    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Excellent acceleration!

    Cons: A little loud with road noise.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Car gets excellent gas mileage. Leather seats. Good cargo space. good leg room

    Cons: paint color sea green. 2006 model.

    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!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    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

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great gas mileage
    Never wrecked, no dents, scratches
    Very low miles for 2006

    Cons: Nothing. It does what it is suppose to do.

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good power, handling and economy. My wife loves the car. What else can I say!

    Cons: Seats a bit hard.

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: All around great family vehicle

    Cons: For men, Its kinda on the girly side.

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Economical and AMERICAN made - support workers in our country.

    Cons: Harder for older people to get in and out of.
