Small size SUV, with sleek, heated leather seats.

I love the car I drive. It gets pretty good gas mileage. It is a perfect size for an SUV because it is compact and easy to park, but still has a great deal of leg room and feels spacious from the inside. It's an attractive looking vehicle. It is certainly reliable in every trip I have taken it on so far, driving smoothly and never "acting up". Some features I really enjoy are the heated seats, CD player and AUX plug-in, heating on windshield for snow and ice, etc. The seats are very comfortable. Mine has leather seats which are easy to clean and take care of. The interior is entirely black and dark gray, which can make it hot in the summer, but overall gives it a really nice and clean look. The exterior is sleek and attractive, a nice black finish. There is also plenty of compartments inside for belongings. There are 4 cupholders in the front with 2 more in the back. The back seats also have a small area in the middle with air vents, which could for sure be bigger (or there could be more), but this is still nicer than a lot of other cars.

My wonderful ford ' escape car'!

Given that I have owned this vehicle for about 7 years, there have been relatively few problems. I do a considerable amount of city driving everyday, as well as highway driving frequently. The gas mileage is of course better on the highway, but even with day to day travel it is good. With the exception of a few scratches and nicks which were not my fault, the body has held up well. The escape handles well in both city and highway conditions. I do not have rear wheel drive or 4 wheel drive, so if someone is unaccustomed to driving in snow they should be cautious. It is not a powerful car but the engine allows me to pass and merge easily. I feel that there is sufficient room for luggage when I go on a trip with my children, and it is still a comfortable vehicle.

The 2011 Ford Escape hybrid.

I actually have the 2011 Escape hybrid. It runs really well. I get roughly 30 miles a gallon and I can make a two hour drive on only a quarter tank. The 2011 comes with sync by Ford and it is really useful. While my phone is not compatible for the Bluetooth, I am able to hook it up via USB or AUX cord. The radio has am, FM, CD, and even an option for a Sirius radio subscription. Because it is a hybrid, it has a dual gas/electric system. When you are doing speeds 40 mph and under, the battery kicks in and it saves you gas. A couple of things I do not like is that you cannot set the radio to repeat on a specific song and the tank is pretty small. It is an 11 or 12 gallon tank.

Very good gas mileage and easy to work on.

The Ford escape is very reliable easy to drive, overdrive for driver, Bluetooth for phones, accommodates large and tall people, front seats lay completely down. The backseats one side is larger than the other side. Both back seats lay completely down for more tailgate room, bottom part of the seats will completely come out of the car and there is more storage space when the seats are taken out, the tailgate opens wide and the back glass also opens on its own for easy loading storage in the back for tools or other things to store, side pockets on all doors and in the rear gate area soft cloth seats nicely padded and comfortable. Different nice colors and a roof rack.

It is so fun to drive and a great family vehicle!

The only issues I have had with my vehicle are the tire pressure sensors going out. They are sensitive and the display does not say which one is out. I haven't had any performance issues with my vehicle, it is really comfortable and reliable. The air conditioner and heater work great! I do wish there were air vents in the back for the kids, but usually if I point the center vents toward the back, they feel it just fine. This model has a sun/moonroof, which I love on warmer days. This vehicle is easy to use and gives you that feel of a bigger car without feeling like you are hogging the road. I also love the AWD feature as it gets icy and snows were we live.

Ford Escape, a great ride with pricey weird issues.

Overall I would say the car is a great car to drive. When it comes to reliability though, I have had more mundane issues with the car than normal wear and tear issues. The vehicle is a pricey to upkeep with the random weird issues. Example of one was my clock froze and GPS does not connect to the satellite. The issues were caused by the same part that could cost $800 plus $450 labor. So I elected to use a phone for both when driving. Otherwise, the features are great, the car is extremely comfortable. Just beware of the extras that will cost in repairs. I recommend the maintenance package if you buy a Ford because of my experiences.

2011 Ford Escape. Affordable with convenience and comfort features.

This vehicle is reliable and has a lot of versatility on the inside with seats that fold down and a hidden storage compartment. Seat heaters are a bonus and they are nice on cold winter mornings. No problems, except had to replace battery once. Road noise is sometimes a little much, but overall a smooth ride. I like that you have the option to just open the back window as opposed to the whole back hatch. I have dogs and it prevents them from running out the back of the vehicle. I also enjoy having the digital mileage display. One thing I wish it had more of some "get up and go". It seems the acceleration is a bit draggy.

- Natalie W

It is the best car ever. I am obsessed with the way it drives.

It really is my favorite car, it drives really well. The gas lasts a good amount, the turning radius is good, the car is really comfortable and I also love the speaker system. The size of the car is perfect for driving people around and it is pretty easy to park. My friends drive my car sometimes and then fall in love with it right away. It is perfect for everyone, especially new drivers. It's a good car to learn to drive in because of its medium size. I absolutely am obsessed with it and will be so sad when the day comes where I have to get a new one.

- Caitlin S

Sturdy, reliable, comfortable.

Very reliable, comfortable ride, plenty of headroom for tall people, feels very well-built. Has lots of high tech I do not need or use. Design flaw--the wheel wells and back hatch door are prone to rust & expensive to repair. Mileage is about 23 mpg. Expensive to replace some of the lights--not because the bulbs are so expensive, but because they're hard to get at, so--labor time mounts up. Overall, I like the body design & the reliability. Have about 84 k on it now & have heard of one lasting into the 3000 k range.

- David A

Very reliable vehicle with little maintenance required. Roomy and comfortable.

This car has been the best vehicle I have ever owned. I got 60,000 miles on the tires before I had to replace them and 80,000 on the brakes. The car has cost me nothing in repairs. It is an extremely comfortable riding car and is good on gas. I average 26 mpg on a trip. I love the fact that you can tell by the indicator how many more miles you can travel before you need gas. Also the gas pump light indicator comes on the dashboard when you are down to 50 miles left before you run out of gas. It is a great feature.

- Patricia H

My beautiful and safe ride.

My car has a special gas cap that they discontinued after this particular 2011 make that causes me a lot of issues but besides that it is a car that I will continue to buy, it is reliable and feels safe and looks great. The leather seats and sunroof make it feel so posh and it drives well too. I am comfortable in it, and feel comfortable driving my kids and family in this car too. Even in the few times people have hit my car it still feels safe and like I am protected in it during such events.

- Julie R

Ford continues to hold onto me as a loyal customer.

I have had no problems with my Escape since I bought it brand new. It has everything on it that I need and then some. haven't been this happy with a vehicle in a long time. I only hope it doesn't end up costing me tons after the warranty runs out since the financial situation has changed drastically since I purchased the vehicle. Plus it is the only vehicle we have in our family now. haven't driven anything but a Ford in almost 40 years. don't let me down now.

- Candy R

My Ford Escape looks good, rides smoothly and shuts out the outside noise.

I bought the vehicle used. It has a door handle that I have to shove in so it closes. Very minor. It drives smoothly, I have had only one issue with ac, however, it was caused during servicing and the Ford dealership repaired it immediately. I love the openness of the car with windows that allows a good view from various angles. I have USB for charging small electronics. Gas mileage is good and with over 100k miles on the car, it is still running great.

- Rosa J

Family car & workhorse extraordinaire.

I love the escape, it drives very well and is comfortable. I use it as a utility vehicle, both to get around and fetch groceries and to haul lumber and construction materials for work. I am pleased with the gas mileage and the handling. The one thing that is a noticeable problem is the seams are rusting, which, from my research, is a common problem with this model. Other than that, I am nearing 100k miles and expect to drive it for a while to come!

- Cameron R

Four wheel friend that will be there when needed.

I have been driving it for 6 years and other than regular maintenance had zero issues with it I drive around 250 miles a week and would recommend it to anyone else I transport my son and animals with confidence I will get to where I am going. It is also good for long trips because there is plenty of room to pack things. It is the first car I bought that was an SUV and was nervous about a bigger vehicle but it is the right size for me.

- Chris F

It has never left me stranded.

I love the fact that it has heated leather seats for the winter. I love that I can basically can get radio access even when going up a mountain. I love the size of the vehicle itself... I do not like the fact that my vehicle is so loud when driven above 45 mph. I also do not like the fact that its leather so in the summer it gets really hot. I also do not like the fact that my AC at this point is blowing out hot hair instead of cold..

- Laney K

Affordable, dependable car.

