    The Ford Escape is a reliable vehicle.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    My car so far very reliable. I have not had any problems with it since I purchased it in 2017. I love the backup camera and Bluetooth/handsfree capabilities. I find that the acceleration is lacking any power and I really have to floor it to get any response. It's a comfortable ride although I wish there were more ways to adjust the seat. I am a small person and I would like to sit higher in the vehicle but there is no way to adjust the seat accept to move it forward and back. It has good storage in the back and my family of 4 can easily pack everything we need for a road trip. Overall, I am pleased with the car as it gets me where I need to go reliably and only requires routine maintenance. However, I used to drive a Toyota RAV4 and given the choice I would go back to the Rav. It was more fun to drive.

    The 2017 Ford Escape is a spacious vehicle that does not get good gas mileage. .

    2017 Ford Escape S

    The 2017 Ford Escape is a great car overall, for people who never travel on the highway or outside of their city. It goes through gas like no other. It drives pretty smooth and it's faster than what you would think. Its best features are the heated seats and how much space you have on the inside of the car. Also the hands free mode for when you are driving and talking on the phone. It would also be nice if the dealers would tell you that there was a silent recall on all 2017 Ford Escape engines, but that's something you have to find out when you go in to get the car checked out because the engine light came on. Which will go off when they put fluid in the car where it's low. The tires always go low.. All in all, I would not lease or buy this car again. It goes through too much gas to go anywhere.

    Ford Escape - a must have

    2017 Ford Escape S

    My vehicle has a plastic piece underneath that is always coming loose and is honestly quite annoying as it flaps in the wind. I do wish it had more space as well, especially the backseat as it sits close to the front seats. The final thing I have concerns about is the voice activated Bluetooth - it never understands what/who I'm trying to call. Perhaps that's more of a user error though... However, I really appreciate the safety of the vehicle and the height the car sits at. The front seats are EXTREMELY comfortable and I enjoy driving the car! It rides smooth and so far I haven't had any issues with engine or controls.

    Ford Escape: more negative than positive

    2017 Ford Escape S

    The car does not ride comfortably. It feels very tight inside where there isn't much space between seats. The alarms randomly go off while driving which is very distracting. The air conditioning isn't strong when it's hot outside. The trunk has plenty of space which is a good thing. The review camera screen is too small and hard to judge. The car doesn't get good gas mileage either. I wish the middle console was larger for cups and such. Every time I use it for drinks they tend to spill out.

    - Jennifer P

    Big enough for pets and Trees

    2017 Ford Escape S

    This car is very reliable and has yet to have any major problems. While it is only 2 years old, I have not had to have anything looked at except for a rattling passenger window that was easily fixed. It is big enough to travel with pets comfortably and functional enough to transport Christmas trees in. Size wise, it is everything I wanted. Reliability wise, it is everything I needed. The body style is very basic, it is easy to lose in a crowded parking lot. But for what it is, I love it.

    - Selena C

    Roomy and Comfortable but not fuel efficient

    2017 Ford Escape S

    I love driving my escape. Its roomy and comfortable, has all the bells and whistles like a backup camera, Bluetooth, Sirius radio etc. It has/had only two downsides. The first is that it only gets an average of 20 miles to the gallon so I'm spending more on gas than I'd like to and the other was that if had a problem right near the 36,000 mile mark. It under 36,000 so they fixed it at no cost but I didn't love the idea of something breaking down so soon. Overall though I love the car

    - Holly K

    Ugly but would still recommend

    2017 Ford Escape S

    I would consider my Ford Escape as, 'fine.' Functionally, it's great. I do believe it is overpriced, monthly payments are excessively high. Mileage is good but surprisingly not as efficient as I would have thought. Aesthetically, I don't love it. Definitely could use an upgrade in the looks department. I also don't know why garage door buttons aren't built into the vehicle unless it's a 'titanium' or if you pay extra - I feel like nowadays things like that should be a standard feature.

