Ford is one of the largest multinational conglomerates in the United States, one of the original pioneers of assembly line automobile manufacture. Established by Henry Ford, the company has had tremendous success manufacturing both commercial and domestic vehicles. While the company is perhaps best known for its economical automobiles, it also has its own luxury marquee called Lincoln which has become quite popular, and in 1989 it took the step of acquiring Aston Martin, the famed British sports carmaker, selling its stake by 2007.
About 2012 Ford Escape
The 2012 edition of the Ford Escape is a moderately sized sport utility vehicle that is suitable for both urban and off road excursions. It comes in three trims, which are Limited, XLT or XLS, and has the option of four or front wheel drive. It is equipped with a four cylinder, 2.5 liter engine that has an automatic six speed transmission and can generate 171 horsepower, but can be upgraded to a V6, 3 liter engine that is E85 capable which generates 240 horsepower. It has an array of standardized safety features, such as air bags for the front and side, stability control from AdvancedTrac with increased protection against rollover, antilock brakes for all four wheels and monitoring of the tire pressure.
Common 2012 Ford Escape A/C Problems
Some owners have stated that while driving their Ford Escape on highways the air being emitted by the A/C became cool rather than cold. Others have also reported the vehicle shaking while they were accelerating. It has been speculated that the air conditioner was extracting too much power through the engine, and drivers shut it off to see if the situation would be improved, but it didn’t work. The engine light continued blinking off and on.
Some drivers have also stated that despite their blower being on, the A/C suddenly went from cold to warm in an instant. However, when the engine of the Ford Escape is shut down and then turned back on the A/C becomes cold again. The speed at which the vehicle is moving doesn’t seem to influence this problem. Some drivers have also encountered strange noises while operating the air conditioning that coincided with a reduction in cold air. Sometimes when the A/C fails to work the radiator fan will run continuously and make loud noises, almost as if it is about to explode, which many mechanics think is caused by a faulty relay switch. Buying new A/C parts online and installing them can resolve many of these issues.
