My Ford Escape is "just my size" & a perfect combo of & practicality!

I particularly love driving what I refer to as a "lady's sized" SUV. I have always driven sedans. In my years of driving, I had driven a full size SUV belonging to a friend a few times. I was never comfortable driving such a "large" vehicle as I was accustomed to a sedan. However, I longed for the extra space that an SUV provides. The Ford Escape is perfect for a driver such as myself. It is more compact than a "full sized SUV" while providing the extra space that a traditional sedan does not offer. I find it extremely easy and comfortable to drive as the Ford Escape is a "compact SUV". Unlike larger vehicles in the SUV/truck class, I never feel as though I am navigating the roads in a position that is higher from the ground than I am comfortable with. It was a very easy transition to the Ford Escape SUV from my Toyota Camry sedan! I really love the sporty look of this vehicle! I fell in love with it the moment that I saw it. I love my sunroof on a pretty day! I really love the fact that I can "remove" the back seats for extra space when I need to transport large items. There really is not anything that I do not like about my Ford Escape. I would definitely purchase another one in the future and I highly recommend this SUV for anyone but especially ladies and young/beginning drivers.

Quick Review of 2009 Ford Escape Features

I thoroughly enjoy my Escape. I believe that it is good on gas mileage, is very easy to drive and handle, and has good space. All the windows are automatic and still work great even 10 years later. There also is a sunroof which is wonderful for long road trips! When I first got the car, it came with an automatic start, and key fob which has proven to be VERY handy in the winter. The seats in the back to come out so that you have more storage in the back which is nice. The only complaint about the seats coming out is that there is no place to store the seats you take out within the vehicle where they will not take up space. It would be nice if they went into the floor or something. But honestly that really is my only complaint.

Extremely reliable in accidents!

This is a great car! I have been involved in two different accidents while driving it and it held through both of them while the other person's vehicles were totaled! It is not only extremely resilient but, the digital feature to remind you of your oil levels is also extremely nice to have. It takes a lot of responsibility off the chest of the driver to no longer have to count their miles between changes. I am also a large fan of how comfortable of a height the car is at, I do not have to jump up into it yet it remains above the level of oncoming traffic headlights. This is especially nice for any elderly person who is getting into my vehicle as well as they do not have to crouch, bend over or jump up to enter my car!

SUV car without the size (also don't buy salvage cars)

I bought this car because I loved my last car, a 2007 Ford Escape, and wanted a similar one. I love how great it is in the snow and how much cargo space I have. I also love that though it's an SUV, it doesn't feel like one. I love that I can park in almost any space, size-wise. The issues I have aren't so much related to the make and model, rather that I bought it as a salvage (though the sellers didn't tell me that prior to purchase) so I've had issues with their sloppy repairs. Such as they didn't prime the paint so it's peeling off the back. They also repaired the wiper fluid hose using a Bic pen canister. Other than things like that, I love this car as it's great in the snow.

Reliable family Ford Escape.

My Ford Escape is reliable and comfortable. I have a basic model so it does not have the fancy features. However, for our family it holds athletic gear and the four of us well. I often take my children and friends where they want to go and it is reliable. The issue I have is with engine light and sensors in the vehicle. They are on often, however the car runs well. It has automatic locks, CD player, no cap gas tank, cruise control, etc. It is a manual transmission and tides smoothly in town and on the freeway. Windows are large enough so there are not big blind spots. My Ford Escape does not have four wheel drive, however I wish it did. It is a feature that many have.

This vehicle is great overall!

I love my vehicle. It is very roomy. It has great sound. It has great gas mileage. It is stylish. It is comfortable and it also fits 3 small car seats side by side. It has had a few issues. I had a brake problem that caused them to fail but I fixed the issue before it caused any accidents. It also has a key ignition issue. It is wore out and it very hard to get it to start. It has a lot of play in it. I have to replace that part but that isn't a big issue. The vehicle drives well and has good power to it. Overall it has been one of my favorite vehicles.

- Jennifer H

Lots of cargo space. Reliable, dependable and smooth ride.

It is a good compact SUV that drives nice and seats 5 comfortably. Large storage space with spare under the vehicle. The gas mileage is better than a large SUV but is not made for lots of city driving. It drives loud but smooth. I like the cup holders and center console. I am short so like the seat and steering wheel adjustments. It is dependable and reliable with great cargo space. The only real complaint is the loud ride, I have to turn stereo up louder than I would like and it is difficult to have a Bluetooth conversation because of noise.

2009 Ford Escape - A reliable A to B vehicle that is a pleasure to drive.

Our 2009 Ford Escape has been a great vehicle for our young family of three. It has shown itself to be reliable, easy to maintain, and, very importantly, safe. One feature that we have come to love since having our baby is the quick clip brackets for the baby's car seat base. We have gone on 10+ hour trips in this vehicle and remained comfortable throughout the entire trip. The few problems that we have encountered include a broken windshield wiper fluid pump and a worn out actuator on the rear lift gate. Parts for this vehicle are easy to find.

My 2009 Ford Escape. It is a decent car to own.

My Ford Escape is a pretty good SUV, although I feel it looks more like an older person car. I have only had minor problems with my sub. It performs pretty good. I cannot really complain. It is very reliable. It has never stopped on me. My brakes have to be changed again. They were changed in March 2017 and they are grinding again. It is pretty comfortable. I just have cloth seats but I do love my Bluetooth and Siriusxm those features are wonderful. I will never get another vehicle without it.

Ford escape: practical car.

The ford escape is incredibly reliable and sturdy car to meet all of my needs. I live in New England where the weather can be unpredictable, and the escape gives me the opportunity to go about my day without any worries about the car having trouble getting through rain or snow. It drives comfortably and is a very practical car. With over 150,000 miles on it I have been forced to get some maintenance work done on the car, but because it is a ford it is always easy to get it take care of.

- Ashley C

Reliable every day runner.

Has been a reliable, everyday driver. Perfect for running errands requiring a lot of stop and go city driving. Interior has plenty of room for two car seats with children. Hatch area also has ample room for kid accessories and groceries. Have never had any major work done to vehicle. Routine maintenance and consumable parts such as wiper blades and brakes are not expensive to replace. Overall experience with this vehicle has been headache free and wallet friendly.

- Don M

The back seats fold down for extra storage

My 2009 Ford Escape has over 120,000 miles on it and I have loved it since the day I got it. It is the perfect size. I love how the back seats lay flat for extra storage. It is fuel efficient. I like the color-dark gray. It has run very well. Routine maintenance is all it has needed so far except the front diff has been repaired twice and has not been very expensive to repair. I wish they had the same model in 2019. I would surely buy the same vehicle.

- Virginia J

I feel safe and it hugs me like a warm pillow.

