A Nice car but has flaws
By fpconlult on


2013 Ford Escape S 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


The first impression is this is a good looking car.
The interior is well laid out and includes what all back seat passengers want, rear air vents. Acceleration is good and the car handles well.

Steering over compensates in panic situations. The Air/Heat controls not easy to use, unles using the display screen. The entertainment system starts with music on low then suddenly blasts you. Entertainment system changes mode when car starts(radio, MP3, Satelite).
Only get 310 miles per tank of gas.
Driver seat occasionally adjusts full forward when engine turned off.
Too many controls on steering column is distracting and confusing.

Best Features

The car has nice excelleration and is easy to park.

Worst Features

Larger gas Tank. Simplify the Steering Column, thwere are too many controls. The touch screen Entertainment system needs some simplification it has so many features it's difficult to use and causes you to get distracted from driving. Correct over steering that occurs when you have to make quick driving changes.
