Terrible brakes and awful safety features
By deekay18 on
Vehicle
2012 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Review
Safety: The brakes on this SUV is notorious to be the worst braking system in it's class. It takes 154 feet to stop this SUV from 60MPH and brake fade is expected, which adds on more footage. This means that it takes a minimum of 11 lengths of Ford Focus' to stop the Escape at the best without brake fade. Also, the Escape uses drum brakes on the rear. What is this 1990? The brakes also lock up frequently and this is a known problem all over the internet. The IIHS crash test ratings are not great either.

Agreed. It is clear this individual read some official reviews and now offers nothing but measured generalizations that are obviously not of his own.

I do own a 2009 and 2012 escape, I have already posted a review on the 2009's but will wait until late Autumn 2014 to post my review on the 2012.
