Purchased As Used
My girlfriend owned a 2004 Ford Escape and it was a great car. So, when it came time for me to buy a car I did not hesitate to buy another 2004 Ford Escape XLT (she had given hers to her little sister). My favorite part about the car is that it drives like an SUV and not like a sedan. I know some SUVs this size try to make the ride quiet, smooth and comfortable- but that is not what I wanted. You can feel the car accelerate (plenty of power in the V6), turning is great and the ride is rugged yet refined.
The fuel economy is surprisingly good, although it can drop significantly if you really put your foot into it. It is also very comfortable wherever you sit and there is a good amount of room to put cargo (especially when the seats are folded down). Another thing that my girlfriend really liked is that you don't feel lost in the car, the seat is high and you can see (and feel) where every part of the car is.
We have never had mechanical problems with either- just regular maintenance. The good thing about having a Ford is that everyone knows how to work on them and the parts are affordable. Before I bought this car or met my girlfriend (and her car) I would have never bought a Ford; but my experiences just show that Ford is inconsistent and not totally bad all the time. These were two great cars and I still have mine!