I have a Ford Escape hybrid and I just love it!! I never have to worry about car "stuff" because it lets me know when it needs oil or gas or tires rotated. It is certainly the most comfortable car I have ever owned ~ and I have had quite a few before I got this one. I am not married, so I do not have a guy around to do all the "car stuff" men seem to love so much. Mostly, I feel safe in this car. I trust it and it has never let me down in any way.

- Carolyn W

Fun to Drive, reliable and economical, long-lasting

I love my car, it has leather seats, gets about 25 mpg, is responsive, is a 4 cylinder to save gas, and I can use it to haul almost anything I need to. I like the way it handles on the road, and is good in snow or on ice. The only thing I don't like is the chrome trim on the console and dash as it can create blinding reflections on sunny days, and the way the instrument cluster window is angled also produces a blinding reflection in the corners.

Problems with 2009 Ford Escape

This car has advantages, but also has its defects. The major problem is with the power steering assist control module. I is located on the steering column under the dashboard. When it fails it will cost between $800 and $1200 to get it replaced. Another problem is the tire pressure indicator system, which doesn't indicate which tire sensor is bad. You have to go a tire dealer to have it replaced and cost $95 just for the sensor.

- Charles T

All in all, it is a pretty reliable car.

Very dependable car, is versatile, has all the bells and whistles that I need, and gets decent gas mileage. I had a problem with the check engine light coming on a few times. First time was a faulty fuel injector which was replaced and ran fine after that. The second time was a defective throttle body which was replaced and runs ok when it warms up but vibrates a bit when cold. I think the dealer erred a bit when installing it.

- Alan E

2009 Ford Escape XLT 4WD Premium Wheels, Factory color changing interior lights.

Has leather seats, towing package, moonroof, 4WD, backup sensors. Runs and drives well. Has 238,000 miles on it and still running strong. Dislike that the back brakes are drum and not disc like the front. Does need some suspension work now, but not upset cause the car has such high miles. I have not towed anything with it so can't comment on it's ability but overall a great car, love the look of it, comfortable and roomy.

- Kayla A

Still going strong with 100k miles.

Our Escape has been a good means transportation for the time we have had it. With a little over 100k miles on it, only issue we had was a fuel injector go bad around 70k miles. Aside from normal wear and tare, like brakes and tires, we have really had no problems. We like that you do not have to worry about switching into 4 wheel drive, so for people that deal with snow, it has also proven to be good in snow.

- Jay D

Great starter SUV for a teenager or first time driver in winter months.

I really like my Ford Escape. It is great in the winter and I love the heated seats. Has a great sound system and I love the Bluetooth ability. The seats are not the most comfortable and often hurt my back. Causing this vehicle not the be the greatest for long term road trips. However, living in Michigan with very crazy winters, the all wheel drive is amazing. I would also really enjoy to have more space.

- Megan W

195,000 and never had to do a thing to it outside of normal upkeep

It has high miles and has never had to have a thing done to it other than the norm, brake shoes, new tires, tune ups, and oil change. Rides well but is a bit on the loud side. Overall, it is a fantastic vehicle approaching 196,000 Miles. Starting to have some shifting issues but I guess that is to be expected approaching 200,000 Miles. We bought it new and have certainly gotten our money out of it.

- Tami W

Needs rear vents, leather and more comfortable seats. Has great handling.

It drives nice, it is good size for a family vehicle, leather seats would be better because of kids, the front seats are not comfortable, and it would be nice to have air/heat vents in the back seat for the kids. The interior color is not great, maybe darker colored seats. Other than that it drives smooth, has nice handling, fast breaking, and seems like it would hold up fairly well in an accident.

- Ashley D

The Escape gets great gas mileage. It surprised me since its a crossover. Both on the highway and even in town, the mileage is amazing.

Although it has been a safety feature for awhile, the side curtain airbags. Many years ago, I was in a rollover car accident in the Escape and those airbags saved my mother's, fiance's, and my life. I remember my head hitting that airbag at least 5 times. 2 weeks later, my fiance and I were able to get married on the original date. Without those airbags, it could have easily been 3 funerals.

- Rachel S

Ford Escape hybrid is fun to drive.

My 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid drives smoothly and gets decent gas mileage. However, there is are issues with the weatherstripping on all doors and windows which results in water filling the doors after steady to heavy rainfall. Because of this issue, the motor in the rear hatch has shorted out. Yet, Ford has yet to issue a recall on this issue that apparently has affected a LOT of vehicles.

- Holly S

Love driving the Escape! Roomy, comfortable and dependable.

I love that it sits up higher so that I am better able to see things around me (and around the snowbanks in the winter). I love the four-wheel drive for the wisconsin winters. I love the cargo space and all the room - and the roomy back seat area. What I do not like is that it takes two hands to open the liftgate - one to press the release button and the other to "help" the lift raise.

- Sharon B

Very Well Traveled Ford Escape!

Overall I love my vehicle, (Ford Escape 2009) I travel so much and I have put almost 250,000 miles on it with very minimal issues. It is great on gas and it's roomy and comfortable inside! Recently I had a leak in my gas tank, but it was easily fixed. Wear and tear is going to happen on any and every vehicle over time, but I'm very happy with my Ford and how long it has lasted me.

- Shelby G

It is a very dependable vehicle.

I love my Escape and highly recommend them. I have 190, 000 miles on it, I drive 75 miles daily for my job. It has never failed me! My husband services it so it has been well taken care of. We recently put just liability insurance on it, I plan to drive it as long as possible. I would love to have a new vehicle, do not want to spend the money. My next one will be another Escape.

- Tina L

Ford car that is safe for me and my family.

it has great mileage, enough room for groceries and family trips. It has safe great safety features such as roadside assistance. I am able to drive and reach the pedals of my car so another plus. And Ford has just been always the best brand to buy we use to have a 2013 ford fiesta and then I had a car accident and that car save my life. Ford industries has a lifetime customer.

- sapphire L

It's been well cared for and maintained by one owner.

I have only had one major problem in my 9 years of owning this vehicle. Ford quickly and accurately corrected the issue. My car was no longer under warranty, however Ford paid 75 percent of the repair cost. My Ford dealer does good and honest work. My car is in beautiful shape, no body or interior damage. I keep it washed and cleaned and garaged....so it looks great too!

- Chellie S

Very dependable & comfortable

There have been no major problems to be fixed. It has been very reliable. It is comfortable to travel long distance. It gets around well in the winter even being a 2wd. The sunroof is a nice extra feature. One major downfall is with the cloth seats. They hold water spots. When a raindrop hits them or condensation from a bottle of water or soda gets on them, they leave a mark.

- Lynda S

The spacious 2009 ford escape XLT.

