Escape — It starts faster than anyone, stops very nicely, and has an amazing turning radius. Its not top heavy. Its big enough for my soccer, horseback riding, and tennis gear but small enough to fit itno almost any parking spot. My dad's lincold MKZ is a bigger car but this one is way more fun to drive!

Pros: great turning radius

Cons: stops at 110

Ford Escape — A little heavy on the gas, but after all, it is a truck! It's the only thing that's going to get me through winter! I can't wait to try the traction control in the snow. It did work very nicely on a bit of dirt on the road. Gas consumption will be higher in the winter I'm guessing!

Pros: Roomy, and powerful,

Cons: Sirius radio needs features improvement.

Ford Escape — Overall good, good ride with minimal bumps. Great addition with the GPS. could use a better engine because it can only reach a maximum speed of 90. good MGP rating. good caban space for transporting things. overall a fun car to drive. could be helpful for the break petal and gas petal to be the same level.

Pros: good MGP, excelent GPS.

Cons: Better Engine, difference between break adn gas pedal.

I Love My Car!! — This is the best car I've ever owned. It's an SUV but it's not huge; it holds what I need it to hold and doesn't guzzle gas like the bigger SUVs. I love it!

Pros: I love the look!  It's a sharp vehicle!

Cons: Although it gets better gas mileage than most SUVs, it's still isn't as good as I would like it to be.

Escape From My Escape — I am trying to be fair about this but I can't wait to sell it. I have the TSB Escape special. This one has had them all. Rebuilt transmission at 25k miles, terrible staining on the interior seats from nothing, rear hatch button that was a pain to repair by my uncle who is a ford mechanic and now I believe the rear differential. It is a nice looking vehicle though when looking at the exterior. I am a woman who wants bells and whistles that are not indicator lights from something going wrong!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Has been pretty reliable.

Cons: The seats and the staining. I swear condensation leaves white ring marks. Hate them. Not very good gas mileage for being a 4 cyl.

Good For Basic Getting Around — I bought this vehicle used with 72K miles.. It now has105K miles. I like the vehicle but it is the low end of the class. Very chintzy interior. The pickup is very poor but moves very well on the highway. The seat fabric is terrible and can't be cleaned and they are extremely hard . All in all it's good transportation. 7/14 Recent call back # 14S05 - Steering

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Size, handling, mileage, looks

Cons: Hard seats, very unconfortable
