2011 Ford Escape (is that what's wanted?)
This car has done a good job in the winter, and is nice-looking. Like all SUVs, the back gets dirty with any kind of moisture. Setting the clock is not simple, and the description in the owner's manual is not correct. The clear plastic dashboard cover reflects the sunlight into the driver's eyes! I have inserted a thin piece of cardboard to correct this. It covers the mileage indicator. The viewing panel to the right of the dashboard is hard to read, especially when the sun is shining. The RPM and MPH indicators take up too much valuable space; digital readouts would be much better. The 60 on the MPH looks like 50. the switch for the headlights is complicated, and can inadvertently be turned on by the knee of the exiting driver. Once I exited the car hurriedly, turning on the parking lights, and not hearing the dings, had a dead battery the next morning. the velchro-like material on the backs of the rear seats are practically impossible to clean after unloading brush from the woods. As with any SUV, the rear seat belts are confusing. The MPG is as expected, but more would be better. Roof rack is helpful, but roofI window got clogged when I carried hay on the rood, and even after cleaning by the dealer, I get wet in the car wash. I wish it weren't there. "Don't know" should be an option for the chart below. Also below - USED vs PRE-OWNED?
