I’ve leased my 2017 Escape for two years now. The only problems I had with it were a remote key fob that didn’t work. At the two and a half year mark at 14,000 miles the check engine light comes on. Code reading shows a bad coil in the no. One cylinder. Dealer fixed it. Four days later light on again this time it’s the number 4 cylinder. Good no more problems
i like the car but the eco engine is woefully underpowered. Takes Forever to get it going. Space is good and I wish I had gotten the sync 3 entertainment system but sync is ok
All in all it’s nit bad but to make it better you have go go up in trim and of course price
I will not purchase or lease it again.
This is the third Ford Escape I have owned. I have stepped up in model each time. This is a Titanium. I am loving all of the ' bells and whistles' it has. It has plenty of leg room front and back; and the cargo space is fabulous. I am loving the moon roof and heated seats, too, as well as the mpg.
Fit my price range, does everything I really need a car for, will be able to tow a trailer for fishing and duck hunting and was thinking I need a truck, but with this car there is enough room to get the boat, decoys, and gear to the river bottom and back.
I didn't ultimately end up buying through Cornhusker, but their Sales staff was very quick to respond and very professional and helpful. I will try them again for my next purchase.

The Car meets most of my needs and drives good it’s decently roomie I get good mileage I feel safe in my car specially because I live somewhere where we get a lot of snow overall my car is just comfortable and reliable its everything that I want in a car and more ! This is my second escape and I’m hooked for life on this model !
We were having brake issues on our 2011 Ford Edge and needed the oil changed and tires rotated. They did the "works" oil change service which includes rotating the tires, fixed the braking issue (which to my surprise was covered by warranty), and washed the car. Great facility, people and service. I highly recommend.
So far 2017 Ford Escape is Reliable

Found out if we turn the traction control off we get 33 mpg. The vehicle rides nice. Not as much room as our Windstar had, but still pretty nice and seats 4 comfortable and can seat 5. Got the aspirated engine as wanting nothing to do with the turbo. Have not had that long, bought used with around 18K miles, but so far pleased with the vehicle. Nothing fancy, the S model, but seems to be decent transportation.
Called the dealership on a Saturday. Talked to Matt. Told him what we wanted. He called back shortly saying he found the vehicle with all the options we asked him to find. Basically did everything over the phone (except sign the papers) which worked out very smooth. If you are in the market for a new or used ford Gene Steffy in Columbus is the place and Matt Becker is the man!
Remarkably enjoyable car for the size and price

This car handles well and is quiet and comfortable. It is a great car for around town and weekend trips. The fuel economy and power are well balanced while the utility works for our needs.
The crew changing oil on the morning of June 2nd were courteous, speedy and did a solid job of performing their responsibilities. They informed me of deficiencies with other checkpoints beyond changing the oil. Filter, tire and lights.
Owned Many cars and this is the best.

I recently bought my first Escape as a pre-owned vehicle. I must say this is the is a fun SUV to drive. I have owned over 40 cars in my lifetime and I love this one. If I had to complain about something it's that the seats leave something to be desired in the comfort area.
There was a pickup on there lot I was interested in and was told by a friend to talk with Matt Becker, Matt made the the whole go smoothly, Answered any questions I had took me for a ride and let me take it for a ride and we made a deal the whole thing was effortless. Anyone involved in my purchase was kind and cheerful and helpful. Thanks to All!
Great Vehicle for the Price

I am so blessed coming from having no heat to this amazing vehicle is well worth the wait. The axle on my Jeep was separating as I was driving to the Dealership. God blessed me to get there safe. I did not have to drive the Jeep back home.
Low stress, friendly environment. The people are friendly and not pushy. You can look and ask questions at your own pace.
This vehicle is very easy to drive and comfortable

I was very pleased with the low miles and the price I was able to get it for. I was impressed with the automatic rear hatch. I teach CPR and this makes it so easy to get my equipment in and out. Upgrading to the features I have on the dash now is awesome.
Perfect for my requirements. Plan to keep a long time. Great on road trips and around town. Have the 2L ecoboost, get ~ 29 mpg hwy, 22 city. Now have 105,000 miles, runs like new. Only 'repair' was to replace the vacuum pump (brakes). The battery is a PITA to replace.
I really like the way this SUV drives. Handles more like a car, very responsive. I got the 2.0L engine and AWD. It is the Titanium so it has heated leather seats and I love them. Very comfortable. I have to merge on the Interstate with a very short merge lane and everybody it typically doing 75+MPH. This SUV really goes when you press on the gas paddle and I love that. The visibility is excellent and I love to sit "tall" so I have my seat about as high as you can get it. The brakes are excellent and saved me from a 15 car pile up on the Interstate just last week. I also love all the cargo room. I love to "go antiquing" and with the rear seats folding completely flat there is quite a bit of cargo room. Really happy with my purchase.
