The Ford Escape is a compact crossover SUV that arrived as a 2001 model. It sits between the Ford EcoSport and Ford Edge in the manufacturer’s current lineup. When first released, it was developed as part of a partnership with Mazda, so it debuted at the same time as the Mazda Tribute. Since 2001, more than five million Escape SUVs have been sold.
After examining all of the data, we determined which Escape model years are the best and which are the worst.
If you plan to buy a used Ford Escape, you want this research to ensure you get the best deal. If you are the current owner of this Ford SUV, we recommend using this information to determine if it’s worth spending the money on repairs or if it’s time to make an escape plan.
We pull the data from thousands of FIXD car scanners installed in Ford Escape SUVs. This reliability data is paired with survey information from owners, along with published reports on fuel economy, recalls, KBB values, and safety ratings, to ensure you get the most accurate information.
|Best Years||Why?||Worst Years||Why?|
Exceptional reliability ratings, good safety scores, low chance of expensive repairs, great fuel economy rating
Low reliability scores, high cost of ownership, below average safety scores
Highest owner satisfaction scores, low cost of ownership
High chance of mechanical failure, low resale value, poor fuel economy
Good reliability scores, minimal chance of expensive repairs
Increased likelihood of mechanical failures, reduced fuel economy (gas models), below average safety scores
Decent owner survey score, minimal repair and maintenance cost
Elevated cost of ownership, higher chance of expensive transmission and brake repairs

Engine Reliability Score – Over The Years
Our detailed chart shows you the average reliability of Ford Escape models through the lens of two different factors:
- The FIXD Reliability score (Green line) – this data is sourced from the amount of check engine lights thrown by Ford Escape models during every 12,000 miles of driving (1 year’s worth of driving).
- The Owner Reliability score (Gray line) from Ford Escape owners we’ve surveyed.
The scale of our charts is between 1 and 10. The lowest the Ford can score is 1, while the highest is 10. Average scores are shown as a 5.
While the information isn’t perfect, you can see a lot of similar patterns. On the other hand, keep your eye out for larger gaps between the Fixd and Owner scores. It normally reveals that the owners may be overly loyal to the brand or that our FIXD data wasn’t pooled from enough Escape owners for that model year. That’s why it’s important to evaluate all of the data from the other charts in conjunction with this one.
Generally, the newer Ford Escape models are going to be seen as the most reliable. For the most part, that’s right. You are usually going to get more life out of a newer Ford Escape than an older one, as long as it is well taken care of. But, there are a few exceptions to this rule.
Before you set out to buy a used SUV, evaluate these Ford Escape reliability scores to bypass any models unworthy of your money. If you already had a Ford model year in mind, we recommend jumping ahead to the appropriate section down below to learn more.
Please also take a minute to research the most common reasons for the Check Engine Lights on Ford models before you decide if you want to drive this brand.
NHTSA Safety Score – Over The Years
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) publishes crash test scores for the majority of passenger vehicles, giving us the average safety score for each Escape model year. To illustrate the data, we put it in this chart, making it easier for you to pick a safe SUV for your family.
The Green line shows you the average safety rating for every Ford Escape model year. The Gray line reveals the average rating found from all of the vehicles we’ve sourced the NHTSA data for.
Sadly, the Ford Escape has many models ranking below average. What’s most alarming is the 2011 and 2012 model years that fall very short of normal.
To get cheap car insurance for your used vehicle, you want an SUV with high safety scores.
If you live in one of the states listed below, we can show you the cheapest vehicles to insure in yours.

MPG – Over The Years
The Ford Escape is a smaller SUV, so it’s expected that the fuel economy will be good. Yet, you have to be careful which model you buy, as some aren’t as good as others. Our graph shows you the average Ford Escape fuel economy by model year. The Green line displays the average mpg for gas-powered models, while the Gray line illustrates the average mpg for hybrid models.
If you can afford a hybrid model (2005-2012 or 2020-newer), you are definitely going to get further on a tank of fuel. However, if you prefer a gas model, you can’t go wrong with the 2020 or newer models.
Current Market Value of All Ford Escape Years & Cost Per Year to Repair and Maintain Each
The best way to figure out what you might spend to maintain and repair an SUV is to look at what other owners report. The more reliable a vehicle is, the less you can expect to spend on repairs because there will be fewer mechanical failures. Keep in mind that every time you take a vehicle to the shop, you also have to account for your downtime.
