This truck is Horrible!
By Mary on
2005 Ford Escape Limited Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I leased this Escape in May 2005 and in August began hearing a creaking noise coming from the back. This truck has been in the shop a few times for a total of 3 1/2 weeks; the mount needed work. I still hear creaking from the back, the window makes noise and the door creaks. This is the noisiest truck ever and I get 15 MPG! I am so sorry that I went from Nissan to Ford.
The only good feature is the reliability and it holds the road.
Needs to be more airtight with less noise and better gas mileage also.
