Overall A Very Good Car For Our Family. — Overall this was a good car. Good gas mileage. Excellent acceleration as well as quick pickup on the high end. The car held up well externally as well as internally. My biggest complaint about this car would be the road noise.

Green 2006 Ford Escape. — This is a pretty good car. Has a little bit of speed in it. The Car overall is excellent but it does have a green paint job to it. Has 100,000 miles on it. Other then those set backs its still a 4/5 star car.

Pros

Comfortable ride, perfect height, good fuel mileage, plenty of pep

Cons

Gas gauge and pump cut-off are both wonky: gauge shows only 3/4 tank when full, cut-off shuts off gas flow before tank is full

Small, Sporty, And Fun — Only complaints about this car so far are relatively minor ones: the stereo/CD player doesn't have an auxiliary input for MP3 devices, the gas gauge is off, gas pumps keep shutting off while fueling, and there are a few scratches in the interior paneling. I also miss the ability to make "Jeep turns". Otherwise, I LOVE this car so far... peppy, responsive, smooth ride, and good fuel economy. Both of my parents have ridden in the car with me now, and each is now considering making an Escape their next car!

Love This Vehicle! — Great car. In very good shape. low miles, like new tires. Good interior. 4 cylinder has plenty of pick up and gets great gas mileage. Very roomy interior for size of vehicle, backseats fold for transporting larger loads. I would recommend this car to a friend.

Works As Advertised. — I like the 2006 looks more than the newer models. My wife loves the visibility and nimbleness. Performance is adequate. Braking is good and we feel safe going down the road. We would definitely recommend this car to anyone looking for a compact SUV.

Suv — Great family Vehicle. Awesome on gas. Comfy road trip seats. I drive this SUV when the trucks not around and it gets me where I want to go fine, its just more of a girly SUV. I would've preferred a Dogde Durango :P or a Jeep cherokee/liberty.

Runs Great, Very Few Repairs, If I Was In The Market For An Suv This Is The One I'd Recommend. — Rides good for an SUV, pretty good on gas mileage. Not as comfortable as a luxury car but it will do. Only drawback is having to climb into the car rather than settling down into a nice seat. Back area is big enough to hold 4 sets of golf clubs without taking the big drivers out of the bags like I had to in my Taurus Wagon.
