great car

i like my ford majorly for two things, ground clearance and ability to move on every road terrain . and this is in comparison with other cars.


reliable vehicle

l bought this vehicle used good price and has been a reliable vehicle. Biggest problem with the ford escape is the back wheel wells rust out prematurely. mainly because of the plastic liner that allows salt and mosture to get in and trapped. l would definitely buy another one. comfortable ride


Air bags not reliable

Was at stop light when light turned green car ahead went then died just as I started go ended up running into back of car not even going 15 miles per hour both passengers and driver air bags deployed in car . No front end damage to car only hit front bumper of car yet both air bags deployed. Officer said should not have deployed.


Great First car

I got the V6 XLT in blue for a great deal at an auction. It had 153,000 miles and it now has about 162,000. So far it’s been great, and although it isn’t a speed demon, I love how it looks and it drives adequately for my needs. Fuel economy isn’t the greatest and I get about 260 miles to the tank. I hooked up a Sony head unit and the sound system is great with the built in sub, overall a great compact SUV.



Great suv. Spacious, reliable. Sporty. Off road vehicle. Great for outdoors and city driving. It has good handling capabilities also. It's not too small and not too big, spacious when needed and comfort with style.



Great weekender car with a roaring engine. Different from what I’m used to in a smaller vehicle, but the functionality of the car is superb!


It is a great car until about 100000 miles

This cat has been great until the transmission went out at 100000 miles the Ford motor company don't want to help in anyway it should of lasted the life of the car that's the only problem with it it cast about 3000 to 5000 to fix


Love This Vehicle!

I really hate having to sell this truck, one of my best investments, only selling because of relocating. would recommend this vehicle to any friends or family. Needs a little TLC not much though...


Best value for my money ever

Great little suv....very reliable and great on gas......I’m sure the 4 wheel drive will also be great if it ever snows again......I would recommend this type of vehicle to anyone


I would probably enjoy it if it didn’t have so man

I would be happy with it if it didn’t have so many problems do to someone else’s negligence. It has plenty of leg room and I love the color
