Ford Escape — The Escape is fun to try around town and on longer trips. The outside is sporty, which I love, and the inside has many little extras that make the SUV fun to drive. I love the removable buckets in the center console, the SYNC system, all of the buttons on the steering wheel, and the glass that pops open in the back. I'm getting about 22 MPG in the city which is great and the car handles very well. I love my Escape!

Love It — Performance is great, it will go anywhere i want it to. It is built very well and has plenty of storage. Apperance is everything and it speaks for its self, It is actually now bad on gas it gets around 23 miles a gallon. This is the funnest car to drive.

Ford Escape! — The 2009 Ford Escape Limite V6 was great on any type of road and had very easy handling even in the winter months. After some use, the breaks wore down fairly quickly. It was a very safe car with all around airbags and a higher up frame, safer on the roads. Good bass and sound system!

Very Good Car. — plenty of room for car seats etc. nice looking. very dependable, decent mileage, but not great , 21 MPG combined. v6 has lot of power. 4x4 works perfectly, automatic on slick spots, snow rain, etc. good radio system. don't like the sun glare off of the console. should be fixed.

My First Suv — So far I love my Escape.. I have only had it for a few months really..bought in october, no repairs so far, it tells me when I have to get my oil changed, and it has smart 4wheel drive I don't have to do anything really. It has Sync which has spoiled the crap out of me too

2009 Ford Escape Xlt — The acceleration is suprisingly quick for being a four cylinder engline. Braking is great, even in the snow. Gas mileage is great, about 21 mpg in the city in the winter, can't wait to see how it is in the summer. The features are awesome. It comes with 6 months fre Sirius, moonroof, great sounding stereo and speakers, power windows, doors, and locks and much more. It's a great vehicle and fun to drive, definitely recommended.
