The Escape, like other recently produced vehicles, has a huge problem with helicoptering when the rear windows only are opened (as in when travelling with a dog). This is a tremendous changing in pressure, sounds like a helicopter is overhead. KILLS your eardrums.

You can stop it by cracking the front windows, but this significantly adds wind/cold in winter/heat in summer to the front seat occupants. Especially in winter, only the dog wants an open window, and he typically rides in the back.
I have not experimented with the sunroof, but that is my next thing to try.

It would be cool if maybe those "window vent" add-ons solved this. Anyone know of a solution?

Window vents don't help especially if the rear window is all the way down

I'm a windows down guy. The most effecient way I've been able to reduce the buffeting of the air pressure is by cracking the front two windows, and then dropping the other window 100% (or until it hits the stops)

Or in my case, I lower all the windows and have the sunroof open all the way. Nothing beats the fresh air
