Love It

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


We replaced a troublesome Focus Wagon and love this 2006 Escape. Had 7 miles on it and we took off for Washington State, averaged 29.9MPG at 70 MPH. Rides firm and quiet and handles like a European sedan. We also got $6,000 knocked off the sticker price.

Best Features

Firm well shaped seats. Great visibility. Excellent stereo sound. Perimeter alarm system and auto locking. Lots of pep for a 2.3 liter engine, friend has V6 Tribute 4X4 and thinks our Escape is a V6 also. Outstanding braking system reminds me of a pricey German car I once owned.

Worst Features

Telescoping steering wheel and a dark tint band on the upper windscreen or a visor to fill the gap in the middle. Exhaust could stand a better tuned muffler, ours sounds like one of those little tuner cars with the raspy exhaust.
