Pros: "Good looking, handling, high feature content"
Cons: "Poor MPG for 2.4 L, priced close to bigger SUVs"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"I have '13 Titanium, fully loaded. Besides few glitches with navigation, some ocasional rattles, intermitten function of hands-free tail gate operation it is a very nice vehicle. Small gas tank requires good planning for long trips. 20.2 MPG (computer readings) is not that great at all. But four people will be comfortable for 3-4 hours, enough space for luggage, good stereo, etc."
"I've had my ford escape for 9 months and i cannot think of a better car in this segment. i wanted a car that was as youthful as i and this was the one. this is far beyond my expectations and i recommend it to everyone i know that's looking for a new car."
"Tilt wheel clunky to operate
glove compartment stupid, open door and everything falls out
center console too deep to be convenient
fog lights must just be there to pretty as they really don't give you any visibility
I might be nitpicking but you ask
mechanically no problems
seems like too many recalls though
other than that great vehicle no problem
fun to drive and boy does it have pep
will get another, just hope not so many re calls on the next one"
"I had a 2004 Escape and I traded for a 2013 four months ago. I love it. It's fun to drive with the ecoboost and I kayak so I love the roof rack. It get's much better gas millage than the 2004. The look of it has grown on me. I didn't like it a first, but now I do. It goes through the snow like a champ! I had no problems all winter. I wish my SEL model had navigation."
"Owned it for 6 weeks now to replace my 2007 XLT Escape..Boy what a difference.
Better Power..Great handling..Average 27.8 MPG
Looked at the Titanium but didn't see a use for the 4 wheel drive and Moon Roof..So went with the 2.0L SEL.
Glad to have made the purchase..took it the first weekend on a 2,000 mile road trip..averaged 29.6 MPG on the trip.
Only item I dislike is the hump in front of the seats..I'm 5' 10" and when you pull your foot back it gets in the way...otherwise really happy with the vehicle."