    - Jacqueline P

    Helpful and friendly advice for Ford vehicles

    2017 Ford Escape S

    Have not experienced any problems with Ford Escape yet. It has been reliable, comfortable and performed well during long road trips. The gas mileage has been good and for example, only had to fill up once during a 4.5 hour trip. The tires have been maintaining great pressure, even after driving on roads under construction. Also what I like about driving this car is the service department at the dealership. They have been very friendly and helpful.

    - Sherry D

    2017 ford escape with rear view camera and hands free phone.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    I enjoy driving this car. The back up camera is not the most reliable. The camera view is upside down, blinks in and out, or is blank. I would have to pay $100.00 just to get the problem figured out then I would have to pay to get the problem fixed even after I took it to the dealership for the problem a few months after the purchase of the car. The Bluetooth phone and connection are great features. Those also are not the most reliable features.

    - Sarah P

    2017 ford escape is really good vehicle.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    It is a really good car. It is very fuel efficient and easy to maintain. It has enough space for a family of four and I like the trunk space. The back seats fold forward if you need more room to transport large items. I really love it because of the fact that I can use regular gas in it and a full tank can last me for an entire week, taking my kids to and from school and driving two hours back and forth for work.

    - Tracey S

    Comfort and ease of driving for the busy mom on the go!

    2017 Ford Escape S

    The 2017 Ford Escape is extremely comfortable with cloth seats that even in Texas heat don't make you sweat. I drive very frequently with a toddler in a car seat and there is still plenty of room in the back seat for other passengers. I enjoy the ease at which it drives and handles and the best part is the sync feature that connects to your phone for hands-free calls and reading of text messages.

    - Joann L

    2017 Ford Escape the number one vehicle choice for myself and my family

    2017 Ford Escape S

    No problems as of yet get great gas mileage, very roomy great for camping trips and long rides has plenty of leg room and plenty of charging stations I will highly recommend this vehicle to a couple with no children or even a family of four it has plenty of seating plenty of legroom the seats are easy to put up and down for the cargo space Anuradha javeri economical easy vehicle to driving maneuver

    - Lou Ann V

    I lease the 2017 Ford Escape for my family of 4.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    Very spacious especially in the trunk. Very comfortable and safe car. Favorite thing about car would be the interior design and its energy saving. The only thing this car is missing that I would really like is a sensor on the mirrors that let you know if another car is in your blind spot. Other than that this car has been good for my family and I highly recommend it to others.

    - Kelsey S

    The Ford Escape: Simple and Luxurious

    2017 Ford Escape S

    My vehicle is very reliable. The cost of gas (which is most important to me) is extremely affordable. The Ford Escape gives notifications on what it needs such as, an oil change, tire pressure, etc. I do not have leather seats. The seats I have are extremely comfortable and support your back fully. CarPlay is included along with Bluetooth, heated seats, and automatic windows.

    - Joseph M

    Favorite part of this vehicle is the gas mileage you are getting

    2017 Ford Escape S

    Has been pretty reliable since I've had it. Windshield is very large took some getting used to on sunny days. Overall a great vehicle. The ride is very smooth and it's a compact vehicle so it feels like you are driving a car but with the same space as an SUV so it is a very good vehicle for moms with children who do alot of commuting and/or daily running around .

    - Stephanie M

    Love my Ford Escape smooth driving and size.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    Vehicle is 2.5 years old and has only 11,000 miles on it. I have not had any problems with it. I love the pick up and simplicity. Not a fan of all the bells and whistles. We plan to purchase this car after the lease is up. I am 62 and this vehicle is very comfortable to get into and drive. Perfect size for my needs. Love the look. Very peppy vehicle.

    - Frances D

    Good compact SUV for family of four.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    This is a decent, affordable SUV for a family of 4. Good on gas. We are able to fit 2 car seats in the back seat. I can still fit my groceries in the truck with a single stroller there as well. Not great space in the trunk for a double stroller, in order to fit a double stroller in the truck, the stroller needs to be compact or fold up much smaller.

