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


Purchased my Escape in 2010 from Ford dealership in Mount Holly,New Jersey; the minute I took it home I had problems with the censors. Called Dealership and after much heated discussion they repaired it. Mileage is about 21 mpg. Should have inspected the undercarriage better. Found lots of rust. After living in New Jersey and driving in snow and ice, which we have plenty of, I'm planning to drive to San Antonio, Texas. I'm a little nervous to attempt the trip. Will update after my arrival in Texas.

Best Features

Seat heater comes in handy with Jersey weather.

Worst Features

These engines were prebuilt and inserted into the body. When things like the oil pan need repair, the whole engine has to be hoisted out. No other way. Big Problem.
