2014 Ford EscapeDexter Thomas - San Bernardino, CA01/06/2017
The mileage is great for the size of the vehicle. It's comfortable for front and rear passengers. Cargo space is good, but on the narrow side. My golf clubs have to go in the long way or at an angle. The Microsoft sound system works great once you figure it out. It's quick for an economy vehicle. The "Eco-boost" lets you get on the freeway without worry.
Everything I hoped for and more!

It combines fun driving and latest technology with the practical aspects of the old family station wagon, if and when you need to fold down the rear seats. I traded a sedan and a pickup truck on this vehicle, and feel that I combined the best aspects of both in the process.
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.
