Very useful little suv

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


I have 42,000 miles and no problems except for the trans leak recall. I do mixed driving and average 21 mpg with the 3 liter v/6. Twice a year I tow about 3000 lbs of boat, and trailor. The 3500 lbs tow rating is maxed. The newer 3.5 v/6 may tow better, due to more power. I do like the vehicle.

Best Features

good stereo, folding rear seats make for plenty of room. Heat and ac are very good. This is a nice little and very useful SUV.

Worst Features

More power for better acceleration with or without a trailer being towed.
