Very Good car

Have had our escape since new 2004 Wife drives on dirt road everyday The only problem we have is replace tie rod ends and warped manifold (driving in water) and getting hit by Kangaroos We also have put camber adjusting bolts on to correct camber . Wife loves the car even with column shift.

Tip when going up hills take out of overdrive Much better for gearbox and motor
Plenty of Grunt Plenty of ground Clearance
Dont use internal accessory wiring for fridge Get higher resistance wire put in Easy takes about an hour  Show details

great car

had my brand new hot red escape for 3 weeks. goes well on highway & off road. everyone who sees it say it looks so good!!!!

i compared all the small suvs on the market & for the 28k that i paid i have an absolute bargain!

the only feature it has not got is the esc but having just returned from holiday, it handled beautifully on all types of roads

Good

My husband and I have a 2003 XLS and recently sold it as he got a company car. We took this car on the beach on several occassions and it was fantastic. It was easy to drive around the city and not too big for day to day use. A great size for a small family. We lost alot of money on this car when we sold it, Fords dont hold their value well. Probably a great car to pick up second hand!
Great sized 4x4, great on the beach, easy to drive.
decline in value quickly

Terrible

Is quite a functional car, but simply not worth the price
Handling is excellent, plenty of space internally
unattractive externally, low fuel usage, hard to accelerate

We have had our V6 3.0 from new; now 55000km.Used mostly as a town car with some longer trips. Never had a problem. Not hard on tyres not too bad on fuel around town. Seems to like the 10% methanol (or ethanol)blend. Very comfortable seats & women love the storage spaces for their handbags.
Very pleasant to drive both in city or country. Like the auto selector being on the steering column + the cruise control is tops.
Front axle tends to make a (low level)running noise. Very thirsty when towing anything heavier than a small trailer. Would not recommend anything more than a small pop top.

This is a great little 4WD. I wouldnt call it a soft roader as it can tackle some steep and rocky stuff. Its comfortable inside with lots of space and lots of area to store your gear, be it in the rear or the storage compartments located throughout. Its more composed on the roug stuff than the Suzuki Vitara which i have also driven. It also has lots of safety gear, so nomatter what happens you should arrive safe. Very impressed by what this little 4WD can do.
Escape XLT: Good for city touring and yet will take you fishing, camping or hiking in the mountains. Very comfortable inside. Isnt a petrol hog. Looks good.
