    FORD PASS 5.0

    I have miles to empty on the home page. I have to scroll to get odometer on service page. It's just off the screen. As mentioned, info still there. Just have to get used to it. Samsung Android phone.

    2025 MAVERICK

    Those wheels look familiar. Old Mercedes wheel style?

    Not the best start to ownership [moonroof]

    My wife is an Anglophile. My wife has an '04 TT roadster and '66 Moke. Need to put the battery back in the Moke and get it inspected. Picture in the "what else you drive" thread. Never should have sold my '66 Cooper 970S.

    Not the best start to ownership [moonroof]

    Ordered my wife's BL and my FE without them. Didn't want $1,600 option I never use on a $40k Escape. We're both glad we don't have them. Large moonroofs like on the Escape also add weight in the worst place. Like driving around with somebody on the roof.

    Ford is possibly working on new TSB for Rear Brake Noise

    Noise on my FE and wife's BS isn't bad enough to do anything. Will use up OE and switch to coated rotors.

    Traded my Big Bend for a Badlands

    Ever go through a toll booth behind a Mercedes 240D? Puff of black smoke, and you knew they hit the accelerator. And it sits there barely accelerating. Will last forever, though.

    Traded my Big Bend for a Badlands

    Porsche launched the entry-level 924. Also had the higher priced 944. Lighter 924 had better 0-60 time. I had an '87 VW GTi 16v at the time. 123 h.p. Huge jump from my 65 -h.p. '83 Rabbit L

    Traded my Big Bend for a Badlands

    Have two 2.0s and had it in my '14 Escape. 250/280 compared to 240/270 in the Escapes. And the newer twin-scroll turbo. My '22 is also several hundred pounds lighter. Noticeable difference compared to my '14. It really scoots. Better mileage, too. 500 miles on a tank when I drive from...

    Part number help?

    I've found that Taascaparts.com is a good site for looking up body parts. Just takes a little time to search through diagrams. Parts department guy at my closest dealership is also excellent at searching parts. He's great at finding little fasteners. 😀

    How many members here are Married?

    Married in 1980 right out of college. Separated 1981. Divorced 1982. Married again 1990. Saw my first wife's name on a list of deceased alumni in 2015. Did a search and saw she died in 2004 at 46. Last saw her in a bookstore in the early '80s. She didn't see me. Still very sad at her...

    Bumpy Ride after Lift + Tire Upgrade?

    Sidewall can make a big difference. Recently purchased new tires for my '22 Escape because of a sidewall bubble. Changed the OE H-rated Bridgestone to V-rated Continental CrossContact LX25. Should have stiffer sidewall. Noticeable road feel difference. Crisper handling.

    Anyone planning on doing 25k or 30k mile fluid flush?

    Probably will do transmission, PTU, and RDU around 30k on both Escape and BS. Procedures seem much more mechanic friendly compared to my 3G Escape according to Fordtechmakuloco videos.

    Sync 3 screen dead.

    Try system reset. Press power and >> until something happens. Procedure in owner's manual.

    2025 Bronco Sport Spotted

    My wife won a 2012 Escape Hybrid Limited at work in 2011. Atkinson cycle engine. Liked it a lot. 32.4 mpg over 100,000 miles to 2022 when we sold it. Very pleased with the mileage for a BS-shaped vehicle. We do a 670-mile trip each way six or so times a year. Full EV doesn't work for us.

    WIND BUFFETING IS A COMMON PROBLEM THAT FORD IS TACKLING

    I may have the brochure in the basement. Looked quickly and didn't find it. May go through the car folders again looking for it.

    WIND BUFFETING IS A COMMON PROBLEM THAT FORD IS TACKLING

    Issue with VWs 30 years ago with only opening the sunroof. Flemington VW/Porsche/Audi/BMW, NJ, had a brochure from VW on the flutter in a stand at the service counter. Remedy was to open a window a little.

    Would you trade in the Sport for the Big Bronco? Why or why not??

    That's a contributing factor against the very low miles Edge ST my salesman had me test drive when the Escape I ordered was delivered. Aged platform with just refreshes.

    Would you trade in the Sport for the Big Bronco? Why or why not??

    I like the Explorer Timberland a lot.
