Just bought my new 2013 Ford Escape SE model.
I really like the new design and ofcourse the great mpg.
So far no problems at all!
Don't get some of the negativer reviews, but I guess everyone's differant.
I love the power lift gate feature.
It comes in handy a lot.
The only improvement I can think of is the front plastic fender thing.
Gives it kind of a cheap look to it.
1.6 BASE.... SILVER WITH SANDSTONE
Received ours 2 weeks ago... a 7 week wait.
After 350 miles we are super happy with the 1.6
Quick,Quiet,Qumphy plus average 30 to 33 mpg on hwy.
For under $23,000k cash it's a sharp ride !
The SYNC works fine and has all we need, we carry our TOM TOM GPS and a Radar Detector in the rear floor compartment,
They are always there when needed.
