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


Review

Great running, fun to drive. Plenty of room for cargo. Mileage is good as I beat it up and down the highway at 80 with the air on and get 23-24 miles per gallon. If stayed of the pedal I'm sure I could get better. Great American car! I would highly recommend.


Worst Features

Only thing I would like changed is the controls for the wipers/turn directionals to make a little less confusing.

Review

This SUV is awesome. I compared for some time now with Chevy, KIA, Jeep etc...and simply state this vehicle has power, quality, looks, and especially FUN!!!!!


Best Features

Aggressive look, Roomy for its size, and for sure it has power for a V6. This thing earns a nickname from me of GOBOT, like driving a car with truck capabilties...


Worst Features

Lighting for interior hard to see cruise control, and light swith placement. Need to work on switchology...lol

Review

Enjoy the interior space and comfort. Have not owned it long enough to judge overall reliability. My favorite part is that it is nice to ride up higher than in a car.


Best Features

Moonroof.


Worst Features

Some of the safety ratings concern me but I realize no vehicle is 100% safe anymore -- too much plastic. There are tradeoffs no matter what vehicle you pick.
