My husband and I were initially concerned about buying the Escape in its first year. Ours is now 6 years old and we still love it. We have had no problems with it, and hope to have it at least another 6 years. Drives like a dream. I get between 23 and 26 miles to the gallon, so no complaints there. It's the perfect size for us. We needed something that could carry cargo, be comfortable for our dogs and was easy to maneuver. The Escape fit the bill perfectly. When my husband's full size truck needs to be replaced, we will get another Escape. I can't even think about replacing my current Escape.
Size, Size, Size.
The way the back seats fold down could be improved.
