Really FUN to drive! It is peppy and
handles great for an SUV. It feels
more like a sedan/coupe in performance
than an SUV at times.
It is a good compromise between a
viable SUV and a decent handling sport
If you are looking for a stylish,
entry level, around town, SUV with
excellent acceleration and handling
performance, 4WD and superior cargo
capacity, you have found it! It is
very easy to park and manuever.
Just remember-it is an entry level,
smaller size, SUV in its price point.
You can load it up with options but
you cannot change its basic build
materials and quality a whole lot.
Spacious cabin and excellent cargo
capacity.Peppy V-6 adds to
performance. Styling and appearance
are great. It stops very well even
without disc brakes in the
rear.Invoice pricing and factory
rebates/incentives are the norm.
Ignition key placement poor.Interior
cabin controls are CHEAP plastic.Need
another 12V power point in rear.
Seats are TOO FIRM! Brake dust is
HORRENDOUS! Need a Compass/OAT
gauge.Engine oil specified only
marketed by FORD. Offset crash test
results are MARGINAL.
My wife & i took a vacation to
tennessee from delaware. we saw this
vehicle on the road & we both fell in
love with it. when we got back home we
went & purchased ours. wouldn't give it
up for anything else. if another
vehicle was given to us we would sell
it.the other vehicle that is. we also
have two mustangs.
i like the way it drives & handles. it
is also good on gas mileage. it really
looks good too.
tthe cruise control could be set as low
as 25 mph, not 27 or 28 like ours is.
the dealer says they can't set it any
I've had my Escape for about 7 months
now and I love it! We had an Aerostar
mini-van and a 150 pick-up prior. My
husband and I decided to buy new
vehicles again and living in Colorado,
4X4's are the way to go. He upgraded
his truck to a 250 4X4 V10 but I wanted
something with better fuel economy than
that, so after many reviews and
discussions, the Escape won. It's
excellent for work, errands and going
into the mountains. It has all the
space I need for shopping too! I would
definately recommend the Escape to
anyone. The Escape is another Ford
product that tops the list on smaller
suv's and keeps the Ford name at it's
best and something to be proud of!
