ReviewI actually am quite fond of my Escape in spite of some dissapointing quirks. I must say it is way better than my last car, a Jeep Cheerokee Sport. The escape is an all around great vehicle and does every thing it is supposed to. I do agree with the person that said the tilt wheel does not tilt enough, this feature is like "What's the point?". Also mine has a very annoying suspension rattle that drives me crazy. I think it needs the sway bar connecting links replaced. My '05 Ford Focus had the same problem. Not hard or expensive to fix but a design flaw just the same. The padding in the front buckets is breaking down in the seat backs, my wife and I are just average size. Hey Ford????
Best FeaturesVery comfortable, fun to drive, automatic 4 wheel drive system is great. I love the sound system and it tows my utility trailer well.
Worst FeaturesTransmission does a lot of shifting, I wish the V-6 was available with a 5 speed manual.
