It was not built to last: several systems experience fault within the first three years.

On the whole it has been very reliable. We made the choice to purchase from Ford because my father in law was a Ford employee for many years and qualified for the family pricing. It was nice to be able to go to a dealership and not worry about high pressure salespeople. The Escape was large enough for our family yet small enough to get good fuel economy. The 1.6L EcoBoost engine has a surprising amount of pep, as well. Less than a year after purchase, the car had a problem with the climate control: it became impossible to redirect airflow from the floor, which was not only a major inconvenience in itself, but the dealership in the city we lived in at the time refused to fix it the first three times I brought the car in. A few months later the handle broke off the inside of the back hatch - I am not inhumanly strong, so this was indicative of poor build quality. Periodically the back hatch will start chirping like a baby bird on uppers, again an indication of poor build quality, as pieces of the hatch are held together with tiny plastic clips rather than actual hardware. Also, on long trips, the air conditioner compressor ices up, causing a near-catastrophic loss of engine power and acceleration. Unfortunately, as a consumer of modern autos, I have to temper my expectations. A car should be built to last, however to suit the corporate bottom line, cars are built to be disposable, and often do not last much longer than the standard financing term. I will probably purchase a Ford again, and possibly even an Escape, but simply because my family has the privilege of accessing Ford family pricing.

Really great car: The overall design inside and out is outstanding. All the features ate great, but my favorite is the heated seats.

My Escape is beautiful and I love the features. I have the large screen, heated seats (which one of my favorite features), easy to fold down back seats which increases my storage space. I love my radio and the Bose speakers. A really handy feature is the controls that are on the steering wheel. You can adjust the volume of the radio and even chance the radio channels from the steering wheel which keeps your eyes looking straight ahead which lowers the chance of an accident. The Escape drives so great and smooth you almost feel like you are floating. Another great feature is it tells you exactly how many miles you can travel considering how much gas you have in the tank. It actually gives you a constant running tally. To me that is remarkable because knowing that lets you know how much farther you can go before you need to refuel and it keeps you from having to guess when you're fuel is getting low if you have enough mileage to teach your destination. Now that I have that feature I can not imagine ever going without it. The interior is really nice and comfortable. With the ability to adjust your seat to better fit your back you can drive for long periods of time without getting a backache. And I like the fact that I can change the color of all the interior lighting and the lights are well placed. The bumper to bumper coverage is great. It even includes your oil changes.

Reasons why we love our Ford Escape and you should too!

We love our Ford Escape, we were looking for something with great gas mileage, but also a safe family car. We were thinking a Subaru in the beginning of our search, but when we drove the Escape we felt it ticked more of the right boxes. We have to fit 2 car seats in the back, so we wanted a car we could easily install car seats. This one makes it so simple and safe! I wanted a sunroof, my husband wanted a moon roof, the Escape has both! And it even extends to the backseat which is awesome. The kids love to look out at the trees and mountains on long car trips. The back hatch is light and easy to lift and the space is plenty big enough for our jogging stroller, groceries, and camping gear. The Bluetooth option is great and easy to use, I love the hands free option. The climate control is great and doesn't take long hot or cold to get the temp just right. My husband loves driving in sport mode and I love how it monitors your overall gas mileage, we love our car and plan to drive it till it cannot drive anymore!, I would highly recommend this to any family, or to anyone looking for style and frugality.
