- Ford escape
Unsafe vehicles, I bought a used Ford. They gave me a paper saying it was all up to safety standers with all boxes checked off, first day bringing it home one of my passengers noticed the seatbelt in the back is completely broken. Had to go back to get it fixed, then 2 days later my check engine light goes on! They must of cleared it before they sold it to me, I take it to my mechanic he looks at it and says that it was going to blow a gasket if I don’t get it fixed. Had to go back to the dealership again they wanted to charge me $900 to fix it. Had to argue with them and show them there own policy for there Ford used vehicles, it was under the warranty so they ended up doing for free. Then I go to work a few days after getting my suv back, I drive to work that takes over 45 mins to get to on the highway. Park my car and half way though my day I get a call from the security there saying their is something hanging from my car! I go outside and look the big rubber/plastic piece that protects your engine from underneath was hanging by 2 bolts. Now I have to get under my car in the winter with a knife to cut whatever if left hanging there because I couldn’t drive home with it more then half way on the ground. So we had to take it back again and they made sure to charge me this time because they said I got away with to much free stuff already. So they don’t care about the safety of their customer or for the car regulation rules of Alberta, only about money. I paid over $15,000 for this used Ford Escape. I would have been fine with it, if it was a up to the safety standard instead of a nightmare of dangerous events.
"Let me start by saying that I will NEVER be bringing my..."
Let me start by saying that I will NEVER be bringing my vehicle or business to Sherwood Ford after the disrespect I was shown by LUKE KOWLAND.
After completing recall work on my tailgate in the summer, the issue persisted and the tailgate would continue to fall open. The problem continued and occurred while I was towing, resulting in damage to the my tailgate.
I brought my vehicle back to Sherwood Ford, where Luke Kowland tried to tell me that the tonneau cover was causing the issue, even though it had been installed 4 years ago with no issue prior to the recall. I also pointed to 5 other vehicles in the service lot with the same tonneau cover and asked why those vehicles didn't have the same problem. The Service Manager, Damon Egan, assured me they would work to solve the problem and would help me find a resolution-- that was the last time I heard anything from him.
After 4 weeks of no response or communication, I followed up and was instructed to bring my vehicle to the dealership to assess the damage. After the adjustor looked at my vehicle, I was on my way.
Another month passed and still nothing... I followed up again, no response. Another 3 weeks passes, nothing... Finally, 4 months after the problem was first brought to their attention, I sent an email and cc'd management; I was able to get a response in 2 minutes.
After providing a vehicle history statement, Luke carefully read through it to find areas they could use to deflect responsibility and put the blame on other service providers. The list of things blamed, other than accepting responsibility for the work, includes: myself, the tonneau cover, truck outfitters, Fix Auto, and the box-liner itself.
At no point did they address the electrical issues that started occurring after the recall work was done, nor did they catch "the cause" of the issue the first 3 times the vehicle was in their possession.
I have even reached out to the General Manager, Kurtis Hicks, to inform him of the absurdity going on in his service department. It appears that he, too, has ignored me, as well as the issue.
At no point was this even brought to the attention of Ford Canada, who would likely be the one to help solve the issue. None of the initial concerns were addressed, especially the problem that was quoted as being "nothing they've ever seen before." Once they had decided this was my fault, I was out of luck... I'm now left with a damaged tailgate that will either have to come out of pocket and/or go through insurance to fix.
If you have a problem with your vehicle, I strongly suggest you go elsewhere!!

"I brought my truck in for recall work to be done and I..."
I brought my truck in for recall work to be done and I also had a rattling noise that I wanted ford to look at when it was there. I was called by the service manage Luke and he told me that my suspension needed a pretty good overhaul. He told me both my front control arms were loose and the right one was even cracked, the driveshaft boot was torn and I had a pretty decent axle shaft leak, and the rear shocks were completely torn out. He sent me three pictures then he gave me an estimate for the work and it came to $4468.97. Luke told me the cracked control arm was a serious safety concern and wanted me to get the work done right away by ford. I picked my truck up and discussed with Luke how these things could happen. I haven’t owned my truck for five years and it has 105,000km on it. I bought it brand new from Sherwood ford. Luke told me it was wear and tear, and he could not give me a straight answer on what was going on. I spent over $80,000 on this truck and Luke told me it’s doesn’t matter how much you spend, things are going to break. I understand that, but to spend $4500 on a truck that’s nearly five years old is ridiculous. So, for that kind of money I wanted a second opinion. I took my truck from ford straight to another mechanics shop in town. I showed them everything that Luke had told me as well as the pictures and I wanted to know what they thought. I talked with them and they said the only thing they could agree with was the rear shocks needed to be replaced. The drive shaft had minimal play, standard for a lifted truck. The axle seal had a slight leak but nothing major. The front control arms didn’t have play, and there was no crack in the right front control arm. They had several of their techs look at it and none of them could find a crack. The owner of the mechanics shop told me the picture that Luke had sent me was not even my control arm it was a part for the steering and it had no crack as well. I had the company do the work on my suspension as they said the other issues were were not a concern. The service manager Luke Kowand and the service techs downright lied about the cracked control arm and tried to scare me into getting the work done first with them. This is outrageous! $4500 is a lot of money to spend on a truck that is city driven and not even five years old. I am very upset on how they tried to take advantage and scare me into getting the work done especially when the major safety concern was a down right lie. I would strongly advise Sherwood Ford to look into this issue and resolve this with me as well. I would also like my $170.00 back for the “diagnostic” that the “tech” did.
