2006 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Pro: * 4 cylinder engine feels like a V6 * Fit and finish are excellent * Very smooth shifting 5 speed manual transmission * Great factory radio * Good MPG (25.3 average over 4 fill-ups) * ABS standard * No rattles or squeaks * Very easy DIY oil change. Con: * Rear drum brakes * No dual trip odometer * Privacy glass not standard on FWD models * Front discs generate a lot of brake dust. Overall I'm 100% satisfied. This is one SUV that truly earns the "Sport" in "Sport Utility Vehicle". I also enjoy the fact that it hold lots of stuff (33 cubic feet with the seats up and 69.2 with the rear seats down).

Best Features

Radio plays MP3 CD's, programmable keyless remote, peppy engine and the radio stays on after you shut off the car for 10 minutes (and the power windows still work too), then they shut off when you open a door.

Worst Features

Make an outside temperature gauge and privacy glass standard.
