2004 Ford Escape XLS Value Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I've only had this truck for 6 days nows - I drove 339 miles on my 1st tank of gas and it was spread out evenly between hwy & cty miles. The reason I got the 5-speed manual 4cyl was for the "estimated" 28MPG. I can tell you I drive my vehicles very easy and I never "jack-rabbit" start. I ALWAYS get more then the estimated top end gas mileage but, this first tank of gas yielded me only 24.8 MPG. I was VERY UPSET! I hope that this is because the truck is new and will have to break in... but I can't imagine that is the case. Other than that. The truck rides nicely and with all the rebates I got out of there with a brand new truck for $15,300. Not too bad.
Favorite Features
5-speed, 4 cyl
Suggested Improvements
More options should be avail on this vehicle.... in order to get the 5-speed and 4 cyl I had to get the 15" wheels... 16" was not an option. CD/MP3, Center console & electronic mirror with compass and temp should be an option (it is on the Mazda version of this truck).
