2009 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


After 6 months of research and numerous test drives, it was love at first drive. Handles extremely well with great visibility and surprising power from the 240hp 3 liter. The 6 speed transmission took a little getting used to with near seamless shifting. We've experienced around 20mpg in town and 27mpg on the highway. Nicely laid out with leather interior and chrome accents, ambient floor lighting and the Sync system which in my opinion, is a must for anyone who owns a cell phone. I have not doubt that "the boss" will be enjoying her SUV for a very long time!

Best Features

Sync system, sun roof, power seats, and information center.

Worst Features

Emergency brake easy to accidentally engage when entering vehicle. An inch or two further under the dash would take care of that.
