2013 Ford Escape SE 4dr SUV (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


10,000 miles now. Rides better but still poor. Poor controls and you can not turn on the front wiper with out turning on the rear.
Oor fuel economy. It now gets 22 mpg on the highway and 22 around town. various electrical glitches. Radio stays on when car is locked and doors are closed. No passing gear after 60 mph. would not recomend this car to anyone. Transmission failed at 76,000 miles and car was totaled by company.

Have to agree, there is some serous issues with the electronics. Sometimes my keyless remotes wont work, or the radio will not work. The panic button on the keyless is in a bad position as well. You turn off you car at store or something and your thumb can trigger the panic button. "Hey look at me". As for the drivetrain and gearing, the throttle response is horrible, in CO the speed limit is 75, it takes a second or two before the care does anything when you accelerate. I will not let my Wife or kids drive this abomination.
