I have no complaints. My 01 Escape has almost 100k miles and everything is still in like new working order. Hardly any squeaks or rattles. The 4 wheel independent suspension and AWD make this SUV outstanding in all conditions. GOOD QUALITY!
Without a doubt the All Wheel Drive and traction in slippery conditions performs outstanding!
The only suggestion I have is with the windshield wiper (front and rear) control levers. The front you have to lift up to turn on, and the rear you have to pull down to turn on. I sometimes get mixed up and end up spraying the windshields. Overall excellent vehicle.