When you want to sell your Ford Escape, the repair costs also play a role because reliability affects resale value. Your newer SUV with no mechanical problems is going to sell for much more than an older model riddled with defects. Yet, not every new SUV has a low cost of ownership, so it’s important to examine the data carefully.
As you look at the two Ford Escape models with similar resale values and reliability scores, consider choosing the newer one. You typically receive better features and additional road life without putting out too much extra money.
Our chart shows the model years based on the average mileage reported by our survey participants. To determine KBB value, the mileage is a huge factor. For that reason, it’s imperative that you run your own KBB value reports before trying to buy or sell a used vehicle.
When shopping for a used Ford Escape, it’s important to keep in mind that not all vehicles are cared for equally. To protect yourself from lemons, take along a FIXD Sensor on your test drive. FIXD connects to a free app on your smartphone to tell you more about the vehicle you’re checking out, including check engine lights and other hidden issues that the owner or dealership may be attempting to hide.

The Best Years of the Ford Escape
For our top choices, we relied heavily on the FIXD Reliability score but weighed it carefully against the other information, such as the Owner Reliability score, fuel economy ratings, safety scores, and other data. We also dive deeper into the most common diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), as well as the recalls listed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), giving you a complete picture of every model.
2020-2021 Ford Escape
FIXD Reliability Score: 9-10/10
Owner Reliability Score: 8-9/10
KBB Value: $19,316-$21,653
Fuel Economy: 28 mpg (gas), 40 mpg (hybrid)
Annual Maintenance/Repair: $500-$1,000
Safety Rating: 4.8/5
The 2020 and 2021 Ford Escape make up the 4th generation. These SUVs are among the most reliable, have superior safety scores, and aren’t prone to any major mechanical problems.
The FIXD Reliability score on the 2020 Ford Escape is 9 out of 10, while the 2021 achieves a perfect 10 out of 10. Additionally, the Owners Reliability score remains the same on the 2020 Escape with a 9 out of 10, but the 2021 model earns an 8 out of 10.
The NHTSA crash testing score for the two Escape models is 4.8 (out of 5). These scores are well above average, proving this is a great family SUV.
The ownership costs are not as accurate as we would like. The 2020 model has an average $500 ranking, while the 2021 shows $1,000 a year. Yet, neither of these SUVs suffers from any major mechanical problems, according to owners, and there’s still warranty coverage for some. The Ford warranty covers new vehicles with a 3-year/36,000-mile limited warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
The most common issue for these two years of the SUV is the Evaporative Emission Control System Leak – Small (P0456) trouble code. Either one could also struggle with the EVAP Flow During a Non-Purge Condition (P0496) code too. Luckily, both of these EVAP system problems would be covered under the factory warranty.
The only downside that we’ve found with these models has to do with NHTSA information. The 2020 Ford Escape is subject to 11 recalls and one investigation, while the 2021 Ford Escape has eight recalls and one investigation.
2017-2019 Ford Escape
FIXD Reliability Score: 6-9/10
Owner Reliability Score: 9-10/10
KBB Value: $12,793-$21,653

The 2017-2019 Ford Escape models are part of the 3rd generation. These SUVs continue to have high reliability scores, safety ratings and don’t suffer from any major issues.
The FIXD Reliability score on the 2017 Ford Escape is 6 out of 10, while the 2018 shows 7 out of 10, and the 2019 Escape gets a 9 out of 10. Additionally, the Owners Reliability score on the 2017 and 2018 Escape SUVs is 9 out of 10, but the 2019 model earns a perfect 10 out of 10.
The NHTSA crash testing score for the three Ford Escape models is 4.6 (out of 5). While this is lower than the newer models, it’s still above average.
Of the three models, the 2019 has the lowest cost of repairs and maintenance ($472). However, the 2017 and 2018 aren’t bad either, at $587 and $621, respectively. As far as any enhanced possibility of major repairs, the only elevated chance is a slight risk with the 2017 model and AC/heat repairs.
The 2017 Ford Escape shows a higher chance of dealing with the Unable to Bleed Up Fuel Tank Vacuum (P1450) code. Additionally, the 2018 and 2019 models have a higher instance of the EVAP Flow During a Non-Purge Condition (P0496) DTC.
