Vehicle2004 Ford Escape XLS Value Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI'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.
Best Features5-speed, 4 cyl
Worst FeaturesMore 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).
