2010 Ford Escape XLT 3.0 Duratec V6 from North America


Reliable and fun


Throttle body (repaired under warranty).

Brake pads and rotors.

General Comments:

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

Great little SUV!


None, so far.

General Comments:

Great SUV if you don't need something too big, but like the "utility" of a sport utility. It handles and accelerates nicely, and is even a bit fun to drive.

The interior seems to be well made, with no squeaks or rattles. The only thing I would change is something many other newer cars are just as guilty of: hard plastic surfaces instead of padded. It's the only thing about the vehicle that makes it seem cheap.

Other than that, it's wonderfully styled, inside and out. It seems to have a lot of nice features for a car in its class, as well.

A pleasant car overall



General Comments:

This was a rental car for about 3 weeks.

Roomy interior, seats are comfortable.

Excellent engine power (and noise), the transmission works excellent and the car is surprisingly quick and fun to accelerate. Very good driving position and visibility.

Handles fine with somehow a European feeling, impressive for a car this size. The steering is slow to turn.

Good brakes. Very bumpy ride over potholes. Otherwise the ride is very smooth and comfortable.

You haven't driven many European cars, have you?

I do drive a Volvo, also had a Passat and had travelled in Europe in a small Renault. So I guess the answer is yes, sorry to disappoint your presumptions.
