2011 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)

Review

I have the 2011 Escape XLT with the 3.0L, 6 cyl. It says 4 WD. 6 speed AT. Purchased Dec 2010. I love the "boxyness" and visibility. I did not want a cushy car or AWD. It rides hard but I do not mind. I wanted a small 4 wheel drive vehicle. I am concerned about the transmission and 4 wheel drive capability. The transmission broke 2 days after purchasing the vehicle new. 75 miles. Ford said it was a simple fix but took 10 days to fix. It still whines and has a vibration. Ford says that it is normal. I wanted the 4 WD to go on the beach but I am worried. This is replacing a 4WD 1 ton pick up so I am not use to the new vehicles. Can I use the Escape on the beach?

Favorite Features

Looks. Functional. Good visibility after removing rear head rest. Stiff ride.

Suggested Improvements

The new style looks like the Equinox. Go back to the box look. Make a small durable 4 wheel drive.
