Good value for the money
By ohiodale on


2004 Ford Escape XLT Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


I have a 2004 Escape with about 87,000 miles on it.
It has always been a good car for me and its going on 9 years.
I had to replace the front axil due to the gear that drives the anti lock brakes cracking.
This repair was $350 which was not bad in my eyes.
I do routine oil changes and have had all the other fluids changed once, including the brake fluid.
I am a firm believer that if you want a car to last you need to put some money into them.
I expect I will need to replace the spark plugs and serpentine belts in about a year.
I drain the transimission fluid from the drian plag every couple of years and so far so good with the tranny.

Best Features

I like the style, the 6 cyclinder engine, and the fold down back seats. Its fun to drive and still has good resale value. I love the way it looks like a truck not a station wagon on stilts.

Worst Features

I like it overall and nothing stands out that should be improved.
