garbage on wheels

2006 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Where to begin? 15 mpg is the best we can get, and that's driving nice. The v6 struggles all the time, and smells like burning oil when parked after a run. Within the past 2 weeks the ABS has failed, the 4WD light has come on, and it pulls to the right under acceleration. The transmission now clunks when shifting. The factory tires are junk and started humming loudly after 15 000 km. To top things off, there are weird clunking noises coming from the back and front end. All this after 45,000 km, not miles!
One day this SUV will be on a scrap heap where it belongs, that's the best feature.
