2013 Ford Escape
My vehicle has the power I need and want and it runs smoothly. I like the idea of Bluetooth, but it does not have the backup camera. I would love to have the backup camera but my vehicle is small enough that I have no problem parking between two vehicles. If someone pulls too close, it is small enough to pull it out without trouble. It is easy on gas but it has a small gas tank and it seems like I have to fill up a lot, but I love my vehicle. It tells me if I have a low tire, but not which tire. It tells me when it is time to change my oil and I like that reminder. My vehicle has the heated seats which for the most part I do not use, but my daughter does because it helps her back. I would have liked to have had cloth seats. The leather seats can be uncomfortable when I wear shorts in the summer so I use a towel on the seat. I like how the dimmer switch is on the steering column so that I can use it conveniently. I like the features of my vehicle. My vehicle is not too big nor too small. I dislike the size of the tires. The tires are 18" and of course they cost more, but it handles nicely. The features that come in my vehicle are just right for me. My car was bought used so that I did not have the option of picking what I wanted, but am satisfied with what I have.

The acceleration of our particular ford I'd rate as very good for an SUV and with over 120,000 miles we haven't had any major engine or transmission problems. We usually stick with the oil change schedule and top off other fluids as needed. The ride is very comfortable and you probably wouldn't feel a difference between going 70 to up around 85 miles per hour. The reliability has been pretty good too, which is essentially the only reason we still have it. The problems around the car mainly have to do with servicing the vehicle. The battery is almost impossible to get to and we had to totally replace the lugs on every tire due to a design flaw that ford will not take responsibility for. Once one of our seat belt receptacles was destroyed when we pushed the seats to their stowaway position but we didn't use that seat anyway. The undercarriage guard also falls completely off in every ford escape we have owned. Expect a lot of out of pocket costs for these types of small fixes and trim replacement.

I very much like this vehicle. It has taken us from Seattle to Houston and Houston to Chicago. That in and of itself is amazing. We never had a problem during any of those road trips. I give this car a 4/5. I would have given it a 5 out of 5 but there are a few things that could be better. For example, if it had better storage up front. The middle console is so small and the side compartments in the door are also very small. Similar vehicles I have been in from same time frame have better storage. One 'feature' I don't like is that if the key is near the door it will auto open, which sounds convenient unless you are in the car with the key and want the doors to be locked while parked. They do auto lock while the car is moving. This can be unsafe for those who are more targeted by thieves. The car runs wonderful and has a lot of great features though. I especially love the kick feature for the back hatch to open when hands are full. The heated seats are wonderful.