The ford escape XLT is an amazing vehicle to own. It is very spacious with foldable rear seating. Wonderful for kids or dogs! The sunroof is large and very accessible. The vehicle itself has good gas mileage and drives smooth. The air conditioning is cold and the heat gets sweltering. But once again the spacious room of the vehicle helps disperse air throughout the vehicle.

- Drew K

Great family SUV, great for travelers, great for moving, perfect size.

Performance is great love it. Very reliable car. There is a lot of features on this car. Mood roof, Bluetooth connection. Seat are comfortable, a lot of legroom. U haul a lot in back. Problem: clip in back door to help move the windows up and down break after awhile and a clip that connects that help open the door will come loose. But it is a easy fix.

- Rosemary A

It is very durable and reliable.

I currently have 215, 000 miles on my car. I have only replaced the struts and the driveline. I am not very nice to this car in the way of roads I drive at least 10 miles a day on really rough dirt roads. This car has taken a beating and keeps going. There is nothing super fancy about this vehicle but it has been a great dependable everyday vehicle.

- Melanie G

Ford Escape- great family car.

This vehicle has been great for the family life. There’s enough room in the back for two car seats and the trunk is spacious enough for our double stroller. I have had it for 2 1/2 years now and have never had a significant issue with performance. There have been minor issues with a warning light, but other than that it has been a great purchase.

- Emily K

An economical car with the storage, comfort, and style anyone will appreciate.

It is extremely reliable, I never worry about it breaking down or having any serious issues. It is comfortable for all passengers, and has plenty of room for all of my gear. The sunroof is an added bonus. The sound system works great and I love being able to hook up my phone to the car so I can answer calls and listen to music from my phone.

- Caitlin O

Great car for the price. Very reliable.

The miles per gallon is great and there is a lot of room in the car so that travelling long distances is comfortable. How the bad seats fold down is a great feature as well so that you can pack and carry more in the car. The heat in the winter warms the car quickly. There is a lot to like about the car. The moonroof is also a nice feature.

- Mike P

Ford Escape, my favorite vehicle.

My vehicle has been very dependable. Only minimal repair has needed. I have put on 250,000 it still runs like new. Great gas mileage for an SUV as well. Its spacious enough for my tall 14 year old to sit in the back seat. It's not too high off the ground that you have to climb into it. I would purchase one multiple times over again.

- Lacey M

The car has excellent gas mileage for an SUV, averaging 22 city and up to 28 highway.

This is the second Ford Escape I've owned and I personally love this vehicle. I have rarely encountered issues throughout the life of my first and second Escape that go beyond standard repairs (breaks, wiper blades, filter changes, etc.). This car is rugged and perfect for traveling while still compact and fuel efficient for a mini SUV.

- kasey c

It's roomier inside than you would think. There is leg room in the back seat even when the front seat are moved back.

I love that I get great gas mileage! I really like that it sits a little higher than a car but not too high that it's difficult to get in and out of. The space when I fold down the seats is great too, much more room than a car trunk. I'm in sales so it is great that it basically folds completely flat so I can fit lots of stuff.

- Gwen D

Ford Escape - across the country twice and still runs amazing!

The car performs great, and never gives me any problems. Very reliable and can always get parts/ services for good prices. I bought the car used and it has been a god sent. Got me across the country twice and still runs amazing. Even though the car is close to 10 years old, there has been no major indicators that the car is aging.

- Britt R

An interesting detail about my vehicle is it doesn't have an aux cord outlet

it's very comfortable with padded leather seats. it's great on gas and I get great miles on it. It's very reliable in all types of weather such as snow, rain, and even dirt roads. The vehicle has ac and heated seats. It includes a great radio system that lets me listen to music and the news. Also it has four wheel drive included.

- D'Angelo G

Made to last & made to drive; anywhere, any time.

The Escape is a very comfortable vehicle. Great for long drives. The 4WD enables me to drive ever day & everywhere, no matter the weather. The interior & exterior have more than held up over years, it actually still looks new. I have 120, 000 miles on this vehicle & nothing over the years besides minor repairs. I am very pleased.

- Jackie E

Handsome, durable and comfortable.

It is a second hand car. It has too much rust oh the bottom side. One of the ignition coils and spark plugs broke down. Performance is very good but it is not sporty. The gear switching is slow. Comfort is very good. Leather seats are comfy. Inbuilt nav system is very good for its age. Bluetooth media is also very satisfying.

- Gigi I

If you live in a city, or don't do a lot of highway driving, you will save money on gas and help the environment, because it is a hybrid

My car is a hybrid, which means it gets really good gas mileage when driving in the city. When driving on the highway, it's gas mileage is about average. It has heated leather seats and the back seats can fold down all the way to provide lots of trunk space. It had Bluetooth which makes hands free talking on the phone easy.

- Sofia D

Dependable vehicle with sync system.

Check engine light stays on and gas cap light comes on but drives great. Comfortable seats, and they are adjustable. Back seats can be put down to expand the cargo space for large items. Has a sync system so you can sync your phone and other devices to the vehicle as well as a spot to plug in an iPod or other music device.

- Tiffany S

practical, sensible fun, gets the job done and is cheap to keep

MY CAR IS A HYBRID SO IT IS CAPABLE OF INCREDIBLE GAS MILEAGE It can be very quiet when running on batteries it has reasonable cargo capacity it is fast if it needs to be it has a great audio system it has very smart tech built into it it handles great it has four wheel drive and is a suv my mother calls it the miracle cr


I enjoy the lay flat seats.

I love my car. It is big enough to be able to pack camping gear, strollers, car seats, backpacks, and all of my ski gear, probably at once if I needed to. It small enough that it is practical around town and easy to park. It is also has high enough clearance to be able to camp off the beaten path and has 4 wheel drive.

- Amanda M

Very reliable car that has good gas mileage for a crossover SUV.

Rethink car is very good on gas mileage. This car is very reliable. It gets me to and from any place I need to go and has never given me any problems. I bought the car as a certified pre-owned car from my local dealership. I would highly recommend this car to anyone looking to buy a certified pre owned car in the future.

- Amy A

Escape hybrid rocks! Great car!

Performance, reliability, and gas mileage are amazing. Only needed one repair so far. The transmission cable snapped, but otherwise car has been amazing and I am incredibly satisfied. It rides very well, nice exterior and interior, very spacious. Hybrid was a great option for me and it has helped me save a lot of money.

- Jacqueline M

I love how I am able to connect my phone through Bluetooth to talk on the phone

no problems with it at all! everything works great it was my dad's car and he passed it along to me when it was all paid off and there is never any problems with it. The gas mileage is the only thing that could be a problem as it runs low pretty quickly and sometimes the gas tank leaks but other than that it's great!

