Ford Escape: Driving Hints / Cold Weather Precautions. Breaking-In. Driving Economically

Cold Weather Precautions

The functional operation of some components and systems can be affected at temperatures below approximately -13°F (-25°C).

Breaking-In

You need to break in new tires for approximately 300 mi (480 km). During this time, your vehicle may exhibit some unusual driving characteristics.

Driving Economically

The following helps to improve fuel consumption:

  • Drive smoothly, accelerate gently and anticipate the road ahead to avoid heavy braking.
  • Regularly check your tire pressures and make sure that they are inflated to the correct pressure.
  • Follow the recommended maintenance schedule and carry out the recommended checks.
  • Plan your journey and check the traffic before you set off. It is more efficient to combine errands into a single trip whenever possible.
  • Avoid idling the engine in cold weather or for extended periods. Start the engine only when you are ready to set off.
  • Do not carry unnecessary weight in your vehicle as extra weight wastes fuel.
  • Do not add unnecessary accessories to the exterior of your vehicle, for example running boards. If you use a roof rack, remember to fold it down or remove it when not in use.
  • Do not shift into neutral when you are braking or when your vehicle is slowing down.
  • Shut all windows when driving at high speeds.
  • Switch off all electric systems when not in use, for example air conditioning. Make sure that you unplug any accessories from the auxiliary power points when not in use.
