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


I picked up a base model Escape for $15,400 before tax and title and couldn't be more satisfied. I have a city/highway commute and average 29+mpg. Plenty of room in the back for hockey equipment and the split foldown seat allows for the sticks to lay flat without using up the whole second row of seating. For a 4 cylinder there is decent acceleration even with the A/C running. Why would anyone buy a car when they can get one of these?

Best Features

Body side panels in matte finish makes for easy wipe down cleaning and helps protect against door dings. Even without privacy glass the windows appear to have tinting.

Worst Features

Add floor mats to the base model.
