Its cabin is one of the quietest in the class and it feels solid and substantial, a pleasant change from some of the bantamweight-feeling competition. And a long list of desirable and high-tech options can make the Escape feel like a competitor for some luxury-branded small SUVs.

"The handling is terrible. I drive aggressively because of the traffic I'm in and the brakes are constantly engaging when I'm trying to quickly change lanes or pulling off of faster roads into parking lots. The steering is too fast. I almost wrecked on the freeway because someone was merging into me and I reacted how I normally would in any other car and the car just jumped over too far into another lane and it was hard to get back into control. This type of steering would be great for a spor..."

Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
