Very Nice Small SUV
By JimmyD on


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


Have owned my 06 Escape for almost a year now. Great Vermont car - great in snow / bad weather. Had no problems until recently - had one ABS speed sensor go bad. The Ford dealer quickly diagnosed and fixed. Snappy performance with the 6 cyl, tows my 17 foot runabout boat without a problem. Roomy for a small SUV. OK gas mileage (22mpg). Seats very comfortable but stain easily (with just water). I've steam cleaned several times. Scotchguard helps.

Best Features

AWD for VT winter driving, roomy for small SUV. Performance, handling, looks. Also great stock stereo w/ subwoofer and 6CD changer.

Worst Features

Upholstery stains easily. Need external temp. gauge (a safety feature for VT!) My '95 Explorer had one, why doesn't the Escape??
