Hi,

My '08 Escape Hybrid has been in the shop since the night of August the 6th after it completely died and would not restart, with barely 5000 miles on it. Besides the nice "Please Pull Over Safely" message, I got the "Regenative Braking Disengaged", and that was it. 24 days and two Flown in Ford Engineers later, and they still can not get my vehicle to start. I can not even begin to tell you how many parts have been thrown at it. I was called today by a Ford Customer Resolution Specialist who has started the process for Ford to buy back my Hybrid. I want another one! I was very pleased with my vehicle during the past 4 months. I totally believe this is an isolated incident and have faith lightning will not strike me again with a lemon!
