No heat in the back seats
By jriley3 on


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


I am very pleased with my vehicle.
It handles well and is great on gas.
The only problems I have are there are no cupholders or vents for heat amd AC for the back seats.
When you live in Maryland, which gets really cold and hot, there is a need for cool air and heat, especially for small children, who now have to sit with blankets across their legs until the spring.
I was told by Ford to use the vents from the front and turn them toward the back.
Thanks Ford!!!
Who would think to check for vents in the back seats when purchasing a car?
I thought it was a standard.
So the new thing is to pay more and get additional vents in our vehicles to keep our children warm? Really?!

Best Features

All other features are great, Sync, dashboard with very visible messages. Awesome! Seat adjustments, trip tracker, etc.

Worst Features

Put vents in the back seats on all vehicles. Make it a standard. Jeez! O, and lights for the vanities would be nice too. Don't make owner's feel nickled and dimed/. Otherwise, the vehicle is great. Thank you.