My vehicle is very reliable and gets around in tight spots with ease. It is both roomy and extra leg space for comfort. Some of the things that I dislike are the blind spots making seeing oncoming cars difficult at times. One of the biggest things I dislike is getting the spare tire out. You have to be strong as this is very cumbersome. Most of all I think this vehicle is a great value and has been a good purchasing choice.

- Barbara C

Not many issues at all after eight years.

Small and easy to drive, gets decent gas mileage. It is a little weak going up hills sometimes. The seats sit a little high for me, and there is not enough leg room for me at 5'7'. The sunroof works great. I have had no problems with anything other than a leak in the back somewhere when it rains hard. Water drains down onto the liner in the back. I remedy it by leaving a gap so the rain drains into the trunk area and out.

- Cathy M

It has been so reliable and very easy to drive. It has a lot of room in the back when the seats are down.

I love my red ford escape. It has the perfect amount of room for me, my husband and 4 dogs. We often use it to drive all of us to the lake for the weekends. I like how the seats fold completely down and I have the back open for all the dogs and large objects. I love how reliable it is and how well it functions. The tire pressure sensors are very sensitive other wise I am lucky to say I have had no issues with the vehicle!

- Erica H

The great Ford Escape with hands free capabilities.

This is a really reliable vehicle. It has just enough space. The 2nd row seats can be let down for more space if needed. The windows and the driver seat is powered. There is no CD or cassette player, but there is Bluetooth connectivity which I use to play my music playlist or talk on the phone so it will be handsfree. It also has satellite radio, but I don't use it. The steering wheel can be adjusted for height purposes.

- Dee C

Classic, comfortable, and timeless.

I love the shape of my 2011 ford escape. A lot of the newer models are more rounded like all other makes are trending toward. I love my heated seats which is helpful when driving long distances and my back starts to hurt. The interior has black leather, carpet, and dash. It has all kept very nice for having this vehicle for nearly 8 years. I love having the Bluetooth feature so that I can play my phone over the speakers.

- Morgan E

Red exterior tan interior Love that you can fold down the back seats if you need to haul something big

This crossover is amazing! It handles amazing in the snow. The gas mileage is amazing! It fits 4 people comfortably. Had this escape for almost 5 years now and haven't had any big problems to fix. The only thing two years ago had to recharge the ac. Other then that this vehicle is amazing! I love the controls on the steering wheel for the radio can turn up volume change track makes it super safe use! Highly recommend.

- Krystina J

Escape: Worth every penny, and every little problem

My Key came on somehow and it's bothersome, I can't get it to shut off. I love the bluetooth accept, as well as the features on the steering wheel. I've never had AC because I was told that the vehicle "has more holes than swiss cheese" so that sucks, but driving such a well build, sturdy vehicle gives me piece of mind in the winter when the roads are bad and it has enough space inside for my family and our large dog.

- Jess L

Great solid car. Never had a problem. We love that we can flat tow the vehicle.

We have not had any problems with this vehicle. Performance is good, but think the gas mileage needs improvement. Our vehicle is a fairly basic model, therefore, not necessarily the most comfortable and does not have many extra features. The feature we have work great. The car has been very reliable. We are currently using it as a tow vehicle behind our rv as well. The tow bar and plate was easy to install.

- Corinne C

Sleek, affordable, heavy-duty 2011 Ford Escape.

My Ford Escape was one of the best purchases I have ever made. I have driven 15, 000 miles since I bought my car last year, and have yet to experience any issues with the way it runs. The interior is sleek and comfortable, and it has all the features I want- AUX port, moonroof, automatic windows and locks. The only thing I would do is lengthen the back by a few inches so that I could fit more in the trunk.

- Meadow P

Dealership Picks Up Where Manufacturer Failed.

It's been a reliable and comfortable form of transportation. Good gas mileage. I keep maintenance up-to-date. The only real issue I had was with the AC system. A descant bag deteriorated and spread throughout the system causing major issues. It was repaired, then the following spring the same issue happened again. Ford Motor Company would not pay for defect and repair, however the local dealership did.

- Carmen E

The great Ford Escape with amazing features.

I really like the way my car drives. It is really smooth and has nice comfortable seating with a great stereo system and other features. I wish my car had a sunroof but there’s other things that I wanted more in a car like seats that fold down and a lot of storage compartments. I have only had an issue with my air conditioning buttons and I have to get the breaks checked because they get squeaky.

- Courtney P

I would buy another ford escape for sure.

I really love my escape. It is the right size for the 3 of us and a dog. I wish it had leather, sunroof and a v6. If you have to pull out into traffic it is a little slow. I also like the ones that have the crime grill and brush guard/front bumper. They look so fancy. The windows seem to leak a little. We have to keep replacing my speakers because they get wet. I would buy another escape for sure.

- Sandy B

Great gas mileage & nice ride.

When in the market for a new car, my daughter suggested an escape. Never really paid that much attention to them. Was driving an impala, which we loved at the time of getting the escape. This particular car only had less than 7,000 & was a year old. Drove it & loved. Take our 3 grandchildren on a lot of adventures & love the roominess of it. Get great gas mileage & love the hatch.

- Kelly M

An amazing vehicle that is excellent on gas.

Overall it is a decent vehicle. It handles well. It does lack get up and go. Not sure if this is because it is a 4 cylinder. It is daily comfortable and seats 5, 4 comfortably. It is very reliable and great on gas. The fully loaded model is the best. The stereo has great sound. Wish it had Bluetooth capability. The interior is nice and having fold down back seats helps for carrying larger items.

- Mary L

2011 Ford Escape - above and beyond family vehicle.

I bought this car used and it has been a very reliable vehicle so far. Gas mileage is great considering it is an SUV and has the option for eco-gas which improves gas mileage immensely if used. The vehicle is very comfortable with sport style, breathable cloth seats - which is perfect for hot or cold weather. It is very spacious and makes for a very functional and comfortable family vehicle.

- Anna S

Overall good, with some issues

My car drives fairly smoothly, but can be a bit loud due to the fact that the muffler had to be replaced. I haven't had too many issues and I've had my car for over 7 years. It's a small sized SUV with four wheel drive. It has decent gas mileage. I did have issues with the hinges eroding on the glass liftgate, which I have read is a common problem, and rust on the trunk door.

- Barb D

Ford Escape, fun to drive.

I love this vehicle. It is comfortable, gas mileage is fantastic and it is really fun to drive. I also love that fact that I have been able to put my cell phone in through Microsoft and can answer while driving. Sound system is also very good. The only problem is that it does have a few blind spots that take a bit to figure out, but the side mirrors with the small mirror do help.

- Mary G

A wonderful small, yet spacious vehicle!

My Ford Escape has been very reliable over the past 2 1/2 years. I love the interior and the overall look of the car. One thing that I appreciate is how compact the car is yet there's so much space for storage, car seats, etc. It gets very good gas mileage and has some really great features like, the Bluetooth handsfree calling options, electric seats, and Sirius XM radio.

- Raven L

It is easy to maneuver and has no blind spots.. It has plenty of space to haul stuff and is very comfortable

The best thing about my vehicle is that it was the last year that the car was squared off in shape so the rear window is larger than the new cars. You have a great view and very little blind spots. It is shorter so you can maneuver it anywhere. The only complaint is the section between the seats has a solid compartment so you can't really store like a purse or that.

- Michelle K

2011 ford escape review quality.

My vehicle has beautiful and comfy interior and drives smoothly. I love the quality of not only the drive but also the motors. Beautiful machine I look forward to getting in the future.

- Tyler P

Ford Escape is the perfect size.

I really like my Ford Escape. It is a nice size - large enough since it is a small SUV, but small enough to be easy to park, etc. If I could change one thing I would change the interior to a lighter color so it would not show dust so easily and would not heat up as much in the summer. Otherwise I love the leather interior and the heated seats are great in the winter.

- Danielle O

They parts and labor are expensive.

My vehicle is very reliable. It is easy to maintain. I have only had a few problems with it since I bought it used. The main thing was the air conditioner wouldn't work and I had to get a very expensive part replaced. The part and the labor was over 900. 00 which I was very unhappy about. The dealership only gave me a 6 month warranty bring I bought it used.

- Linda S

Safe and effective- has good safety features.

I have found for me it is reliable. I like the size, mileage and how it does not require much gas. It has good performance and when I need to speed up there is no problem. It has good safety features. In the years that I have had this vehicle I haven't experience any problems at all. If I would purchase another vehicle it would be the same kind.

