2011 Ford Escape XLT 3.0 V6 from North America
Replaced the battery, a tail light bulb and the blower fan resister (only $40). That's it.
Really like it and would buy another in a second if Ford still offered it with the V6. The gas mileage is great - regularly gets 36 MPG (Imperial) 30 MPG (US) on the highway. Reliability has been fantastic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Please, there is no car on the road that will go for these many miles without lots of wear parts repairs. Do you indeed own the vehicle?

Why is it so hard to believe? Judging the mileage in the 7 years the reviewer owned it, sounds like the vehicle is mostly highway usage which is the best thing. A lot less wear and tear on the brakes, transmission and many other items.

I had a 2010 same era Edge SEL with 6. Sounds similar as far as repairs beyond the expected oil change, trans flush, hoses, tires, and 2 batteries stuff. I had issues with the air conditioning switch failing a couple times. Paint was lousy - chipped easily. But it always started and ran well. Mileage far beyond this one at 204,000 (same engine and trans). Great in winter and a great size as a crossover. People often were surprised it was a Ford; it looked like a Lexus from a distance. Maybe the dark grey. Good vehicle. The Escape is smaller, but might share maintenance similarities. Just keep the fluids changed and you should be fine.
