Americans React to Discontinuation of Ford EcoSport

We have seen some comments on Facebook from people from across the globe. One person was observed saying that the compact SUV is a pile of trash and he didn’t enjoy driving it at all. He used it as a rental but the overall experience was not great. Another person mentions that the car rentals will have a tough time finding alternatives to the EcoSport as a rental vehicle. This is because the EcoSport was cheap and easy to maintain. Now, they will have to look for suitable options. Another used was quoted as saying that it was not the best-looking SUV out there. Someone from Europe joined the conversation by saying that there it was never the best choice anyway. People preferred Puma over the EcoSport in most parts of Europe.
