Governed with a glich
My wife bought the 2004 Escape XLT while I was deployed in Iraq. We had it sent to Germany ( my current duty station ) and come to find out it is governed at 100 MPH. Very frustrating for autobon driving. Is there a way to increase the speed at which it is governed without defaulting my warranty?
Also, after driving it for 2 hours the other day I shut it off and turned it back on an hour later, the engine sputtered and sounded as if it had a few plugs loose. I looked in the manual and there is a "Note" about the possibility of damaging equipment and catching fire if such a condition exists and warranted a mention in the manual why wasn't it fixed prior to production? I turned the car off and then back on a little while later and everything was fine. This, however has shaken our confidence in a vehicle that we planned on driving all over Europe.
