2008 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


My 3yr/60,000km lease is about to expire and I've decided to share my thoughts. This SUV is my first FORD product and has met my expectations. The transmission cooler went at about 40,000km and was replaced and covered in the lease. Other than that, the 3.0lV6 and powertrain have been very good and the SUV has done flawlessly on many trips across Alberta and British Columbia.

Best Features

Excellent road visibility, much better than any in its class. Reliable, even in the harsh Canadian winters Nimble and responsive electronic steering

Worst Features

Tailgate is heavy and clunky 4 speed auto is outdated and not so fuel effiecent
