My Escape (Es-cop-ey!) by An MSN Autos Consumer on 04/22/2008. Trim: 2007 Ford Escape XLS 4WD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I'm short (5'3") so the style fits me very well. I typically use a lot of storae space in the cargo area, but have had no issues fitting everything I need. 20K miles in the first year, with no major issues (I did have to have the blinker/light switch replaced, but it was covered under warranty).
Cons: Taller people have issues fitting "well" in the driver seat. It sits more like a car than a truck. The back seats fold down, but you are often left with 2 inches of space you cannot utilize. The front cup holders are too close together to fit two cups without spilling. Full time 4WD hinders gas mileage (19 highway, 15 city), but still is acceptable.
Overall review: Overall, I love my escape. I would like to have 2 wheel drive for gas mileage, but I have no complaints. It has served me well!!!!