2013-2015 Ford Escape
FIXD Reliability Score: 4-7/10
Owner Reliability Score: 7-8/10
KBB Value: $5,809-$7,166
Fuel Economy: 25 mpg (gas)
Annual Maintenance/Repair: $565-$883
Safety Rating: 4.4/5
These three Escape models make up the beginning of the 3rd generation. The reliability scores are still good, ownership cost is down, but the safety scores fall below average.
The FIXD Reliability score on the 2013 Ford Escape is 4 out of 10, while the 2014 shows 6 out of 10, and the 2015 Escape gets a 7 out of 10. Additionally, the Owners Reliability score on the 2013 Escape SUV is 7 out of 10, but the 2014 and 2015 models earn an 8 out of 10.
The NHTSA crash testing score for these three Ford Escape models is 4.4 (out of 5). Sadly, this is slightly below the average, so it is a small strike against these models.
As far as the cost of ownership, the 2013 is ranked the lowest at $565 a year. From there, the 2015 SUV takes second place at $632, and the 2014 averages $883. Our research indicates a slightly elevated risk of expensive transmission repairs with the 2013 Escape, as well as higher brake repairs with both the 2013 and 2015 models.
The 2013 Ford Escape deals with the Cylinder Head Overtemperature Protection Active (P1299) trouble code. The other two models also show a higher chance of the EVAP Flow During a Non-Purge Condition (P0496) DTC.
2013 Ford Escape models have 17 recalls and four investigations. In comparison, the 2014 Ford Escape shows 15 recalls and two investigations, and the 2015 Ford Escape has seven recalls and two investigations.
2003 Ford Escape
FIXD Reliability Score: 1/10
Owner Reliability Score: 5/10
KBB Value: $2,521
Fuel Economy: 20 mpg (gas)
Annual Maintenance/Repair: $667
Safety Rating: 4.17/5
Even though the 2003 Ford Escape model is older, it stands out from the others in the first generation. Ownership costs are low and it doesn’t seem to struggle with a lot of expensive repairs.
The FIXD Reliability score on the 2003 Ford Escape is only 1 out of 10. However, the Owners Reliability score on the 2003 Escape SUV is 5 out of 10, so it’s still worth looking at.
The NHTSA crash testing score on this Escape model is 4.17 (out of 5). While this seems low, it is above average for the year.
For how old this Escape model is, it’s refreshing to see such a low cost of ownership. Yet, there is a slightly elevated risk of expensive brake and AC/heat repairs.
This Escape model does seem to struggle with the Misfire Detected on Startup – First 1000 Revolutions (P0316) code. If a coil on plug replacement is necessary, you may spend $54 to $163. It could also deal with the Exhaust Gas Recirculation “A” Control Circuit Malfunction (P0403) code.
There are nine recalls and eight investigations with the 2003 Ford Escape. However, this doesn’t seem that much different from even some of the newer models.
The Worst Years of the Ford Escape
2004-2008 Ford Escape
FIXD Reliability Score: 1-3/10
Owner Reliability Score: 5-7/10
KBB Value: $2,289-$3,475
Fuel Economy: 20-21 mpg (gas), 27-30 (hybrid)
Annual Maintenance/Repair: $632-$1,021
Safety Rating: 4-4.75/5
These older models haven’t received great FIXD Reliability scores and all tend to have a higher chance of mechanical problems that could lead to expensive repairs.
The FIXD Reliability score on the 2004 and 2005 Ford Escape is only 1 out of 10. The 2006 Ford Escape earns a 2 out of 10, while the 2007 and 2008 Ford Escape have a ranking of 3 out of 10. However, the Owners Reliability score on the 2004 Escape SUV is 5 out of 10, while the 2008 earns a 6 out of 10 and the other three models are ranked at 7 out of 10.
The NHTSA crash testing score on 2004 Ford Escape is 4.75 (out of 5). The other four models have earned a ranking of 4 (out of 5).
2004 and 2006 Ford Escape models have a higher instance of expensive engine repairs, while the 2006, 2007, and 2008 models suffer from transmission issues. Expensive brake repairs are common with the 2008 Escape, and the 2005, 2006, and 2008 Escape tend to have more AC/heat repairs that are costly. Additionally, the 2004 and 2005 models can deal with expensive fuel system repairs, so none of these models are immune to expensive repairs. Based on our estimates, the 2008 model may be the least expensive to own ($632 a year) versus the 2005 Escape ( $1,021). The other three models fall between $734 and $813, so they are closely related.
The 2004 Ford Escape does seem to struggle with the Misfire Detected on Startup – First 1000 Revolutions (P0316) code. The other four Escape SUVs show a higher instance of the On Board Diagnostic System Readiness Test Not Complete (P1000) trouble code.