- Betty G

I love how much room there is in it.

Everything seems to be going great. I love the size. It is very comfortable. Not too big like a truck but not too small. I have had it a few months now and I am pretty in love with it. There is not anything would say is a problem or that I do not like about it. The price was very reasonable for it as well and as a first car it is doing great.

- Sky K

My Ford Escape combines reliability, comfort and performance.

For an SUV, the gas mileage is not as bad as I thought it would be. It is extremely comfortable to drive and has a sunroof and lots of storage space in the trunk area. I recently added an aftermarket backup camera because it was difficult to see people while I was backing up. It has strong acceleration and just turned over 100,000 miles.

- Rio G

Convenient options for any driver.

My vehicle performs amazingly! I love the convenience of having a rear camera. Having the option of heated seats is extremely convenient given the cold climate I live in. One of my favorite features of my vehicle includes the Bluetooth option. I am able to communicate with friends and family safely while keeping my attention on the road.

- Brittany B

JD is most concerned in riding in comfort and this is her top requirement when seeking her next vehicle!

I like that it's tall and comfortable. I don't like that it is getting old and I need to trade it it within the next few months. I also don't like that with each year, the Ford Escape models keep getting smaller. I am not certain if I will get another Escape because of that fact. I may get an F150 instead because I like to sit up high!

- JD B

Great vehicle. Great on fuel economy.

It is fuel efficient. It is great for my 3 year old daughter to climb in and out of. I do wish it had a DVD player built in. I also wish that it had a larger cargo space in the back, it is great for getting groceries and such, but after you put a few large items like a stroller in the back. . . There's not much room for much more.

- Melissa E

The engine gets loud in the winter before it fully heats up.

Sometimes the engine vibrates really loudly and it makes the car vibrate. The speakers go in and out when it gets cold, as in the sounds fades in and out. The back window glass does not always go up when I try to open it, and when it does decide to go up it takes a hot minute. Other than those minor issues it is a great vehicle.

- Cat L

It drives great and is dependable.

I wish it was a different color. I love the way it drives. It is the perfect size for me. It is easy to operate. I have plenty of room for passengers. I like that it is a hatchback. It is easy to get groceries in and out of. It rides very smooth. I am able to get around in all kinds of weather. My car gets great gas mileage.

- Jill R

Dependable, hard working truck that never let's me down.

My ford escape gas really handled well. Very few repairs have had to be done. I have gone off-road with it, come rain, sleet,or snow it has outperformed some of my closest friends newer cars. On a scale of 1-10 I give my ford escape a 9. Ford was really knowing how to put together a solid SUV. Thank you and have a great day.

- John Walter C

USA-made hybrid SUV carries a lot and gets good mileage

I love that it's an SUV that isn't too big, but it's big enough that I can carry a lot of stuff in it. People are always surprised what I can fit in it (as opposed to a RAV4 or a CRV). And it's a hybrid, so it gets gets good mileage. The only thing I don't care for is SYNC, but I have to remember that it's 2011 technology.

- John M

It's a safe car. It's my second Escape. I trust it to get me from point A to point B without any problems.

This car is great for little driving trips. It is big enough to comfortably sit four people. We have had to get some repairs the last few years, though I suspect that may have been more due to my driving than the makeup of the car. It really is a reliable car. The biggest downside I can think of is the rust on the bottom.

- Keely R

Best Ford I ever owned. No problems. Handles great. Reliable.

Over 123, 000 miles and only problem was interior light that went out in first year or so but I was over on mileage for warranty. Handles great in the snow. My family loved it so much that now my daughter and son-in-law drive new ones. I trusted my new driver granddaughter in it because I knew it handled well in the snow.

- Jacqueline B

It is no longer manufactured.

I love the space inside the vehicle as well as the space under the hood. It's great for exploring because I have room for my dogs. The thing I dislike about my car is the Freon went out, but that's just a thing that happens, I guess. Nothing drastically wrong there. It has decent gas mileage, it could be a little better.

- Hayley K

It's an all around great car for small families.

I love how many miles to the gallon I get, the height of the car makes it easy to get in and out of with back and knee issues I have. I don't like that just myself and my 2 kids who are 9 and 4 fit, adding my mother in for a trip of shopping surely cramps the car I'd like more room but over all do really enjoy my Escape.

- Deborah C

Fun to drive & fuel efficient.

The Escape is fun to drive. It has good fuel efficiency. There's usually plenty of room to move lots of stuff when you need to. The back seats fold down to give you even more room when needed. The biggest problem I have is when someone who is tall, over 6 ft, needs to sit in the backseat. It can be a bit snug for them.

- Lydia M

I have a white Ford Escape. It has a sunroof which I greatly enjoy.

I really enjoy my car! I find it extremely reliable and would highly consider buying another newer version of it when it is time for me to look for a new car. I find it very comfortable, the only downside is that my seats stain extremely easy. Another feature that I really enjoy is the fact that it has all wheel drive.

- Melissa U

Dependable Escape with good maintenance and long lasting body frame.

I love my Ford Escape! We've had it through 3 kids and it is still going strong. The only issue we have is with the hatch mechanism. We've always kept it serviced and in good condition. Always reliable and comfortable! Though we've bought another vehicle that is bigger we still get quite a bit of use out of our Escape.

- J K

It is a very dependable vehicle and will last for quite a while.

I like the fact that in an SUV you sit higher and I feel have a better view of the road. It has been a very dependable vehicle, still rides very nicely even though it is older and has over 120,000 miles on it. It is starting to show a little bit of rust by the hatch but other than that the body is in great condition.

- Ruth R

Great car for overall use!

Great comfortable vehicle that I can live in and go places with. I can take friends or if I am alone, my bike fits in the back. The only drawback is I have some translation/ accelerator belt issues from time to time which means I'll hear a rattling or rumbling along with some squealing when I am hitting the gas pedal.

- Emilie R

It has really great trunk space. The rear seats fold completely flat. It's perfect for traveling with my dogs.

The windshield cleaner broke shortly after I bought it. The same thing happened on the 2004 Ford Taurus I owned before it, so that's an annoying recurring issue. Also, the seat belt doesn't retract properly when I take it off, so it often gets caught in my door frame. Again, this same issue happened with my old for.

- Adele S

Just the right size SUV for comfortable driving.

I enjoy the size of my Ford Escape. I like having an SUV but the Escape is not too big but still has the room I like in an SUV. I am not sure the exact miles per gallon but it is reasonable. I take a number of trips per year and have always had a comfortable ride and also feel that I am safe driving long distances.

- Denise C

The decline feature is a button on the gear shift which select the lower gear.

Overall I have had a fairly positive experience with my Ford Escape. It runs well and falls moderately in the fuel efficiency scale. The only issue I have had with it was not due to the manufacturing but due to a mechanics error. Living in the mountains I really appreciate in decline feature for easy down shifting.

- Hannah K

2011 Ford Escape, the fun 4-banger.

This car is very reliable, I have no issues with it so far and I am at 137, 000 miles. It is very comfortable inside can easily fit 3 people comfortably in the back. The "trunk" is great if you have dogs that you do not want on your seats. Throw up a gate and voila, no more dogs on the seat. It performs very well.

- Steph L

Reliable Older Escape would recommend

I have no complaints other than it's age. A newer car has nicer features. What I wish it had is vents in the back for the people sitting in the back. The newer Escapes are nice but I likely won't get one due to the odd curved construction of the dashboard. The car has been super reliable for me otherwise.

- Allison W

Happy ford escape owners for the past 5 years.

Most reliable car we've owned. Quick acceleration & good fuel performance. I received good service from our local dealership. I had no major repairs in four years. When it is time to replace I intend to start looking at a ford. I have recommended the escape to others. All in all, just a great small SUV.

- Phil A

Excellent choice for everyday use. Has just enough technology that is useful and not just fluff.

Bought it used, Have not had any problems other than replacing the tires and the usual oil changes. It is our everyday car used for all of normal errands. Good mileage and pick-up. More than enough space in the back with and without the back seats folded down. Intend to keep the car for several more years.

- paul k

The Escape is a perfect family vehicle and we feel very safe in this SUV!!

I love my Ford escape! For a family of four and two kids in many sports it is the perfect size!! All leather seats is great with kids because it makes for easy clean up! It is also a very smooth ride! There has been very little maintenance needed in it as well as having over 125, 000 miles it runs great!!

