I bought the 2009 Escape Limited Hybrid, with Navigation package, in July of 2008. I received it in September 2008 and after a full year I can only express that I have not been disappointed. This is the one new vehicle I have purchased without any disappointments after driving it off the lot. I have averaged 32.5 mpg per tankfull for the year. The Navigation system is really a great package. Even when I try to confuse the computer, it gets me to my destination. My bluetooth cell phone connects to the hands free interface without a glitch and allows me to voice activate my calls. I have no complaints about the ride comfort, steering, breaking, engine noise, payload, or trim detail. Nice job Ford. I drive in the Central Valley of California and get great mileage from the FWD Hybrid. I had to learn to slow down (60 mph on freeways) and accelerate gradually. The cruise control is very effective when using the hybrid feature, it just takes a little effort to adjust to to get the best mileage. The Economy Mode helps the A/C & Heating, but there is a loss in mpg when those are used. Any loss going uphills seems to be recovered coming back down the hills. I like the mileage I'm getting without much effort on my part. Some folks that really work at it report 50+ mpg with the 2009 Ford Escape Limited FWD Hybrid.

What a quite SUV. Sync is fantastic. Mileage has been better than stated. Handling and Performance (acceleration and breaking) of the V6 is outstanding. Parking is a breeze. The moon roof, is very nice and the 17 inch chrome wheels really make the appearance pop. I should have got the leather interior. It could us one more USB port either in the Glove box or in the console. I am very please with this car.
Love my Escape

After my Ford Aerostar died after 100,000+ miles, I wanted a replacement with good road clearance but small enough to park easily. I looked at the Honda Pilot but wanted to buy American. After renting an Escape,and finding it easy to handle, I bought one. The safety features are excellent and the "bells & whistles" (blue tooth, Syrius radio) are an added bonus. I hope to never have to buy another car, but I would definately go with the Escape if that need arises.

Ford did it right. Love the way it handles, the visibility, ride, you name it. Was sure I was going to buy a Honda but then I drove this and fell for it. The V6 has all the pick up I need and I don't miss my V8 yet. I hope it stays this way after I have had it for a while.
JUST LOVE IT,VERY HAPPY .

Great vehicle that for it's size I found comfortable and easy to drive. As a senior citizen I have driven the Escape on a few extended eight hour drives, that took a couple of days, and not once did I suffer from driver fatigue. Love the bluetooth features. Ample room inside the Escape for comfort and ease of entry or exit of senior citizens. Fun to drive! Easy to park! Excellent visibility for the driver. All around reliably fine vehicle for the price. My four cylinder more then ample for the job and gives great gas mileage. Worth the test drive.

I had leased a 2006 Mercury Mariner and after looking at seemingly every remaining SUV on the market, I decided to buy the 2009 Escape Limited. It was familiar to me after having the Mercury for 3 years, but the improvements made me very happy with my choice. The new V6 is a vast improvement, the Audiophile stereo is awesome (plus Bluetooth for my phone) and the interior seems more spacious. The gas mileage compared to larger truck-based SUVs does not hurt either. I will have to wait and see how it holds up over the next few years, but so far I am impressed and happy to have continued my streak of buying American for my last 4 vehicles.

Looking at purchasing an Escape this year. I like everything about it except one thing. It does not come with the Driver side Lumbar seat. I put on between 25,000 to 30,000 miles a year and that is a must feather that I am looking for and wanted to buy an American made product.
