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


This my first SUV. Checked out all the other SUV's over a two month period, but kept coming back to the Escape. Had it only one week and then took a road trip from Florida to Michigan and put 4000 miles on it on flat highways and mountains and got approximately 26.5 mpg on the flats and 25.5 in the mountains. I think 4,000 miles is a good test drive. I am 6 ft.; have leather seats that were comfortable with great back support that I had no trouble driving for 12 hours (with rest stops every two hours) in one day. I love it and would recommend the Escape XLT V6 auto to anyone.

Best Features

Love the floor shift (auto) ,leather seats, handling, acceleration, in dash 6 CD player (standard on XLT), split lift gate, cargo space, cargo convenience group, low lean in tight turns, gas mileage group, dash dials, auto passenger air bag.

Worst Features

A little better upgrade of the gray plastic around the radio and power window controls.
