2005 Ford Escape XLT Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Just purchased a 2005 Ford Escape XLT, and so far it has been great! I have had to have a few things replaced but that's to be expected at 85000 plus miles. The negative is the road noise! Wholy cow, I am looking for tires to help lessen it. I wish it had a few more bells and whistles but for me right now it seems to be working out just fine. I have for the most part only purchased fords Im hoping this one does not disappoint. Hoping to get the 2013 eventually. I

Best Features

I love, love, love the sun roof! The radio isn't half bad either. Cargo space is great as well.

Worst Features

Road noise! Not super bad. Also heard that there is know glitch with a fuse that causes the vehicle to completely shut down. After much research heard this comment quite a lot but Ford has not acknowledged it as a recall. Clearly not a driver thing, a builder thing. Not a fan of the easily stained seats, not super comfortable but tolerable.
