2009 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Most of my drving is to and from work. Feels solid. No rattles, Tough seeing through rear window when backing up. Chrome Rimms are a waste of money and very hard to keep clean.


Best Features

Sync, Sunroof and Good Stock Stereo


Worst Features

Shifting some starts and at 40mph are a lttle rough and surprising. (maybe the "no charge Customer Satisfaction" software update for the transmission will fix it) Leather Seats are uncomforable in rides over 45 minutes Sunroof noise

2009 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Love the Escape! Has great handling and is very comfy. Needed a vehicle that didn't drag bottom when I was on rough roads. This fits the bill. Very roomy inside for a small SUV. Gets great gas mileage. Would recommend it to a friend.


Best Features

SYNC system. Handling. Roominess.


Worst Features

None.

2009 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Had to take the vehicle back for transmission noise again. Hoot was back in transfer case and sounded like drive shaft was metal on metal, noise disappeared at hwy speeds. Dealer found new tech bulletin for Escape 6 speed transmission issue they applied. Vehicle is now shifting more normally and I don't notice the noises coming from the transfer case. Let's hope this is the last visit to the dealer for the same thing.


Best Features

Sync, Blue tooth


Worst Features

higher quality interior parts so they don't rattle and squeak, more padding in and under carpet to help eliminate exterior noise

Review

Vehicle has been GREAT...it's my wife's car but I love driving it as well. I don't know what Escape Edmond's was driving, but the brakes on this Escape are AWESOME. We love the SYNC package as well as the satellite radio. Fit and finish are second to none. High revving 4 cylinder gets great mileage and has good power. Ford has been doing one hell of a job. Highly recommended. We test drove a Chevy Equinox (Government Motors, I know, please forgive me)and it was a typical GM...poor fit/finish, lots of cheap plastic, etc...even with GM's rebates, we said no way.
