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


Bought this vehicle Jan 06 after having a base Taurus. I like the zippyness I get from this 4cyl 5 speed. Gas mileage is great for an SUV at 27 hwy summer and 24 hwy winter here in MN. As read in other reviews can't stand the poor quality paint but to go along with design we do travel on some gravel roads and when wet or muddy the doors in the rear will get mud and dirt between them and the inside - my other vehicles never had this and I think this is terrible. I am quite conscious of this so I make sure to clean this area afterward because I don't want it to rust out before its time

Best Features

Stereo sound, five speed transmission for fuel economy, and instrument panel looks are great

Worst Features

Filling gas tank, better door design to prevent dirt and mud between door and frame of vehicle, road noise
