2006 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
Looked at several of the smaller SUVs and got this one based on the FORD name, safety packages and mileage. It came with the leather package and the sun and sound package for free, I am assuming in response to the many complaints of inferior interior design. The better stereo is great and the sunroof is nice too. Do not like the center console and cup holder placement though. Engine is surprisingly responsive considering it is only a 4 cylinder.
The color (sonic blue), the stereo and handling. I can once again get into a small parking spot in one try.
Center console should be planned better. The cup holders are almost useless where they are. I miss the exterior temp and compass of my F150. Can't they make this an option?
