Ford Escape - Skip this one

2005 Ford Escape XLS Fwd 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Our Ford Escape is the least reliable new car we've ever owned (we've bought plenty new). It has been back at the dealer at least once a month on average since we bought it. It is been repaired more often than my old Subaru. Not all of it is Ford's fault - it started with the Firestone tire fiasco. There have been no life threatening failures, but the car has continuous problems.
Favorite Features
The car is comfortable and drives pretty well. It's not fun to drive the way a Jeep is, but is similar to the newer wave of pseudo-SUVs that are out there. The AWD is ok, but not great. It takes a second to lock in if you start to slide. That's typical of most AWD systems though.
Suggested Improvements
Quality improvement is the biggest thing needed - at least with ours. I would also like a stiffer ride to help improve handling.
