The car is roomy, handles great, good gas mileage, is comfortable to ride in and drive, mechanically sound, would be great for a family, and is great for road trips. Plenty of storage space, back seats are roomy and comfortable. Probably the best car purchase I have ever made.
Great Car! Great for varying heigths
2014 Ford EscapeElizabeth Taylor - Royal Palm Beach, FL02/25/2016
My husband and I purchased this vehicle because it fits me at 5'1" and my husband at 6'7". He still has clearance from the ceiling of the vehicle and leg room. The vehicle is comfortable, fun to drive, and quick when needed. I love the touchscreen and technology that the vehicle offers. I would recommend upgrading to a package that includes the touchscreen system for the interface.
Ok small SUV for the money - ok value
2012 Ford EscapeKevin - Murfreesboro, TN04/16/2015
Lackluster acceleration, moderate-to-poor gas mileage, poor transmission, and a few too many rattles in the passenger compartment. My mileage average over the last year has at best hit 24mpg even though it is rated 24-28mpg. I've never - EVER - hit 28mpg even on a long term flat highway drive to DC and back to Nashville.
have also had problems with transmission since nearly day-one. Initially started as a recall, but even after having that fixed the jerkiness of the ride is sometimes uncomfortable.
