2012 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I have had my 2012 Escape Limited with the V6 engine for 10 months and 10,000 miles.
There has been no reason to bring it back to the dealer since purchase.
I am getting 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway.
I love the looks and features of this well proportioned SUV.
With full time 4 wheel drive it handles great in rain and snow.
Never any slipping or sliding.
For the money I think you get a lot of vehicle.

Best Features

I love the blue tooth and voice commands.

Worst Features

The vehicle is noisy. Engine and wind noise is pronounced. Extra insulation and thicker glass would make a big difference. The radio doesn't sound premium as advertised. I weigh 225 and the seats aren't as supportive as I would like. The fonts on the GPS are too small for me to easily read as I drive. Memory seats are surprisingly not available. The faux Crome and shiny interior plastics appear cheap.
