A nice all around vehicle. 6cyl 2WD

2008 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I have had this vehicle for almost 3 years now. Note this is the 2WD XLT with 6 cyl. My lease is up in May. Overall the vehicle is a nice equipped ride. Gas mileage as been decent. I have traveled to canada 2X and averaged 26 to 27 mpg at 75mph plus the truck loaded down with fishing gear. Back and forth to work I avg 24 in the summer and 21 om the winter. This is combined HWY and city driving (35 mile commute). Ride noise is a little high but the std tires are not the greatest. I did have to replace a brake sensor ($200 plus) at 30K. Overall I am happy with the vehicle.
Easy to drive. It is not to big but not to small. Seats fold flat.
Better stock stereo system and upgraded speakers. Improve on gas mileage and interior noise levels.
