2004 Ford Escape XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I bought my escape in 2004 brand new. It has plenty of power and has never let me down. Gas mileage isnt great with my average being 20mpg. Odometer is now at 55,000 miles. At this point these are my only complaints...the center console cover was too weak...I put my arm on it in the winter and it cracked..dash vents produce debris (black crumbs) that are noticeable. Gear shift gets in the way of stereo control. Thats it. Plenty of cargo room and great in the snow.
Leather seats are very comfortable. Powerful engine when I need to pass on 2 lane roads. Great handling.
eliminate need to remove headrests to put rear seats down for cargo. strengthen the center console cover. Improve fuel economy.
