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


Love the size, look, gas mileage! However road noise is an issue. If it were not for that I would give it a perfect score. If Ford could decrease road noise this would compete with Honda CRV,and Toyota Rav 4 hands down. I looked at those too, but chose the Ford because of the economical price. However the road noise can be annoying. My husband is thinking about pulling up the carpet and putting down a noise pad to see if it helps. So, maybe ford could try that! I love the look and gas mileage and have had zero mechanincal issues and it has 80K miles on it now. I love the fact that there is no tire on the back..that is why I nixed the CRV and Rav 4.

Best Features

Look, size, gas mileage. Simple AC buttons..no stupid computer lights to worry about. I hate all that fancy stuff that breaks and then costs a fortune to fix!

Worst Features

Road noise!
