"My 2001 Escape (2.0 liter - 5 speed) is still running great with 189,750 miles on it. Cosmetically, must people think that it's only a couple of years old. I have had no major work done to it, and basically, I'm planning on keeping it til something major breaks down. Then I will replace it with another Escape! I truly love driving this car - it hugs the road and is just so fun to drive."
"Overall very nice vehicle. Excellent on snowy roads. Has been very reliable. Like most everything about this SUV. The only negatives would be the cheap plastic seats and you do not get a very comfortable ride. But, I do not expect a great ride out of any suv."
