2006 Ford Escape SUV Limited 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This Ford Escape hybrid is big enough for 5 and is really sporty and comfortable. We travel to Vegas very often in it, and aren't thinking we may get stranded in the desert. It's super reliable and gets more than 32 mpg on the interstate! We save more than $290 a month on gasoline with our normal driving habits for family and business. Very cool!


Favorite Features

Hybrid engine that is super peppy and doesn't need plugging in, yet I have a 110 watt power jack in the front console that's for me to plug in devices, laptops, DVD players, etc.


Suggested Improvements

Too cool like it is. Maybe just a bit of a wider wheel-base to feel less top heavy.

2006 Ford Escape SUV Limited 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This small SUV is by far my favorite vehicle. I always liked the Mercury version (Mariner) but decided to look at the Escape since it was basically the same with a slightly different look and was a few grand less. Well I loved the ride. Can't say anything bad about the car.


Favorite Features

Love the V6 power. Nice handling, doesn't feel top heavy.


Suggested Improvements

My major complaint is lack of lumbar support in the seats and the lack of a foot rest for the left foot when driving. Seems like a little thing but on a long trip it would be nice to have.

2006 Ford Escape SUV Limited 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is a great little SUV. It's small enough to not feel as cumbersome as many of the larger 'utes, but still avoids feeling like a "toy", which I did not find to be true of the RAV4 and CR-V I took a look at. We got the Limited with every option except towing and sunroof. I've never had much use for a sunroof, and if I wanted to tow, I would buy a larger vehicle intended for that type of use. Highly recommend the titanium green color. It maintains a clean appearance longer than many colors, and looks great in sunlight. Overall a very nice vehicle, with surprising options. Highly recommended.


Favorite Features

Reverse sensors, 8" sub on upgraded audio system is nice, perforated leather is a nice touch, tire pressure monitors and keypad entry are unexpected, even for the Limited.


Suggested Improvements

V6 engine sounds anemic, even though it's plenty powerful. Maybe the exhaust could stand some tuning.

Review

I have driven the vehicle for three months. It is really fun to drive. It is easy to get into and out of. The mileage around town is 18 to 20 mpg. On a trip from Jefferson City, MO to Dayton, OH and return it averaged a little over 25 mpg. The vehicle, for a small SUV, has lots of room and the rear seats fold down for hauling larger items. The engine has plenty of power.


Favorite Features

Leather seats and all around good looks.


Suggested Improvements

With today's gas prices we could use better mileage.
