Everything it was advertised to be. After we had this car for a year, we bought a second on used and love it too.

We like that the 2012 Escape still feels like a SUV not a flimsy cross over like the new Escape does. The V6 has lots of power with respectable fuel economy.

My car is great! Bought it because my Ford Explorer was stolen. It's a great smaller SUV and gets pretty good gas mileage too- 28MPG on the highway. We have two kids and a dog so space is key! I also don't feel like I'm driving a truck which is nice too as some SUV's are gigantic. My Escape doesn't have lots of bells and whistles so nothing really to point out. However, I love listening to my Pandora on my way to work in the morning so the USB plug has been key.

I really like this car. It fits well with my lifestyle (the High Rockies.) It's comfortable, has great power going up and down the mountains to Denver, good room for my large husband (former football player and powerlifter), nice amenities (sound system and individual climate controls), and better gas mileage than my Jeep Cherokee had. I got a vinyl bra installed immediately to protect from rock damage. Watch out for too much "chrome", since it's only an application over plastic and will probably buckle over time if you don't have a garage to keep it in.
