We love the look, the price and the comfort. Also the Escape handles like a car which is great. It feels like a car but is an SUV. We've only had the vehicle for a couple of months but we would buy another if given the choice. I see Ford Escapes everywhere and now I know why. We got the Escape mainly because of three kids and the need for room. It wasn't meant to be a "Main" vehicle because that was our Toyota Camry. My wife has not driven the Camry for as long as we've had the Ford. She says the SUV is adictive.
Super Suv not to big not to small

Like the story of the three bears...It's just right. Easy to get into without having to climb up or fall out. Plenty of windows and I just love the sunroof in it. The ride is suprisingly smooth for a SUV
I love this car!

This car turned out to be exactly what I wished for. It handles just like a car, but has more room for the family and cargo. Mileage was a little lower than I expected, but has improved as car has been driven more. It gets me about 20 mpg right now. You don't have the same cargo capability as a large truck or SUV, but this will only matter if you are hauling construction supplies. It is more than ample room for anything else you might want to haul.
Controls are easy to understand, and interior is very comfortable. You have a feeling of safety when you are riding in it. I have the V6, and it takes a little getting used to. It is VERY responsive and will lunge out on you the first few times you hit the accelerator until you get the hang of it. Its nice to know that for a larger vehicle, it has the ability to get up and go if you need it.
