2004 Ford Escape XLS Value Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I just hit 50,000 miles and this car is great! I also owned an 04 Mazda Tribute and they have both been great. The only thing that bothers me is the brakes wearing too quick and the traction not being too great in rainy weather. I have actually hydroplaned off the road in both of my vehicles. The engine sounds just as strong as it did new and everything is great on it. Some things do seem a little cheap on it (like the console and glove box). One big complaint I hear from everyone is the gas mileage is AWFUL...it does not match with the window sticker at all. It would be nice to get 25 mpg on the highway with the V6 but it's nowhere near that.

Best Features

Fun to drive, 6 CD changer with tweeters and subwoofer (factory), sporty leather seat design, the sporty aluminum wheels.

Worst Features

Better made interior parts (glove box, door handles, console). To be better in wet weather.
