2006 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Review
First off, this car was a mistake. Many problems, and they just reoccurred over and over again. Not worth the Money. It lost half its value since i bought it. let me start with the problems. 1. The radio has gone bad 3 times. 2. The windows make a horrible racket. 3. The Engine Dry starts. (had normal maintenance.)4. The transmissions are junk. After talking to my mechanic, he said that he has replaced a ton of them. they go bad very quickly, and the starting price for a rebuilt one if 3k. so now i have a money pit, sitting in another state, worth half what i owe, and i cannot even fix it. Great Idea Ford. I DO NOT recommend this vehicle unless u pay 5k or less for it.
Favorite Features
The sound system when it worked sounded great, 6 disc changer, nice speakers also. Ride comfort is so-so. If you buy this car, make it a later model, i guess they tried to fix the tranny, but it still breaks, just not as often.
Suggested Improvements
Fix the Radio, Transmission, Engine, Windows, Lower Ball joints and Bushings(Have to buy the whole lower control arm), And you would have a descent car. Gas mileage is about 20mpg, i've seen better.

Funny, my mechanic says he nevers seens any problems with the Escapes. I know several, like more than 10, people with Escapes and none of them had or have any problems. If your guy is replacing a ton of transmissions maybe he has some racket going..
