Good little car
By bobb209 on
2007 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
I've had my Escape for a year now and it has been an excellent vehicle. It's just the right size for a suburbanite like me. I can load 20 bags of mulch in the back with the back seats folded down or a 20 inch tv in the box, but the car is still easy to drive and park. I am a low mileage driver, but still I have not had one problem with the Escape. The ride is not as smooth as a sedan, but on the one trip I took from Milwaukee to Minneapolis the ride was good. I've read elsewhere that the aceleration of Escape with automatic transmission was supposed to be sluggish, but I find it to be vey quick and have had to ease up on the accelerator compared to other cars I've had.
Rear seats are easy to fold down. Guages are easy to read. Interior room is excellent. Handling is very good.
Ignition is hard to see at night. Need a way to light that area.
