2012 Ford Escape
I love the Ford Escape. It is a very reliable car and I have had zero mechanical issues with it. Even though it is 6 years old, everything functions perfectly and I love the sync feature to use voice commands to use my mobile phone, play music, etc. The gas mileage is very good on this car, making it very economical to drive. My Escape has excellent room for passengers and cargo. five passengers with all of their luggage have been on multiple road trips and nobody is cramped for space. I love the reliability of Ford cars and I will continue to buy them for many years to come. When I can afford a new car, I will definitely be buying another ford. I love the built-in features letting you know when tire pressure is low, when it is time for an oil change, etc. The voice commands with sync are very intuitive and easy to follow. Pairing your phone is quick and easy. I can wirelessly play all the music on my phone with the Bluetooth connectivity and call anyone in my phone's address book. The electric driver's seat adjustments go in every direction imaginable and they are easy to do on the fly. There are numerous spots for storage including the normal glove compartment, a convenient storage compartment between the front seats, and a large cargo area in the back. For additional cargo space, the back row of seats can be lowered flat which has proved valuable to me many times. It helps when purchasing large items, making an extra large warehouse store run, and helping friends and family members move! I highly recommend the Ford Escape!
2012 Ford Escape
It is a very reliable car. I have had it for 6 years now and it still runs very well. The features are a little outdated in it but it was my first car so I cannot complain that much. The seats are fabric which makes them extremely susceptible to stains. I have accidentally spilled water on my seats and that left a huge dark stain. I also had a big problem with the air conditioning in that car. I got the coolant and everything else that you could think of that would fix the air but nothing worked. If it was 70 degrees or hotter outside then my air would not work and it would just blow hot air. So it is very important to check and make sure all of the air conditioning and heat works. I have had very minor problems with the car. The engine in my car is very small, I believe a v4 which is very small compared to my dad's Ford Explorer with a v10 engine. When driving this car you have to be careful when accelerating because the rpm will shoot up towards 5 very quickly every time you accelerate. That is really the only big thing that stinks about having the smaller engine. In the winter I have had no major problems driving in the snow. I have never gotten stuck anywhere in my car because of the snow. When I do go to accelerate in the snow sometimes the tires spin. It is occasionally hard to get traction even with the good winter tires I had on my car.
2012 Ford Escape XLT
I love my 2012 Ford Escape. I have always drove a truck but changed to the SUV and it was lived up to all my expectations. The Escape has enough room to haul as much as I would in a pick up when traveling out of town. I have a sunroof that is enjoyed in the summertime with my son. It had above 60,000 miles on it when I bought it used but I haven't had a single problem with it and it still feels brand new. With the XLT series I have lights for nighttime that changes colors with one push of a button, I love changing the colors and getting to customize my vehicle. The back seat it comfy and roomy even with a huge car seat in the middle. The only complaint I would have is that the driver side leather seat has a tear in it so it hasn't held up to all the in and out throughout the last 7 years but that is really to be expected. I love the seat warmers especially when it was cold outside and the leather seats were cold, I would push the button and the seat would be heated by the time I got to my front gate. I haven't hooked up the voice control because I feel like it is difficult to hook up but the 2012 Ford Escape also has a hands free mode that can be hooked up to your phone. With the hands free you can talk on the phone or read text messages out loud.
