2007 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Blazing Copper: Great looking vehicle, good ergonomics except the arm rest/center console and cup holders. My wife cannot use because it is too far back. Gas mileage not as good as sticker suggests, about 19-22 with 50/50 highway/city driving. Transmission can sometimes jerk into gear. Also when needing to merge on freeway it's like breaking then jerking into gear. Need to work on that. It is as if the vehicle has trouble deciding which gear it wants. Handling is great, tight turning radius, easy to park and lots of room.

Best Features

Audiofile stereo rocks.

Worst Features

Replace 4 speed auto transmission with a 5 speed auto. Move center arm rest and cup holders forward about 6 inches and get rid of the empty hole. Move fog light switch to center dash where you can get to it.
