Looks Great and Very Reliable!
By russter on


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


My 09 Escape has far exceeded what I expected.
Unlike the review, this is a very reliable SUV, no problems at all through 50K+ miles, good pickup when I need it, average 22 to 23 MPG, (actually tracked via receipts) despite pulling a trailer quite often.
Had a front and rear end wreck, not my fault, the car behind was totalled, the truck in front was damaged, my Escape got new bumpers and lights and some body work!
It's quiet inside, unlike my just traded in Honda Pilot. Engine has a perfect sound when you floor it otherwise, it has a understated gentle purr that I like.
The 2nd. row is much easier to fold down than Edmunds would have you believe, and, it's made in K.C., MO, USA!
