Excellent Gas Milage and low maintenance SUV

I've enjoyed driving a hybrid since 2007 and this one is the best. 32 to 35 MPG with all the passenger and cargo space for coaching soccer or planting Grandma's garden.

4.0

reliable

a nice suv to handle most every day needs. not too big and not to small. seats do need more of a cushion. mileage good for a suv

4.4

A spacious and reliable family vehicle

We loved the space for the kids in this vehicle and cargo area was large enough for going out of town and to the beach for all bags and toys! Felt very safe with airbags and being a bit higher up. Great radio system with accessibility to sync technology for hands free and offered aux and USB ports for phones and other items

5.0

Great car for what its worth

i had previously owned a 2000 jeep cherokee and what an upgrade! it rides very smooth, has lots of premium features which i had never had before, but it isn't too many that they will overwhelm you. overall, this car is fantastic!

4.5

Test drive went well

We are purchasing this vehicle it is very roomy in great condition. And overall what we were really looking for in an suv. If I could have changed anything about it is the color. Not a huge fan of Red but it was the only one in our range.

4.9

Great Value

65,000 miles for under 9,000. Low payments, digital automatic everything. Built in Bluetooth. Great car, great price.

4.3

Good Car

My escape has served its purpose that i needed it for. Got decent fuel mileage, enough room for me and my daughter, and luggage. However i didn't like the fact that you had to remove the entire front end of the car to replace a head light bulb (Front bumper, Center Grille section, and then the headlight itself!). Loved the Sync System and remote start that it came with

3.9

Pleasantly surprised

I initially wanted a more crossover SUV with the curved back end, but I have surprisingly grown to love this SUV. We bought this car used, with the full package, BT, Sync voice command, Sirius radio, Sunroof, roof rack, black grill, and black rims. I have been very impressed with the Sync voice command system it's so easy to use and can't imagine now not having a car with this feature. I also love the remote pad key-less entry, for someone who as ever locked their keys in the car, (I've done it more times then I'll admit) this is a huge life saver and money saver! This car has also been very reliable, we've only had to replace a sensor and fix an oil leak but overall has driven reliably. It doesn't get great city gas mileage, usually only about 18 miles per gallon. I gave it 3 stars on comfort because the back is not very roomy, I have 3 kids, 1 still in a car seat, and they have started to complain about space. Overall I have been presently surprised with how much I have liked this car, the only reason I am looking to replace it, is because I need a little more space.

4.6

Powerful, nice to see and though

I drive it at Curacao where there appear to be many off-roads with think holes in it: no problem to take these roads full power with bumps and all. Hardly feel them. Great. Car never let me down and only requires routine servicing

4.4

Comfortable and reliable

I was pleasently pleased with this vehicle. For an SUV, gas mileage was decent, and drives well. I'm used to just having a small car do this was a nice trade in. If wanting it for power, it could use more, but was fine for me.
