2005 Ford Escape Limited AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

We have had this SUV for two years, buying at the 24,000 mile mark and now at 42,000 miles. We have not had any unexpected problems except one: the rear tailgate started to rust. The dealer fixed that. Replaced front discs at 40K and the Conti's at 40K. Otherwise no problems to report. It's surefooted in MI winters. On extended Highway driving it got almost 24 MPG, but in extended stop and go it's getting about 16 MPG.

Favorite Features

The leather seats were comfortable enough for me to spend 18 hours in them for a single day, 800 mile driving marathon.

Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage. Better rustproofing on the rear tailgate.
