I just purchased a 2010 Ford Escape Hybrid with 117,000 km, certified one owner and in what appeared to be decent shape. We put 1000km on it without any issues except leaking tires but it is currently sitting in my driveway with a no start/no crank condition. I am looking for a shade tree to work under for hours and hours but it will be pouring rain here this week. If you or anyone on the site has any suggestions I will follow them up. Best case is I just have to clean the throttle body (believe it or not). Worst case is that it will be heading to the breakers with our investment in it. I may create a new post to attract some attention and not hijack the post. My readers do emissions and all monitors were green when I purchased it and they still are. The problem is with the rather sophisticated way the ICE and main battery work together as a complete system. Hybrids are a good choice for a vehicle but if you are out of manufacturers warranty, you have to be prepared to risk all your Kapital on the project.Posts in this Thread:
