2003 Ford Escape XLS Value Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I love driving this car. It drives especially well in the snow and the awd makes it so you don't even have to engage 4wd most of the time. I live in the mountains and it is a great car. I love the room in the back of the car where adults can easily sit. I also love the cargo space in the back. The seats lay down flat if you need more cargo space.
Has a lot of power. Great in the snow!
gas mileage has gone down over time and I do not know what to do to improve it. No one seems to have any ideas. Doesn't get good mileage on mountain roads but still does pretty well if just driving on the freeway.
