2006 Ford Escape XLT AWDReview

A Dependable Car —

It lacks desired horsepower, but makes up for it with its spectacular AWD system. It is probably the most bad weather dependable car my family has ever driven. It can take the worst winter road conditions and plow through them without missing a beat. It has ample room in the back end for luggage, and plenty of leg room in the front seats. The back seat lacks much leg room, and is not very comfortable for extended road trips. Its gas mileage leaves much to be desired as well as its engine power. The Escape, like almost all small SUV's in its class, lacks proper ventilation for the back seats. It is either freezing cold or boiling hot in the back while the front seat passengers must either freeze or burn up in order to get the air movement necessary to maintain comfortable temperatures in the back. It doesn't have the best sound system, but it doesn't lack quality. Overall, it is a good car if you need to go anywhere or get through anything. As a practical family car, or as a around the city car, it is not the best choice, but on those snowy and stormy days you'll be glad you have it.

Pros: AWD system, cargo space, and dependability.

Cons: Engine power, mileage, back seat room and air flow.

Drives Like A Car, Smooth And Responsive. — Not an all-out 4X4 but had 4X4 capability so can't go everywhere, but has surprisingly good mud-slugging ability.

Pros: Styling, comfort, responsiveness, smootness, refinement.

Cons: Little heavy on petrol, but it's  4x4, so no surprises. Not enough oddments containers in the centre console.

Stay Away! — i had this trash as a rental briefly: i got this "suv" stuck in half a foot of mud. interior is made of recycled plastic (dont know this 4 a fact, just feels that way) motor through the rev range sounds weak and dull, the brakes are not to rely on for quick stops handing is complete joke & i assure you this car tips easily

Pros: foglamps

Cons: chassis, motor, interior, design

An All-around, Quick And Durable Suv, Perfect For College! — The exterior is very clean, with little excess crap to take away from it. The only downside is the tall plastic cladding on the bumpers and sides of the vehicle. The interior is also clean, with cloth seats. The dash is kind of tacky, made of plastic. The visibility is average SUV, with typical blind spots, though they are not too large. Performance wise, this is a quick SUV for it's class. Under 10 seconds to 60 and well spirited enough for passing. Handling is only average. This is due to the fact that it IS an SUV, but the Continental tires are noisy around corners, love to squeal, and are just not that great.

Pros: 0-60, easy revving engine, and ability to activate fog lights with parking lights.

Cons: Long gears, which leads to slower acceleration, handling, noisy tires, loss of power above 75 mph when put to the floor.

Excellant, Serviceable, Everyday Vehicle. 200k Miles And Still Kicking. — I have no complaints with this car other than the layout of the transmission cooler. The hatchback is handy. Its not a large SUV, I've owned an Expedition, this one is just as good in its own way, certainly as tight, just not quite as heavy on the road and missing the third row seats. May be a little light in the back end if you are driving in in climate weather. This transmission has been pushed to the limit and is still tight. I cant imagine many better values out there for your money, short or long term.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Just a good serviceable car, low maintenance, 4cylinder aut

Cons: Design flaw in radiator location allows gravel to peck holes in transmission cooler. Consider installing a piece of expanded metal over that area and save yourself a headache if you drive through much gravel or construction.
