I absolutely love my Escape! I am really happy that I bought it, especially as a college student traveling back and forth between campus and home. In fact, I was almost able to pack my brother's entire dorm room in my car. The car is very nice looking, it handles well, has plenty of power under the hood, and is easy to control. I would recommend this car to anybody.
I love the headlights for some reason! And I love how the seats fold down and create loads of space.
Even though I have the XLT, (4wd, 6 cylinder, electric driver seat, 6 CD stereo), I still feel that it lacks in luxury. I wish I had lighted mirrors, and maybe even some cup holders in the back. It is more of a truck than an SUV.
