Review of the 2004 Ford Escape

  • Still one of our favorites in the category, the 2004 Ford Escape is a very capable small SUV thanks to its powerful V6 engine, spacious cabin and carlike handling.

  • Safety

I have had no maintenance problems in 6 years! Toyota put that in your pipe and smoke it!

My engine threw a rod at 34,311 miles and punched 2 holes in the block. Ford replaced it under warranty. If you buy a Ford make sure you are aware of their Road Side Assistance program and you also may want to get an extended warranty. They don't give you a replacement car or a rental without an extended warranty. I was without my vehicle for 2 weeks.




This vehicle is awesome!!!

The gas mileage is not as good as advertised. I get about 15mpg. But this thing looks sharp and drives nicely.

We have TWO! Named my Escape 'Clifford'. Guess what color it is? I love this car, looove, there aren't enough positive words. Much better mileage than what the sticker says. Peppy, roomy. Handles great in snow. A bit of wind noise at high speeds(80mph) makes it difficult to listen to the excellent cd player (single). Please follow the dealer maintenance record religiously. There have been a few problems, but the dealer fixed. Don't bother with the dealers 'ext. warranty' Call Ford Mo Co yourself and ask them specifically for their own. Dealer will try to sell you an 'aftermarket'insisting it is Ford's. After 2 dealers, 3 cars we learned the hard way.

What's New for 2004

The 2004 Ford Escape remains largely unchanged although the price has been lowered on the plush Limited model and certain appearance packages are now available on lower trim levels which, in effect, reduce the final price. Also, Chrome Yellow is no longer a color choice. To eliminate confusion, trim levels and option packages have been consolidated.
