2006 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I bought a used Escape with just under 70000 KM on it. In two and a half years the vehicle required 5 brake calipers, one O2 sensor, a front flex pipe, 2 emergency brake cables, 2 wheel hubs, 6 rotors, 12 brake pads, 3 oil seals, 2 U-joints, 3 lower control arms, 2 sway bar links, 1 serpentine belt, 1 battery, 2 half-shafts and 2 sway bar bushings. When it worked it was great, but 95% of the time there was something wrong with it. It cost me about as much in repairs and parts as it did to buy it in the first place. I took a huge loss to get rid of it but it was worth it. It has been replaced by a 2009 Santa Fe which is a far, far superior vehicle.

Favorite Features

The rear end of the vehicle... Seeing it drive away after I sold it. The engine was pretty smooth and reasonably powerful, though. It was about the only part of the vehicle that had no major issues.

Suggested Improvements

Durability should have been better. The vehicle aged terribly and rusted like it was nobody's business. Harsh transmission as well.
