2006 Ford Escape Limited 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
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.
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.
V6 engine sounds anemic, even though it's plenty powerful. Maybe the exhaust could stand some tuning.
