Charlatan Engineering - Avoid at Any Cost
By gormarx on
2012 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
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.
Mileage is sort of decent, but nowhere as advertised. Nothing good about this junk.
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.
