2012 Ford Escape SUV XLT 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
I bought this car 3 years ago. It now has 120k miles on it and is a 6 cylinder. This year Rudy blistered out over the rear wheels. Ford has a recall on these car up through 2011 for the rust issues. I hope the recall gets extended to cover 2012.
Really nothing I don't like about my 2012 Escape. I may even consider another one when I'm ready to buy a new vehicle. I'll just need to check out my options, because I would like to have the backup camera and I don't know if the new ones are equipped. It's the perfect size for me to run around town in or a short get away.

They do not make the 2012 style any longer so if you like the 2012 look then you need to buy a used Escape. I love my car and it has performed well. I bought it new in 2012 and now have 94,000 miles on it. No major repairs...knock on wood.
Bought this car new, five yrs old now w/75,000mi., the rig is falling apart ! Rust blistering around the rear wheels (which I see on most units), tailgate rust, tailgate will not work (does not open any longer), horn doesn't work (took to the dealership-they claim the part is $60......to put it on is over $200 !), heater will not blow on your feet (where else would you want it), when we got it, it averages 28-30mpg, 5yrs old it get 23mpg ??? My v-8 truck gets the same and this unit has a 4cylinder/2wd ! Trying to buy USA, hard to do with the crap FORD makes.
