Great vehicle, fun to drive. I've owned over 30 automobiles including 4 SUV's, but this car is the best value (looks, performance, quality. price) for the investment.


Best Features

V-6, sunroof and head/leg room.


Worst Features

Outside temperature gauge, more frills.

Review

I REALLY AM FOND OF MY ESCAPE, HOWEVER, THE GAS MILAGE HAS BEEN A DISAPOINTMENT.THERE IS NO WAY THAT THE TRUCK IS GETING THE ADVERTISED GAS MILAGE.I AM ALSO SOMEWHAT DISAPOINTED IN THE PAINT FINISH. THE FINISH SEEMS TO SCRATCH QUITE EASILY.


Best Features

I LIKE MOST OF THE FEATURES OF THE TRUCK.


Worst Features

BETTER GAS MILAGE AND A TOUGHER PAINT FINISH.QUIETER RIDE.

Maybe isolated. I traded in my Escape before the 3 year/36000 mile warranty. Had multiple electronic issues. Dash lights would go out, stereo lights, brake lights.They were fairly minor but I wasn't about to keep after warranty expired.Would Still have car otherwise. It;s fun to drive, milege wasnt' too bad

Review

I really like my Escape. It moves well, handles well and is comfortable for my 6'1" frame. Visability is excellent and parks nimbly. At 31,000 miles my only problems have been a faulty CD player and some weird electical problems when it rains hard. I am concerned about reliability over time, especially the electronics. Overall, I enjoy it, use to carry lots of stuff and would recommend it to others.


Best Features

Driving visability, peppy acceleration, good ride, comfortable seating


Worst Features

Change gear selector lever, improve the CD player, re-do dash wiring
