I own this car - My approximate mileage is 35,000
Pros: "Fun to drive with plenty of power. Sound system."
Cons: "Rear headrest removal."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I was very surprised by the pick up and power this 3.0 6 cylinder has.
Very smooth shifting 6 speed automatic transmission.
Cabin is very roomy despite it's outward appearance.
Plenty of leg room front and rear.
Audio system sounds superb. SYNC, USB connection for iPod and bluetooth for phone work great with buttons on the steering wheel. Voice command is very handy.
Easy to maneuver and park.
Automatic headlights is a plus, as is the keyless entry and driver's door keypad (all cars should have this feature!)
I like the computer information on MPG and oil change info.
I got 24 MPG on combination highway/city rush hour traffic. Almost 10 more MPG than my previous car, a 1999 Explorer.
On the negative side, having to remove the rear passenger headrests to fold the back completely flat seems to be an after thought."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 30,000
Pros: "Reliaility and performance towing very good"
Cons: "climate controls hard to see and use"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"Wife likes size for parking and interior space for hauling groceries and other items. I regularly tow a trailer with 800 to 1200 lb load from KS to TN & WY. Handles load well. Functionality of navigation system is good. Disappointed with $200 cost to update navigation. Wish I had purchased after market navigation. Gas mileage good for loads I haul. Engine/transmission matched together very well. Engine has good torque rise. Have had no problems with vehicle. I service vehicle per owners manual recommendations. Wear trifocals and climate controls difficult to see and find when driving. Like SYNC function with cell phone. MPG from 29.5 highway with no cargo to low of 19.5 loaded & towing trailer. Overall MPG since purchasing vehicle is 23.5"

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 1,000
Pros: "all so far"
My wife calls it Darth Vader
"After driving my 1999 Mustang for 13 years I shopped around for a small SUV. Got a great deal on a 2012 fully loaded Escape XLT. I got the V6 engine (240 hp)so it has plenty of take off and passing power. The sync system works great with my phone and USB drive with MP3'S. The ride is smooth and it looks great inside & out.I love the Sports Package with the Black grill & wheels. Most of my driving so far has been in town & I have averaged 20 MPG. I hope it last as my Mustang has - 13 years 102000 miles and counting."
