Looking for feedback from those that have owned a ford Escape , good and bad. I have been looking at one for one of the kids and would like your input. I have read many reviews and done some homework but value you guys input. Thanks in advance
I bought a 2005 model used. That was in 09. Had it a couple years before someone ran out in front of me. Totaled it. I loved it. Wish I still had it
We've got a 2010 and really like it. No problems, thus far.

Jimmy, my Mom & Dad have had a new one for just under a year now and love it. It gets great gas milage so I might be pulling in your driveway with it about mid October.
I've worked on many of them at our shop and there a good car, I can't think of anything to kick them about.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.
We bought one in Feb of last year and have slightly over 12k on it. 4 cylinder auto with 4wd.get 27 mpg on the highway. Really like the traction control and stability system. The only problem we have had is that we live half mile down a dirt road and if you don't open the tailgate glass and clean around the edges every few weeks it will leak in the rain or when washing.

Ain't it fun living 1/2 mile down a dirt road. Ahh, the dust and the mud.

We have had an '09 since Christmas '08, bought her new. Four cylinder, two wheel drive. We really like it. You have to wind it up pretty tight to get it up to speed quickly (after all it's a four cylinder) but once you're up to cruising speed it just hums right along and the mileage has been good-around 28-29mpg.

Let us pray for farmers and all who prepare the soil for planting, that the seeds they sow may lead to a bountiful harvest.
My wife drives a 07 Escape. 4 cylinder, 2 wheel drive, around 28 mpg highway. Bought it in 08 with around 15,000 on it. It now has 95,000. The only thing that has happened is the paint is coming off the front plastic bumper. An easy fix just has not made it to the top of the list yet.

Sometimes, I amaze myself !
If you can not learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.
I can't speak to the mechanics on the Ford Escape, (and I'm not a Ford fan anyway), but I can tell you these little things are build pretty tough from a crash safety standpoint. A few years ago I rear-ended a stopped Escape at 50 mph, and both drivers--me and the driver of the Escape--walked away without a scratch or a bruise. Even though both vehicles were totalled, (I was driving a 6-month old Toyota Matrix), and it was smashed in the front all the way to the fire wall. The Escape was crumpled in the back, but otherwise the driver's compartment was completely intact.
For what it's worth.....see you soon!

I found this old Cub, Forgotten and Forlorn,
With pistons and valves frozen and worn.
Help from my buddies on Farmallcub.com,
And an engine from Ralph, (37’s the one),
Now ole Corky is running and back to life,
Much to the surprise of my dear, dear wife!
Thanks for the feedbackto all of you guys. We have brought one home and thanks Corky's for your input. that information gives me the added confidence i was looking for in this vehicle.
