Gas tank was slow filling. The dealer told me that almost all of their 2007 and 2008 Escapes have a problem where the gas tank vent gets clogged with ice and dirt. There is apparantly a TSB on it. They fixed and cleaned the fuel tank vent as per the TSB.
Warning light came on about a transmission problem, but nothing was apparent in the operation of the vehicle. Happened initally when operating on battery, but became more frequent, happening when running gas or electric engine.
Display indicated "Stop Safely Now" as vehicle came to a complete stop. Had to power off, unlock doors, and restart vehicle.
Two codes were reported, repaired under a combination of extended warranty and a technical service bulletin. The water pump needed to be repaired/replaced.
Coil and spark plug replaced. Codes indicated misfiring cylinder #5. Claim this was due to the engine detailing and cleaning resulted in chemical getting into coil and ruining it. Rplaced and works fine.
Gas filler tube updated - couldn't use fast setting at pump.
Rear suspension bushings replaced due to 'grunting' noises in rear.
Gas pedal felt 'sticky'. Throttle body assembly replaced.
