I have 122 979 kms. I purchased mine in September 2012. It is a 2013 model. I do like it a lot. Very minor repairs except I needed to change the odometer reset switch on the steering wheel. Very good SUV. GAS TANK should be bigger!!!
Cheers

Does anyone with high mileage have any symptoms of carbon build-up? Things like engine misfires, rough idle, poor MPG, decreased horsepower, etc are signs of this problem.

Particularly Devildog, with 104,000, you should certainly have had serious signs and symptoms of this problem by now. How's that EcoBoost running with all those miles? Is it rough and crappy, or smooth as silk (as I remembered as the Escape's strongest point when I first test-drove one).

I'm new to the forum, so don't really know what is considered good mileage but I get 25.5 MPG in the summertime or I should say "non-winter". I live in northern Iowa and experience below zero F in the winters. I remote start and let it warm up in the mornings and sometimes between stops so mileage suffers......Usually 2 to 3 MPG to average around 22.5 to 23 MPG in the winter. Thus far, the 2.0 EcoBoost is performing very well. Seems to run very smoothly with good power and I have had no issues with the engine. I joined the forum to see if anyone had any ideas on how to repair my HID headlights that are on this thread. HID lights will not go to dim. $2600 + Labor to fix?????

While I do not have very high milage yet on my '14 (46K), my friend who has a '13 has 91K miles and neither of us have any issues with the 2.0 engine. Both run exactly the same, strong and smooth. Mine is a little more powerful since it has a tune and a few other mods but other than that we are both very happy with our Escapes.

I now have 20,000 miles on mine - after 2 years. I drive many short trips since I work 1 mile away, and run there and back very frequently. My 1.6 is smooth as ever. And I now have been using Costco 91 octane gas, and it seems easy to be above 28 mpg.

I'm thinking this one is a keeper!
