Jones West Ford, Reno Nevada Complaint - 2006 Ford Escape's 'Start Noise'
RENO, NEVADA -- My sweet little machine did this scrape noise early this year, right after a snowstorm. The "scrape" sound I laid to snow on the engine. Well, that wasn't so. Its made the sound gradually more frequently since January, and now I notice almost the same sound when engaging the A/C.
Since 'Essy' needed an oil change I asked the Reno dealership to check its 'sound'. Their comment was, "Escapes do that".
I'd like to know how long this will happen before she won't start. She still has some warranty since the mileage is close to 28000 miles.
