Review

I love my new Escape. The gas mileage is ok but not bad. I love the 6 CD stereo. It's great when your on the road and can't find a good radio station. I haven't had it very long (2/04) but I haven't had any problems so far.

Review

I purchased my Ford Escape after owning a Jeep Cherokee. I loved it....loved how it handled, looked, and performed overall. We moved to California in 2001 and drove it from Florida to California with my 2 Labrador Retrievers in the back...with the rear seat down of course..very comfortable for them. Drove it back to Florida when we recently moved back East. I always get compliments on it, especially the color...


Favorite Features

6 CD Player Sunroof Running boards Tinted Windows


Suggested Improvements

The only thing I didn't like was that the gearshift would be (sort of) in the way of the radio when in Drive.

Review

My wife & i took a vacation to tennessee from delaware. we saw this vehicle on the road & we both fell in love with it. when we got back home we went & purchased ours. wouldn't give it up for anything else. if another vehicle was given to us we would sell it.the other vehicle that is. we also have two mustangs.


Favorite Features

i like the way it drives & handles. it is also good on gas mileage. it really looks good too.


Suggested Improvements

tthe cruise control could be set as low as 25 mph, not 27 or 28 like ours is. the dealer says they can't set it any lower.
