Reliable, Handles Well, Great All Around

2016 Ford Escape S

The 2016 Ford Escape is a great car. It handles really well. The only time I've ever had an issue where it needed to go into the shop it was just that the battery (which was three years old) died in the middle of winter. As soon as the battery was replaced, it was good as new. Aside from that, it's never broken down on me. It's got a USB port which is great for listening to my music. And the sound quality is really good; especially the bass. It easily seats five people comfortably. There's plenty of space in the trunk for groceries or really anything. Seats are easy to adjust.

- Quinn S

The 2016 Ford Escape is a compact crossover SUV that comes in three trim levels.

2016 Ford Escape S

Standard features on the S include 17-inch steel wheels, an integrated blind-spot mirror, MyKey parental controls, full power accessories, keyless entry, cruise control, air-conditioning, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a height-adjustable driver seat, a 60/40-split folding and reclining rear seat, a 4.2-inch central display, a rearview camera, the Sync voice command electronics interface with AppLink smartphone integration, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and a USB port.

- Michelle L

The ford escape is a great buy.

2016 Ford Escape S

I absolutely love my ford escape. It has tons of space and the interior is very good. I love having all the room in the back seat because I am very tall and cannot sit in most back seats of cars. The performance is great, the gas mileage is great for an SUV. The engine is more than big enough for the SUV and the horsepower is just right. The comfort of the seats is great, it has great suspension and is very smooth to drive. Overall I absolutely love this car and would recommend it to anyone looking for a car.

- Darwin W

Love the Color. Candy Apple Red, interior is gray and I like the contrast

2016 Ford Escape S

My Ford Escape is very good on fuel consumption. It rides comfortably. Lots of room in back for miscellaneous things. I don't like the fact that it is hard to see outside windows and this makes it difficult for merging onto highway. Also, the windshield on drivers side is difficult to see out of as you are turning or parking This is my first SUV so this may be an issue with all of them

- Sharon M

Great Gas mileage SUV, American car

2016 Ford Escape S

I really like it's performance, gas mileage is also very good. My myself and my husband use it when we go skiing because it has enough room for the skis and equipment. We usually put down the back seats so we can carry all the ski equipment, clothing and food for the ski trip. We also like it because it's a 4WD so we feel safe on a snowy day when we travel.

- Marly B

Great ride, very smooth drive.

2016 Ford Escape S

Drives smooth, feels safe. I like it a lot, has not had any problems. Lots of room inside for all kinds of fun stuff. Great trunk space for shopping. I like how high it sits on the road. Seats are comfortable, adjustable and fits me nice. I am able to make them nice and high since I am short. All around, car is great, I really like it and enjoy driving it.

- Amy G

Love my escape the little Red River.

2016 Ford Escape S

It is very comfortable! Has amazing gas mileage. I love the dual temp control. It runs and drives very smooth. It actually revs up kind of when you step on the gas. I have had absolutely no maintenance problems with my ford escape yet. The only thing I do not like is it is not heavy enough to tow any real weight like a decent pull behind camper.

- Angela R

Great car at a very great price!

2016 Ford Escape S

I love my vehicle. It's comfortable, and reliable. I drive more than 30 miles each way for work and get good mileage. There is more than one place to charge electrical items, which is nice when traveling with family. I only wish cup holders were bigger and that I'd paid to have the trunk open automatically.

- Melissa B

Love the ford escape so much!

2016 Ford Escape S

I absolutely love this car! First, the amount of room in the front and in the back seat is more than what I could've thought. The trunk space is spacious without taking up the entire car. I love the Bluetooth connectivity, and voice to call feature. I really enjoy the heated seats during the winter time!

- Kristin D

Backup camera makes parallel parking easy

2016 Ford Escape S

Super reliable and good on gas. Haven't had any problems with it. I really love the backup camera as it makes backing up and parallel parking safe and quick. It gives me peace of mind when making these maneuvers. There is a tendency for the front window to get foggy and it takes a while for it to clear.

- Jasmine R

I'm a huge fan of the wide windshield.

2016 Ford Escape S

Love it! No problems. Only thing that's annoying it when I take it to autozone for a new battery they can't help me change it because the battery is in an odd spot under the dashboard. So I had to go pay the dealership about $70 just to change the battery that I already paid for. So not a fan of that

- Ashley E

I love to drive my 2019 Ford Escape the 4 cylinder engine has the power of a V8.

