I Love my Escapee!
By missg3 on


2005 Ford Escape XLT Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Bought this when married to a paraplegic whose wheelchair fit in the back without taking the seats down and my bicycle fits in the back, with seats folded down.

I have owned this car for just over nine years. driven in all kinds of weather and road conditions, only with recommended maintenance, tires and one battery.
This year the power steering pump was recommended for replacement; after 120,000 miles I think that's pretty good.The only thing that has failed is the sunroof motor.

It is a fun vehicle to own!
Whips in and out of parking spaces, turns easily, but still rugged.

Not my first Ford, but definitely my most favorite!