- Desire E

Overall reliable and good family car. Powerful to drive. Has feel of a truck.

Recall with turbo in engine. Bought from CarMax. Problems with power windows. Overall it is a good SUV. Performance is sluggish in acceleration. Kids have good space to sit in back. Plenty of space for groceries or moving. Enjoy the sunroof and surround sound radio, heated seats and overall safety of SUV.

- Vanessa B

That it's fun to drive and very versatile. The cargo room is awesome and it has been a comfortable vehicle for me and my family.

I love the space for cargo, and that the seats fold down. I love that it has four wheel drive. It is easy to park and just the right size for me and my needs. It's red and I love the color too. There really isn't anything to complain about. If it did get a little better mileage that would be great!

- Jen B

Love my ford escape. It is safe and great on winter roads!!

It is very reliable. I haven't had any issues. I have changed the tires and brakes. I keep up with oil changes. It is very good in winter weather!! It is very comfortable and roomy inside. I think it will be the last vehicle I ever buy. It is an SUV, but has a 4 cylinder engine. The gas mileage is good.

- Sandy R

Comfy ride. Very good CUV.

It is a very comfortable vehicle to drive. I enjoy my vehicle very much. Gas mileage is fair and does well on the highway. Ample storage and carrying capacity especially when type rear seats are folded down. Rear seat leg and head room is good for an average person. Overall a very enjoyable car to own.

It has been incredibly low maintenance despite having over 120,000 miles on it now!

I love that if I can get into my vehicle with a code/keypad if I don't have my keys. I also love the rear view camera. I like the leather seats, and that the blind spots aren't terrible. I dislike how small it is and that I can't easily listen to music through the USB (you have to actually say "USB").

- Julia G

Ford escape: a very reliable vehicle.

Very reliable vehicle. No real problems with it except driver's side mirror was cracked when purchased. Great to drive in the winter. Able to pull a boat or other vehicle with a hitch on it. Great gas mileage, roomy back seat. As long as you keep up with the maintaining it, this will last a long time.

- Megan K

It has a back up cam, it is flex fuel.

I enjoy the durability of my car. It has roughly 168k miles on it and it drives almost flawlessly. I also like that is has flex fuel. I can fill up on much cheaper gas. It is also affordable. The only issue I have with Ford in general is their ac tends to flake out a lot which is an expensive repair.

- Jamie H

2011 Ford Escape honest review.

Terrible rust issue on rear fenders and the under chassis. The rear hatch over the years becomes harder to open. Other than that the car has been very reliable. It sits 4 comfortably with a 5th being squeezed in the middle. This car does not come with too many features that people are used to today.

- Bailey G

Perfect family car! Nice clean lines. Great for living in the city.

I love they style of the car as I prefer and more clean line shape. It is comfortable and has always driven well. I would definitely get another one. I have really had no problems with it since we got it beside the usual maintenance. My kids love that you can change the he lighting of the interior.

- Stephanie G

Very reliable car with few minor issues.

Have had to replace the wheel bearing many times. I have had quite a few starting problems as well. All together it is a very reliable car. Has a lot of room and the all wheel drive is wonderful. It drives very nicely and the suspension is great. Very good car and I would consider buying another.

- Nicole R

Family of four drives fords.

Our family of 4 is outgrowing this car. The fuel light continuously come on even after having it reset. We have tried everything the manual instructions tell you to do, also has been to the dealership for the issue. Otherwise it has been a good car for the last four years that we have owned it.

- Lisa F

Best car for small families.

It is very reliable and have had not issues with the car. Low maintenance to maintain and run very smooth. Good family car if you do not have a big family. Will definitely be a good starter car for a small family of four or less. It is also low it cost for gas, so no need to fill up constantly.

- April C

Reliable, versatile compact SUV.

Haven't had any major problems in the past 8 years. Tan leather seats, sunroof. Love the seat warmers. Holds a lot, especially for a small SUV, I have used it to move multiple times. Works pretty well in snow and ice with all season tires. Can play music through CD, aux, Bluetooth, or USB port.

- Kristin V

It is a great family vehicle.

Provides plenty of passenger and cargo space; gets above average gas mileage; no major repairs or replacements, just regular routine maintenance; attractive packages available, including leather interior, moonroof, and electric; maintenance locations are plentiful and conveniently located;

- Allison T

Reliable Ford Escape family vehicle.

The Ford Escape is a compact SUV. It is easy to drive with average gas mileage for a SUV. I do not have many mechanical problems with this vehicle. It gets me from a to b. I have over 77, 000 miles on it and it still runs great. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone with a small family.

- Stacy F

It is a great size and easy. One feature is the keyless lock code on the door.

It is a good size and moderately priced. I dislike most the noise - it is very loud and has a slow starting speed. The repairs have been seldom but when they did occur were relatively expensive. The ac broke 4x in one year but I think part of that was attributed to a shady Ford dealership.

- Ann B

2011 Ford Escape is a great SUV!

When I am in traffic and it is stop and go, there are times my SUV will have a "hiccup" when I accelerate and it feels like it is going to stall. I just recently had an oil change so I do not feel like that is the issue. Unfortunately, I do not have money right now to get this checked out.

- Heather N

Versatile SUV with room to spare.

Easy to get in and out of. Large cargo space, seats 5, handles more like a car than a truck. Love the backup camera. Heated seats a plus. Do not use the sunroof much as you can be blinded while driving. It also had a leak. Controls are great and information displayed better than usual.

- Frank D

It is not a minivan nor a mom mobile. I traded in the minivan to get this. It is sporty.

I love the look of my escape. It is an older model, before they changed it. It is a bit "boxy" and that's what I like. Current SUVs are too sleek and aerodynamic. I think they look like squashed down minivans. I dislike that if I replace this vehicle, I'll need to go with one of those.

- Kris W

My 2011 Ford Escape is just right for me. If you love to travel, you love it!

I love my vehicle. With an oil change and a full tank of gas you can conquer the world. I drove cross country from Michigan to New Orleans, Louisiana with no problems! The visual and audio alerts are very helpful. Car rides very smoothly. If you love to travel this is the car for you.

- Adrian W

Comfort, quality and performance.

Very reliable car with minimal repairs needed. With the v6 engine it gets around 24 miles/gallon driving mostly highway. The limited has all features you would want including heated seats, park assist, backup camera, Sirius satellite/navigation. Rides comfortably and drives great.

- Amanda N

Reliable. Great looking and nice body style.

The car is reliable, comfortable, and fun to drive. I feel as if I can go anywhere in it in any type of weather or conditions. I would recommend this car to anyone needing a small SUV. It is great for me because I am not very tall, but my 6 foot nephews are able to drive it too.

- Marsha M

Review of 2011 white Ford Escape.

Bad gas mileage, expensive repairs, air conditioning unit is just okay, car drives well, gets some mechanical issues. Comfortable seats, roomy, good speakers, good value for the price, easy to clean, headlights work well. Wish it had more electronic features and back up camera.

- Cory K

Very safe and roomy for a smaller SUV.

I have never had any issues. The reliability and performance have always been great. Comfort is great, it has enough room for my entire family. We're not cramped in the car and have just enough space. It is a very safe vehicle to own. It is great on gas and has lasted me years.

- Maria E

My 2011 Ford Escape is a great deal for the price!

My SUV is great on gas mileage has room for 5 people comfortable. I do not love the stereo system and the ride is a little rough and noisy. The cloth reclining seats are comfortable and the back is just right for groceries hauling stuff to the beach my craft show supplies, etc.

- Sharon J

Review of Ford Escape performance and function.

My vehicle gets good mileage, good control, dry and wet roads. Plenty of power and easy driving in big city, and on highway passing. No problems just routine maintenance. Is very roomy with good back seat room. Easy maintenance. Very nice vehicle and definitely would be again.

- Danny B

I have not idea what to put in this block.

My Escape has a great body style. It gets good gas mileage. Is a comfortable ride. Has sync for hands free communication. Siriusxm available. Have not had any major problems with it except some ac problems and it has over 100, 00 miles on it. I plan on owning it until it dies.

- Valerie L

Great gas mileage. Has a lot of room for shopping.

Sits higher so I am able to see better. It is very comfortable. I get good gas mileage for a larger car. The only thing I do not like is it has a lot of rattles. Back seats fold down so it is like having a small pickup truck. This car is very reliable, never had any problems.

