Great sporty SUV

Had our 2018 Escape Titanium ecoboost with Tech Pack (bought new) for just over 4 years. No issues in all that time and just ticked over 40K Kms. The tech in the car is great. The cross traffic alert when reversing is very handy as is the blind spot mirrors. Ford servicing is very well priced and has 15K km/12 month intervals with free map upgrades and road service. Cabin is very comfortable with great airconditioning and heated seats. The panoramic sunroof is a nice feature. The petrol 2 litre turbo is responsive and well matched to the torque box auto and the AWD gives great handling. Long distance drives are comfortable. One day I will try out the self parking feature. Show details

Disappointing

After much research, I decided to buy the Escape.. within weeks noticed a noise coming from the rear of the vehicle. Brought it back to the dealership, they said nothing was wrong.. problems continued brought it back again, 'no problems with the car. Drove it out of the dealership, went around the corner and brought it back again, demanded that I talk to the service manager, he took it for a drive.. you need a new rear diff.. the car has only 7000kms on it.. all covered under warranty but not what you expect from a new car.. Show details

Love it

This car is just so easy to drive. I thought it might feel big and cumbersome stepping into it from a small car, but it feels so light and effortless. Loads of helpful extras like blind spot assist and it adjusts speed to match if car in front slows down. It has plenty of grunt and responds well when you need it to go quickly.
Only downside for me was the dealer plastering their name (ie. free advertising) over the car. Now that I have removed the stickers and got replacement numberplates to remove dealers name from them, it looks much better - note to potential Dominelli buyers!

Great all round soft roader

Probably the most underrated vehicle on the road. Great handling, fully specced, comfortable, and goes hard.

Highly recommend a test drive, in particular if stepping down from a 6/8 cylinder, as these have more than enough power.

Downsides:
- fuel consumption on the 2.0t averages at 13.1l/100km... mainly around town driving. Not great and likes premium.
- a knocking from the front right on full lock that the Ford dealer cant find a problem with so far.
- could use more rear leg space... but to be fair thats common to all in this size/ class. Show details
