The 2013 Ford Escape has a lot of safety features and is a good size vehicle for my daughter. I'm 6' 230 and I feel a little cramped in the vehicle. But overall this is a good reliable vehicle to this point. Had car for 2 weeks before the issues started. Carmax "fixed" the problem 5 separate times only to keep having the same issues. They offered to buy it back after 2 months for 4k less than what I had just paid them. I should have check this car out more I have owned this car for about 4 months, its been in the shop twice for a total of 5 weeks I am enjoying my 2013 Ford Escape! It is a nice feeling to have a new(er) car. The only thing I am not too happy with is ... My sales person told me the tires are new but the two front are NOT new. Will be having to spend more money now soon to purchares two new tires. Vehicle feels smaller than a sedan in terms of arm and leg space. Owned the car for less than 4 months and I already need to replace the starter. Wonderful surprise! The price was affordable, the SEL ecoboost package had everything that I wanted. I have never owned a Ford before, but The Escape had all the criteria that I required in my budget. It is the best car I have had in a few years