- Pat T

Great and reliable midsize car with minor inconveniences

I love the size and how it handles. The visibility is pretty good for a crossover. My main complaint is the audio/line in/Bluetooth system. It is so buggy and unreliable. On multiple occasions I have felt like I was driving unsafely due to simply trying to make my music work

- Kristen H

Great vehicle for a family.

Great for a family of 4. Plenty of room. Decent fuel mileage, not the best acceleration. Haven't had any mechanical issues. Drives great in the rain and the snow. The fuel flex option seems to help with gas mileage. Only negative would be not the best SUV to haul a trailer.

- Jeremy H

For a basic, small suv type car, it really fits the bill. It isn't fancy and doesn't have extras, but it is reliable.

I like the size, it's good for a family of four with two kids. I also like that there is room for us to put a lot of things in the car, as well as the ability to attach a trailer if needed. I do wish it had a few more features, like some sort of indicator when backing up.

- Sarah E

Great mileage for a highway driver!

Gets great gas mileage while driving on the highway! Does well in the snow when roads are icy. Nice interior that is comfortable and flexible for carrying larger items. Affordable to fill with gas as I fill up at least once a week. Overall a nice and affordable SUV option.

- Kirsten B

Zippy fun cute SUV. Gives other a run for their money.

I love the square doors as they make entry and egress easy. The fuel economy is great at about 24 mpg. Console is roomy for storing all your stuff out of sight. With seats folded down you have 3' from the back door to seat front for cargo or you have seating for 4 adults.

- Pam M

I appreciate the attractiveness of the vehicle.

My vehicle has 60k miles on it and has only required basic maintenance (oil change, tire rotation). It rides comfortably, gets great gas mileage, and is incredibly reliable. I have 2 small children (ages 5 and 7) and it fits all of us very comfortably with room to spare!

- Lauren C

Great car love everything about it.

Easy to drive and very comfortable. Sits high and makes me feel safe. I get good gas mileage for a car that size, love the way back seat goes down and makes room for anything, very little maintenance. Has a good leg space. Easy to clean windows. Easy to get in and out.

- Pat C

My vehicle is a Ford Escape and I love it most of the time.

My vehicle has had many callback issues in the past. These were not covered by ford, however, because it was not listed under the callback but was from the same factory and had the same issue listed under the callback. It was a hassle to fix and a pretty penny as well.

- Chelsea R

Does not handle salt well.

My Ford Escape driving door will not close anymore and my exhaust fell out recently. What I do about it is I like having a sunroof and a lot of space. But it does not handle New York winters very well. My tires do not seem to last very long either along with my brakes.

- Mackenzie B

On the go lifestyle expectations exceeded

Two wheel drive makes driving conditions in the snow much more challenging than other others. Heated seats, Bluetooth audio, USB port, and hands free really meets the demands of an on the go lifestyle. Drives well overall, and I've never had any major repairs needed.

- Tyler J

It is reliable and practical.

No major problems up to this point and it is almost 8 years old. Keeping up with regular maintenance helps. Gets good gas mileage for a larger car. Plenty of room for passengers and cargo. Great support from Ford for maintenance. Easy to find locations. Nice ride.

- Brenda T

2011 Ford Escape is a wonderful vehicle!

I love the reliability of this car and it has wonderful features such as seat warmers. It is quite comfortable for me. I love that it has a lot of room to put things in the back behind the seats and even more room to transport stuff if you put the back seats down.

- Suzanne W

Cool, clean, nice looking. Dependable and great on gas.

The Ford Escape, very comfortable, clean leather seats, great speed, it is not loud. You can barely hear that it is on. Dependable, sporty. Look like a Jeep. Has a good feel. I love it. Etc., great SUV's. Great for fishing, moving things or picking up bulk items.

- Linda H

Economical and comfortable!

My Escape is great. It drives smooth and comfortable. Great gas mileage! More than enough room for any cargo. Back seats go down for more room also. The front seats are very roomy. The dashboard is all digital and very clear to read. I highly recommend this car.

- Jean M

Made in the USA, affordable and reliable.

My vehicle is extremely reliable and comfortable to drive. The v6 engine makes it so I never have to worry about pulling into traffic or dealing with the constant changing weather in my state. When my vehicle needs routine mechanical work it does not cost a lot.

- Alicia R

Perfect family vehicle for a busy mom of two.

I love my car. I have had no issues with it since I purchased it 2 years ago. I love that it is roomy enough for my 2 children, but is not so big that it is hard to drive. In addition there is also plenty of room for cargo in the back and it is very accessible.

- Corey M

My Ford Escape is a nice sized comfortable vehicle that meets my daily needs.

This is a good vehicle. It is reliable so far and it is 7 years old. It is comfortable and rides nice. It is easy to maneuver because it is not too big but also big enough for all my needs. I haven't had any mechanical problems so far and it is average on gas.

- Rose J

Great car for a family: Ford Escape.

I have cloth seats, built-in XM radio, she drives well, has an excellent latch system which is good for when I have babies or just for when I am babysitting. The actuator now only rarely works but I currently do not have the money to fix. It's all wheel drive.

- Bree R

My mom’s Escape did not have AWD. She quickly switched to an AWD vehicle.

Needs bucket seats but overall comfortable. You should always gets an SUV with all wheel drive. The gas mileage is great and it has the option to use e85 fuel. I can put two kids in the car comfortably but when I have a third I will have to get a new vehicle.

- Margaret D

2011 Ford escape comments.

I have had no problems with this vehicle. I was reluctant at first because it is a Ford but it has been very reliable. It is a flex fuel model and can use 2 different kinds of fuel. To me it is just a means of transportation to get from one place to another.

- Paul D

Perfect SUV for a road trip to the beach!

Good on gas, best feature is automatic headlights, seats are comfortable, cargo area is small. , no room for hauling large items , back seats lay down so a bike can fit. Overall good small SUV, perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids for a 6 hour trip to the beach.

- Lisa E

My funky Ford escape: my young adult dream car.

Its pretty spacious, the back seats lay flat, and there's a great sound system. There is plenty of storage in the car and it still looks modern, the car aged pretty well. The Bluetooth connection is nice when it works and the back up camera is a lifesaver.

- Madison M

Family vehicle nice compact crossover vehicle.

It is a compact SUV. Perfect for a family of four. The fuel economy is average for a SUV. It is easy to drive and a nice size trunk space. The interior is a light colored fabric. If you are looking for a good family vehicle then this one is a good choice.

- Stacy F

I think one of the most important things people need to know about my car is it does get me where I need to go.

I dislike a lot of things about my car. Although it does run and get me where I need to go, it has taken a lot of maintenance. If I could buy another car I would in a heartbeat. I did buy my car used so that may be part of the reason I have to upkeep it.

- Morgan A

I love the Ford Escape. I recommend it to any one.

I love the Ford Escape the leg room is awesome. The 4 cylinder motor gets great mpg on the highway. I haven't had any problems with the Escape at all. I have 123000 on it. The all wheel drive is awesome. The back seats lay down to haul what you need to.

- Donald L

The ford escape is great! Relaxing easy drive!

I absolutely love my escape. It drives great. It has lots of room for the kids dogs luggage. For trips. I.Haven't has any issues with needing repairs.. Overall very happy with it. Definitely would get another one if I was to upgrade to a newer vehicle.

- Nicki R

Roomy backseat. Fits up to 2 car seats but little room for a 3rd adult.

We bought our Escape 5 years ago because we needed more room than our mustang provided. But now with our second son, there's barely any room for an adult sized person. Would not recommend for growing families. Great for couples who like to go camping.

- Tina O

My Escape not a mustang but that is ok for now.

It is a really comfortable car., not real peppy but that is ok. I like the visibility and easy access. Reasonably priced and I always go with Ford products. It has a lot of room yet is not a large car. Of course I think it is very attractive looking.

- Karen C

Great small SUV - has all the features.

I love my car. It has many amenities (sunroof, backup sensor, heated seats Bluetooth, can store CDs in the stereo). It handles well, is great on gas (and I do a lot of driving). It is still in great condition, no major problems and it is 7 years old.

- Alicia H

Good reliable car small. But it will be there ready to go whenever you are.

I am a tall guy and it is a small car. I would have liked it to be bigger but my wife liked it so she bought it. I is very reliable starts every time I would prefer more leg room. The features are navigation system CD player and speakers are great.

- George T

My car has been super reliable and perfect size for being a soccer family and traveling for many games and tournaments.

