Would HIGHLY recommend this vehicle!
This car is quick, drives well, is easy to park and great in the snow.
We bought it for our teenager and chose it because of it's high safety rating. It has the highest safety rating of all the small SUVs we researched.
It handles extremely well in the snow/ice. Our son had a two day driving course where they were deliberately put into a skid. The second day of the course, the instructor had our son drive his (the instructor's) car because they were having trouble getting the Escape to skid.
It's very quick on the start (not the best thing for a teenager). It has been very reliable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
