- Handles good, comfortable ride, ample cargo area.
- FWD auto shifting is a little clunky, driver's compartment seems a little tight
Two months ago we downsized from an aging '92 Explorer with 150,000miles...to the '06 Escape. This Escape seems to be exactly like the Explorer...only smaller in almost every dimension. Our purchase has turned out to be an acceptable compromise, since we didn't need a vehicle the size of the Explorer any longer...just wanted the "utility" we enjoyed with it. The Escape meets our needs today. The Escape is a little noisier than the Explorer and the shorter wheel base gives it a little bumpier ride. We also hoped for better gas mileage....and so far the Escape is EASY on fuel.
We like it VERY much...and love the color we chose, Blazing copper metallic !! Get a lot of comments about it. We're also enjoying a couple more luxuries ..a moon roof, and CD changer. Overall, we feel the Escape has been a good choice. And we hope it provides good, long term service....read morehide

If I was going to buy another SUV, it would be the Ford Escape....read morehide

- Rides like a truck
I purchased this vehicle brand new, fully loaded XLT sport model and I love it. It's an SUV, but it's not a tank. It's classy looking and sporty at the same time. It has plenty of room for the family and storage.
