2010 Ford Escape XLT 3.0 Duratec V6 from North America
Reliable and fun
Throttle body (repaired under warranty).
Brake pads and rotors.
It's been a great little SUV. It's just the right size, and gets decent MPG. It drives nicely and even feels a little sporty. The stereo (mine has a factory subwoofer) isn't bad. It's the only factory stereo I haven't upgraded in a vehicle I've owned. Lots of storage in the center console, and comfortable on longer trips, too.
Could use some rear legroom, though. And the cloth seats stain easily if they get wet, even with just water. A carpet cleaner with an upholstery attachment works great to solve that. So do cheap seat covers.
I don't have any major complaints, and have only had to do routine maintenance to it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
