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.
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.
