Almost the best car I have ever had
By Lefthandedlex on


2005 Ford Escape XLS AWD 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Retirement age is in sight so I have had quite a few cars to compare to. In 3 years I put almost 62000 miles. It is an automatic 4 cyl AWD. It is peppy I have gotten 31 mpg on rare occasions but usually 28 on avg. Except for normal maint it has only seen the dealership once for a very minor issue. Took a long weekend trip almost 5 hours one way with 4 adults and the roof rack stuffed to the gills and still got 25 mpg. Only thing I miss is leather seats. The cloth seats stain easy but so far nothing that I could not get out. Looking forward to another 60000 at least.

Best Features

Nothing special. It is a basic model.

Worst Features

Better cloth seat covers that do not stain as easy.
