- Looks and feels durable, strong engine, smooth ride, excellent power steering
- annoying vibrations on doors when music bass is loud, not enough driver's leg room.
I just bought my Escape 2.3L 4x2 XLS a week ago and i bought it because i love its stance, and looks great. The ride is good and shocks responds well on pot holes. Steering is easy and generally fun to drive. I'm just annoyed by the vibrations on 3 of my doors when my audio music bass is high. I think the plastic made covering on doors has a lot to do with it. Not enough leg room on drivers seat that my leg sometimes hit the dash board underneath. Limited adjustments when lowering driver seats. Lastly, the manual climate control sucks. How can Ford combine the air intake vent and fan control into a single knob? You will only have an enclosed airconditioned cabin when setting the fan at speed 2 in which fan is noisy and gets too cold. Lowering it to speed 1 the vent will open and polluion from outside comes in, and is no way you cold close the vent from console. Its bad when smoke form other cars comes inside the cabin. I would appreciate if i can set the fan speed at 1, but sill has an enclosed airconditioned cabin. I wish I had thoroughly scrutinized it before I buy. The cons only shows when you get to drive one.
