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


It's hard to discribe the disappointment experienced from this vehicle. I'll just point out the facts. 48000kms in 34 months from new. 1) 4th transmission on it's way out. 2) ABS/power brakes failed twice. 3) tire pressure sensor failed 4 times 4) rear axle seal leaked 5) windshield washer sensor light failure 6) loose parts banging around in floor or dash since 6 months after purchase. 7) understeers like a cab over tow truck towing an overweight vehicle. 8) Conteinental Contitrac tires rounded out like a wheel barrow tire. aLway properly inflated. 9) 1st gear is like 2nd in any other car. (Poor gear ratios) 10) Avg fuel economy 14.62 miles per gallon or 16.01 liters/100km.

Best Features

Decent cargo capacity. Rear glass opens separate from door. Power seat.

Worst Features

Wipe the design slate clean and start over. Consider a new engine. This engine first came into production in 1996. Use the 3.5l v6 from teh edge/Fles/Taurus X. it's suppoedly more fuel efficient and decades smoother.
