2008 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


For my first ride, this Escape is a choice I have yet to regret. I got it more for safety (for my child), but the design (both interior and exterior) caught my eye from the start. I wish the engine had a little more bite, especially since it's mated with a 5-speed manual, but its not too bad nonetheless. It was worth the money I paid.

Best Features

Blue Instrument panel, standard sound system is nice, safety features are great, smooth ride

Worst Features

Dual brakes on all models should be standard. Bigger engine was addressed in the '09 model, but the '08 model owners are struggling