2009 Ford Escape XLT- Everything in Newer vehicle but Used

Sturdy, no serious mechanical issues, great for hauling and travel, gas mileage is decent, roughly 15 gallon gas tank, easy clean cloth seats, sunroof is a nice added feature, auto locks and windows, remote start, travels smooth, trunk has lift gate and window latch, am/FM stereo and CD player, Bluetooth enabled

- Beth R

The Perfect Car for Anyone

I bought my car used almost a year ago and still have not had any problems with it. It's always reliable even with the high mileage of over 150,000. The size of this SUV is perfect. It's not too big and not too small. If I had to buy another car it would be a newer version of my current model or very similar.

- Gabrielle P

Holds up well, even after hitting a deer at 45 MPH!

The only problem right now is that the check engine light is on for the gas cap but my model doesn't have a gas cap so the technicians think it's a small leak. Drives and functions well! I love the layout of everything. Super easy to adjust volume and AC/Heat without having to take your eyes off of the road.

- Ashley B

Throttle issue, wrench light comes on and it slows down then dies.

Honestly, the only real problem I have had is the little wrench comes on and the car slows way down then dies. You wait a minute and restart it. You have to replace the throttle when that starts happening and it seems common after about 10 years. Other than that this car has been the best I have ever had!

- April R

My 2009 Ford Escape is Rusty but Trusty

I've had this car for 7 years and had minimal issues. It's very comfortable and easy to see out of. It sits up high enough that I don't have many blind spots. As an older car, it doesn't have the most up to date features and that is the only downside for me. For now, it is worth the reliability and comfort.

- Erin H

It's a Hybrid. While generally quite reliable, it's expensive to repair when something related to that system goes bad.

It's a Ford Escape Limited Hybrid. I like the size and styling, love satellite radio and the nav system with sync. Because it's a hybrid, it is a challenge for regular mechanics. Right now I have a persistent fault code and I'm going to have to take it to the dealer. there goes $1000 in diagnostic work.

- Joseph P

Very dependable car with great gas mileage.

I really like my Ford Escape. It has never let me down. A very comfortable car that drives smoothly. There is lots of storage room in the back especially when the back seats are let down. My car is red which is my favorite car color. I also get great gas mileage especially on a long trip which is very nice.

- Maggie W

Other than the couple issues I mentioned, this vehicle is lovely and fun.

The only problems I have come across are ignition switch possibly as when I put the key in to turn on, I have to try several times, so I think maybe something in there needs replaced. Also there is a tire pressure sensor that has gone bad and it tells me every time I drive on a highway after about 20 mins.

- Dawn A

Dependable Midsize SUV!!

My Escape has never had any consistent issues. I've had to fix a few problems over the last 5-6 years but it has no recurring problems. It is a very reliable and comfortable, smooth ride. I like the body shape and the interior is very spacious compared to newer models of the same vehicle. I like mine best.

- Lauren K

Research carefully before you buy a ford.

Steering problems that a recall had not fixed. It was expensive and Ford would not help with it. Hinges on hatch window deteriorated and glass fell off. Wheels do not seal to tires and tire pressure sensors do not work properly. Check engine light is on more than off, but diagnostics say nothing is wrong.

- Ray S

I love my Escape. I love the size, shape and the large windows.

I bought my car used in 201, I love the make and model but I have had a few problems. My income is such that I can not afford another car so I have to pay for keep up and repairs. I did need to replace the transmission in 2017 but all is good now. I love the cargo space in the back and I get good mileage.

- Mary C

Good gas mileage and overall driving experience

Great family car! No major issues with it at 163000 miles. Bought used and still only basic shop time. Reliable. Good on gas! Comfortable ride. Plenty of space to carry everyday things. Has been very reliable in both summer and winter! Haven't had any issues driving in snow or any other weather or terrain

- Daniel D

SUV. Easy to navigate. Great gas mileage. Sporty look.

It is a SUV and is easy to steer. It has a sporty look. It is good in all weather. Good gas mileage. It has satellite radio which is fun. It is a 4 door vehicle which makes things easier. The whole trunk opens or just the glass depending on my needs. It has a square shape so its very easy to navigate.

- Michelle F

Good car for families and those with little children.

Easy to fix when things go wrong and the parts are not too pricey. I like the size of the car and the trunk is the perfect size for a stroller while still having room in the back seat for a car seat. The doors open wide to make it easy to get things in and out of the back seat. Overall good mom car.

- Ana M

Blue 2009 Ford Escape black interior all wheel drive.

I purchased my vehicle used. Right after I purchased it, I had to replace the tires and starter(I purchased through a dealer with a shop and they would not work on it). I have had to make a major repair on it nearly every year. I like the size of the car. It has very basic features, nothing special.

- Sarah L

My limited edition Escape has the bells and whistles that come with that.

My Escape is a 2. 5l 4 cylinder. It lacks power especially on hills. However on long trips on mostly flat surfaces it rides fairly well and is comfortable. The outside noise is a bit on the loud side, mostly from the tires. I am hoping with new and a different brand of tires that noise will lessen.

- Rene T

Owner review of 2009ford Escape.

Perfect for a small SUV, for a individual or small family. Back seats fold down or additional room for storage. Very reliable, like the visibility of the windows, in the cab of the vehicle is loud or noisy, had issues with the throttle body, which was covered under a Fords extended warranty recall.

- Angel P

Roomy and drives very well.

It is big enough inside for my 2 children, rides and drives nice, very comfortable seating and easy to view when driving. The v6 engine is peppy with good towing. Plenty of room for hauling, and drives very well in all weather conditions. I strongly recommend it and would buy another Ford Escape.

- James S

Good reliable vehicle. Great mileage. Good safety features. Good resale value.

I have over 163000 miles on my Ford Escape and it has been a good vehicle, great fuel mileage, comfortable inside. Has good safety features. The only problem I have had is having to replace all of the tire pressure sensor faults. Other Ford Escape owners I have talked to have not had to do this.

- Pearl D

The car's fantastic features.

It has no problems. It drives good. It is a very comfortable car. It can tell me if something is wrong with it. The windshield wipers have more than one delay control. I love that. Phone has a way to talk on it in the car without putting phone up to ear. Car locks automatically after taking off.

- Tamara C

Dependable, and warm SUV for all seasons.

My Ford Escape is great. I can rely on it in the winter, and living in Wisconsin that is a big deal. This is a casual, and comfortable vehicle that I can count on. I have not had any problems with the upkeep of this vehicle. When I am ready for a new vehicle, I am looking at another Ford Escape.

- Sue W

Good car, for the price paid.

SUV has good performance for price, and good space for its size. The only bad thing so far, are the warning sensors, lights light up when nothing is wrong with car, making it very difficult to pass an inspection. Would love to find an easy solution to this problem without replacing everything.

