This small SUV is by far my favorite vehicle. I always liked the Mercury version (Mariner) but decided to look at the Escape since it was basically the same with a slightly different look and was a few grand less. Well I loved the ride. Can't say anything bad about the car.
Love the V6 power. Nice handling, doesn't feel top heavy.
My major complaint is lack of lumbar support in the seats and the lack of a foot rest for the left foot when driving. Seems like a little thing but on a long trip it would be nice to have.
