Escape (2010 and older) MSRP: $ 21060.00
Loading Please Wait...


Description:
The Ford Escape is a 4-door, 5-passenger sport-utility, and lead the small SUV class back when it was first introduced in 2001. Although changes have continued to be made to the Escape over the last ten years, its exterior and interior designs are looking dated compared to the competition.

The XLS FWD is equipped with a standard 2.5-liter, I4, 171-horsepower engine that achieves 22-mpg in the city and 28-mpg on the highway. A 5-speed manual transmission with overdrive is standard. The Limited Hybrid 4WD is equipped with a standard 2.5-liter, I4, 153-horsepower, hybrid engine that achieves 29-mpg in the city and 27-mpg on the highway. A variable speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard.

The Ford Escape gets good fuel economy with its standard 4-cylinder engine and it offers a long list of high tech features and options such as the Ford SYNC entertainment system, programmable MyKey and active park assist, a system which allows the Escape to parallel park itself with very little driver involvement.

Expert Reviews: 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid
Expert Rating: 4 stars

"It’s popular with the American public for being an economical alternative to bigger, bulkier SUVs. In addition, the hybrid drivetrain is an innovative idea."

Review 2 of 300

Price Paid:  $28000.00 from Mullinax Ford, Mayfi

Year / Model Reviewed:
2010 Ford Escape

Strengths:
Roomy back area. Good Heater and A/C.

Weaknesses:
Transmission was erratic when first purchased, thought I got a lemon. Then got the recall and it still is awful. Jerks when you shift. Gas pedal doesn't respond to foot pressure adequately. Car shakes at a stop. Pops into gear on occasion when putting in reverse. The transmission is a complete mess. I have driven a Mercury Mariner with the smaller engine and it did not act like this at all. Now I am stuck with a balance of over $20,000 and a car I feel unsafe in and I feel like I am on a carnival ride. Not a pleasure to drive. Very, very disappointed in this piece of junk.

Summary:
Do not purchase this vehicle. You will waste your money and have much frustration.Shame on Ford for even selling this!

Review 3 of 300

Price Paid:  $23500.00 from Crossroads Ford, VA

Year / Model Reviewed:
2010 Ford Escape Ltd.

Strengths:
Mileage is pretty good for a vehicle of its size

Weaknesses:
Noisy, drives like a pickup

Summary:
My first Ford purchase in many years and boy, am I sorry. The engine noise from this vehicle (4 cyl.) is unbelievably loud, constant ticking sounds from engine compartment (which Ford tells me is "normal") and almost no insulation from outside noise. I would never recommend anyone purchase this vehicle.
