2013 Ford EscapeDan Butler - Mesquite, TX10/14/2016
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.
Good SUV, Could Be Great
2014 Ford EscapeMark Bush - Santa Ana, CA08/08/2016
Reliability, decent mileage, lots of technology, nice leather seats (easy to clean), love the seat and mirror position memory (my wife has her settings and I have mine), Bluetooth connectivity is automatic and very clear, rear view camera has very wide angle lens to see everything behind you, Sport mode holds gears longer and shifts more quickly, etc., etc., etc. Only "negative" is that the 1.6L Ecoboost engine is a little under-powered for a vehicle of this weight but it does OK.
This car saved my life!
2013 Ford EscapeDonna H - Morehead, KY04/10/2017
I purchased a 2013 Ford Escape SEL at the end of December 2016. I spend a lot of time in my car due to my work and my 2013 Elantra was just not cutting it. I have never been so glad to have made a purchase in my life.
I had a front end collision at 55mph, which totaled out my Escape. The accident was bad. It could have easily taken my life. However, thanks to the wonderful safety features of the Ford Escape I was driving, I walked away whole, albeit it bruised, with nary a scratch. The 911 assist did it's job even with very little cell signal. I came home to my family thanks to Ford. We've already picked out the replacement and yes, it is another Escape.
