I do have to say that it is one of my 3 year old grandson’s favorite features. When he “drives” Grandpa’s truck, it gets a lot of use. He seems to appreciate that it is somewhat loud and not very smooth. I do take his opinion with a grain of salt because he seems to be a big, but tiny Ford fanboy.

My crappy shifter lasted around 15,000 miles. It still worked, but it would get out of sync with the detents in drive and reverse and run the motor to try and correct without success. It would just make motor noises until you bumped it back into alignment.

I'd take the rotary shifter out of the Escape any day. Easy to shift without looking, and reasonably compact. Push button stuff like Lincolns look nice, but requires looking to find which button you want.
