I purchased my Ford Escape the end of May, 2012. Since that time I have been extremely satisfied. My great experience began with CarMax and the professional way I was treated. I do not have great credit and I was very surprised when I was able to obtain credit. My salesman was very professional and did not promise anything he could not deliver. This is my first dealing with Carmax but will not be my last.
Since then I have been loving driving my Escape. It gets great gas milage and it handles great. It is a 4 cylinder so it does not have that quick pick up but I knew that when I bought the Escape and did not expect it. I bought it for the price, it's solid reputation and it's looks. I am glad every day I get into my little Escape that it's mine. Thanks again Carmax.

Although I have the Escape merely a month, I like it's size - a not too big SUV. It has sufficient bells and whistles for me although I must concede I'd prefer having a GPS system. This is my first experience with Sirius radio and I'm loving it. The car is a 6-cylinder although I don't think it has as much power as my old car, the '98 Explorer but maybe I'm just missing the car. I love having 4 doors and there is sufficient room in the rear. The leather seats are great as is the sound system. The fact that I can charge my iPhone without using a lighter system is amazing as well. I don't get a many miles to the gall as I expected. So far it appears to be around 20 mpg. That's okay but not mind-blowing. It is certainly better than my old '98 Ford. The console between the front seats is very comfortable and the variety of seat positions the driver's seat provides is great: comfortable ride in that regard. Finally, the extra section of rear view mirror which enables the driver to see very far back and reveals the 'blind spot' has been very advantageous.

The road and engine noise is loud. It is a six speed and should only be 5....it bogs down going into 3rd gear....makes you wonder if it will get up to speed.
