rebuild. There is a TSB out for this problem but this is a safety issue and should be a recall. Mileage is at 101,000 miles. Having your car not accelerate from a stop position puts the driver and other drivers at risk.

28 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2008 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 09/05/2014

Vehicle surged forward when I came to a stop vehicle would not go into gear until I was at 3500 -4000 rpm. I got on freeway &couldn't get to speed limit. The wrench light is illuminated & when I looked up description in manual it states it is the throttle control/powertrain. After doing some research they do have recalls for this but on the 2009-2012 models. It also specified that Ford as of Feb. 2014 had issued an extended warranty for throttle body assemblies for 2005 - 2012 for 10 years or 150,000 miles. I contacted Ford & then state there is no recall nor consumer satisfaction program 13n03 for my car. Yet, the have the same consumer satisfaction program for the 2011 milans. This I know cause my daughter has a 2011 milan & she received notice. I do not understand how Ford can not comply when this Escape clearly has the same problems as the recalled vehicles for 2009-2012. All I was told was to get it fixed & keep receipt and maybe some day could get reimbursed. This is really frustrating and on Ford's part totally unaware and unfair to their consumers!.

29 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2014 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 07/27/2014

Travelling center lane on route 81, at 65 mph, car lost all throttle, felt like it came out of gear, while driving, and could not get into gear. Managed to get off to shoulder. Had a tractor trailer been behind me, there is no doubt they would've hit me. Apparently the dealership had 3 other Ford Escapes with the same problem in their shop. Another friend of mine just purchased her Ford Escape a couple of months ago, and she had the same problem. I feel this is a safety issue, as this happened while I was traveling at 65mph.

31 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2010 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 08/04/2013

After the April 30, 2013 (54,367miles) incident, the vehicle was repaired by the Ford dealer and on Aug 4th (58,700+/- miiles), the same symptoms appeared while driving on open freeway 65 mph with rolling hills. The vehicle experienced a power drop and surge with automatic transmission gear shifting. A warning light--mechanic wrench turned on and then there was a different engine/transmission sound and it would not shift out of gear by itself so we put it into neutral and rolled to a stop. The car was towed approx 70miles to the same Ford dealer near our home. We are waiting for the service dept to return our calls and provide the detail technical information of fault codes etc and how they plan to repair it again. Same condition, appears to be an engineering design or manufacturing defect of specific components, (throttle body, transmission).

32 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2012 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 08/01/2013

My 2012 Ford Escape has transmission issues, and from what I'm being told it's not only my vehicle. It seems to be all over the place as I drive it. One time at a stop light it will slip, and not go into gear just acting like it is in neutral. The next time I take my foot off the brake, and it will jam it self into gear almost rear ending the vehicle in front of me. It does the same as I drive it I'm never sure which result I'm going to get, but I do get one or the other. I've had it into three Ford dealerships a total of seven times, but from rebooting the software to rebuilding the transmission from the limited parts available it continues to get worse. I was told at the last dealership that it needs a new transmission, but none are available as they have so many complaints about them. I've complained to customer service who told me to talk to customer relations, and the case manager doesn't call me back. I finally called Ford credit to tell them about the situation, but they just transferred me to the voicemail of the case manager that doesn't call me back. If they are having all the complaints I've been told about I thought someone should report it to you before gets seriously hurt.

Failure Date: 07/30/2013

I was accelerating up a hill, when I noticed that it did not have any power. The car would rev up but not change gears. When I got it to the dealer they said an intermediate band broke on the transmission. Apparently the Escape is known for transmission problems. The 2nd and 4th gears go out on them. Ford would not pay for any of the repair which was $1358. 41. This is the second Escape I had with transmission problems. Needless to say I will never buy a Ford SUV again.

Failure Date: 03/14/2013

While slowing down to make a turn or come to a stop, vehicles transmission jerks violently. After starting the vehicle and putting it in gear, the vehicle jerks and slams into gear. While on the highway and trying to speed up after going through tolls, vehicles rpm's jump wildly, strains engine because vehicle will not go into gear. Causing you to have to slow down and nearly cause an accident with vehicles behind you. Ford told me (may 8, 2013) it is a leaking seal on the transmission, but the part is on back-order until the middle of July.

35 Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem of the 2012 Ford Escape

Failure Date: 03/13/2013

Transmission issue- I have a 2012 Ford espape 6 cylinder. While driving the vehicle at low speed (20mph) the vehicle sounds like it is not in the right gear, it makes a noise as if it wants to change gears but can't. When you come to a stop at a stop sign or red light and then try to proceed the vehicle will not go when you push the accelerator, then it lunges forward into gear. I have had it at the dealership 3 times. The dearlership said they fixed the problem,but the problem is still there. I had 8402 miles on it and now have approximately 9400 and I am still returning it to the dealership. I have also contacted Ford motor company and they said it can possibly be the adapt shift strategy, which is when the vehicle has to learn the driver. I have never heard of anything like this. When the dealership has the vehicle they state the vehicle doesn't do it. When I pick the vehicle up from the dealership, I have the problem again after only driving it about 26-30 miles. I know it is the transmission and I feel Ford is neglecting their responsibility to resolve this issue. This vehicle should be performing better than the 2005 Ford Escape (4 cylinder) I previously owned, and was satisfied with. This 6 cylinder has no power to go. When the vehicle is in idle mode it sounds like a diesel vehicle than a regular gasoline vehicle.

Stuck shifter on a 2015 Ford Fusion Titanium

My head was spinning, a pleasant warm thrill spread from my heart down my stomach and below. Like a condenser filled to capacity, the body seemed to crackle with sparks, demanding discharge. Pulling out the cherished drawer of a chest of drawers, Olga went through her treasures for a long time, getting more and more excited.

Now discussing:

She, being shy, was embarrassed, but not for long. We sat, talked, drank, talked again, drank again. By six o'clock I was ready to go home, as the circumstances required, and having said goodbye, I left.
