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


There is one minor flaw in this vehicle that is such a major distraction to the driving experience that I have grown to hate the Escape completely. I drive up to 60,000 km(35,000 Mi) every year and the uneven tire wear that mysteriously happens with these vehicles leads to obscene levels of noise while driving. The dealership and other garages seem aware that the Escape has this issue but don't seem aware of how horrendous an issue this is for a high mileage driver. The only advise the dealer could offer was to rotate the tires every 5000km instead of 10,000. For me that would mean a tire rotation every 4 weeks which is just not feasible! NOTE- uneven wear is not a result of wheel alignment.

Best Features

No favorite features... most features would just rate an "average" from me.

Worst Features

Fix whatever the problem is that causes uneven tire wear. Other vehicles i have owned such as Honda CRV did not have this problem.
