"Owned this vehicle for 8 years abs system only problem ever had, warranty fix for that, oil changes and filters only thing ever, Great handling, and convenient to load packages in, 4 people ride comfortably, maybe 1 or 2 children, seats are not couch quality, but, not many small vehicles ride great, I feel good product for money spent"

"If my husband I were not expecting a 3rd child I would not consider getting rid of my Escape. I bought it used in 2010 and have had no major problems outside of normal wear and tear. I have never been stuck in the snow, it starts in the cold winters (-42 was our low this year) and the gas mileage is respectable. It does everything from haul kids to road trips across several Midwestern states. I am going to buy another Ford...just a bigger one!"

"Three things I have been unhappy with. The driver's seat belt cuts into my neck, there's no sync technology, and the instrument panel does not have an outside temperature reading. Otherwise, I love this car. I't's only had minor repairs in the nine years I've owned it."

"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."
