2006 Ford Escape XLT Sport 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
We really like our Escape. It is fun to drive. We would like it better if it were just a little bit bigger. At least big enough so five people could ride in it and be comfortable. We could get five people in it but the one in the middle of the back seat wouldn't be really comfortable. Also we would like it better if the doors locked automatically when the vehicle is started. This is a feature that we think should be added. Overall we are pleased with our Escape. Of course we haven't had it long enough or driven it enough miles to encounter any major problems. I hope it is reliable enough that we never have any major problems with it. Time will tell.
Easy to drive and handle. Comfortable ride. Easy to see everything when you are driving. Overall a nice little vehicle.
Make it a little bigger. At least big enough for five passengers to ride comfortably. Have the doors automatically lock when the vehicle is started or soon after driving has started. Better gas mileage.
