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


I purchased my Escape brand new. I take it up in the Colorado/New Mexico Mountains skiing and snowboarding. I love the space and gas mileage. 26 MPG avg have hit 28 mpg once. I wish this vehicle had daytime driving lights and better cup holders in the center console. The gas filing thing that others wrote about is true, Ford needs to change this design. I've flattened the rear seats and have hauled over a 1000 lbs of patio pavers at a time. This is a fun vehicle to drive and knock on wood I have had no major repairs to date. The seats do stain easy but also clean up just as easy. I would purchase another Escape no problem.

Best Features

6 pack CD changer, sit nice and high while driving, seats flatten nicely, 26 mpg

Worst Features

Cup holders in center console, daytime running lights, and fix the gas tank filling port.
