Low maintenance, highly dependable vehicle.
2012 Ford Escape XLS
This car has been an absolute gem for me. I've had only a few minor repairs and they've all been sensors of one kind or another, which you would expect to go at some point with today's technology and the fact that I've had my car for 7 years. I've kept up with routine maintenance and have had zero repairs. This is the complete opposite of my previous car. The car still performs as it is brand new even after 7 years. At the time, I was in a different financial situation so I don't have many extra features, but the car is still very comfortable for my family of five. I have three child seats across the back row and all the children are comfortable in their seats; they don't feel too crowded. This experience with Ford has really locked me in with a future purchase. The ESCAPE will probably be a bit small as my family grows, but I still have a solid 3-4 years left, in my opinion, with this car. After that, I will definitely be looking at FORD to upgrade to a larger vehicle.
