One of America's most reliable cars.
The 2007 Ford Escape is the most reliable car I have ever owned. The car rides with ease on highways, country roads, etc. It is a bit larger and higher up than most vehicles which is very convenient for driving, switching lanes, looking into your blind spots, etc. The gas mileage leaves more to be desired but a typical tank of gas is about $50. For being 11 years old it runs as well as newer cars my household owns. The wheels and axles are a bit slippery when conditions are wet/snowy, so I would be a bit cautious about purchasing if you live in an area that has a lot of precipitation. It is equipped with your standard ac, radio, and can use a radio converter to stream music from your device. The trunk has a lot of space which is convenient for travel. My car has about 85, 000 miles and I have only had to take it for repairs about once besides regular inspection.