Great car but needs fixes more than I thought

The windshield wiper reservoir breaks so I have to get that repaired for my car. Also there are tech issues with it like only blasting air on the 4th setting and the ac breaks. Heat works. Car is nice for what I got it for but has added up expenses wise over time. I like fords the best though

- Lauren G

Comfortable ride and I love the heated seats in the winter!

It is very comfortable. It has been very reliable. Parts are easy to obtain. It is economical. There is plenty of room for luggage etc! I love the heated seat option! I also love the auto start especially in very cold weather or very hot weather. I would highly recommend this car to everyone!

- Shirley V

It is a pretty reliable car. I would purchase another one.

I purchased my vehicle used from a local dealer. I should have researched more about the car I was buying. It was not certified by the dealer, my mistake. I had to replace the transmission 3 months after I got it. I have had it for 3 years now and have had no other major issues with the car.

- Jennifer J

My 2009 Ford Escape is a very great reliable vehicle.

My 2009 Ford Escape is very reliable and smooth. I would recommend this vehicle to lots of people. I have had this car ever since I have been driving. It is my first car and has always been a great car. The problems I have with the car are the problems I have with the brakes and the mileage.

- Cassie G

It's very good on gas and has enough room for my family and I.

My 2009 Ford escape is a great vehicle. I've owned it since new. I've never had any major problems from it. It's been a very reliable and dependable vehicle. The ride is smooth and comfortable. It's been all that I've expected. I would definitely recommend it to others looking for a new car.

- Scott F

The best gas mileage vehicle ever

This car is awesome with gas mileage, great space, my only complaint is that the window are not tinted so it's hard to keep the car cool. I have about 100,000 miles on the car and just recently the air conditioner broke but the air still works. Other minor things are starting to break down.

- Donna W

2009 Ford Escape- excellent condition and purrs like a little !

This truck has never let me down. I bought it used, but it was in excellent shape and condition. I've had a few minor issues but nothing that couldn't be fixed. I feel safe in this vehicle. I plan on keeping it until it stops working. It's great on gas and is just overall a wonderful truck.

- Stacy H

Hybrid, sporty and works great around town. Be aware of issues with steering wheel, we had to pay out of pocket for repair.

I love that it is a hybrid. I don't like the air conditioning, it really doesn't work. I like the actual "look" of the car. We had to pay for a malfunction of the car, something with the steering wheel - I didn't like that about Ford. It was a recalled item, but we still had to pay for it.

- Amy V

2009 Ford Escape, reliable and fun to drive.

Nice little SUV. Fun to drive, reliable, front wheel drive works great in rain and snow. Have taken 9n several trips across the country in all kinds of weather and never had a problem. Also only need to have a lube, oil, and filter service done every five thousand to seven thousand miles.

- Brian L

I want to highlight is the hands free component of sync, it's such a safety bonus

I love my SUV it is reliable and typically has no maintenance problems. It's comfortable, rides well, and very spacious. I have dogs and they ride comfortably, as well as moving furniture. It's a great family car. I have sync for hands free with my phone so it makes driving much safer.

- Jackie K

Love that it is only 4 cylinder.

I love this vehicle, not to big, not too small. It is only a 4 cylinders so not a gas guzzler. And added bonus there is no gas tank cover, so in the winter the cover will not freeze. I hope when the time comes for me to purchase a new car they still have those offers in the newer models.

- Cheryl A

A great escape. A family vehicle.

I love my escape! I have side rails for easy access, a sunroof and the seats are easily removable. My escape is great on gas as I drive an hour every day for work. I only fill up once a week. The rear luggage is great for long trips and groceries. I would definitely recommend an escape.

- Tara M

The Ford Escape is a great car for small families or individuals.

I love my escape. It's the perfect size for my needs. It gets great gas mileage. It's 10 years old and I've kept up with the maintenance so no serious problems. The fan blade broke off last year but was able to get that fixed with no problems. It performs well for its age and mileage.

- Tammy S

2009 Ford Escape: a great vehicle.

My car is very reliable and feels so comfortable for both day-to-day transportation and longer trips out-of-town. The car is an optimal size for travelling on a road trip with a few passengers, and I highly recommend it! The gas mileage would be my only complaint as it is not great.

- Marcus M

Roomy conventionally made gas saver.

Ford Escape minivan has been awesome just maintaining maintenance as with any vehicle helps longevity very roomy with the removable seats good for traveling with the grandkids I would recommend the Ford Escape to any family with children for getaways it is excellent on gas mileage.

- Yolanda M

2009 silver Ford Escape limited.

It is silver, it has a few minor dents in the hood from a hail storm. It has tan leather seats. It has colored lights on the inside. It has 120000 miles. It has almost brand new tires, with a tire warranty as well. It also has tan car mats. It is missing the middle row headrests.

- Rachel D

It's perfect spatially wise for 1-3 people to fit comfortably with space in the trunk.

sound system with sometimes glitch out and not allow Bluetooth to connect, or not allow any music to play at all whether it be radio or through a USB cable. The gas level also fluctuates unpredictably occasionally from a fuel level of 400+ miles when it should be at roughly 350.

- Hannah D

All black interior. Which I love. Smells brand new. Sunroof.

The only issues I have with my escape is that the trunk won't open. Only the glass door will. Also when I turn my car on the dash makes a long and loud beeping sounds for about 45 seconds. It may be an error in the dash with wires or something. Other than that it's a great car.

- Ariel H

Garage kept. Receives all scheduled service.

This vehicle has been garage kept since new. Very low mileage-under 49, 000 and body looks great. A very comfortable and reliable car. It has a retractable sunroof and all systems function perfectly. The car has received all regularly scheduled maintenance and handles like new.

- Frank M

I like the hatchback as well.

It is very roomy. I like how the seats can go down making it easier to carry more cargo. Rides smooth. The transmission is starting to make a strange noise though.it's also very good in gas for it being an SUV. It can comfortably ride 5 people and a pet in the back trunk space.

- Virginia F

The four wheel drive helps out great in the snow.

It is a very solid older car, don't have many complaints. The back hatch did malfunction and had to be replaced due to poor weather-stripping on the back window and the bottom of it is rusting out. However, it runs well, is roomy, dependable in winter weather, and drives well.

- Raymond K

Great car for young women in life crisis.

This car is amazing. Really smooth to drive and amazing colors! Would recommend to anyone! When I first bought this car I was going through a really hard time and this car changed my life! I am a new women because of this car. I have new friends and it is all due to this car!

- Sarah K

Reliable, decent acceleration, comfortable and easy maintenance

Great car, I have never had issues with it. As long as you regularly maintain the vehicle, it works very well, I've clocked mine over 200k miles and it's working perfectly fine. If you're looking for a cheaper small SUV it's perfect. Good on gas too. I'd recommend getting one

- Ben B

Long life on ford escape and it is been the best vehicle I have ever owned.

