08 Escape 4 cyl Auto Great MPGs for SUV! Very reliable

2008 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
We bought our escape with 46k on it and have put 40k on it since.
It is a great vehicle for a small family.
We are about to have a second child so we are thinking about upsizing a little.
These old style boxy SUVs have more room than the newer crossovers I think.
Only problem we had was when there was a carbon build up on the throttle body that was making it hard to press the gas.
That was easily fixed with some carb cleaner.
