2003 Ford Escape XLS Value Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Love driving this car, have gotten excellent gas mileage (from 22-28 mpg usually the higher end when traveling), no work other than oil changes, regular break work from in city traffic. It takes the mountains like a dream, comfortable for 3 traveling long distance and for all the luggage w/ the storage area in back. Great for moving items due to the back seats lowering. Loved it so much bought another one in 2008 and still have them both. Would buy a third if either of these ever give out.
the comfort, the storage, back seats being able to be folded, gas mileage, and the center console storage
Would like to see storage area for headrest when folding seats down which has not changed, and a little more leg room on passenger side for longer legged people like me, 6 ft
