Worst car I have ever owned.

Bought with 4000 miles for wife and she is afraid to drive due to the issues. Ford won't fix them. Remote start intermittent, turbo loud and leaking, center instruments go black while driving, all for tires require air every 30 days. Main dash instruments do a weird light malfunction every so often. Wont honor warranty and fix issues. Owe. Center drive console I am told was designed with no light build to know what gear you are in at night. Rotors needed replaced at 15,000 do to poor quality. All brakes still had half pad on them. Was told rotor material was poor.

Love my SUV, no more cars for me.

Love sitting position, feels safer than my car. It is so much easier to get in and out of the Escape. Love some of my automotive features.

Very nimble car