    - Katie K

    Comfort and easy drivingwotn.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    This vehicle is reliable with lots of extra room. I have a brother who is 6 ft tall and he sits comfortably in the back for extended drives. It has a sport feature that allows switches the car from automatic to manual. Very few issues. Under the hood is very tight and definitely requires a mechanic with a car lift rather than home mechanics.

    - Mikaela S

    Comparing my ford escapes.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    My ford escape is a wonderful car. I bought my first one on sight alone. I love the body style. It is very comfortable to drive. My first one would beep as you backed up so you knew how close you were to an object. I do wish my new one did. It does have a backup camera, but I do not feel very comfortable looking at it when I back up.

    - Dallas O

    Rides well, decent gas mileage,

    2017 Ford Escape S

    I enjoy driving my car, it rides well and hasn't had any major problems thus far. I like that it is a newer model, but if I could I would have chosen a different color other than red. I also would have opted for heated seats and a sunroof, I really miss those features. I enjoy the digital speed display, and miles to empty.

    - Jessica B

    Sunroof is fun. Roomy and comfortable. Easy to drive.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    I like how it drives. You get a smooth ride. There is plenty of room. The storage space in the back is adequate for our needs. I also like the sunroof on a pretty day. I would recommend this vehicle to others. There are proper seat belts to install cars seats which is important to us because we have three grandchildren.

    - Diane J

    This car has good gas mileage and can have 4 passengers plus the driver!

    2017 Ford Escape S

    I got the vehicle because I was concerned about driving in harsh conditions and bad weather; I wanted something reliable. The only issue I have come across is that there is a leak in one of the axial rods. Other than that, it drives really well. It has enough space for four passengers, and it gets good gas mileage.

    - Madison A

    My 2017 Ford Escape is reliable

    2017 Ford Escape S

    The 2017 is a nice reliable SUV. However if you have a big family, it's not a suitable size. It's pretty small. The base model like I have still have great features such as sync (Bluetooth), and backup camera. Everything is still in good shape on the vehicle but I do experience a little rattling underneath the car.

    - Catherine D

    The Ford Escape is the perfect size for a family of four.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    I am thrilled with the Ford Escape. It is just the right size to drive my two children to their activities. I feel safe and spacious, but it is also still a compact vehicle. I love that the windshield is vertical so it doesn't make my eyes dizzy. We have not had any problems with it since we began the lease.

    - Michele M

    Ford Escape 2017: The positive outlooks of the SUV

    2017 Ford Escape S

    My car is very affordable, has a Bluetooth radio with other sources as well includes Sirius XM, heated seats, a great sound system, it also has sport mode which is a nice feature besides that it does not have the best gas mileage. It only gets about 23 miles per gallon in the city and 30 on the highway

    - Julia B

    Boring and uninspired with transmission issues.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    It is slow, the transmission is unresponsive, the check engine light comes on a lot, it is uncomfortable. The base model does not have many good features and it is kind of ugly. The backseat does have a decent amount of room and the trunk space is nice. But overall I will never get another ford.

    - Name A

    The dark blue Ford Escape

    2017 Ford Escape S

    The ac could be stronger for the back seat, it take a while for it to cool off in the back. I also feel that I have a good size blind spots when trying to change intersections. I do like the camera in the back for backing up. When I get too close to something and it beeps that helps so much!

    - Louise W

    My title is: My Ford Escape and me.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    It sometimes hesitates to start, but otherwise I love it. It's great on gas and a smooth comfortable ride. I really enjoy driving my Ford Escape. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to buy a compact SUV. It's a very good and reliable vehicle with lots of room and cargo space.

