What did you do to your Escape today?

Postby AmericanPride - July 21st, 2015, 6:54 pm

I think it's time we started this thread. Is it what it sounds like.

What did you do today? Oil change, drove cross country, drove to grab some dinner, etc...





Today I unloaded my Escape from a road trip. I just put about 1,000 miles on it driving to Seattle and back. Took my family on a little vacation. Did the Space Needle, Zoo, etc. Got a City Pass.

Car ran like a champ. Apparently my battery lost a cell while I was out. We stayed at a KOA campground and on the last day, I turned the key...click click click. I know that it wasn't my alternator at least, monitored it on my UltraGauge the whole drive.

Stopped at 2 auto parts places and had it checked. Confirmed at both. I just grabbed a new 84 month and dropped it in. The old one was from Jan 08.

After getting a rock in the windshield a couple of weeks ago, the Escape was at a Ford dealership today for a new windshield. These days, most windshields are third-party. For the asking, and at no additional cost, they installed an oem windshield. Of course, it may have come from the same factory as the third-party ones. Nice to have an unblemished windshield, but I wish they had a shade band across the top.

This weekend my E will be driven up to PA for a soccer tournament, and next week (hopefully) it'll get some new fog lights.

I've got it in the front compartment for the garage door opener. I'm just going to make a little angled mount and attach it with the velcro. Then I can unhook it from the cradle or unhook the velcro to access the buttons
