2006 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Well I'm not a Ford person really as I swore I'd never own one but my wife and I have noticed that we have been taken by the style and appearance of certain model years of the Escape. We have only had our Escape for a few weeks now and despite the negative reviews as seen here regarding the less than anticipated fuel mileage so far our initial trials have been at least 500kms to the the full tank or better with city and highway driving. We'll see in the months to come how the fuel mileage will end up being.
The awd feature. The type of tires which came with it. The dual rear hatch/glass feature. The roominess of the interior.
I'd like to see the return of the separate switching of the 4wd feature which an 04 model had. To be able to fold down the rear seats completely without having to remove the headrests. individual options to obtain individual preference such as sun roof etc.