    - Robin M

    The Ford Escape is worth every penny

    2017 Ford Escape S

    It's big enough to fit my 2 car seats and drives really well. Great gas mileage and overall good experience. I like the sync technology that automatically picks up my phone so it can make calls and music through Bluetooth. The trunk is large and has enough room for a stroller and groceries

    - Melissa B

    Works for me but rear camera not helpful

    2017 Ford Escape S

    The rear camera does not beep if something is behind me. The Ford app doesn't always work. It is easy to drive and big enough for me. I think I should've gotten the Sirius radio for 12 months, not 6. The backseat is big enough and trunk is a good size to fit groceries and a stroller.

    - Daryl R

    Ford escape easy to drive and comfortable

    2017 Ford Escape S

    The Ford escape is easy to drive and comfortable. I have a near any problems with it in with 2 1/2 years I have it. I do wish you had more cup holders in the backseat. I like the back up camera and the steering system the seats are portable and easy to clean it dries very easily.

    - Julie M

    Unhappy with ford, specially sunrise Ford North Hollywood.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    Disappointed with ford, had problems since the first month and no warranty from dealer. Brakes were bad and it cost me about 300 plus to fix within a year of use, backing up sounds like is going to fall apart, and now power windows failing and vehicle have had less than 2 years.

    - Amanda H

    Very reliable car on the road.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    My vehicle has no problems. It drives very well and smooth on the road. It comes with a USB charging port for my phone. As well it has automated seat control for going up and down. It has a gas engine which is surprisingly very quiet when you crank up the motor in the ignition.

    - Drew T

    Ford Girl through and through.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    I haven't had any problems yet. The vehicle is still fairly new so it's still too soon to gauge. Plus I still have under 30k miles on a brand new car I purchased back in 2017. This is actually my 2nd Ford Escape just a newer model. I'm sure my next vehicle will be another Ford

    - Sonya J

    One of the Best Looking Cars

    2017 Ford Escape S

    I really like the car since it is comfortable, It is sleek and also has a great design. Very modern too. I think it can connect to a hotspot, but I'm not sure. I think that it is worth the money and time, and would last you a long time. Overall, I think this is an amazing car.

    - Alfonso H

    Ford escape details and review.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    Drives well. Handling is smooth. Acceleration is slow but not jerky. Decent room. Can accommodate 2 large car seats. Wish it had better gas mileage considering it is a 4 cylinder vehicle. Cargo room is nice and sufficient. S model does not have rear air which would be nice.

    - Liz M

    Love the camera on dashboard when backing up

    2017 Ford Escape S

    I have a lease car but live my escape the way it handles the roads and love how comfortable it is, it's very reliable and feel very safe when I am driving it. The features are unlimited but especially like the fact that I can open and shut my hatch with the push of a button

    - Vicki C

    Great, spacious and cute!

    2017 Ford Escape S

    Affordable, great gas mileage and space. I can put things in there that typically will not fit in a car but I do not have to have a huge truck or SUV. Back seats fold down. For extra room. 5 people fit comfortably. Great look and style. I would recommend it to others.

    - Shayla B

    Good for the price and great on gas.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    Has good gas mileage. A little small but perfect for a small family. Has not had any major issues and I have fifty thousand miles on it. Seems to get rocks hitting the windshield very often. Do not know if it is perfect height. Had it happen three times in six months.

    - Jennie D

    It has Bluetooth connections and it is very convenient.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    It run very good. Has very good gas mileage, especially when your driving long distance. It's a very good and safe car for a small family. Rear end camera, so it help when your backing out. The seats in the back fold down so you have extra space for whatever you need.

    - Rita A

    Ford escape 2017 - excellent for road trips!

    2017 Ford Escape S

    This vehicle has great performance! Excellent comfort and very roomy. Great on gas mileage. Takes $30 to fill the tank. Backup camera is very useful. Lighting on car is very useful especially at night and in stormy weather. Lots of console space in the front.

    - Stephanie R

    Ford escape. Safe, reliable, family vehicle.

    2017 Ford Escape S

    This is a great car for a mom of one or two children. The kids car seats fit comfortably in the back. A double stroller is also easy stored in the trunk. It drives well and has great gas mileage. I really enjoy this car as it is safe for the whole family