I have had it ten years and have had zero issues. No lie, it is been fantastic. The ride is not perfect, but it is an SUV. I've never gotten stuck in the snow, the gas mileage is pretty decent, it is roomy enough for my dog, and I would gladly buy another one eventually.

- Matt W

The Ford Escape has a truck engine.

I love how I feel safe and comfortable in my vehicle. The only problems that I have had with my Ford Escape has been with the windshield wiper fluid pump and a sensor going bad with the gas pedal. After the problems have been fixed, I still feel like I have a reliable car.

- Jessica H

Great vehicle, maintenance options could be better.

It's been great until recently, having only the dealership as an option for maintenance is far too expensive. It meets my needs, but financially it is becoming a burden that is difficult to maintain. I've considered how to get a different car because of maintenance issues.

- Amber T

My 2009 Ford Escape and everything that comes in the package.

The car I have is a Ford Escape. Because its a 2009 you have to remove something to get to the part you need to fix from underneath. It needs to be run thru inspection more than the normal car. Oil changes once a month and wheels have to keep being rotated every so often.

- Drew N

Good and Bad features of a Ford Escape.

Great vehicle, however the electric power steering goes out at time, and the transmission is slipping, also having problems with the throttle body. However, I do love this vehicle, I just wish I had gotten it in four wheel drive. Good family car, with lots of truck space.

- Amy S

Ford Escape - simple and reliable.

It gets me from point A to point B. No issues, nothing special. It has all of the features I need to get through my daily commute and any driving I need to do, but without the extra bells and whistles. It is simple but it gets the job done. I would recommend it to others.

- Nick W

2009 ford escape. Its an SUV, that is really safe and great for kids.

I love my ford escape. It's the safest vehicle I have ever had. There's a moon roof, you can adjust your seat height, an aux cord to play your own music and it tells you how many miles until e. It is really comfy and extremely reliable. My next car will be a newer escape.

- Lisa M

There isn't good pick up when I'm trying to merge onto a highway.

I love that my vehicle has power windows and locks and that it has bluetooth and a moonroof and I like the space it has. I don't like the ride much though. It's not smooth and it's not really comfortable for long trips. The seats are too basic and need to be upgraded.

- Missy R

It is a great family car.

We've had it for 6 years now and haven't have any problems with it. Very comfortable and space for the kids and the pets. We do a lot of traveling so that helps. We do our own repairs to it and oil changes and brake changes. So far it's been easy to keep it looking nice.

- Alicia M

One of the best fords made.

It is reliable has good mileage and performs well its comfort while driving is good and it has great gas mileage. Holds 6 people very comfortable ride and its controls are easy to use. It also is white which is an appealing color. It is one of the best fords made today.

- tammy B

It gets pretty good gas mileage for long distance driving.

I love that it is an SUV. However, with my growing family I am getting ready to upgrade to a larger SUV. I also wish my air conditioner would work on a lower number versus having to be on 3 or 4 all the time. Otherwise, I really do like everything else about my vehicle.

- Denise L

Not too bad for a mid grade SUV crossover vehicle.

Vehicle is comfortable and have not had any major issues. Electronic window did need repaired as would not roll up. Transmission pickup is lacking. Continuous erroneous dash light errors involving tire pressure. Not the top line model, but has decent standard features.

- Amanda S

Drives well and very comfortable.

Drives good and very safe has lots of room to move. Gas mileage is also great. I have had no problems with this vehicle and I have owned it for almost a year now. The vehicle is cheap on insurance and is white. There is a lot of room to fit groceries and very liable.

- Samantha S

This is a great family car. The ride is smooth and the inside is roomy.

The interior is nice and spacious. Microsoft sync makes everything easy with syncing your devices (phone, music, GPS). I have had some troubles with my car needing repairs that I have later found were common issues with my car. Other than that, I love this car.

- Robin L

Ford Escape.. Mid size mid luxury vehicle

Ford Escape is the perfect size and very comfortable. Plenty of legroom in both front and back. Mine is a 6 cylinder, runs great. Plenty of pep for the size car. I have replaced the ignition switch twice, the EgR valve once and one coil pack once in 165,00 miles

- Susan C

It's a nice SUV that is the small version of ford's SUV line.

The 2009 ford escape is a nice SUV it's the small version of ford's SUV line. It handles well in snow and rain. It is a great vehicle for the price. Mine has plenty of perks, heated leather seats, tinted windows and more. I just prefer the bigger version of any SUV.

- Michelle L

Ford escape 2009 owned for about nine years now.

It is reliable, easy to maintain, and very few issues since i've had it. Good mileage per gallon, only had one issue since I bought it used and back window wiper is not pressed against glass all the way. Other than that it is a nice easy car and good looking too.

- Raymond L

Ford Escape is a smooth comfortable ride.

The Ford Escape is a smooth running car. Gets decent gas mileage. But the sync is a real pain in the butt to sync and is almost impossible to do. I have not figured it out yet. The electric locks and windows work fine. The sky window at the top is nice at night.

- Janet M

Vinyl sheeting nice and small income tax

My vehicle hasn't had too many problems I really loved it since I've gotten it I totally recommend it to anybody. It's nice and easy to get around with pretty small but not too small. I got it sell my used car dealership very compacted. The color of it is red.

- Erica P

Easy to use and drive car.

It is a nice small SUV. Good on gas with get up and go. I really do not have an issue with the car or it is features. It is a simple no frills kinda car. Bought it used and haven't had any real problems. Drive it so see family and haul my two big dogs around.

- Abi H

It is a good size for myself and my family at this time of life.

I have had to make some repairs on it that were costly. I had to replace the starter right after I purchased it. I have also had to replace the windshield multiple times, the tires and tubing for the oil. It also rattles when it hits 45 miles per hour speed.

- Sarah G

Ford Escape overall review.

Everything is great just the seats are not comfortable for long drives and hard the clean them. Great gas mileage for the size and age of the car. Haven't had any motor or transmission problems, could have a little more power other than that good little SUV.

- Christopher C

2009 ford escape AWD loaded.

The performance is good, its AWD and handles well in the winter. Very reliable. There is a lot of room, the back seats fold completely down if needed. I feel it's a safe vehicle. It does have all the features, which is nice. I would recommend this vehicle.

- Tracy S

My Ford Escape is the perfect size SUV

The only problem I have with my vehicle is how quickly it's rusting. The rear wheel wells have busted out in rust and the underside of the rear hatch is rusty as well. This is really disappointing because the car is a 2009 and I've only had it for 4 years.

- Rachel Y

Good running car. Ac and heat work.

My vehicle leather seats. Automatic windows. Sun roof. Good tires. Bluetooth. .Rides get color beige have road control tint windows. .Gas saver automatic lights. Light in side different colors. Reliable. Heat and air Back. Windshield wiper chrome wheels.