It was exactly what I was looking for at the time. Color- Blue! I have a sunroof which was a bonus for me, didn't care one way or the other. It has performed well over 7 years. The one thing I don't like is that the seats are hot if you're hot.

- Kerri R

The car is good on gas. The most part is to keep it service to avoid future problems.

My ford is fully loaded. Including dvd players in the head rest. However the dvd players are not working at this time. It has a blown fuse. Also the low tire pressure light is on and you have to train your wheels to get it tog go off. i

- Susan s

That you can't load the back completely because you have to keep the vent clear

I love the way it handles like a smaller vehicle but is still large enough to hold my family. I don't like the hybrid as much as I thought, it doesn't save that much in gas and pickup especially through the mountains isn't as good as I would want

- Thayer M

Wish it was available as 4 wheel drive.

Had small receptacle for towing. Bar. Low towing capability. No bracket for wiring adaptor. Handles well on corners. Comfortable driving position. Have to move passenger cushions to lay back down flat. Controls on steering wheel are easy to use.

- Sarah L

It is a great medium sized SUV, would be a great 1st car for a teenager.

I love the size of my escape. It is large enough to haul things if needed but not too big to park or use a lot of gas. I also like how easy the back seats are to fold down when needed. I wish it had rear vents for passengers in the back seat.

- Christine B

Not reliable after a few years of use. Early on good car but if you plan on having it for awhile beware

Car has really started having more and more issues as time passes, things from the lift gate being the only thing that can open because the back trunk door latch stopped working to accept going out and more. This is all within past 6 mo ghs

- Chris g

Fun to drive. Can see very well out if it.

It is fun to drive. I am short and it has a driver seat that rises up and down as well as backward and forward. The sound system this very good. It is comfortable even in the backseat. The moon roof has given us a lot of entertainment.

- Ella W

It is well made and reliable.

I like the reliability, the style, the sound system, the handling & balance. I think the mileage could be improved. The seats are not as comfortable as I would like for longer drives. I do not like the fact that the AC died early on.

- David M

It runs great and is a perfect family car that has plenty of space.

My car has been very reliable since day 1. I have not had any problems with it so far. It has failed to start twice but was fixed with a simple jump start. I just reached 100, 000 miles and got it serviced and it was working great!

- Alyssa O

Comfortable and gas mileage is great for an older SUV.

I love this vehicle. It drives nice and is always reliable. While I've had a couple problems with it, they were fixed easily and covered under warranty. The trunk is huge and with the seats folded down, you can fit a ton of stuff.

- Jenna M

Good on gas and it drives and handles great. I love it.

I love my small suv because it is roomy enough for lot's of things we do. It is great for road trips, and sits high enough. It gets good gas mileage. I have the back seats down so I can put my husbands transport chair in the back.

- Martha C

the four wheel drive kicks on automatically. There's no switch to place on.

I love that it has automatic 4 wheel drive. There's nothing I need to turn on. I love that it's all black and has great speakers. There's also a keyless entry pad which I love so I; never have to worry about locking my keys inside

- val w

Comfortable for long trips, great mileage and good for shopping trips and working out of.

Interior color is not good,shows dirt, scratches, whoever is responsible for the plastic design and carpet color has not ever cleaned, detailed a car! Plastic wears off color. Windows scratches easily when dirt is trapped inside.

- Julia J

It has great storage space for a vehicle of Its size.

I like the size and amount of cargo space. Unfortunately we have had a lot of problems with it that are known Ford problems. We bought it used with a fair amount of miles on it and I likely would not make that decision again.

- Renee M

I love it. Enough tech but not overpowering.

Even though it is not a huge SUV it feels roomy when driving. I love the mpg yet still having the get up and go. Even though it feels big it is not and it sits low to the ground so I have trouble seeing more than 3 cars ahead.

- Abigail H

that it is roomy inside and that it does not cause me any big engine problems

I like to convenience of the vehicle that I can put large items in the back if need be but I don't like that I have to climb up into the driver's seat I prefer being able to drop down into the seat as I would in a smaller car

- jane r

That all in all it's been a good car and I would recommend it.

Runs well and handles well. Good but not great gas mileage. Mechanically sound but has had throttle body issues in the past which was a chronic problem for that model. Some Escapes from 2008 through 2012 have had A/C issues.

- Shelton F

It's the perfect medium of all the features that are important to having a city vehicle.

I love that it is small enough to fit in almost any city street parking. Spot but feels big when driving and has lots of space to pack stuff. I also love that I was able to get features like navigation and leather interior.

- Chris K

Ford Escape 2011: great vehicle!

Love my Escape! Reliable and comfortable for long family road trips or everyday driving. Love the trunk space and that the seats lay down to make more room for lots of packing. Does well in all weather and all terrain.

- Andrea D

It gets me where I need to go and need to be. I would just prefer something that doesn't have as many problems.

I like that it is a SUV. However, I do not like the Ford. The air conditioning has had to be fixed several times and still doesn't work all the time. Had much better vehicle when I had Honda. Just my personal opinion.

- Sherry C

It's reliable if you take care of it. Has a good interior room. Was a good price for the size of the vehicle

It's a good size, good in the snow and rain. The quality of the interior is not great over the long-term. And it had a couple of mechanical issues that I think shouldn't have happened - they're a result of the design.

- Kay H

It's great at handling bumpy roads.

I like that it has a sunroof. It sits up higher off the so I can see everything. It feels extremely safe, has comfortable seats and I like that the horn is a nice decibel level so people take me seriously when I honk.

- Allison D

It's very dependable and capable of hauling a big load. It has enough room for basic needs. It's rugged and can handle different types of road conditions.

I dislike the size. I wish it were as big as the Ford Expedition XL. Overall, I like the smoothness of it while driving and all of the features. The color is great (gray). It's considered a small truck which fits me.

- Debrina A

It will end up costing you more in maintenance than similar vehicles.

I like the shape of my vehicle, lots of internal space. I think it's fun to drive and has an excellent turn radius. I don't like that there have been multiple recalls on it and that maintenance is an ongoing issue.

- Rb S

these vehicles are notorious for transmissions failing just over 100,000 miles

the V6 engine is a little small for the weight of the car, transmission is clunky at times. interior is comfortable and roomy, I've actually carried prehung doors from hardware stores in it with very little problems.

- randy g

The Escape is family and dog approved for quick errands or weekend getaways!

The Ford Escape is a great compact SUV with many options and great MPH. I downsized from a Tahoe and love that I still have the feel of a SUV. The sunroof is a nice addition. My dog completely approved of his Escape!

- Virginia C

It's a great car! Runs like a champ, has NEVER broken down or left me stranded. And as an added bonus, it gets great mileage!

I love the 2012 or earlier model of the Escape, the square style. It holds more and looks MUCH better than the current year model. Also, i have a hybrid, which is amazing! Love sitting in traffic not using fuel :)

- carol p

It gets good gas mileage.

It is a small vehicle for a family of four. When we go on longer trips, it is a tight squeeze. I feel like I'd like a seven passenger vehicle better, at least when my kids get older and want to take friends places.

- Mickey L

Perfect SUV for single working mom

The size is perfect for this single mom. I can haul groceries as well as large objects. Gas mileage is superb. I love the leather heated seats and the interior is not overly cluttered but enough areas for storage.

- Shawna F

That because it is so small it does not ride well.

I like that my car is great on gas. I like that it's easy to park. I dislike that because it is so small it does not ride well, I feel every bump in the road. Also because it is so small I do not feel safe in it.

- Susan H

This car is great on gas. It light and easy to use.

I like that my car is small and gets good gas mileage. I do not like that it slides easy in the winter. I like that it can hold most of the things I need like the wheelchair. I like that it keeps my feet warm

- Tammy A

It has handsfree Bluetooth for your phone, its all time 4WD, easy maintenance.

I haven't had any problems with my vehicle yet, but I do wish they would make them with more room. I have 2 car seats in the back and it is hard to fit someone in the middle. I love everything else about it.

- Autumn Z

Great family friendly vehicle

This has been the most reliable Ford/vehicle that I've owned. Low maintenance has been needed aside from regular oil changes. I only wish the back seat were bigger and able to fit the three car seats we own.

- Joella E

This is a no-frills vehicle. It is not fancy, but it gets the job done reliably.

I have never had any performance problems with this vehicle, which is one of the most important features to me. It has reasonably priced and infrequent required maintenance. It is a great, reliable vehicle.

