When was the last time you read about an issue with the 1.6 that hasn't been addressed many months ago?
Have 5 2012 Escapes in my fleet, and one 2013 SEL now. My drivers love the performance and everything else about the car. Only issues have been oil leaks - the left front CVJ boot tore, allowing oil to leak out to the wheel. Ford replaced it free, of course. While there, the dealer noticed some seepage around the something or other cover, and fixed that too. I've been buying Escapes for my fleet since 2006, and have been extremely satisfied. Never had a bad one. 15 Escapes later, still think they are the best Courier vehicle around. Depreciation is minimal, performance is awesome, and the drivers love how they fit. Even had one Hybrid. Actually got better mileage than a Camry Hybrid I had.
Refused to buy a 1.6 one back in December and am still very happy I decided to run the other way. My Tuscon has been a great vehicle and we are very happy with it and it's great warranty. So far, nothing to go back to dealer for except it's first gratis oil change.
Like the looks of the Escape but after what i read about that engine, no way would I ever think to purchase one!
