Very nice road car, handling and acceleration are outstanding. Have 15k miles in 7 months, only routine maintenance so far, oil change and tire rotations. There is a lot of torque steer under hard acceleration, but easy to control. Very comfortable sport seats AC & Heated. Love the remote start here in AZ to cool car down. Tons of room in back seat and cargo area. Mileage on highway averages about 29 mpg with cruise set at 70 mph, not too bad. Very stealthy, don't see to many out here.
brief timing with car....comfortable, rides very well. The appearance is beautiful, interior too. Very nice and enjoy it, however if I could change something I would have a seat adjuster put in on driver side, may seem small or overlooked, but between my fiancée and I we are always moving the seat. 6 months
Love this car more than enough power maybe to much as every time I look I'm too fast. extremely comfortable and plenty of room for 7. economy could be a little better as I'm getting about 21 mpg over all maybe better if not as heavy footed. I have no idea what all the previous complaints about Ford sync are because we have had no problem at all
Consistent issues with my Edge and it's only 2 years old. The Sync system only works properly about half the time and have had multiple issues with steering pump & hose. Most expensive car I've ever purchased, has all the bells and whistles and the most problems I've ever had.
I have a '14 Escape SE. It has a 1.6 turbo engine. It gets 27 mpg town 32 highway. It has all the options I want. I really like the car but there is one glitch that Ford refuses to correct. A Ford Rep. even told me, "nothing is perfect, deal with it". I have written Ford, even to their president and got no response. The problem is the non dimming dash lights at night. It is suppose to be automatic but it must be manually dimmed every time the car is started at night. How silly is this?
Very Very Fast 2.0 eco boost and will get you in and out of traffic with no problems. Has panoramic roof which is awesome but the cloth cover flaps if windows open. The sony sound system is GREAT you will only get 25-26 mpg on hwy doing 75-80 mph. I am not crazy about the back lights look that is why 3.5 stars. It is like driving a sports car but a suv. Myford touch and sync no problems. Handles great. I came out of an 05 Explorer 4x4 into the Escape, much faster, but I do miss the room
I have never been so impressed with a new vehicle. The Flex has comfort,quiet ride,great gas mileage, and all the features standard that others charge extra for on a new vehicle. It has plenty of power plus so versatile when it comes to passengers and cargo. The only options I have are sync, trailer hitch, roof rails, and second row club seats. It list for 32k and I bought it for 24k. It is an amazing first Ford for me.