- Taylor C

Vehicle is not as spacious as indicated.

The car as a whole is fine, however it is a little too small for my families needs. The third person in the back seat always seems uncomfortable. Also seems to have a lot of recalls and "computer" problems.

- Jessica W

This is a safe and reliable vehicle that seats 5 adults

It's a safe vehicle and has had very few mechanical problems. I love the color and design. I don't care for the cloth interior. It easily seats 5 adults comfortably. It rides well and gets good gas mileage.

- Tiffney K

That it has been reliable with very few issues thus far.

Even though it is a four-cylinder it has get up and go. The seats fold down for extra storage for hauling. For a smaller crossover any smaller engine the gas mileage could be better. Overall very satisfied

- Scott K

It has a very large engine bay so it is easy to work on the car if you enjoy working on cars.

Being a family of three, the Ford Escape is nice to sit up high rather than a sedan. It is roomy and comfy and has ton of space for storage to travel things with. Only complaint would be it's gas mileage

- Alex C

Great car! I'd definitely buy an Escape again in the future.

We have only had to take the Escape in for service once, but we do regular oil changes, etc. The only dislike about our car is the noise. It's a very loud vehicle, always sounds like the windows are down.

- Julia P

Great vehicle for make year.

The air conditioning has broken 3 times in the 6 year that I have owned it. Also, there is an option to purchase satellite radio but there is no touch screen. It does have Bluetooth compatibility though.

- Jackie C

A smaller SUV with nothing special but it has 110,000 miles and runs great.

Had a recall on it a few years back. It wasn't anything major that I can think of. It has no issues and has been a reliable suv for me. The radio is outdated but it does everything I need. A simple suv.

- Ernesto G

Others should know that it rides smoothly.

I like the visibility that the car provides. I like the square shape. I like that it accelerates well despite it being an SUV. I love having the radio and cruise control settings on the steering wheel.

- Ashley B

I travel a lot of highway miles, and It does pretty good on gas.

It's a great vehicle. I have had my Ford Escape now for 4 years with no problems. The back seat is very spacious. I can fit three booster seats back there for my three grandsons. I am not disappointed.

- lorie m

Cannot get this style any longer.

No major problems, it is a four cylinder and has enough power for our driving needs. It would be nice if the interior electronics and features were more current as compared to what is available today.

- Dennis S

It has been very dependable and is comfortable on the long drives I'm so fond of.

I love my Escape! It has been dependable and is very comfortable for long drives. My only dislike is that it seems the windshield is a rock magnet; I've had more chips on this vehicle than any other.

- Ellen B

My car is a 2011 Ford Escape

I personally love my car. It handles nicely, gets good gas mileage for an SUV, and rides smoothly. For anyone who needs the extra room of an SUV, the escape is one of the best options in my opinion.

- Dalton W

It's the perfect size and gets get gas mileage.

My car is a mid size SUV. Runs well, good gas mileage. I've only had it serviced once and that was for a minor problem. It is big enough to haul my college kids back and forth with all their stuff.

- Jane M

It it a very reliable car and I would recommend it to anyone

I have a fully loaded Ford Escape. I love my car because of the leather seats, seat warmers, it can parallel park itself, and the backup camera. I dislike that it has recently had problems starting

- Stephanie L

The most important thing is that the technology features in the car are great

I like the features and the technology in the vehicle and, up until very recently, it has been very reliable. I don't love the color and I would like to have some updated features on the dashboard.

- Charlene S

It gets good gas mileage, is a dependable vehicle and handles great.

The ride is not super smooth and the seats are a little hard. I think a 2012 would improve on these. It has a high step over the edge to get in as well. Gets decent gas mileage tho so that's good!

- Brenda W

Great size and perfect height to get in and out of.

This type of vehicle always need at least all wheel drive. Mine has it and it is the best feature. The vehicle is too light to have the traction needed for rain and snow like the expedition does.

- Margaret D

It gets good gas mileage 32 mpg.

Smooth to drive. Good mileage. Comfortable to drive on long trips. It is a very reliable car that is ways to handle. Love the cruise control. I also like the fact that it has no gas cap to lose.

- Angela Q

Others should know that the Ford escape is an all around good vehicle.

I like that it is a tall SUV. I do not like the 4 cylinder engine, it is not powerful enough. I like the light color interior. I do not like the feeling like it could tip over on tight turns.

- Dee H

Its big enough to put 3 children in the back.great gas mileage. Has great power for a SUV.

I love my Ford Escape. I get good gas mileage for it being a SUV. I bought it brand new with only 36 miles on it. I paid for it at the time i bought it so no payments. There is no complaints.

- Kay H

My car can parallel park itself!

I haven't had any issues with my car. I love that it is a hybrid SUV so I get pretty good gas mileage. Remote start is a definite plus. Park assist is my absolute favorite thing about my car.

- Barbara O

Dependability and great gas mileage. If I can't trust a car to get me where I need to go then I wouldn't want to drive it.

I enjoy the built in bluetooth features as it makes using navigating and listening to content easy. I like how much room the Escape has and how much I can haul in it. Definitely a great car.

- Ryan M

The escape is safe, dependable, durable. It is a great family vehicle

I love my Ford Escape, it handles great in the winter/snow and I feel safe with my kids in it. I did have some transmission issues with low miles (out of warranty) which was frustrating.

- Jennifer W

Lots of room, awesome features like sunroof, heated seats, and navigation.

Like: not too big, decent pick up, easy viewing all around car.... Dislike: seats a bit uncomfortable for long trips, trunk not big enough for family, back seat can't really fit 3 well..

- Ellen D

That it is capable of doing just about everything.

This is our Workhorse vehicle. We use this car for everything. Shopping, transporting our pets, helping family and friends hauling things and stocking up on groceries and bulk shopping.

- Toni K

It's a great car and I would highly recommended it to anyone

Very comfortable inside with a great ride. If I ever have s problem with my car it's easily fixable I'm not paying millions of dollars on specific parts. It's also very reliable on gas.

- Sarah C

Love the way it drives and handles. Family friendly car. Has good space.

Phone doesn't always sync, but could be users fault. Had a few minor issues with cords getting stuck in hatch window causing leaks. Tire pressure gauge comes on driving long distances.

- Jessica W

It may be a smaller car but it holds a lot of stuff in the cargo area.

My car drives smoothly and is dependable. It gets very good gas mileage. We have had it for a few years and have not experienced any problems. I love the color. Red, my favorite color.

- Maggie W

I feel safe in this car and with my children in this car

I like the way it drives - smooth and easy. Great air conditioning. Wish the sync system was a newer version it doesn't work great. Wish it had more storage space now that I have kids

- Jamie K

It drives very smoothly! No problems of concern!

I like that when I drive it; I am higher off of the road than some other smaller cars. I love the extra space. I love that it is an ideal family vehicle. I do not have any complaints.

- Angela D

Still like brand new to me even though it's paid off, seven years old.

We rented an Escape at Disney several years ago, and I knew I wanted one then. Plenty of legroom in the back seat for passengers. Lots of storage/ hauling space in the back. Love it.

- Susanne L

The back seat splits into sections so you can lay down part of the back seat.

The Ford escape is a great smaller SUV. The back row seats can be put down to expand the truck area. It has been a great reliable car with plenty of trunk space for a growing family.

- Amy B

Don't ever buy one because there's so many recalls with Ford products. This is my second escape, and the other one had 10 recalls. I should have known better.

I like that it has a V6 so I can tow a boat. I dislike that Ford has so many recalls, and they never, ever, have recalls Parts in stock. The last recall they had my car for 6 weeks!

- Tina D

It's great year round. It's able to handle all of the snow and mud that Maine can throw at it.

I love being up high and having almost no completely blind spots around me. Seems to get good gas mileage for its size. I don't like how weak the engine feels when I accelerate.

- Tyler B

It's a great size; not too large, not too small. Fairly good gas mileage.

It's a nice size. The seats fold down to accommodate more items when necessary, but has a good amount of space even without doing that. No mechanical issues out of the ordinary.

- Rachel S

That it gets great gas mileage. It does well on highway driving

I like that it is easy to drive. I like that it gets great gas mileage. The only thing I would like to change about it is to be a little bit bigger for my daughter's wheelchair.

- Tammy A

It is a. SUV so it does not get great gas mileage.

