2005 Ford Escape XLT AWD 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 4A)

Review

We just finished our lease on this SUV. Pro's are lots of cargo space, zippy around town and easy to drive. Con's are brakes not designed well for rural use, rotors and brakes non stop getting fixed, AWD got locked on one day on pavement. Bit of a gas pig. We had cloth seats and they stained if you looked at them! Three kids in the back is too crammed up. The door sills are too high, trapping mud and snow in like crazy. Cheap interior. The nerf bars stink in snow as they bottom you out, and when driving AWD when you get stuck, you are stuck!

Favorite Features

Zippy drive, cargo space huge.

Suggested Improvements

Spend money on the interior, and close up the brake system. Definitely not built for Canada as their ad so nicely says, opposite!
