Vehicle2005 Ford Escape XLS Fwd 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewJust purchased a fully loaded 2005 Escape Limited 4x4. The early 2005 was purchased $350 over invoice. My first impression is this is a solid and good looking vehicle. The engine is powerful and responsiveness is acceptable, but I found other vehicles I test drove (such as the Honda CR-V) were a bit more agile. The engine is loud at higher RPMs and the automatic transmission feels sluggish as it searches and engages the next gear. I feel very comfortable with the interior styling, indicators and controls. I will follow-up after my first 10K miles.
Best Features- auto gearshift selector on the center floor instead of on the steering column. - newly rounded fog lamps and quad headlamps under clear-lens domes. - 3.0-liter 200-hp V-6 engine
Worst FeaturesMake the Front Side Impact Air Bag a standard.
