I just traded in a Land Rover (Freelander) for this Ford and can not believe how much better this is. I had the Land Rover for only 13 months and had no idea how much I disliked it. The Escape is a great value and very, very comfortable and I am very happy that I made the trade.
Comfort and price.
The driver's side head rest is tilted forward somewhat. This should be more adjustable.
