The Ford Escape I own is fun to drive. I drive both city and highway and avg. 23.08 MPG. I found this SUV to have all the room I need. I can seat 5 people with comfort. Great sound system, good air, sun roof is easy to operate as well as all other systems and controls.
The only item I would replace is the speedometer. The graduations are difficult to read. The numbers are 10,20,30,40,50,Etc. While on roadways with a 45, 55, or 65 mph limit it's difficult to see. the numbers could be bigger and have 5 mph settings.
