2004 Ford Escape XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Like the title says, I own both the Escape and Tribute, and must admit, both are terrific vehicles. I don't normally like SUV's at all, but these twins ride like cars, have very comfortable interiors (though there is too much reliance on hard plastic pieces), and plenty of power from the V6. The engine's quiet, wind and road noise low, and the cars are great on trips. I can drive them for hours without tiring. Other than the bargain basement interior, I don't have any complaints.


Favorite Features

Styling, great looking SUV's, if you pay for painted bumpers (and you should)...comfortable interior...nice ride, almost like a good quality road car...quiet, responsive engine...low road noise.


Suggested Improvements

Dress up the interior, for there's entirely too much hard plastic everywhere.

2004 Ford Escape XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

After researching suv's for 6 month's I have purchased a Ford Escape, this truck is a please to drive. I looked at Mitsubishi, Toyota, Nissan and Honda. While they may carry a high resale value, they also carry a much higher price. After all is said and done this truck, to me, is the best value in the market. The size is perfect, the performance great, and the ride, surprisingly good. I had this truck out in a snow storm and it performed great, not one slip or slid, it was never even in four wheel drive. I have driven import vehicles for the past 11 years but, I'm glad to be back in a domestic vehicle.


Favorite Features

The upgraded radio with 6 CD player is a must, it's awesome!


Suggested Improvements

Heated seats!! Door handles and console need to be a little more substantial, they look and feel cheap.
