Should of stuck with Honda
By danc80 on


2013 Ford Escape SEL 4dr SUV AWD (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


After having 4 Honda CRVs in a row I got very bored and decided it was time for a change.
I had seen newspaper articles and tv ads about how Ford was really coming around and producing a better product so I decided to give Ford a chance and go American!
Wow was I wrong.
The car was in the shop less than a week after I bought it and then back in again 3 days later.
I have had issues with the sunroof rattling annoyingly.
The door lock not functioning properly and the Sync system has major flaws including not recognizing major Roads!!!
Never in my life have I ever had an issue with any Honda ever. Ford is not ready I really made a mistake I feel like I bought a used car

Best Features

I love the external design of the car and the features they give you are great if they would actually work. The seats are comfortable but the pedals are too close together.

Worst Features

better quality more testing. I feel like some of the issues with the features could of been figured out with better testing before releasing the product. I understand its a new body style and model but I have twice bought new body style and versions of the Honda CRV and have always been extatic

Bought a new Escape 2.0L SEL and quite happy with it. Didn't get Nav or sunroof. Good visibility and great to drive. Only got 2500 miles on it and recently got 30 miles to the gallon.
