Do not purchase a Ford without looking at reviews

I have a 2019, it is 2022 and my transmission has blown along with the turbine, seal, turbo. I still have 3 years on my note and the car is no longer driveable. So disappointed in Ford to have made such a bad car. My family is a Ford family but after this experience, we will take our purchases elsewhere. 30 years of Ford purchasers, now no longer trust a ford.



Purchased new in late 2019, was one of the last Escapes on the lot. I wish I had never signed the papers. The vehicle is just very mediocre, the fuel performance is no where near as good as it should be. Prior to this vehicle I owned a full size pick up (with a 5.4L v8) and the fuel performance is only slightly better, during the winter with the heater (more on that below) running your fuel economy will suffer massively. The interior of the vehicle for how spacious it is feels cramped. I'm a 6' 200lbs male and I don't feel like I fit in the drivers seat, they could be a few inches wider considering the gaps between the doors and center console. The android/apple auto/carplay hardly works, randomly disconnects, you need to use the cable that came with your phone or it wont work at all, no aftermarket phone chargers!! I own the SEL model with the full retractable moon roof which was a feature I loved when I was shopping but having lived with it for a few years it's useless. The moon roof is too far back over the front passengers, you need to crank you neck all the way back to see anything. Also not great for Canadian winters, for those really truly cold starts in those frozen mornings. You can feel the stiff components in the vehicle especially when steering. The first time it happened I thought my power steering pump had failed it was that stiff. Also the front window defogger takes forever to thaw out the windshield but when its going you'll be so warm inside you need to crack a window at -40 and figure out that temperature balance. Freezing rain is a nightmare in this vehicle. My dealer thankfully installed a block heater which gets a lot of use late Dec - late Feb. My least favourite thing about the vehicle is how often it's dinging or beeping or honking at me. Got a dash message? dinging at you even if you cancel it out. Automatic cruise control sensor frozen over or dirty? well it's dinging at you. Forget to turn off the car and you hop out, even for a second, the car will loudly honk twice at you. You also can permanently turn off the auto stop/start, you need to do it every time you turn on the vehicle. The Escape is a joyless point a to point b vehicle for those who don't care what their vehicle is giving them. The design choices by Ford on this vehicle were done for those who just want to mindlessly drive to their destination and want nothing more out of a vehicle, and I would happily recommend the vehicle to anyone like that. But if you want something that's well thought out, smart design choices and has any kind of spunk to it you're looking at the wrong vehicle. I am very jealous of my friends Honda CRV. The all-wheel drive system in the Escape is very good.


Serviceable car

Looking for good gas mileage and comfort. Also, looking for closer place to get service which Raabe provided. The reliability of the vehicle was also a consideration.


Love my escape!

Love this vehicle- it is great for everything I do Wish it had hested steering wheel But its great gor taking the dogs and kids out!


Good daily driver

This Escape has served me well for 52000 miles in the two years that I have owned it. It gets reasonable gas mileage (28 mpg around town) and 31 on the highway. The EcoBoost turbo gives it enough kick when I pull out to pass and there is plenty of seating and cargo space.


Very clean car

I'm very satisfied with the comfort and performance of this car. I feel my road trips will be a pleasant experience driving this car.. I would recommend this car to my friends..


Hi there! 2019 Escape owner from UAE!

Bought an Escape SEL with the 2.0 Ecoboost and AWD for my wife in March 2020. Out accelerates a lot of "big" cars on the road and handles well for its size and the stock rims and tyres that it comes with. Interior is comfortable but he front footwells are a bit cramped as the pedals are placed too closely to each other. Other than that the SYNC 3 system is a joy to use after the recent upgrade and stock speakers do a good job as well. Rear seats and boot space are reasonable for a compact vehicle such as this. I feed it only 98 Octane which hopefuly makes it last longer. Overall a cute little trucklet with big attitude thanks to a 240HP engine!


Beautiful vehicle

Style and comfort make this Escape one of the best vehicles I have ever purchased. Very clean inside, features are perfect and easy to navigate.


Perfect vehicle for me: a 77 years old female.

Ease of handling, well planned interior, great acceleration and very comfortable are great pluses for me! I drive an average of 50 miles a month but has maintained its reliability through this year's COVID challenges. 😷😷


Snazzy car!

Great car. So many, many useful features. Still learning what all the gadgets are. Attractive ride! Will post more when I know more. Only had for four days.
