Consumer Review Video - 2013 Ford Escape SEL 2.0L 4 Cyl. Turbo

Car Displayed: 2013 Ford Escape SEL 2.0L 4 Cyl. Turbo

The 2013 Ford Escape SEL is a rather challenging vehicle to maintain. The entire glove box housing must be removed to access the cabin air filter, which won’t allow for reliable filter changes. Some of the headlights are only accessible through the wheel well lining, which might prove to be a problem to remove. Multiple components under the vehicle will require a large panel to be pried off for access, which is bulky and cumbersome to disengage.

However, the 2013 Ford Escape SEL does have a few high points. The engine coolant reservoir has open access in the engine bay, allowing you to monitor the fluid level with reliability. The engine and interior fuse boxes are easy to reach and changing the fuses shouldn’t be a problem thanks to the provided fuse puller. The spare tire and jack kit are packaged together, which will make for quick removal and set-up.
