2014 FORD ESCAPE
I bought this car because consumer reports and others rated it in gas mileage anove toyota and honda, it is a bust! Gas mileage is supposed to be 22-25 in town amd 28-32 hwy, NO WAY! 16-19 in town and max 23 hwy, have only had it 1 month and am selling it, will never purchase another ford, oh and the back seapt rides like a buck board.

2014 FORD ESCAPE
This Escape was purchased after a careless driver destroyed our last Escape with my wife and daughter-in-law in it. The previous Escape held up well and the ladies were only slightly injured in the horrific crash. The new 2014 Escape, our third Escape is doing well, we take it on trips to NW Michigan (300+miles) frequently and it is getting very good mileage and my wife is quite happy with her new car.

2014 FORD ESCAPE
Great size commuter vehicle with enough comfort features and cool trim to make you feel special driving it. 20mpg average, very quiet engine.My Ford Touch & Sync are great too.
I love this vehicle, so far it meets all my needs, and is very cute.
Even my 16yr old son thinks it looks cool although I have not let ANYONE else drive it yet.
I am also pleaded with the amount of options I was able to get for the price.
