Slick, cute, efficient, fun, and a great radio system!

I love my Escape! We were lucky to find one that had a heated driver seat and black rims! I wish it had a little bit more room but we have two boys that are highly involved in sports, especially baseball, so when it comes to packing a pop-up canopy, two baseball bags, two chug jugs, a bag for snacks, and two chairs, room gets a little tight. It looks slick, has great pick up, and I love the Sirius radio! After a 8 year hiatus from Sirius we ended up subscribing for another year because we got 3 months free with our vehicle purchase. If you are looking for a fun, cute, efficient, vehicle, this is the SUV for you!

It is easy to drive and maneuvers well, and gets ok gas mileage.

I like that it is on the smaller side so it easily fits in all parking spaces, can zip in and out of traffic, and is very easy to drive. I am not big on the color I wish I could have had something other than black. I also wish it was 4 wheel drive as we do drive on the beach so we can only take my husband's vehicle to the beach. Another thing I wish Ford would redesign in the lack of center console space, there is no where to set your phone or a house key I miss the little area my previous Escape had to stick little things. But overall it is a good vehicle, decent gas mileage and decent space in the back area.

Great vehicle at a great value!

Overall, I am very pleased with this vehicle. When I originally started car shopping, I was very impressed by the number of features in my ford escape compared to similar vehicles at that price point. The ford sync system, Bluetooth features, and blind spot detectors made me choose this vehicle over any other. I am on the shorter side (only 5'1') but I can comfortably drive this vehicle. I also love the automatic trunk and ample back seat/trunk space. The only downsides are the blind spots are really bad (thank goodness for the blind spot detectors) and it is severely lacking cup holder/storage space up front.
