2008 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


I bought this car because I was moving upstate. It has been extremely reliable and has handled the 140 miles per day with ease. It has been great in the snow & the rain and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an economical SUV. The engine does have something to be desired when it comes to power but I knew that I had to comprimise on that if I was going for a 4 cylinder - great on gas. So far it has 69,000 miles and I have replaced 1 tire, 1 brake job, and a small transmission coolant leak ($180 to repair)..So feel free to buy it. I planning to give it to my son when he graduates college in 2 years..That is how confident I am in its reliabilty.

Best Features

I enjoy the outside styling but the interior could use a little more pizazz.

Worst Features

Improve the interoir layout, especially the whole radio and environmental central console..it is too cumbersome to deal with when you are driving by yourself.
