Charlatan Engineering - Avoid at Any Cost

Vehicle

2012 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

I had to take the car to fix the door so it doesn't fill with water when it rains, that's how poorly manufactured it is. Sync is a bug-infested, malfunctioning piece of crap by Microsoft, as always. The features and control placement is idiotic: opening the cabin does not turn on any lights in the car, ever; the headlights are turned on in one spot but switching to high beam is located at another, squeezed among the wiper controls. The wipers have a dozen settings, all of them too fast or too slow but never right; the AC/heating i loud an annoying, as is the engine. I've driven Soviet cars with far more comfortable and user-friendly design. Never again an American piece of crap.

Best Features

Mileage is sort of decent, but nowhere as advertised. Nothing good about this junk.

Worst Features

Just kill the American car industry; these morons will never get it right. My friend's KIA feels like spaceship from the future compared to this Ford heap of excrement.