- Tara L

It is completely safe as a family vehicle and so easy to use with a carseat.

my vehicle is a boxy shape and is an awesome pearlized green. My car is a hybrid and I LOVE that about it. My car is super comfortable to get in and out of and easy to load my toddler in and out of as well. I am completely happy with its performance.

- Elisabeth G

I totally love my 2009 Escape!!

Had my Escape for over 7 years now and I LOVE IT! No major issues and it has 170,000 miles on it now. New tires every 60,000 and oil change every 5000... no issues. A little surface rust on the rear quarters, otherwise the truck is in fantastic shape!

- James C

My favorite car the ford escape.

The ford escape XLT is the most reliable car I've ever owned it's great for long trips the gas mileage is awesome for an SUV of its size. Mine is slate grey and it's so amazing. I have never owned a better vehicle than this SUV. This concludes my input.

- Andrew M

Great for loading up, for moving, trips to dump, or even camping

With this vehicle we noticed that there were issues with the door sensors going off, but we were able to fix this. Back seats are able to fold down for more storage though there are no cup holders in the back. Front seats have plenty of storage space.

- Celia B

Rusting. Around the rear wheels and hatch because of how it's made.

I love how compact and square looking my car is. It's easy to back into spaces and park in general. It is easy handle. The only thing I don't like about it is that it feels as if its cheaply made and rusts around the rear wheels and hatchback opening.

- Tanya P

My car is very reliable and durable.

My car is really good, with great acceleration and great brakes as well. Drives over bumpy roads really smooth, and has smooth steering wheel movement as well. The gas mileage is also great, thirty dollars fills up the gas tank and runs for 300 miles.

- Luis V

It holds up really well. Mine is 9 years old and still looks new on the inside.

I love my Escape! It gets great gas mileage and is fun to drive. It can be uncomfortable at times for long drives and I don't like how the seats show stains and watermarks easily. But it's a very nice and reliable car. Also the parts are affordable.

- Adrianna L

It has a lot of space. The escape also gets pretty good gas mileage.

It seems like there is always something wrong with it and I need it to be fixed. Ford company cars other than mine have had many recalls (including one for mine that I just had to get fixed). Also things like the tire pressure fault stop working.

- Riley R

Great car, but some design details could have been worked out better

I like how the car gets good gas mileage and handles well in bad weather, I don't like that the rear window is always leaking water no matter what we do, also the heating controls should be dials so you can easily control it without looking long

- Chris M

Ford escape is comfortable and reliable.

I bought the car used in 2012. It has been very reliable. The fan speed in the ac system can only be on high or off. But this is the only problem I have had with it and that is only very recent. I find it is very comfortable and easy to drive.

- Debbie L

2009 Ford Escape I Love this SUV!

My Ford Escape has been a very reliable and dependable vehicle. I have not had any major issues and it has 125,000 miles. I would buy the car again. My only wish is that my current car was AWD and not FWD. It makes snow driving hard at times.

- jake p

It is a hybrid! For an SUV the gas mileage is very good.

It is a hybrid which is important to me. It is reliable. It has room for 5 adults and their luggage. Wish it had a built in navigation system. During rain & snow the moisture somehow flows over the top and collects on the back window.

- Harold W

It is an SUV that gets 35 miles per gallon and has over 100,000 miles trouble free.

My vehicle is a Hybrid (which was not one of the choices in your survey). It is the best vehicle I have ever owned. I am sad that Ford no longer makes this vehicle because it is 9 years old and I cannot buy another one from Ford.

- Maria D

It's the perfect size and style for a young adult or small family.

I like the way it drives. The car rides smooth, it feels safe, and it is a perfect size for me. I feel like I've had to do quite a few repairs on the car for the age and milage on the vehicle. All in all though, I love the car.

- Jessica C

My car is a discontinued marvel.

I love the color and the sunroof. I like the sync system. I used to love the roominess but now wish it would hold more people. It is also having problems due to the age of it. I really wish it had remote start on hot days.

- Kathryn P

This car works perfectly in my life

My ford escape has been a really wonderful vehicle for the past almost 10 years. It's getting a little older now, and more problems are starting to surface. All in all I would consider getting a new version of this model.

- ryan b

Great on gas for an suv mid 30s

This is ny 2nd one . First one major accident very safe. 2nd one i love it needs work but i got such a deal. Drives great just do maintenance and it wont let u down. Only 4 stars cause i wish it had things it doesn't have

- Rob M

It is a great family car. I love the size and the versatility of the vehicle.

I have had issues with the brake booster. It got a tear in it and had to be replaced. I have also had issues with the air conditioning. The air condenser had a leak. My transmission also needs to be looked a and flushed.

- Haley N

My car is very spacious inside and has good cargo space.

My vehicle has been a good one. I will probably get the same one again when it needs replacing. I am hoping to get to 200,00 miles. My main dislike is that the interior has not held up as well as it should have.

- Laura Y

Great value, and very roomy. Also the hands free phone is a necessity now.

I love my Ford Escape. It has the navigation system and hands free phone use as well which I didn't expect. Using this is wonderful. It has compartments built in that I wasn't aware of. I am proud of my purchase.

- Sandra B

Great vehicle and choice of transmission filter service

The Ford Escape 2009 is reliable and comfortable on my long trips. My only complaint would be the transition filter. The transmission filter is not replaceable and once it is dirty it causes havoc on the gears.

- Cortney L

If you want a reliable, versatile car, this is the one for you

It is a reliable family car that is really good in the snow. Overall reliability is pretty good although I have had VCT solenoid problems a couple of times. I like it enough that we bought another for my wife

- Chris W

excellent on bad winter roads

I live in Pennsylvania. Winters can be unexpected. The escape is very dependable. My has automatic 4 wheel drive. I can count on being able to get to work and back home. Roomy enough for the grandkids too

- Linda T

The most important thing others should know about the ford escape is that it is a reliable car that is also functional for many purposes.

I do not have any complaints regarding my vehicle. I love that it has plenty of room for passengers and/or cargo but that it's not too large. I also love that I am able to get good gas mileage in this car.

- Kayla S

The joys of doing a Ford Escape

I love this SUV. I really don't have many problems with it right now but when I first got it, the steering column had a recall and I was stranded ! I had my vehicle towed and had the recalled part replaced

- Roxanne S

Handling in snow is exceptional and the all wheel traction control makes driving a real joy.

My escape is a very economical vehicle. it is an all wheel 4 wheel drive, which gives a feeling of safety when driving in snow. my only complaint is that it is a 4 cylinder which complains when up hills.

- michelle s

What to improve on a the new ford escapes

My car is just pretty old. I have the basic model and it has broken down due to transmission problems. I love my car because it gets me from point A to point B but I don't think it will last much longer.

- Kylie S

That it's great on gas and driving.

