Can't stop driving it

2006 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


I had a 2000 Blazer before my 06 Escape. What an improvement. Ford put together a very nice vehicle. Such a fun car to drive. Front wheel drive, independent 4 wheel suspension, big tires, a well balanced suv. Responsive V6, no rattles, quiet, handles very well. Gas mileage is very acceptable. 21 city, 24-25 hwy. As I mentioned, I can't stop driving it. Being on a fixed income, its hard to not get in it every day and put on 20-30 miles just enjoying it. The $3.00 per gal is hard to handle but hay, IT'S SO MUCH FUN TO DRIVE! Being a previous suv owner, I can say this vehicle is a winner.

Best Features

Quiet, no rattles, good power, V6 runs so smooth at idle, good view through windshield.

Worst Features

The tilt steering has very little travel. May-be 1-1/2" to 2" up and down.
