2007 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've had my Escape for about 3 years now and have loved it up until this point.
As I was driving home last week my O/D light began flashing.
I took the car to my mechanic and was told I needed a new transmission.
I only have 51,000 miles on my car.
Other than that, it does have some loud road noise- especially at around 45-50 mph.
Other than that, the car has treated me well, too bad I have to get rid of it.

2007 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Well, I did'nt want to do it but I finally sold my Ford Escape. I owned it for a little over a year and loved to drive it, enjoyed the way it handled and the versatility. It was always fun to drive it as it handled well and was a great looking vehicle. The wind noise was
a bit noticable at times but the reason I got rid of it was the terrible gas mileage. I have no idea what people are saying about good mileage. I live in the county and 95 % of my driving is highway and my Escape averages 20 mpg on the highway . My driving habits are quite conservative and Edmunds .com rates it as 21mpg on the highway. On the highway !!! To me this is not acceptable so I had to part with it . Thanks


Best Features

Versatility, fun to drive, very reliable, sharp looking


Worst Features

Must improve gas mileage!! and reduce wind noise

2007 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have owned this vehicle for 2 months now, I am pleased with it. Bought it with 32,000 miles, it is in excellent condition, it is an xlt but has several "sport" options, has the audiophile 6 cd changer with the 7 speakers. Mileage seems better than the van I had, the ride of course is a little stiffer though, the moonroof is neat, Continental "conti trac tires are noisy, will chg at 50k, my wife and I are both glad to be back in a Ford, Ford took the "high road", no bailout, and it has sure paid off.


Best Features

Moonroof, audiophile 6 cd changer and 7 speakers, tire pressure sensors, instrument lighting is cool (red/green), auto dome light entry, dome light/radio on exit feature, power seat, cargo cover, tailgate window open only feature, daylight/fog lamps


Worst Features

Center armrest a little too far back, could have a little more padding. The Continental "conti trac" tires are very noisy. Would prefer the foot pedal type emergency brake, but this one has its + s, more likely to use it. I would prefer the hood w/springs over the rod type holder, glove box under seat

2007 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

The truck looks good enough on the outside, but inside it is not designed so well. I had the leather bag over the parking brake replaced once, but because of the way it lays over the brake, it is now torn again. Just a small tear, like a cut, but it is b/c of the way it lays right over the metal brake. That however, is not my big issue. My issue is the gas mileage. Previously, I had a 2000, GMC Yukon Denali that had almost better gas mileage. It was older, & bigger, but this truck is almost worse. I regret buying mine, but now I'm stuck with it.


Best Features

The color & body style. It did real good on the Michigan snow covered road last winter. The 4WD is a necessity.


Worst Features

Better parking break bag design. ( I have a solution). Better gas mileage.

2007 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I love my escape. I always wanted a black SUV and when we drove the escape, I knew this was the right SUV for me. I've had it since 2007 and haven't had any problems! It's incredibly reliable and fun to drive. I would definitely get another escape in the future


Best Features

I love the air pressure gauge for the tires. I drive 2 kids around so it makes me feel safer that this is monitored because I rarely check on my own.


Worst Features

I wish there was a way to save seat preferences. My husband drives it too and we are always switching the seats back and forth