The 2004 Ford Escape includes eight recalls and six investigations, while the 2005 Ford Escape has five recalls and three investigations. The 2006 Ford Escape shows six recalls and two investigations, while the 2007 Ford Escape has four recalls and three investigations, and the 2008 Ford Escape has six recalls and four investigations.
2001-2002 Ford Escape
FIXD Reliability Score: 1/10
Owner Reliability Score: 3-9/10
KBB Value: $1,955-$2,248
Fuel Economy: 20 (gas)
Annual Maintenance/Repair: $417-$750
Safety Rating: 4.17/5
In its first couple of years on the market, the Ford Escape didn’t fare well. FIXD Reliability scores reflect the amount of expensive repair bills these two SUVs can face.
The FIXD Reliability score on the 2001 and 2002 Ford Escape is only 1 out of 10. But, the Owners Reliability score on the 2001 Escape SUV is a 3 out of 10, while the 2002 shows an unusual score of 9 out of 10.
The NHTSA crash testing score on 2001 and 2002 Ford Escape is 4.17 (out of 5). This is an above-average score for the model years.
While the cost of ownership may not be too severe among these two models, there are a few possible issues that could lead to expensive repairs. 2001 models tend to suffer from expensive engine repairs, while the 2002 Escape is known for transmission issues. Considering the extremely low KBB value, neither of these SUVs is going to be worth putting too much money into.
The 2001 Ford Escape has a higher chance of the Lack of HO2S21 Switch – Sensor Indicates Lean (P1151) code. If this repair requires the plenum gasket, you may spend $168 to $321. With the 2002 Ford Escape, there’s also an elevated instance of the Ignition Coil “A” Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction (P0351) code. Our research shows that a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) may be required, costing $1,021 to $1,505, making this SUV not always worth fixing.
2009-2012 Ford Escape
FIXD Reliability Score: 4-7/10
Owner Reliability Score: 7-8/10
KBB Value: $3,770-$5,030
Fuel Economy: 22 (gas), 30-31 (hybrid)
Annual Maintenance/Repair: $488-$643
Safety Rating: 3-4.3/5
The problem with these model years is the low safety ratings and the increased chance of mechanical trouble.
The FIXD Reliability score on the 2009 and 2010 Ford Escape is only 4 out of 10. The 2011 Escape earns 5 out of 10, and the 2012 model jumps up to 7 out of 10. As far as the Owners Reliability score, the 2011 Ford Escape earns a 7 out of 10, while the other three models are rated at 8 out of 10.
Most alarming, the 2011 and 2012 Ford Escape only earn a 3 (out of 5) NHTSA crash testing score. While the 2009 and 2010 earn 4.3 (out of 5). We aren’t overly impressed.
At first glance, the annual cost per year seems reasonable. The 2011 Escape is rated at $488 a year, while the 2010 Ford Escape is the highest of the four at $639 a year. Yet, all four models show a higher chance of a particular repair that could cost more than $500. As an example, the 2009, 2010, and 2011 models may deal with a pricey engine repair, while the 2012 Escape could face a brake or AC/heat repair.
All four Escape SUVs show a higher instance of the On Board Diagnostic System Readiness Test Not Complete (P1000) trouble code. Our research indicates that an Antilock Brake System (ABS) Control Module may be required, costing between $928 and $1,193. There’s also a higher instance of the Evaporative Emission Control System Leak – Small (P0456) trouble code with the 2009 and 2010 models.
The 2009 Ford Escape has four recalls and three investigations, which is one of the lowest yet. The 2010 Ford Escape goes up to five recalls and five investigations, while the 2011 Ford Escape only has three recalls and four investigations. Surprisingly, the 2012 Ford Escape only has two recalls and two investigations.
2016 Ford Escape
FIXD Reliability Score: 8/10
Owner Reliability Score: 8/10
KBB Value: $8,458
Fuel Economy: 25 (gas)
Annual Maintenance/Repair: $740
Safety Rating: 4.4/5
It was difficult to rank the 2016 Ford Escape in this category, but necessary because of the higher chance of expensive repairs and below-average safety score.
The FIXD Reliability score on the 2016 Ford Escape is 8 out of 10. It receives a matching Owners Reliability score of 8 out of 10.
Sadly, the Ford Escape earns a 4.4 (out of 5) NHTSA crash testing score. This is lower than average among other vehicles from this year.
