2006 Ford Escape SUV XLS 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this vehicle in 2006 and have loved it but.... at 30,000 the gas pedal kept getting stuck... in the up position so I couldn't step in the gas unless I slammed my foot down. I had it fixed and they told me they replaced the linkage. It was fine after that. 1 year and 2 days later it happened again (2 days past part warranty) and the Ford dealer would not honor that. Low funds makes it hard to fix and Ford will not help. They tell me "its my problem." For a part to go twice really doesn't say much and such an important one.


Best Features

It is fun to drive. I feel it's spacious.


Worst Features

After owning it a while the road noise does become loud. Also hear a clanking underneath when I go over a bump. And the gas peddle sticks.

Great blend of economy and quality. Not quite as roomy as an Explorer, but is a lot more reasonable on gas and better for parking, etc.


Best Features

Interior design is very comfortable even for long trips. lots of room.


Worst Features

cabin is a little noisy, could be improved.

Review

There is one minor flaw in this vehicle that is such a major distraction to the driving experience that I have grown to hate the Escape completely. I drive up to 60,000 km(35,000 Mi) every year and the uneven tire wear that mysteriously happens with these vehicles leads to obscene levels of noise while driving. The dealership and other garages seem aware that the Escape has this issue but don't seem aware of how horrendous an issue this is for a high mileage driver. The only advise the dealer could offer was to rotate the tires every 5000km instead of 10,000. For me that would mean a tire rotation every 4 weeks which is just not feasible! NOTE- uneven wear is not a result of wheel alignment.


Best Features

No favorite features... most features would just rate an "average" from me.


Worst Features

Fix whatever the problem is that causes uneven tire wear. Other vehicles i have owned such as Honda CRV did not have this problem.

Review

I bought this car in june of 08. it was a great car for about 20 miles. then a wheel bearing went out and completly ruined my two front tires. the windows rattle, alot of random noises and the stereo is going bad for a third time. Its not a bad car but i would have never bought it if i woulda known. Lots of little issues. And it beeps wayyy to much. gets very annoying very fast.


Best Features

Descent gas mileage


Worst Features

Well i suggest staring over. Buy a honda or a better brand, Ford is bankrupt
