2008 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

'08 Escape XLS AWD is part of company car plan, best option of the 3 choices offered. Have had vehicle for 6 weeks, and just hit 5000 miles. Overall rate vehicle as fair. Unimpressed with engine power, cabin noise and vibration. Driver's seat is horrible, will fatigue you on short trips. Mileage is good (24 mpg on average mainly hwy). Little features missing like auto headlight shutoff, daylight running lights and seatback pockets. Had issue with vehicle starting after sitting for 2 days during first 1500 miles (imagine what might be in store after it gets 50k or more on it). I keep hoping for the best... but this isn't even close.

Favorite Features

Exterior style, tire size, AWD, cargo space, radio jack (for XM or iPod), fuel mileage, rear hatch door (dual opening feature).

Suggested Improvements

Seat comfort, engine severly underpowered, cabin noise,floor vibration when accelerating, auto off lights, seatback pockets, better key (yes the key is awkward with an intgrated fob)
