Fun To Drive — This escape has not only saved me money in fuel mileage it is fun to drive. I have no doubt this smaller version of the Explorer will be the car for me from here on out. It handles great, is comfortable to ride in and the fuel economy makes it an all around great automobile. I would recommend this car to any new car owner as well as someone looking for a smaller SUV type.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas mileage, great cargo space

Cons: If you had to be nitpicky, then the smaller crossover doesn't have the same towing capacity as a full-size SUV, so if you plan to haul a huge camping trailer on a regular basis you might want to look elsewhere. The Ford Escape also doesn't offer more than five seats, which means if your family is looking to push past that level of accommodations then a minivan is probably a safer bet.

Reliable And Dependable. — All in all for the price and the dependability good buy. The inside is not at all good for moving with my family in it as far as the cargo space is concerned, but for a beach car this does the trick.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Well all in all a good little SUV, price was good and the fuel is also pretty good. My 3 kiddos and my wife like it and we all fit in it so that is a plus in itself.

Cons: I am a mechanic with about 8 years of experience, and this car is really giving it to me. I seem to be working on it almost everyday.

Good Suv — very nice vehicle. city mileage okay (16mpg) great highway mileage (27 mpg) at best averaging around 21-22 mpg. handles better than most cars. really tight turning radius. decent acceleration and decent brakes. vehicle has 204,000 miles and still running strong. auto 4WD is nice but after driving most of its life on gravel 4WD trys to kick in at random times just a small annoyance though

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good gas mileage and great handling for a 4WD

Cons: would like a little more room

My Twuck! — I love my truck. It's had coil pack problems but for a car with 140k+ miles on it, that's not bad at all. Just tried out my 4wd in the recent snow, and love it! I would buy this car over and over and over again.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Lots of power and a beautiful model

Cons: Stupid coil packs!

01 Escape Xlt — I own an 01 Escape V6 FWD, LOVE it so far, drives great, handles great. I bought it from an owner that mostly kept the car in California so I can't attest for body integrity too much, but the car is rust free after almost 9 years. the V6 works great for towing and doesnt really need to downshift until you hit a long hill while towing, I tow a pop up camper about 2500 lbs, handles great with or without a trailer and I have no complaints so far, have not drove it in the winter yet, I think it will do just fine. as for fuel economy, I have got as high as 29 mpg on an all highway trip! with mixed highway and city driving I average around 24, my lowest was 18, towing through hills which still doesn't seem bad to me. Great dependable vehicle overall so far! very practical and easy to maintain.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Pretty much everything

Cons: Didn't get one sooner?

2001 Escape Xlt — The car of compact SUVs, I really loved this Escape. Extremely comfy, room to spare, and performance that wasn't all that bad. It had a few issues in the time I had it, but I definitely can't say it was horribly unreliable. It even did pretty well off road. Man, i need another one...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfy, roomy, fuel milage, many options avail.

Cons: sub par reliability, too many look alikes out there.

Pros: b/c its fun

Cons: none

Escape — This car is first car. It is a red shade of color. It drives pretty well. The inside of the car could be better than cloth. It is a fun car to drive because the petals are not that sensative

Pros: Its my car

Cons: Cloth seats
