Only improvement would be the ride, it's a truck.

by from Green Bay WI on April 11, 2007

2004 with 22000 miles when I Bought it. Now has 33000 and it's a gem. Put nitrogen in the tires and now get about 24-26mpg. Nice.

The 6 cylinder is peppy but not great on mileage 18 city 24 country. It handles beautifully and the visibility for the driver is the best of any car I have owned. Short wheelbase allows great maneuverability in the city and parking lots. It drives like a sports car. You sit higher than the average and can see over sedans when in traffic. Lots of storage space with the back seats down.

This is my big purchase vehicle and it has a great bang for the buck. I love all the features, except I wish the back seats would fold flat without having to take out the head rests. It's great for hauling and without the 4 wheel drive it still drives great in the snow.

Bought this car new in 2004 and have been thrilled with it from day one. I have the 6 cyl which is not the best on gas, but it gives you that pep that I want when I'm driving on the highways. I've been thinking about a new car for a while now, but it always comes back to I can't bring myself to get rid of the Escape.

I have had my Escape for a little over 6 months and have had a great time driving it. I think it’s a great car, especially for the price. The only down side I can find on my Escape is the manual version is a little harder to drive than a standard SUV and the seats could use more adjustment options. Overall, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable car that has plenty of interior room and great on gas.

by from Noorthern Michigan on December 12, 2007

Great fuel economy. Wonderful value! 100,000 miles and no problems, original brakes and tires and 24 mpg, hard to beat.
