Not a bare bones Ford Escape.

My Ford Escape has not given me any problems. Performance is decent for this base model. I expect reliability to be good, if not excellent. I specifically chose the escape s (base model) because of its standard engine (2. 5 liter 4-cylinder).The interior is roomy and the drivers bucket seat is great for long distance drives. I did not experience any fatigue when I drove from TX to nm and co. As far as standard equipment is concerned, this is not a bare bones vehicle. The basic conveniences come standard (power windows and locks, and the base telematics from ford). There’s very few options you can order with the Escape s, but then again, I am content with what is available.

Sporty car fits all our needs!

We have an older Escape and have loved it. When it was time for an update I decided to get another Ford Escape. I love the sorry look and feel. It has plenty of room for groceries, sports equipment, grandkids etc. I love the features on the older Escape. In fact we decided to keep the older one as well for a commuter car for my husband. Hat way he does not have to drive the truck as far. The new car has sensors for the sides, back and front which are so helpful. I love the automated trunk door and “ kick to open” feature. It has great lumbar support and matches up with my phone for apple’s carplay. I get great gas Milagros and a smooth ride. I love it!

I have not had any issues with the Ford Escape thus far!

Some of my favorite features include the built in navigation system, remote starter and the keypad to lock and unlock my car without the use of my keys. I especially love the lock feature on hot summer days when I have to run into the store but don't want to turn my car off only to have to get back into it and wait for the a/c to cool the car down again. With the outside locks I can leave the car running and simply lock and unlock it when I return. I also love the number of cup holders the Escape has. My last car only had two and it may seem like a silly thing to look for in a car, but It's definitely something I appreciate! The Escape also gets great mileage.
