2005 Escaape Lmtd ONE week old dies while driving, at dealer 2nd time
Beautiful 2005 Escape Limited (W/Luxury Pkg...heated seats, mirrors) at the dealer for 2nd time within first week of leasing it. Abs light flashes on while driving and within 30 seconds dies.
#1 at dealer: 108 ground between engine and transmission fixed
(Cd player+ headlights+turn signal dead, air bag light flashed...somehow by pumping on gas pedal it started up and got it to dealer.)
#2 at dealer: Ordering a processor. Sits for 5 days at dealer till part arrives.
(This time, engine would not turn-over at all so it was towed to dealer; CD player worked, airbag light did not flash, no headlights.) There it sits as I write today.
1) Would a processor prevent the ENGINE from turning over? There was nothing when turning key.
2) Can I request a different vehicle? Have them keep that one and give me a different new one? When you are driving-moving and the car just dies on the road...well, lucky I wasn't rear-ended ...2X! I have 2 YEARS to go on lease!
Any info or suggestions are appreciated.
