Looked at small AWD vehicles and picked the Escape based on ride, looks and mileage. In the four months we have driven the Escape it has done everything I had hoped for and more. We saved on gas usage by half over our other vehicles and other than oil changes it has not seen the dealer for any reason. The fit and finish on the car was perfect and even with the four cylinder the performance has been great.
Reliable and looks good even when it is dirty. The kids like the room in the back which is nicely sized for early teens, and easy on the gas usage.
Lumbar support on the drivers seat at least and compass and temp display.
