Ford Escape’s Safety Features

Ford Escape's Safety


When you need an advanced vehicle to keep you and your family safe on the road, the 2017 Ford Escape can do precisely that. The Ford’s Escape safety features include both protective and preventative measures.

The Escape is available in three trim levels: S, SE, and Titanium. Standard on all Escape models are antilock brakes, traction and stability control, airbags, automatic headlights, and a rearview camera. The airbags will help protect you and your passengers in case of an accident. But where the real protection lies is in preventing an accident from happening in the first place.

Here, the antilock brakes, automatic headlights, stability control, and rearview camera come into play. These features help you stay in control, stay visible, and see what’s behind you before anything happens.

Available on the SE trim are more active features, like rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. These features come standard on the Titanium trim. Optional for the Titanium model is adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic high-beam control, automatic wipers, lane departure warning and intervention, front and side parking sensors, and an automated parking system.

Ford Free Brake Pad Offer Helps Keep Customers Safe

Ford Free Brake Pad Offer Helps Keep Customers SafeNothing is more annoying than discovering that your car’s warranty has run out mere days before you need a repair—especially when it comes to buying new brake pads. To ensure that their customers don’t hesitate when their brakes start squealing, Ford has announced a free brake pad offer that is sure to get you into your local Ford dealership service center, lickity split.

Basically, if you own a Ford Motor Company vehicle (Ford, Lincoln or Mercury) and you purchase a set of Motorcraft brake pads, you are entitled to free replacement pads for as long as you own the vehicle. All you need to do is take it in to your Ford or Lincoln dealer or a Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center.

“This program reflects our commitment to providing customers with an excellent ownership experience regardless of the age of their vehicles,” said Frederiek Toney, President of Ford Customer Service. “Plus, when you purchase Motorcraft parts at a Ford or Lincoln dealer, or a Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center, you know you’re getting the right parts installed by the right people.”

Keep in mind that there are a few exceptions to this, since Ford isn’t just handing out free brakes. The pads have to be worn down to less than three millimeters to be eligible and the buyer also has to pay for labor still. Also, fleet and commercial vehicles are excluded from the offer.

As of July 1, any purchases made for qualified vehicles will be part of the free brake pad offer. To get your chance to partake in this opportunity, stop in to Shults Ford of Harmarville today!
