My dad's Escape was purchased on November 2013 and he has driven 6,490 miles as of today giving him 18.2 mpg. My aunt's Escape was purchased on October 2013 and she has driven 5.878 miles as of today giving her 21.5 mpg. I guess my aunt's mpgs are a little better because she recently took to almost 1,000 mile trips. Both are S models. Even though my dad's Escape has not had any long distance trips he drives more than my aunt. I already took both Escapes to have their first oil changed at 3,000 miles. On both Escapes the mechanic had to tighten the bolt that holds the handle that is used to close the hatch. Have you had problem with handle?
