Hello, I am looking for my next vehicle. I have really taken a liken to the newer Escapes, but have been looking online and seeing a multitude of problems. CD Player issues, Paint Peeling, etc. I was just wondering if you all would recommend an Escape. I've never owned a Ford but this seems like the type of vehicle that would fit my needs personally and for my business. This would be my first SUV type, moving up from a 01 Dodge Stratus R/T. Just curious as to what you all thought. Are these vehicles worth the problems that I'm seeing, or are the newer models better? Seems like the majority of the issues I'm reading about are between 03 and 05 models.