2016 Ford Escape S

Very nice and fun to drive. No problems so far and reliability is excellent the seats and interior I give 9 stars for comfort. It has plenty features and they are all easy to reach the 4 cylinder engine is powerful and performs like a sports vehicle. I'm sure you will love to drive around like I do!

- Michael M

Great on gas and very spacious

2016 Ford Escape S

Its spacious and amazing on gas. I drove for 6 hours on one tank ! I love the rearview camera it makes life easier. But my favorite feature is the fact that my car tells me when something is wrong with it with the system check. I have always wanted an SUV and I'm glad I picked this one.

- Dominique S

But is it reliable? Read and find out.

2016 Ford Escape S

The car is relatively reliable but I have sometimes had trouble starting the car. I would suggest buying a new engine when you get the car because the engine that the car comes with is not the greatest. Other than that, the car is actually pretty good, especially for going on road trips.

- Ashley C

A great vehicle for the money

2016 Ford Escape S

Easy to drive, great visibility, backup mirror is amazing, love the hands free phone feature, backseat is roomy. Like the ability to put back seats down and haul larger items. It gets great gas mileage in town and on the road. This model year did not have GPS which I would have liked

- Barb O

Reliable and Dependable Car.

2016 Ford Escape S

This is a reliable car that runs well and is good on gas. The car is responsive and easy to handle. I like that it big enough that it is good in all weather but small enough that is easily parked. This is the second Escape that I have owned and would definitely recommend this car.

- Andy L

Ford escape 2016 first car.

2016 Ford Escape S

Wish it had automatic seats, wish it had a 3 seater, & seat warmers, maybe even a push to start or sensors if you're too close to another car or if another car is coming - it does have back up camera, mykey feature, reliable, great on gas, Bluetooth features and, runs very smooth.

- Vanessa A

Electronic Throttle Body problem

2016 Ford Escape S

I love the car! It has a great ability to accelerate quickly. Very good brakes (not too touchy). The only issue I have had so far is the electronic throttle body. I did have to have that and the gaskets replaced which costed about $350. Other than that I haven't had any issues.

- Brittany B

Ford escape is a comfortable, good looking car that is great for a family.

2016 Ford Escape S

I like the way it looks. It is a comfortable ride. I do not like the radio set up- I find it difficult to change stations while driving. It has ample room for 2 adults and two car seats. The only thing I do not like is there is too much noise coming into the car when driving.

- Debbie L

2016 Ford Escape- good all around vehicle

2016 Ford Escape S

Very reliable and comfortable. Nice features such as rear view camera when backing up and blind spot mirrors on side mirrors. Stereo is decent. Okay on gas mileage- averaging 26 mpg. Problems with Back window not rolling down and comfort of seat when pushed back all the way.

- Danielle H

My Escape is a perfect family car

2016 Ford Escape S

I really do love my car. It is dependable and is an easy drive. I love the reverse camera. I do wish the interior felt bigger/more spacious. But, it has great safety features and it has never had any trouble with the engine or the body. It gets fantastic mileage, too.

- Patricia J

Great navigation system and sync 3 communications/entertainment system .

2016 Ford Escape S

Love the Ford Escape! It drives well in all types of weather, it has an electronic lock on the side of the door so if you lose your keys all you need is a code. Great stereo system and very spacious. Love the drive it's smooth and comfortable. Reliable and affordable car.

- Suzanne L

I love my beautiful ford escape.

2016 Ford Escape S

My ford escape is wonderful. It is great on gas and handles wonderfully in bad weather. It also has a ton of room for groceries, all my kids gear, and for luggage when we travel. It is my favorite of every car I have ever driven. It is roomy but easy to navigate and park.

- Beth M

Not the best purchase for me.

2016 Ford Escape S

I would probably not purchase another escape. It has been in the shop with transmission problems a few times, the paint has chipped off the doors and had to be repainted. There is not a lot of room in them. Just not the best car for 5 people with one being in a car seat.

- Ashley E

Sirius is a nice bonus as well as an keyless entry pin pad on the door.

2016 Ford Escape S

The performance is one of the best for an SUV, it's not choppy and the acceleration is what made me want this vehicle. I haven't had any problems with engine or other mechanics. The interior is comfortable and roomy that I can be comfortable driving long distance.
