Mine is a build date of 11/2012 so a little earlier than yours. Nasty hesitation on all fuels. That splice on the harness made it a new machine. Must have realized 50HP. Maybe they just didn't do it right? Hoping for the best for you.

Another Update. Car is now back home. Dealer had it a week. Claimed to need to keep it that long because they needed to test drive it to insure repair was complete. One of the days they had it, (Tuesday)it didn't even move. (I can prove this) At any rate here is the history of the times the car was in for the same thing. This is on invoices that I have kept. It doesn't appear that they are correcting anything. Just throwing parts at it. I am very disappointed to say the least. In a week that they insisted they needed it they drove it a whopping 30 miles. We'll see if it's now fixed.

So far so good but last time it was ok for around 800 miles. We don't drive much, not a lot of miles, so who knows if it's fixed. I am sure hoping that they fixed it this time. I am still concerned about the number of reports that I have run across about repeat problems but that could be my paranoia, we'll see.

It sounds as if I am having a similar issue with my Escape, at least related to the wiring harness:

I purchased mine from CarMax in October 2014, and was told that all recalls had been performed. Within a few months, I started receiving the "Engine Fault Service Now" light, and the vehicle sputtered and acted as if it would die on occasion. I took it in to my local dealership, and they informed me that they knew of an issue with the harness, repaired it, and it should be good to go.

Fast forward several months, to Feb. 2016, and the issue starts again. This time, I did experience the car die on a couple of occasions when backing out of a parking space, along with the usual "Engine Fault" message, random sputtering and rough idling, and a constant check-engine light. Using my OBDII monitor, I discovered the same fault code as found before:

Fault Code P0236: Turbo/Super Charger Boost Sensor “A” Circuit Range/Performance.

So, I took it back to my local dealership for a second time. This time, the dealership (again) said that they fixed the issue via new splices, but charged me over $100 for the repair, as they stated that the original recall (supposedly performed by a dealership near the CarMax where I purchased it) was no longer "covered" and they could not guarantee their work. With hesitation, I paid the fee in the hopes that the issue would be done.

Fast forward to the last month. It's happening again. Same fault code, same performance issues. I am at my wit's end with it, and am hesitant to take it back to the same dealership, as I'm afraid nothing will be done. I have started to attempt to get Ford involved but wasn't sure where to begin. I feel certain that all the repairs have been "band aid" fixes instead of doing the work properly and with new parts. Part of me wants to just find a new dealership and just be done, but part of me wants the current one to fix it, especially now that I've paid them for work that obviously didn't fix the problem . . .

Wow this is exactly my concern. Your story is a clone of my problems. I am pretty disappointed in Ford at this point. We are not the only ones who are having this problem in my opinion. Ford needs to step up and find a solution or convince me that my Escape is the exception and not the rule. Making the same repair, that doesn't fix the problem, is not the solution. At this point mine is not acting up but as I said in a earlier post we don't put on a lot of miles. Only 45 miles on it since the "repair"
As a side note I keep getting calls from salesmen at both dealerships wanting to sell me a newer Escape or another new Ford as Ford is currently offering incentives. They claim that a used Escape is in high demand and have offered as much as the original base MSRP as a trade in value. Of course I have declined those offers.
I wish you well and hope we are not just being kicked down the road.

That offer seems pretty low-ball. I'm sure they mean base MODEL MSRP, before options and transportation, against full MSRP on a new one. Not so good. Good declination.
