"Love it. This is the Hybrid version and I am the second owner. Had no problems with it except for a recall issue that was fixed/paid for by Ford. Never let me down otherwise. Not to expensive parts. Only had usual maintenance and one tire change, so far. It has a rather "sporty" feel, so not really comfy, but I like that fine. Mine came with navigator (from 2005, so no traffic alerts, and missing new roads) and other extras, which make up for its age. It does not have much HP, so not a swift car, but for its size, weight, age good and reliable, which counts for much. Good exterior, too, holds up nicely.If they made these in 2016 I would buy it again."

"I bought this car used and have loved it ever since. It is not a luxury model but it is easy to drive, reliable, affordable all the way around. Its great in the snow and not bad on gas. One thing I have had issues with now that it is older is the front end wheels. I always seem to be replacing tire rod ends, wheel barings, etc."

"I bought my Escape brand new in 2003. I've had it for 13 yrs now and have been pretty happy with it. I love the "on- demand" 4x4... It's been excellent in the snow. We've had a few things go wrong with it in the last 3-4 yrs. It eats alternators every 2 yrs it seems. I've had to put 2 new sets of brakes on it, new tires, and the regular maintenance. I plan to keep it for a bit longer as long as it stays running."

"My opinion of this vehicle is just terrible. I bought mine at 113,000 miles. 4 weeks after purchasing it the transmission went out, 2 weeks after I got it back, the water pump and fuel pump went out also. This car rides rough like an off road jeep or something. Not Dependable at all!!!! And would not recommend to my enemies."

Pros: "Lots of room for my family."

"I bought it 2 years ago with 179000 miles and use it to go everywhere as my main transportation. Have only had to replace ball joints and CV axles that were original parts just a couple of months ago and #5 spark plug coil pack which I replaced myself. No major repairs and has never broken down on me. It is well worth the 3K I paid for it!"
