Safercar.gov shows three complaints for peeling paint on the 2017 Escape. There are no similar complaints for the 2016 or 2018 model years. There are no manufacturer communications concerning this issue. While it clearly exists, it doesn’t seem widespread. Check Ford forums to see if others experienced it and what they are doing about it.
