Adding this car to our household has allowed to have more flexibility with our traveling and packing. We have a child plus a dog so they take up the backseat. The Escape gives us more cargo room in case we need to pack extra bags or guitars. Also, I love the Bluetooth/sync technology.
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.
Ok car at ok price.

Too much stuff on it that's hard to figure out. The radio system and phone system instructions aren't written for the average person. The car rides good. The battery and certain areas of the engine are very hard to access. Even the dipstick comes out crooked because of poor access. It gets ok gas mileage. The controls are hard to figure out and operate.
