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


I bought the Escape brand new, 2 weeks later it broke down, 2 months after that the first of 2 recalls arrives. The transmission shifts hard and now the whole brake system needs serious work. Neither my husband nor I are hard on the Escape, as a matter of fact, after 4 years there is only 23,000 miles on it.

Best Features

The color (blue), big enough for tall people, interior easy to clean.

Worst Features

Better quality of parts in the drivetrain as well as the brakes
