2004 Ford Escape Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
This car has been a joy to own: it looks great, the driving experience and handling give you confidence, is roomy, and is very reliable. It still runs like a charm after 50k miles.
Looks like a more expensive SUV ... I love the gray/black combination ... solid feel and handling
Not too thrilled about the gas mileage: I'm not a lead-foot nor haul that many people around and I get around 15mpg avg. Also, when it rains I hear a noise that sounds like water trickling from a fountain. And have a squeaky noise in the suspension that no one can seem to find the root cause.
