  1. Aux input for ZD Escape.

    Hi all, My inlaws just picked up their new ZD Escape. When you press the 'mode' button on the sound system it will cycle through AM/FM, CD and AUX. How do you access the AUX input. There is no place/socket to plug anything in?

  3. Suspension too sloppy

    Hi all, It's been a while since I've had a chance to get on the forum. I rolled my '08 ZD Escape in the bush and had it replaced with a newer 2010 ZD. For all intents and purposes, the same car. However, it's not! ...of course. A few niggling things I can resolve but the most annoying thing is...

    I've had my 2010 ZD Escape for 3 years now, but haven't had a chance to take it on anything more challenging than a couple of gravel roads. And the only time the 4wd switch got activated was when my son accidentally hit it with his hand in a KFC carpark. Just interested in finding out how...

  5. LPG for Ford Escape

    Hi, Just purchasing a 2007 2.3L XLT Escape and was wondering if anyone could tell me if LPG can be fitted, more specifically, is it possible to fit lpg with a tank sitting under the car rather than inside?? Indication of costs would be useful. Cheers.

  6. Escape Towbar

    Hi, I have just bought a towbar for my BA Escape from the wreckers "with all bolts and fittings" and after much musing, thinking and trying different things cannot see how it can possibly fit. It has Mazda on it so is obviously from a Mazda Tribute. Will a Mazda Tribute towbar fit an Escape?...
