Ford Escape: great choice for college student.

I have owned my Ford Escape for the past 6 years. I bought it while I was in college and have used it through graduate school and since I have entered the professional world. The Escape is a great vehicle for someone who moves frequently. It offers a good amount of space to pack belongings into, while also offering a vehicle that is not as hard on gas as larger SUV’s. My Escape has approximately 125, 000 miles on it and still runs great. I make sure to stay up on normal maintenance and have only had to change the battery once in the 6 years I have owned it.

2001 Ford Escape with transmission issues.

Ford Escape is a mid sized SUV with great room for storage and passengers, comes with a leather interior and sunroof that allows for plenty of sunlight. The vehicle is four wheel drive with decent gas mileage and smooth driving. However, this make and model commonly has issues with the transmission going out. I have had to replace two transmissions in this type of vehicle and it becomes a hassle of replacing this part. However, I have chosen to stick with this brand because they are reliable in getting me where I need to go.

I am the primary driver. The car looks It's age but it has a sense of charm.

I have an older vehicle. It has been a reliable car. I like the fact that it can show wear and tear and not give me stress that a newer vehicle would. The cons would be the maintenance costs that come up from time to time. I live in a hot climate and do not have a/c. Gets a little warm on the car in days when it is over 100. I don't have cruise control and would not trust the car on long trips. Overall it has been a reliable vehicle and will continue to drive it until i cannot
