We have had our Escape for about 2 months now and I absolutely love it. I got the leather seats and the power moon roof and 6 cd changer that I have always wanted but gave up having 4 wheel drive to keep it affordable for me. It drives beautifully and has been averaging 20.4 mpg with about 50/50 city vs hwy driving. The sound is awesome! I dont regret this purchase one bit!

I am very happy with my new used 2008 Ford Escape 6 cylinder auto. The vehicle drives and handles so smoothly. The car is great in stop and go highway traffic, I can stop on a dime. I have plenty of head and leg room. The dash board instruments are accessable by a light touch. The rear storage area is quite roomy especially when I put down the rear seats. I miss the compass and outside temperature. The seats are a little on the hard side but I am not uncomfortale after a long drive. This is a wonderful, sporty, small SUV. I would recommend this car to anyone.

Excelent Deal

Bought this used with 50K miles on it. Drives great. Very comfortable seats and very decent gas mileage. Better than a large SUV for gas but better than a car if you need to carry things. Very smooth on the highway and the sound system is definite quality. It came with Sirius capabilities. Wish it had the Sync. MY 2008 Focus does. Unfortunately I have to give it to my wife until finances get better but i am hoping to get it back in a year or so.

Reliable and cheap to run

by from Fairbanks Alaska on September 16, 2012

I bought this car 2nd hand, and it was my 1st 2nd hand car in my life. But im not sorry one day. It is a 4 cyl and is great on fuel economy, and it is big enough for the 2 of us. Thank you Ford.

Very Nice

by from Laurel,MD on September 11, 2010

Solid feel, smooth engine, hanldes well. There is a bit of road noise when windows are down, otherwise fine. Wish I'd gone for the softer seats otherwise comfortable and runs good.

The best car i've ever owned!

by from Baltimore, MD on October 18, 2010

I love my escape,and so does everyone who gets in. Most passengers are surprised it's a ford. My teenager wanted to keep it for herself. It's great on gas. It handles great and is fun to drive.

2008 Escape - great ride

by from Silver Spring, MD on December 12, 2011

One of the best vehicles I have ever owned. Besides looking great, it rides very nicely. I would certainly buy another.

My 2008 Escape gets great gas mileage and is very fuel efficient, especially if I take it easy on the gas pedal. I typically get 27 to 28 MPG on the highway and sometimes close to 30 during warmer months. This is a very good car for the money. I like it so much that I bought my daught a 2002 Escape and it runs well and also gets good gas mileage.
