2005 Ford Escape XLS Fwd 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


I had to junk my 2005 Dodge Neon after many, many problems and decided to buy this 2005 Ford Escape to replace it. I am very happy that I did. It runs great, even with 90,000 miles on it. I haven't had the opportunity to try out the all wheel drive in the snow yet. The only issue I have with the vehicle is that it is a gas guzzler. I only get about 20 miles to the gallon, as I do mostly city driving. It seems like I just fill it up and the next thing I know my tank is down 25 to 50 percent. I got nitro put into my tires to increase the gas milage a little bit.

Best Features

The power driver seat is sweet. I like the 6 CD changer built in the dash. My favorite feature is the moon roof. It's as close to a convertible as I'll be getting in the near future.

Worst Features

Better gas milage would be a plus.
