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...
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?
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.
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?...
I am have some serious trouble with my tribute... It has the ford V6 3.0L. After it warms up, the spark is all over the place. This is all cylinders, not just one! When I turn it on and off the problem goes for a bit and then comes back. Ive taken it to a few mechanics who can only...
Hello! I have a US spec 05 Escape Hybrid. One of the differences between the US and the Australian Escape is that in my car I cannot switch on the 4WD manually, only I have is an auto mode. In your cars (ZC and ZD) there's a button. I'd like to modify my car in order to switch on the 4wd manually...
II have in my introductions listed that i have asked questions on other Mazda forums, with limited / poor responses from members. I am going to copy some questions strait in i have asked previously elsewhere. Any help, theories etc would be aprecciated, thanks.
Hey there just wondering does...

Sorry I'm sure this would have been covered, I just don't know these cars that well,
2001 Escape, and the back door is playing up, the central locking doesn't lock the glass. Ideas? Stuffed actuator?
Here's Graham Smith's buyers guide from Carsguide.com.au
I encourage members who also own the cars in question post up and tell us about your experience so we can help others with their purchase.
I thought it would be interesting for people to post up the cost and location of their service as to help others decide what to expect and where to go.
Your help would be appreciated.

I am looking to buy a new (09) Escape in the next week or so and after reviewing all the photos I have taken of the cars in the lot, there are two different front grilles on the 09 models. Some have the chrome slat grille, others have the black honeycomb grille.
I'm preferring the...

I have an August 06 ZC Escape and i would like to know if anyone has a fix for the shocking high beam lights other than fiting driving lights. This is the first car i have seen where only the inside beams work on high beam
:confused: My Escape is fitted with a non retractable radio antenna. It must be possible to remove it for car washes etc, but when I use a shifter on the base of the antenna it will not budge. Is it jammed or am I doing the wrong thing?
I need to remove the antenna and check the earthing, I...
I've actually seen a few of the latest JD Escape around and I honestly quite like the look of them, especially at the rear where it's a massive improvement over the old model. Sure, it's not the latest design, but it's certainly competitive.
In the below article, Osbourne admits that Ford haven't...
Attached are photo of the Ford Escape Adventure Concept revealed at the Tokyo Motor show. In a nut-shell, it appears they've tried to kineticize the current Escape with some success. It's certainly an improvement over the current model, that's for sure! This isn't an oil painting but considering...
The new ZD Escape will be launched at Adelaide Motor Show on April 2 with on sale date 1st April.

I went to my local ford dealer on the weekend. And I see they have the Escapes on special. They are finished bloody well inside. I have the option of an XLS Escape in Panther Black or a BFI Seduce XR6 !!! ZF Auto.
I am over the whole falcon thing for the moment and would love a...
Saw this posted on Blueovalnews:
For us old timers used to Imperial gallons, US 34 mpg = 42 mpg in the city!
With New York set to switch its 13,000 CNG powered Crown Victorias to Escapes and other Hybrids by 2012, makes you realise how much political clout for change is out there....
What happened to this? Was this meant to be a sneak preview of the current Escape? It looks great yet our Escape looks so outdated and a replacement (that X-max?) can't come fast enough.

Good to hear some positive news coming from Ford! Now they just need to sell out Falcon over there...
Attached are three photos of the new Ford Escape due for release shortly in the USA.
I can't say I'm a fan of the black plastic they've used, especially at the rear although over-all it isn't bad. Unfortunately I'd have to say that the Toyota Rav4 and new CRV look better though.
I'm unsure if...
Attached are the first photos of the new 2008 Mercury Mariner which is a rebadged Ford Escape sold in the USA. Importantly, it's a re-badged version of the new Ford Escape that's due to be revealed soon. It's not all-new (I think) but it's a major facelift as you can see that even the doors are...
I just ordered my new Ford Escape limited, (traded in my 98 Explorer :( )
Q: Has anyone installed / hard wired an iPod into the stereo system in an Australian Escape yet?
I have been reading the usa forums and they use units from pie.net? I can get from my local apple dealer the...
Just as our Escape recieves a facelift, the American one appears to have had a much larger one. Along with Edge inspired headlights, the whole side appears to be different as well.
Looks good that's for sure - a lot better than our Edge.
My father is looking at a 2005 Ford Escape Limited. This car is fully otioned up as it was a ex -excecutive Ford car. I was wondering if there is anything in praticular we should look at with this model? It has only done 12000 km's.
Any advise would be good thankyou.
In a disaster for Honda, photos of the new CRV were taken of the car completely uncovered. These four photos are from:http://www.worldcarfans.com/spyphotos.cfm/country/jcf/spyphotoID/6060707.002/honda/honda-cr-v-spy-photos
It looks different! I like the rear end (very MDX like) although the ford...
Ford Australia today pulled back the covers on the new ZC Escape SUV, boasting fresh exterior styling, a more luxurious and convenient interior package and upgraded powertrains for improved driving quality.
"The Ford Escape has been well recognised as a great vehicle. The new look and features...
Yes the steering wheel is on the wrong side, but it's a mirror image of what the yet-to-be-officially-revealed interior of the new Escape will look like. Looks good to me.
For those that don't know, the Mariner is based on the Ford Escape which is sold with a hybrid option in the USA. Apparently Ford are considering selling the hybrid here, although personally I'd like to see an hybrid all-new version because the current model is getting dated.
Hopefully the production version of this is the goods because the mid-to-small SUV segment may be the most popular in a few years because it'll be all anyone can afford. The current Escape sells poorly, probably due to it's American styling inside and out, so hopefully this one will be a little...
I have a 2001 Escape with only 41k km on clock and end of warranty comming up. During the last service, dealer noted that front disk rotors are worn out and needs replacing. Dealer says this is normal and not covered under warranty. First time I have ever heard of rotors wearing out before...
If you go to the web site of the fuel companies you will discover that premium unleaded fuel has a higher octane rating. And it costs more.
I am considering buying a new Ford Escape.
Should I use regular unleaded or premium unleaded fuel?
Hi everyone. Frequent viewer, first time poster.
I've an Escape XLT 2002. My biggest beef with it is the creaking in the front suspension.
I've had the Ford engineer go over it and he couldn't find anything, other than to say 'it shouldn't make that noise'.
I've had everything replaced...
Hello to all! The 2005 US Escape/Mazda Tribute has gone to a floor shift. Anyone heard of a similar plan for our model? Local Mazda dealer indicated a move to floorshift for the 2005 Aussie Tribute but no one at Ford (local dealer) had heard anything. One of the main turn offs for the Escape is...
