Great first car! Loved it a lot!

It exceeded all of my needs. I loved everything about it from the style to the comfortability. 10/10 would recommend to any driver that wants a reliable car.


Most reliable car I've owned

If you're looking for a very good for a low price, you found the right one that can help you to save money on gas and you will have a break with the repair shop for a while if you keep it maintained(oil change, tune up on time).


My favorite hybrid

I bought this car slightly used, and I have kept up the maintenance diligently, so this car has been a favorite of mine since the test drive back in 2010. The mileage is wonderful for a small SUV - it's better in the summer vs. winter - and it's roomy enough for me and my husband. My only sad (re)view is that Ford has stopped making Escape Hybrids. I will look into the EcoSport Hybrid in several years when mine finally decides to go to the car graveyard.


Very good SUV I have ever owed...

This car has given me a lot of miles per gallon. It roomy, a lot of space. The driving is easy and smooth.


First Hybrid, I love it so far.

I bought this vehicle originally because it was highly recommended to be pulled behind a RV. Which the reviews were correct. It was very simple to set up for being towed which is a huge advantage compared to other vehicles. In the intern, I am very impressed with its gas mileage and reliability. It has 157,000 miles on it and drives and sounds new yet.


First car!

Very excited as our sons first car. We went to a few places and no other place was as willing to help meet our needs. The car fits all of our expectations and then some, could not be more happy.


Pretty decent hybrid SUV 4wd

Pretty great car. Drove very smoothly and had pretty spacious trunk storage. Everything seemed pretty reliable except the transfer case which I had to replace two times ($$$). The electric hybrid part only goes full electric when under 25mph, and then assists with gas acceleration above 25mph, so on highway you get about 33mpg, then in the city you can drive pretty far on all-electric so you get a lot more mpgs. Over all I feel like it?s a great car as far as mpgs for the city (under 25mpg) but on the highway it?s a little above average. Mpgs aside, this car is pretty nice.


One of the most reliable cars that I own

This Suv runs very smooth. It is also very very quiet Suv . This Suv gets good gas mileage . I don't think you would be disappointed .


191,000 and drives like new!

I bought my front-wheel-drive 2007 escape in 2009 when it had 74,000 miles on it. I have driven it nearly 120,000 miles since then while carrying a heavy duty 28', 24' and 12' ladders on a custom roof rack to support the weight. Besides tires and oil changes I had a $700.00 cooling pump go bad at 80k miles(defective part for 2006-7 models). At 180k I had the front drive axles replaced for $350. This car has run perfectly otherwise. I average 26mpg at 65mph and it drops to 23 at 70mph. I've driven fro Dallas to Houston and at 55-57mph got 36mpg. Nowhere will you find such value in a SUV. The hybrid batteries are basically indestructible unless you get rear-ended. New York City Escape taxis average over 300k before being auctioned! Need I say more. I'm buying a second one with 4wd for a back up vehicle in case of an accident. Love this car. Oh yea, it's got a standard electrical outlet for laptops or small electronics !!!!


my first car

This is my first car -- though I have driven many, many others over the years. I was looking for an SUV-style for the height-clearance, a hybrid for better gas mileage, and a newer model in hopes of less necessary repairs. (Wishful thinking sometimes, I know!) This met all those requirements and was being offered for a good price, so I did a test drive and decided to get it. The on-ramp pick-up isn't amazing, but it's not as bad as I've driven before. The handling is sound and secure, even in windy conditions. The turning radius is good, which surprised me. I've averaged 31-32 MPG, but it could definitely be better if your daily commute is over 15+ miles (mine is less, as are most of my errand trips). The interior noise is definitely present, but it's not a concern for me. The speakers, especially in the rear, are better than most. Fortunately, the previous owner maintained it, so even though the mileage is rather high, it passed through my Car-X guy with praise. So far, I've been really pleased.