We also found an average ownership score of $740 with the 2016 Ford Escape. With a higher chance of transmission, brake, or fuel system repairs, this SUV could quickly break the bank.
The 2016 Ford Escape shows a higher chance of dealing with the Unable to Bleed Up Fuel Tank Vacuum (P1450) code. It can also suffer from the Turbo Underboost Condition (P0299) trouble code.
On the bright side, the 2016 Ford Escape only has two recalls and there are no investigations open.
What years of the Ford Escape have engine and/or transmission problems?
Based on our data, the 2001, 2004, 2006, and 2009-2011 Ford Escape models are more likely to suffer from expensive engine repairs. There’s also a higher chance of transmission repairs with the 2001, 2006-2008, 2013, and 2016 SUVs.
What is considered high mileage for a Ford Escape?
While maintenance always plays a role in how long a vehicle will last, the Ford Escape doesn’t look like it regularly hits higher mileage. If you want the SUV to last longer than 150,000 miles, you must be diligent with the maintenance.
Based on our data, a high-mileage Ford Escape could be considered anything over 115,000 miles.
Older Ford Escape models (2001-2010) show an average mileage range between 125,000 and 166,000. The 2003 Escape has the highest mileage in our surveys, but there are plenty that achieve more than 150,000 miles. Just remember that the more mileage the Escape has, the lower the resale value is and the less room there is to make repairs before the SUV belongs in the junkyard.
Do any hybrid years have problems?
It’s possible that the hybrid powertrain is causing some of the engine repairs with the 2006 and 2009-2011 Ford Escape models. These have a higher instance of expensive engine repairs reported. The other hybrid Escape SUVs appear to perform better.
What other vehicles should I consider?
Ford has an extensive SUV lineup. If the Escape isn’t the right choice for you, consider the Bronco Sport, Bronco, or Explorer. There are also the Edge or Expedition models. If you want an electric powertrain, we recommend looking at the Mustang Mach-E as well.
However, there are tons of comparable SUVs to choose from outside of the Ford family. Do some more research into the Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson, Honda CR-V, or Nissan Rogue. You may also be interested in the Subaru Forester, Kia Sportage, Toyota RAV4, or Volkswagen Tiguan.

A Note About Data and Information Sources
This article has many details about Ford Escape reliability; here’s what we used for our assumptions and recommendations.
- FIXD Reliability Score & Data: Engine reliability information is captured via the FIXD App.
The FIXD Reliability Score is calculated using the number of DTCs per year, weighted by mileage. This is then turned into a scale of 1-10 for easy graphing.
This is an objective score.
- Owner Reliability Score & Data: This data is the result of surveying Ford Escape owners who use FIXD.
The Owner Reliability Score comes straight from owners of the Ford Escape.
This is a subjective score.
To determine the Owner Reliability Score we ask each car owner:
How reliable would you say your Ford Escape is?
a. Just point A to point B driving
b. A Daily Commuter
c. Good for a 100 mile road trip
d. Good for a 500 mile road trip
e. I could take a cross-country road trip, no problem
From here we translate their answers into the Owner Reliability Score:
a. = 2
b. = 4
c. = 6
d. = 8
e. = 10
Keep in mind, owners may think their car is more or less reliable than it actually is.
One potential problem is that people often buy the same make or model they are used to when they go car shopping, just a newer year.
Ford, for instance, has a number of consumer loyalty awards for the Ford F-Series, Ford Mustang, and Ford Expedition.
Car owners may be so loyal to the make or model they currently own that they would have trouble accurately comparing their cars’ reliability to others.
It’s for this reason that we ask car owners a question that is relative to mileage rather than relative to other cars.
Still, be mindful of the accuracy of these Owner Reliability Scores, people’s perceptions and unconscious blindspots can skew data.
We suggest looking at both the FIXD Reliability Score and the Owner Reliability Score for this reason.
- KBB Value: Average private-seller valuations as supplied by Kelley Blue Book (KBB), based on a Ford Escape with typical mileage for that respective model year.
- Fuel Economy: Mileage-per-gallon estimates according to the EPA MPG on Fueleconomy.gov
- Annual Maintenance/Repair: Upkeep expenses as reported by surveyed Ford Escape owners
- Safety Rating: Crash test data collected and reported by NHTSA. We average all ratings for each year to come up with a simplified, average safety score. This makes it easier to look at on a graph.
