I gave my 06 Escape a rating back in Aug 06. I was very pleased with it after owning it for only 2 months. Now I confirm that pleasure with 2 years of ownership and just love it. Nothing has gone wrong with it! I do have to say though, the Continental tires had to get replaced at 31,000 miles. They actually looked like new but got so loud, it was like having 4 snow tires on it. I never realized how quiet the Escape was, for those tires were on it when I bought it. They made noise from the beginning but I never realized it. Now its sooo quiet with the new tires. I really like this SUV. Hope to drive it for several more years. No complaints at all.
Powerful, quick, feels like a 4 door sedan, 4WD is incredible in deep snow, very good brakes, stops on a dime, solid no rattles or squeakes. many people have commented on how smooth and quiet it rides.
MPG.could be better with the v6 but a very good running engine.
