"This ford escape was my first car and if you are looking to get a great first car for someone this is just a beautiful car, the only problem is there is too many of them on the road. The car also does beautifully in the snow."
"I bought my Escape brand new in 2006 and it has 221,000 miles on it. I've had only routine maintenance and minimal at that. Very conscientious about oil changes and the car just keeps going and going like the Energizer Bunny. I average 23 mpg every fill-up but more if I'm on the highway on a trip. It has been a great car for the money - sporty looking and acting, roomy inside for gear, dogs, saddles, furniture... it feels like a best friend - comfortable and dependable."
