Extremely reliable in accidents!

2009 Ford Escape XLS

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!

Reliable every day runner.

2009 Ford Escape XLS

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

Great car for the price. Very reliable.

2009 Ford Escape XLS

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

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

2009 Ford Escape XLS

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

The Perfect Car for Anyone

2009 Ford Escape XLS

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

A great escape. A family vehicle.

2009 Ford Escape XLS

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

Not too bad for a mid grade SUV crossover vehicle.

2009 Ford Escape XLS

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

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

2009 Ford Escape XLS

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.

2009 ford escape AWD loaded.

2009 Ford Escape XLS

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

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

2009 Ford Escape XLS

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.
