Customer Review Summary for 2006 Ford Escape
2006 Ford EscapeGarnet Fader - Peyton, CO08/31/2016
It is very slow, I was not able to do a very long test drive due to the weather, or I would have seen how slow it is. it gets great gas millage but no get up and go.
Lots of strong points
2006 Ford EscapeDaddy Joe - Gary, IN02/05/2008
Very stable handling for an SUV. Minimal body roll in turns. The V-6 provides more than adequate performance with good mileage. It warms up quickly and delivers plenty of heat. Comfortable driving position, although the steering wheel seems a little far away for taller drivers. I prefer the old-style pivoting tilt steering wheel, as opposed to the newer wheel where the column moves up and down. Could also use a bigger, better positioned left-foot rest.
Nice high-raising lift-gate, no problem with a six-footer banging their head on it when open. The rear seat headrests do constrict the rear view somewhat. The running boards are mounted so high as to be practically useless, and require a bit of a stretch to get in without bumping your leg on them. The layout of tandem cup-holders is a bit awkward, as is access to the center console storage. More padding on the lid of the console would make a better armrest, too.
Overall, though, I'm very happy with my Escape. The audiophile sound system is very good, the interior is mostly well-laid out and user friendly, and there's plenty of front seat leg-room.
Just a great expereance

I was looking for a used, smaller, SUV. I found it. The Ford Escape is a great vehicle, all you have to do to find that out is drive it. It comes with a lot of features that my previous cars did not, and I got what was standard on a vehicle.
