2009 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Replaced my old F150 with this. I was surprised at how smooth it drives. The clutch does take some getting used to. Been getting 29.5 mpg on highway. Goes up the mountain roads pretty good. Full coverage insurance was cheap, so must be safe? I've only driven it about 1500 miles but everything works great.
AC is ice cold. Audio input is cool. Steering is really smooth. Comfortable. Lots of little storage spaces. Cup holders conveniently located.
Too many buttons by radio. Seat fabric kind of cheap. Not sure about the capless fuel filler thing yet. Very limited selection of stick shifts at local dealers. Some features not available on stick shift models?
