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


I will not purchase another one and cannot wait to get out of this one.

We purchased the V6 Hybrid in January and in February the bumper clips were broken, the cold air proved to be rough on transmission, various plastic pieces are broken and when putting back seat windows down, the vibration is unbearable.

This is the second Ford Vehicle I have owned that I believe to be a lemon. I have owned many Ford vehicles and may consider others in the future but it certainly will not be an Escape.

Best Features

Sync system (when it works) Sirrius radio maneuverability

Worst Features

*Fix the vibration *Use better quality materials (less plastic) *Fix the transmission issue that makes it rough and sluggish when cold outside *Fix the suspension snap, crackle, pop noises *Fix brakes so they don't give out when having to break hard (different from abs issues)
