    2008 Ford Escape XLT V6 Review

    Fun Little Suv — Very pepy and fun to drive. So far no repairs have been needed. Exterior styling is very classy. The seat material stains easily with even the rain getting on them leaves a stain. A great car for around town but a little small for a family of 4 to go away.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Just regular maintenance required

    Cons: Seats stain easily

    It Looks Good And Performs Like An Suv Should. — The V6 engine is a strong accelerator. Handals well. Never needed repair. The new styling is better than the previous model. It gets great gas milage, usually 22 MPG. It is a fun suv to drive if a bigger one is out of reach.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: If you want an economical suv.

    Cons: If you don't like a bouncier ride.

    I Like Everything About The Truck Except The Seats Staining So Easily. — My Escape has only 7,000 miles on it and the seats are staining. If they get any raindrops or any kind of water on them they leave a stain. My advice is to buy one with leather seats. I have read that this is a very common problem with these seats. For what I paid for this vehicle the darned seats should not stain. Come on Ford dont force me to buy Japanese. I am the only person who rides in this SUV and it is kept spotless yet the seats stain. Who can figure. Cheap material??

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: All positive so far except seats staining

    Cons: Seats stain easily

    Escape — It starts faster than anyone, stops very nicely, and has an amazing turning radius. Its not top heavy. Its big enough for my soccer, horseback riding, and tennis gear but small enough to fit itno almost any parking spot. My dad's lincold MKZ is a bigger car but this one is way more fun to drive!

    Pros: great turning radius

    Cons: stops at 110

    Ford Escape — A little heavy on the gas, but after all, it is a truck! It's the only thing that's going to get me through winter! I can't wait to try the traction control in the snow. It did work very nicely on a bit of dirt on the road. Gas consumption will be higher in the winter I'm guessing!

    Pros: Roomy, and powerful,

    Cons: Sirius radio needs features improvement.

    Ford Escape — Overall good, good ride with minimal bumps. Great addition with the GPS. could use a better engine because it can only reach a maximum speed of 90. good MGP rating. good caban space for transporting things. overall a fun car to drive. could be helpful for the break petal and gas petal to be the same level.

    Pros: good MGP, excelent GPS.

    Cons: Better Engine, difference between break adn gas pedal.
