    New tires in rear only - hidden danger?

    The only "better" is the spiff the salesman's trying to get. They say put the better tires on the rear, but I don't think I buy that. The front wheels do 'most all the work. They say new on the rear reduces the chance the back end might get away from you. All that said, you folks deal with winter I can only shiver about. If the sidewalls are OK, my vote is leave it like it is.

    Negative battery terminal

    On the newer ones, that's what you unplug to banish the evil stop/start.

    How many o2 sensors?

    Dang! All these threads are ancient. Two - one upstream from the CAT, one downstream

    Oil leak in ecoboost?

    My F150 had an intermittent oil leak. I just carried a couple of quarts of oil with me. Just a long-duration oil change.
  5. I don't think you can lock it with the key inside. Hope not, anyway. You may be able to lock it with the inside button and toss the key inside. I still expect not.

    Man, are there no new threads in here? How did a shock get broken?

    K and N intake

    Old thread, but no. However, if you're not willing to spend more money improving the exhaust, a CAI of any brand will have no benefit. If it can't breathe out, it won't be able to breathe in.

    Miserable gas mileage

    Kinda late, but I've had my '19 Titanium for three weeks. It's averaging 20.1 through three tanks. How are you calculating?

    Hello from DC!

    Welcome aboard. I had a 2008 Speed 3 I traded on a '15 Mustang EB Convertible last year. The motors are so similar, they must be first cousins. The Escape's motor shares some stuff, too.

    Cleaning wax around emblems

    Microfiber towel and a fingertip. Yeah, I know - thread from the dead.

    Before you had your Escape Ecoboost, what did you have?

    Since my Escape didn't replace anything, I guess there was no "before" in this context. Before my '15 EB Mustang, the previous Ford was an '89 F-150 with a healthy appetite for gas and alternators.

    Where is the best place to purchase extended warranty from

    IMHO, an extended warranty is a needless crap-shoot. You're betting something that's covered will fail, they're betting it won't. The odds are on their side. When I bought my EB Mustang, I took what the credit union quoted for minimum coverage and put that in a savings account. I've added to it over the months, but if I need it, it'll be there. If I don't need it (and I'm betting on that), it'll STILL be there.

    Hi, all from N. Florida

    Hello, All. I've lurked for a few days - figured I'd sign up. I just bought a '19 Escape Titanium, looking (and lurking) to learn about my new ride. I also have a '15 EB Mustang convertible and an '03 Dodge Hemi Ram quad cab.
