2005 Ford Escape XLT Fwd 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


This vehicle does all we want it to. Also have a 4WD 2003 Escape w/no problems. These vehicles are the most practicle,easy-to-drive,comfortable on the road. I drove all kinds of SUV's and pickups over a 35 year career as a mine inspector in the central Mt's. of PA (the last being a 2001 Escape). 45,000 miles of mud,dust,water and with regular maintenance no problems.Sure,it wouldn't go some of the places a Jeep could( didn't have the ground clearance)but I was impressed enough to replace two personal cars- a Durango and a Cherokee with the Escapes and have never been sorry.

Best Features

Seating position, easy to drive,visibility, cargo area, styling, 24MPG, size is just right.

Worst Features

OEM Contitrac tires pick up stones,gravel,screws,nails.