I love my car its the right size for me not too big not too small. Very reliable and good for out of town trips. Great on gas and fits up to 5 people. Only problems is that the backseat could be bigger.

- Tiffany H




It's very dependable year round

Like it but was pushed into buying a car that had a lot of microsoft features that I really didn't want or need. I like driving the car though. Also the seats are black and extremely hard to clean.

- Debra W

A good vehicle for hauling or traveling with pets.

It is not a very comfortable car, but it is useful for traveling with my dog. All features are standard so does not offer anything exciting to the driving experience. A very utilitarian vehicle.

- Mary C

This car is a great size and rides wonderfully. The hybrid feature is also great!

My hybrid Escape is a great size, gets good gas mileage, and is comfortable. I bought it used but have only had to do normal maintenance and few repairs. Overall, I think it is a great vehicle.

- Aaron N

Nothing others need to know about my car only matters what I think.

I love it for the most part. But the ac and oil pan have been having issues and there is a tire sensor light that is always on and no one can figure out what is wrong in order to turn it off.

- Brittany G

It's roomy, spacious, and has a nice moonroof. It's also rather durable for any climate.

I like that the vehicle is easy to repair. It's perfect for the climate I live in and easy to take along for outdoor travel out of the city. I've taken it cross country without a problem.

- Janelle W

Long lasting vehicle if you are not someone who needs a new car often

It's older, but no major issues this far. Reliable and a nice rider. The only thing I dislike is that newer models have more features, but I have no need to trade since it runs great.

- Becky M

Again the height off the ground allows for seeing more.

The vehicle was bought from a place that promotes rust. Maybe at an auction. Besides that it has been a great vehicle for banging around town. I love how high it is. I can see more.

- Stacey B

Reliably and economically gets you from point a to point b.

A lot of little problems, Tailgate latch poorly designed, it stopped opening properly paid almost $1000 parts and labor to replace it worked for a while then same issue reappeared.

- Judith B

Great economical alternative to larger SUVs. Good MPG good longevity

I like the longevity of the vehicle, I am nearing 200k miles. I also like the mpg. I dislike the fact it cost so much to replace the AC and it is a little more car than I need.

- Bethany S

It has low maintenance and great gas mileage. Perfect for long distance travels as it's comfortable with plenty of room.

I love that it is a smaller SUV. It saves money on gas while having room for storage and passengers. I've never had any mechanical problems with it and I've had it for 7 years.

- Crystal S

Fuel efficient, rides smooth.

My vehicle is a hybrid which is something I really wanted in a vehicle and am very happy with. The truck has had some throttle problems which seem too common for this vehicle.

- George H

It is a good value for the money spent on it. It is dependable.

I love the color and the comfort of this SUV. I like that I can lay the back seats down for more space for hauling things and my big dog. I like the mileage this SUV gets.

- Kathy B

This car is dependable and has good cold air conditioning.

I like the space inside the vehicle. I also like the smooth ride of the vehicle due to a wide wheel base. I do not like how some of the interior details have faded over time

- Jill P

The computer will tell you if the car needs to have repairs

I love that the computer will tell me when I need to do things to the car. It's computer works well to keep reporting what needs to be done. i have no complaints as of yet


It is white, it's shaped like a Honda and it makes noises like a truck

My vehicle is great, it takes me places and I don't have to worry if it's going to break down. It sounds like a truck, and the seats are not leather. Just happy it drives

- Mikayla R

There are heated seats! They make all the difference in the world in a northern winter.

I love the heated seats. I like being higher up because it's an suv rather than a car. I like the size of it for my family and that there is leg room for my growing kids.

- Mandy S

It was one of the best cars I have ever had. I have never had any problems

I have loved my vehicle since I got it new in 2009. I have not had any problems. I have changed oil, tires and besides that only $2500.00 worth of repairs in 9 years.

- Connie F

I love my 2009 Ford Escape

I love my 2009 Ford Escape and everything about it! It has very minimal problems, in fact the only one I can think of is that the tire pressure sensor is very sensitive!

- Amanda M

Safe and Reliable; large and in charge.

This is a comfortable, reliable, and all around great car. It is very spacious. Has a lot of great features like the sunroof, hands free calling, keyless entry, etc.

- Victoria L

The car is easy to drive because it sits up high to see everything.

The car is easy to drive because it sits up high. The car gets good gas mileage when I take trips. The car has enough space for me to haul things that I need to haul.

- Dan G

It is very dependable and automatically kicks in four wheel drive on its own.

I like that my vehicle has plenty of room and gets good gas mileage. I dislike the fact that my radio reception is bad if I plug anything up in my cigarette lighter.

- Stacy J

Reliable, fuel efficient, quiet, and tows significant loads.

4x4, rides high, fuel average good, lots of space (both in cab and cargo), but back seats do not flatten at all (cannot increase cargo space or level floor space).

- Lyn W

It's a very reliable vehicle that will last for years to come.

My Ford Escape is very reliable. It has lasted a lot of years and miles and just keeps going. I get good gas mileage for an older vehicle and it still looks great!

- Shanna J

Pretty But They Can Do A Whole Lot Better On This Vehicle.

It's a good SUV but certain things I don't like . Depending on how you come in and out of the car. But I hate where the door latch is located and not accessible .

- Demetrius C

It is good in the snow and it can fit a lot of people as it is an SUV.

I like how my car is an SUV as i tend to get anxious driving little cars. I do not like how jerky it is when it drives. I also always have problems with my tires.

- Hayley W

Handles better than the newer ones. The body style sell better than the newer ones also

I like the way my for escape locks and handles. As it is ferring old my dislike is that it leaks oil . I still like the body style better than the newer models.

- Kimberly W

It has needed a lot of repairs considering it is only ten years old.

It is really cute looking. However, it has needed a lot of repairs. Mechanics have told me it was a really bad decision to buy it. The engine is pretty noisy.

- S S

It saves you on gas and mileage.

I like the size of my car.. I like the gas mileage my car gets.. I like the leather seats in my car.. I dislike that my car does not have blind spot mirrors.

- Lindsey C

It is a well made hybrid that has had no major malfunctions over many years.

It's a hybrid, so saves on gas. Runs very well and has required only routine maintenance. It's a bit rough riding and not as sound proof as we would like.

- Mike s

It is very comfortable and fun to drive! I look forward to driving my vehicle.

It has all the bells and whistles from that time period, but it is getting pretty old. There are several features in newer models that I would like to have.

- Elizabeth W

This car is a very reliable suv. And it's size makes it very useful for both passengers and cargo.

Although I have over 150,000 miles on this car, it is still reliable and relatively trouble-free. I have had very few repair issues, and it performs well.

- Ronald S

You ask for a headline and then demand more characters than a headline, what is up with that... My car is very functional.
