Not bad but needs improvements
By Nolan on
2005 Ford Escape XLT AWD 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
I bought this 05 XLT AWD 3.0L with 25000 miles on it and its been very good on road and off road whether its snow or mud. I've read alot of complaints about noise level of tires, I can't say I agree I find it very quiet with the OEM tires on it. I installed a K&N air filter which gave me on average a noticeable increase on fuel mileage per tank.
I like the extend able roof rack and towing package.
Fuel tank needs to be bigger Comes off fuel very fast, poor design in fuel tank. My biggest complaint is the center console is very noisy, rest you arm on it and it creaks every time the vehicle moves.
