Being from southern ca, I no longer have to fear winter in Ohio!

My 2017 Ford Escape titanium is the perfect small SUV for me! We moved to the Midwest in 2016 from southern ca. I was not used to winter and I was miserable. For Christmas last year my husband bought me this great car. It has heated seats in the front, a heated steering wheel, remote start & even a back up camera! I did not know I needed that feature until I had it! I am able to start the vehicle from inside the house or my work and the windows are defrosted and the car fairly warm before I even get in it! It is changed my winter life! It also has all leather interior which i'd never had before. The radio has Sirius, which my husband works for, so I am really enjoying that! My husbands favorite feature on my new car in the seat memory thingy! Of course I am #1, he is #2 and we can even add a 3rd setting. Before he gets in my car, all he has to do is press a button and seat position goes to his setting! Really, it is a great car!

Love my escape - comfy safe car.

The seats are very comfortable - I like the way they are configured - high up and able to sit straight. There's a nice footrest for the left foot. There were some initial problems with the windshield wipers - they stuttered on the glass - which now has been fixed. Good pickup. Good gas mileage - I got 31 mph on my last trip from pa to ma. Huge windshield. Easy to park. Mine is that bright blue color, which I would not have ordered, but am getting to like it - lots of them this color out there - today at lunch there was another in the parking lot. Heated seats are great. Seems to heat or cool nicely. Love that the engine turns off at stoplights to save gas - I guess it makes a difference but there is really no way to tell. The radio is more complicated than necessary but it is ok. Sounds good. Love the side mirrors - it has that extra little mirror built in that really gets rid of the blind spot. Love my car.

Excellent crossover vehicle.

We haven't had any problems with anything on the vehicle. It is a comfortable vehicle for it is class. If has leather power heated front seats, memory seat for two different driving styles, touch screen for all audio, phone and navigation needs, sync system for hands free Bluetooth calling, panoramic electric sunroof, electric hands free liftgate. Spacious trunk space, spare tire, good fuel economy, reasonable maintenance costs, built in programmable garage door opening controls, ambient lighting that can be changed to a variety of colors, spacious console, remote start and push button start. We have traveled thousands of miles in this vehicle and we comfortably fit 3 of us and a small dog along with 2 large suitcases, 2 small suitcases, a duffle bag and several other small items. Love this vehicle we will be purchasing another new one in the future.
