2011 Ford Escape XLS
For the most part it is a really good car. My only daily concern with the car is I wish the car had better gas mileage. Looking at major problems with this vehicle I have had some issues with the engine. Fortunately, it has been under warranty, so the costs have not been too significant. I would definitely recommend buying the warranty because it has been so worth it for me. This would be the third engine I have had in this car. This all started because one day when I was driving my car had a piece under the hood come off while I was driving. This piece went through the engine and destroyed it. After that the vehicle was in repair for nearly two months at a Ford dealership. They put a new engine in and again it was not firing right. After this they put the third engine in and after that I made sure to get an extended warranty on the engine. It is a good thing I did because after a few years my check engine light came on. I went to have it repaired and this would have cost me potentially over $5,000 without the warranty to fix a small piece of the engine. Luckily, I was able to get it fixed for a very low cost, and I was able to use a rental during the time it was being fixed. Although I have had my fair share of issues with the car, I still enjoy the vehicle. In addition, Ford has been pretty helpful making sure that everything is up to date and running smoothly with the car.

I drive a lot. My escape currently has almost 180,000 miles on it. There have been very few problems. We keep up with the regular maintenance on it. The dealership where we bought it takes care of the maintenance. When driven properly I get good gas mileage with it. Gas mileage averages from 24 to 30 mpg. Between town and highway driving I normally get 25 to 26 mpg. I have gotten up to 31 mpg on the highway. My escape is off white with black interior. The only thing I would change is the black interior. The black interior shows all the dust. We live in the country with a driveway that is gravel and 2/10 mile long. This has been a very reliable car with very few problems. Have replaced battery, tires and wipers but no major issues. This past week the check engine light came on and they replaced the seal on the gas lid. There is not a gas cap, just a seal on the lid that keeps dust and water out. I like the convenience of not having to keep up with a gas cap. My car handles very well on the road. And it is comfortable. The ac works great and I love the seat warmers. The radio has a good sound and I love that I was able to load my music into the jukebox. I have a sunroof but don't use it much due to problems with skin cancer. I would recommend the escape to anyone.

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.