It is been a really reliable car. Not too many problems. Glad I bought it. The only thing that annoys me is outside sounds. Wish it was a quieter ride. Fairly comfortable ride.

- Joan R

My Ford Escape is very relaxing to drive.

I love the smooth ride of my Escape. The transmission, engine and interior are in great shape for having close to 100,000 miles on it. I plan on driving it for a long time.

- Josh H

Very inexpensive to operate. Handles great. Back seats fold down, for hauling stuff. very easy to find a dealer for servicing or repairs.

What I like most, is that it has been trouble free! Also has great gas mileage, and is made in the USA..What I dislike most is, it could have a smoother ride. No complaints.

- John C

When It Has A Full Tank Of Gas, It Takes Forever To Be On Empty Again.

I Love My Ford Escape The Only Problem I Feel It Has Is It's A Little Loud When Cranking Up. I Gets Me Where I Need To Be & There's Is Almost Never Anything To Repair For It.

- Shakara F

This car is a great car for someone that needs just a little more space than a sedan.

Great, dependable vehicle. Love the Bluetooth features and dual zone climate. There is a lot of road noise with it and it's a bit on the boring side, but won't let me down.

- Cale S

I have the Escape serviced regularly at the Ford dealer and I have not had any problems with this vehicle.

I love having the hybrid feature, my gas mileage is very good. The escape is easy to maneuver into tight spaces. It is very comfortable, especially when on long road trips.

- Roberta J

The Tight turning radius is very useful when parking and doing u-turns.

Love the sharp turning radius. This SUV is small enough to parallel park but large enough to move larger purchases and help my kids when they move into/out of apartments.

- Helen C

Look out for premature body rust when going to look at this car. These cars are known for it.

My only complaint is that the car is tan, inside and out. The car runs well and the onboard navigation and backup camera are great. I also love the bluetooth connectivity.

- Megan B

it is very roomy, with seats folded down you get quite a bit of loading space

Bought used but has more amenities than I've ever had.Use heated seats much more than I thought I would. Sunroof a disappointment as when it's open the sun can be blinding

- Frank G

It has plenty of legroom and drives very nice. Gas mileage is really good on the Ford Escape.

The Ford Escape is a great car and I am happy we have it. I purchased it used for my daughter to learn to drive because I have a big conversion van and that was too big.

- Kelli H

2011 Ford Escape Crossover

My Ford Escape gets great gas mileage. It is considered a crossover vehicle. You sit up higher than a regular passenger car which makes it easier to see while driving.

- Dominic O

Remaking a good vehicle is better than buying a new one.

It is a reliable vehicle I trust it to get anywhere I had to get it back into working order but once I was able to I am able to drive it just fine without any problems.

- Richard S

Reflects and tractable for my Southwestern urban lifestyle.

Like interior comfort and design for passengers and/or hauling items. Like that it has SUV type. Do not like the the rear seat does not lay flatter than what it does.

- Mark W

beware of the long haul with this vehicle

this car as soon as it hit 100,000 miles started having so many issues, back gate doesn't work, a/c is going out, o2 sensors going bad, just a horrible past few months

- chris g

While the keyless lock code on the door seems very cool, I rarely use it!

I like that it is a good size and had a spacious trunk. I dislike that it is very loud and repairs are expensive. Wish the gas tank was larger/had better gas mileage.

- Anna P

The fuel mileage is very good, it went beyond the manufacturer's listing over time.

The vehicle has been problem free for the most part. I did need to replace a fan blower switch last year. It is a fairly quiet ride but it depends on the tires too.

- Charles w

I hate it. I wish we could exchange it or sell it but we still owe 12000 on it

It was an emergency buy. We had no time to research or properly test drive it. It is a complete pain in the ass and has been in and out of the shop for the past year.

- Ana G

It travels well. It is comfortable. Has good leg space.

We have been very happy with our escape. It has proven to be reliable and good in bad weather. The interior is comfortable for both long grid and the daily commute.

- Jane C

it looks small but it roomy on the inside and the rear compartment can hold quite a lot

the main thing i like about my car is it gets great gas mileage and is pretty roomy for its smaller size as far as what i don't like that would be the plastic bumpers

- nunya b

It drives well and burn very little gas.

I like everything about it except the front seat could be a little bit more spacious. I could use a little bit more room getting in and out because of my disability.

- Doris W

There is so much space inside the car.

I haven't had any problems with my car, it drives really well I just got it and had it all checked out it runs perfect for the year and haven't noticed any issues.

- Chloe K

It is a safe car and travels smoothly down the road. It has been well worth the money.

It has a lot of mileage on it, but it is still a good car. I wish it had more add ons. It sits a little high, but rides comfortably. I do like the leather seats.

- Jamie F

It is a reliable car for all kinds of weather and road conditions.

I like how well the vehicle handles in snow. I also like the tight steering and sensitive brakes. I do not like that it does not have much power for acceleration.

- Kerri P

That is runs good and looks like it did when I purchased it.

I like the color but dislike that my vehicle is getting old. Hopefully I will get another vehicle in the years to come, most likely it will not be a Ford model.

- Shell R

Rides and handles great. Solid ride.

It has performed well. I really haven't had any mechanical issues. However the seat is cloth and is starting to show ok w wear. I would get leather next time.

- Al W

It's reliable and fun to drive! I like the boxer body style that the 2011 model has and love the sunroof on nice days.

It's easy to drive, I feel safe and can see above traffic. Gas mileage is good, but it's a little difficult to parallel park now that I live in a large city.

- Heather H

It's reliable. It does not have the fancy navigations and back up cameras but it functions well and you are able to see out easily.

It is a black SUV. What I don't like is that the rear wheel wells are rusting. What I do like is the ride and the size of the vehicle. The gas mileage is ok.

- Dorothy K

It is a basic SUV and has been a good car.

It has 108, 000 and I have had no problems. There was a recall on it for the steering wheel. The gas mileage is not what it used to be but it still runs well.

- Gill B

The Ford Escape gets great gas mileage, especially on highways!

It is lime green and sporty. I like that the back seats fold down to create a larger cargo area. I wish there was a place for a spare tire, not just a donut.

- Hillary D

I love how smooth the drive is in my car and I also feel that my children are safe when we are driving .

my car has been very safe and reliable in the 4 years i have owned it. I enjoy driving it and my favorite feature is probably my heated seats in the winter.

- kate b

It's cost efficient. We've only had one repair(for freon) in the nearly 8 years we've owned it.

I like the gas mileage because I do a lot of highway driving. The backseat is a little small, so as my kids get bigger, I'll probably need a bigger vehicle.

- Jennifer H

It is safe on the roads. It is easy to drive on the roads and it has a rest interior.

My vehicle is great because it makes me comfortable on the roads. I like everything about it and I have no complaints. I would recommend it to new drivers.

- Ashley S

It gets me to work on a daily basis

I only gave my car 4 stars because my AC had problems. It is reliable but it is nearing the 100 thousand mile mark and feels like it will collapse on me.

- Marnie K

Rear hatch has an opening window for ease in putting small packages or bags in.

Love the square shape and doors. Easy in and out. Could have bought a new one, but didn't like the egg shape.... Fuel economy is great. Comfortable ride.

This car is very safe and comfy.

I like my vehicle is 4 wheel drive. It gets okay gas mileage. But I wish it would turn better. Although it does do well in the ice and rain.

- Shelly P

it's a 4 cylinder therefore has no power, going uphills

Like all the extras, moonroof, heated seats, navigation system, power everything, what i hate, 4 cylinder no power, and turning radius sucks

- cindy c

2011 black Ford Escape review.

The Ford Escape is a reliable small SUV that drives great. The only problems with it are the gas mileage is not great and the transmission.

- Alex J

It runs well and is very reliable.

There seem to be a lot of mechanical problems. My dad had to replace my brake calipers and my throttle body within two weeks of each other.

Few blind spots and warm butts!

Great size for a young adult, safety features include extra mirrors on the side mirrors for blind spot coverage. Love the butt warmers!

Be ready for lots of maintenance costs. So far we have had 3 recalls, which seems like a lot for one model by one manufacturer.

It is fun to drive when it works. There are too many recalls and it's inconvenient to get them repaired. Too many issues to enjoy.

- RBel B

My Ford escape is the best car I've ever owned.

I bought my car in 2011 brand new. I have owned a ford truck before I bought the escape and knew that ford was the most reliable.

The most important thing others should know about my car is that it is great for getting around town, and it's good on gas.
