The recliner mechanisms may be missing the third pawl required for seat back strength, resulting in a loose seat back.

I was shopping for Ford in VA/MD because our local dealers from Western PA for whatever reason are not able to provide comparable discounts off sticker prices in addition to nationwide discounts that Ford itself has everywhere (not sure what is the reason for that - the same goes for VW cars by the way, but not for Subarus or Mazdas it seems). I contacted a number of dealers asking for quotes, etc the day after Thxgiving (on Friday) - Jason Robles though was the only one who was able to complete the full cycle of communications/answer my questions/etc __within one day__ (on Friday itself)- the rest were either too busy or too slow or too lazy or whatever __and__ Koons were giving a decent (vs others) knockoff from the sticker price (plus they have a very good selections of models, 2017 Escape SE 4WD 2.0L EcoBoost, including the one I was OK to buy color-wise)... so I drove on Saturday (the next day) and got the car there... the only thing pending is (as I am from Western PA and never purchased out of state) is to get PA title/registration/plates - will see how that last thing goes within next ~30 days or so ...
