2008 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

To date I have 1200 miles on the Escape and have not had, as excepted, a single problem. I use the car primarily as a means to get to work and for the usual weekend project stuff. Overall I am very impressed with the car and am averaging 23.0 mpg (big Texas city driving: 40% highway, 60% city). I also really like the Sirius radio, but was disappointed to learn that there are still the occasional commercials. Also when you go under an over-pass, or in a tunnel, you loose the satellite signal due to a line-of slight limitation. One thing I will pass on is that you need to be careful when folding down the rear sets if you have the leather interiors as the seat belt receptacle tends to

Favorite Features

Handling characteristics, acceleration and roominess.

Suggested Improvements

Higher quality interior controls. Better mileage. Make it easier to fold down the rear seats.
