Fun to Drive!

I downsized from a very large SUV to this Escape XLT. I am still getting used to it, but I enjoy driving it a lot. I got the V6 so there is plenty of power for merging onto the highway, I like that it has a more square SUV look rather than the car look of some of the crossovers. It's very roomy inside, so I can still fill up the cargo area with groceries or coolers for traveling. I do find the seats a bit harder than the larger SUV I had and there is a bit more noise in the cabin area from the engine, but those would by my only complaints so far. I love the sync function for hands-free talking on the phone. The power adjustable seats and blind spot mirrors make it a breeze to drive comfortably.


  • Cargo Space: Very roomy
  • Technology and Entertainment: Love the sync feature
  • Ride and Handling: Easy to drive & park


  • Cabin Noise: Does have some cabin noise
  • Seat Comfort: A tab hard, but very easy to adjust on the plus side

Better than I expected

It was a great deal for the money. I wanted to get a used car with low miles and new car max would have one in excellent condition. I wanted the Ford toys and this had a sun roof too. I did not love it as I drove off with it, but it really has grown on has great power and this demands great responsibility as you can really punch it and not realize how fast you are going until you are passing everyone. Was always a Hyundai Sante Fe owner, but this changed my mind.......


  • Power: Wow.....really punches especially when I need it
  • Seat Comfort: Love the power seats and ease to adjust while driving
  • Visibility: Also better than I expected


  • Styling: The black interior makes it really hot in florida, but the A/C does help in the front. Which it had vents in the back
  • Value: I got a great deal on this car!!!
  • Interior Space: Easily fits the family

I don't think it was a great purchase for the money spent

city gas mileage was supposed be about 22 to 24 miles per gallon. Highway was supposed to be about 28. I am getting around 17 miles per gallon city and around 25 miles per gallon highway. The back trunk and overhead moon roof leak. It runs rough. When driving you can hear the air leaks. Very noisy.


  • Seat Comfort: Wife is very comfortable in the seats
  • Seat Comfort: Very comfortable seats
  • Visibility: Good visibility with the high SUV


  • Fuel Economy: Very poor fuel economy
  • Cabin Noise: A noisy drive
