Anyone know about the Throttle Body Issues that have been documented in some Ford vehicles? Any specifics on which models, years, and engines these were? I've read about them online for Fusions and some full size Transits and Transit Connects. I'm researching for a potential TC purchase.

Anyway to look for this problem in a pre-purchase inspection?

I have a 2016 Escape with the 2.5 and luckily I haven't experienced this problem....in fact the Escape has been totally trouble-free. My 2016 was built in 8/15 (apparently the month before the issue began). The thing that I find strange is that they list "2015-2016 Ford Escape built 9/1/15 to 3/14/16 in Louisville, KY".....why would they still be building 2015's a month or more after my 2016 was built?

Hmmmmm shrug I just found the list off that site. Super glad to hear that you haven't had any trouble with your vehicle! I did find that Ford issued repair recalls (extended warranty) for certain models for this issue but the list I found for those were all 2009-2013 models. It doesn't seem that the extended warranty for this issue applied to newer models after 2013. https://www.ncconsumer.org/news-art...y-to-cover-throttle-body-assemblies.html Although, I have read this is an issue with some other models and years of a variety of vehicles. Obviously from the list above, some still experience this problem.
