Notes: The 2007 Ford Escape looks pretty good compared to other Ford Escape model years, but still has a trend of transmission problems, so it's not a model year we can recommend.

Also the base model Escape did not come with side airbags so it received a "Poor" rating from the IIHS for side impact protection. Other similar 2007 models like the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V & Hyundai Santa Fe scored far better.

Escape 4WD 6-cyl

I had just pulled out of the gas station when my back glass exploded. I was the only vehicle there and I was hardly even going 5 mph! I immediately exited my vehicle to see if anything had hit it, and there was nothing in or around my vehicle except for shattered glass. The glass was every where; inside the back, on the bumper, and even on top of the roof! I'm not the only one who has experienced this issue! william Ford and mark fields, I want this fixed! if my two year old were in the car he would be covered in glass! this is a safety issue!

As I was coming out of work to go to lunch I walked up to the car and saw all sorts of glass on the ground and then looked up and saw that my rear window had blown out. The rubber that holds the window was on the outside of the car. I had a police officer come out and look at it and he determined that it was not vandalism of any type. It was a bright sunny day and about 28 degrees. It was parked in the parking lot and it just blew out. I am grateful for that because I drive quite a ways to work on a very busy road and if that had happened while I was driving it may of caused a serve accident.
