Great SUV. Looked at Jeep liberty, Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V and the Nissan Xterra. At 6'2" I have enough room up front. Good MPG, V6 has good power, easy to drive around town. Road noise and small fuel tank is the only down side on road trips. I had zero problems with the Escape so far.
V6 power, rides nice and great in snow! 19/24 MPG. Leg room.
Too much road noise on highway, needs bigger fuel tank.
