Pros

good gas mileage and great handling for a 4WD

Cons

would like a little more room

35

Good Suv — very nice vehicle. city mileage okay (16mpg) great highway mileage (27 mpg) at best averaging around 21-22 mpg. handles better than most cars. really tight turning radius. decent acceleration and decent brakes. vehicle has 204,000 miles and still running strong. auto 4WD is nice but after driving most of its life on gravel 4WD trys to kick in at random times just a small annoyance though

01 Escape Xlt — I own an 01 Escape V6 FWD, LOVE it so far, drives great, handles great. I bought it from an owner that mostly kept the car in California so I can't attest for body integrity too much, but the car is rust free after almost 9 years. the V6 works great for towing and doesnt really need to downshift until you hit a long hill while towing, I tow a pop up camper about 2500 lbs, handles great with or without a trailer and I have no complaints so far, have not drove it in the winter yet, I think it will do just fine. as for fuel economy, I have got as high as 29 mpg on an all highway trip! with mixed highway and city driving I average around 24, my lowest was 18, towing through hills which still doesn't seem bad to me. Great dependable vehicle overall so far! very practical and easy to maintain.

2001 Escape Xlt — The car of compact SUVs, I really loved this Escape. Extremely comfy, room to spare, and performance that wasn't all that bad. It had a few issues in the time I had it, but I definitely can't say it was horribly unreliable. It even did pretty well off road. Man, i need another one...

Safest Vehical Against Semi Colission. — I like the fact taht its good a nice sound system in it for an SUV i dont liek it that my radio doesn't show time. oh well. will have taht replaced. It is a very strong car. My car has already been backed into once by a semi truck and it stayed in once peice. the only part that gave way was the Rear driver side door. the windows exploded liek a firework had hit it. but in any other words its a Strong Safe and Sturday car. Also dependable.i've goon at least 2000 miles over the limit on my oil change and still had oil in it.

Nice Truck — The truck is roomy has a good ride and equipped with the V-6 it is reasonably quick. It handles off roading reasonably well and gets good mpg for this segment.

Pros

Well all in all a good little SUV, price was good and the fuel is also pretty good. My 3 kiddos and my wife like it and we all fit in it so that is a plus in itself.

Cons

I am a mechanic with about 8 years of experience, and this car is really giving it to me. I seem to be working on it almost everyday.

Reliable And Dependable. — All in all for the price and the dependability good buy. The inside is not at all good for moving with my family in it as far as the cargo space is concerned, but for a beach car this does the trick.

Stupid coil packs!

My Twuck! — I love my truck. It's had coil pack problems but for a car with 140k+ miles on it, that's not bad at all. Just tried out my 4wd in the recent snow, and love it! I would buy this car over and over and over again.

Its Awesome — I miss my escape! I loved that thing. I had awesome gas mileage and it was roomy. My payments was cheap as well as my insurance. I was fun to drive bc i had a sun roof, so I'd drive around with the windows down and the music up.
