2005 Ford Escape Limited AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Just purchased a fully loaded 2005
Escape Limited 4x4. The early 2005 was
purchased $350 over invoice. My first
impression is this is a solid and good
looking vehicle. The engine is
powerful and responsiveness is
acceptable, but I found other vehicles
I test drove (such as the Honda CR-V)
were a bit more agile. The engine is
loud at higher RPMs and the automatic
transmission feels sluggish as it
searches and engages the next gear. I
feel very comfortable with the interior
styling, indicators and controls. I
will follow-up after my first 10K miles.

Best Features

- auto gearshift selector on the center floor instead of on the steering column. - newly rounded fog lamps and quad headlamps under clear-lens domes. - 3.0-liter 200-hp V-6 engine

Worst Features

Make the Front Side Impact Air Bag a standard.
