I dunno about the other guys, but I love my Escape!

2011 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
In the few months that I've had my 2011 Escape XLT, I cannot say enough about how great it is! The short story is that it is comfortable, handles like a dream, is equipped with all that I was looking for (and more), and the power from the 3.0 V6 surprised the heck outta me the other day, while merging onto the freeway going UPHILL! Plus, I've easily averaged over 30mpg on freeway trips!
As far as having to remove the three headrests before being able to lower the rear seatback (to flatten-out the cargo space and make it larger)... I simply removed them when I first got the vehicle and left them out.
Ford continues to make the best and highest-quality cars you can get... bar none!
- QUALITY throughput!
- V6 Power and Responsiveness
- Storage capacity
