2013 Escape Owner Reviews (4)
Worst SUV on the Planet !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Worst SUV ever!!!!!!!!!!! Bought my Escape SEL/AWD brand new push start technology package, rear hatch release sensor, auto start, ambient lighting, heated front seats pretty loaded. Letâs start with the obvious issue ************* when you are driving it. This happened 5 times in 2 years once pulling into the driveway (husband was driving) ok letâs chalk that up to a fluke. The 2nd time it stalled I was pulling into my work parking lot so far each time it was taken right back to dealership and left there for them to FIX every time within hours I was called to say they could not duplicate the problem so hence no found issue nothing done.. The 3rd time it stalled was on Highway Route 1 in stop and go traffic I almost got back ended so again right back to the dealership mind you this is all in the first year and a half of owning it. This time it stayed there for almost a week and the dealer said it had a recall so they would update the electronics (still however not able to duplicate the problem) and asked me if I was sure I was not turning it off while driving it??? REALLY??? REALLY??? YES I AM POSITIVE I AM NOT TURNING OFF MY CAR WHILE IN THE MIDDLE OF DRIVING IT !!!!!!!!!!! Received the call it was ready and to come get it. Ok off I go back to the dealership hopeful all will be fixed and I will have no more issues. Oh was I mistaken I left the dealership and headed down Route 295 to pick up a friend HUGE MISTAKE !!!!!! about 5 miles into my drive in stop and go traffic yep you guessed it STALLED AGAIN!!!!!!! At this point I am losing my mind and call to have them come pick up the death trap on the side of the road. Again no problem when they get it back to the dealership. Now I am still shaken up but willing to take it again. This time for a few months its ok I am optimistic that all is better and the issue is resolved. Oh how wrong I wasâ¦â¦. The last time it decided it didnât want to continue driving it stalled while I was making a left hand turn into a shopping center in the middle of a very busy 4 lane road I almost caused a several car accident thank goodness I was used to the stalling and threw it in neutral started in and floored it into the lot just missed getting t-boned but a second. This was it for me it took me over an hour to stop shaking, crying and being able to breathe again. The escape was traded by the end of the week. Since getting rid of it I have found out a lot of other people have had the same issue with accidents due to their escape stalling while driving it. I will never own another Ford product as long as I live. Ford is aware of the Issue and is being charged by the NHSA for not warning consumers of this huge problem with the Escape & Focus. There is a class action Law Suit also due to Ford not taking responsibility. So if you are looking into this SUV please do a lot of home work. I feel truly lucky that this suv did not kill me while I owned it.
Home Run Ford!

We bought our 2013 Ford Escape 3 months ago and have 2900 miles on it. We wanted to buy American and support a company that did not use and abuse the American people's tax dollars. The 2.0L EcoBoost has better pickup than our friend's V6 Sorento. I went to the dealer convinced I would be buying the Buick Encore but after driving both, the Escape won hands down. It is quiet, comfortable, and the controls are easily accessible. I still have to learn how to use the MyFordSync better, but that is my learning curve. The only drawback which one would expect given the variability of driving styles and terrains, is that I thought I might get a little better gas mileage. However, I did get the bigger engine for a reason. I just love this SUV...home run by Ford!

We purchased the new escape for my wife. She loves it so far!!! 21.5 overall gas mileage at 1800 miles. 19 inch wheels make the ride smoother than our 2008 escape. Plenty of acceleration with the 2.0L. Slight raddle inside drivers door. In sync can get confusing. The lights and looks are awesome for us. We are in our early sixties. Purchased our first ford in 1973 and have never had a major problem with any of them over the years.
just got my 2013 Escaoe
