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


Prior to our purchase, we test drove Chevy HHR & Equinox (neither impressed us), Suzuki Grand Vitara (lacked performance); Saturn Vue (lacked style); Jeep Compass (poor quality). We're happy with the Escape. Handles the hill country well, excellent quality, ride, performance. We also like the appearance over competitive makes. Nice features, but gas mileage in our 4WD model is not impressive (16 mpg) and we need darker window tint to handle the Texas sun. Impressive driveability on wet & dry roads.

Best Features

Moonroof; flat cargo area with easily reconfigured rear seats; looks & performance.

Worst Features

We hoped for better gas mileage with our 4.0.
