Customer Review Summary for 2006 Ford Escape
Efficient, economical, practical
2006 Ford EscapeCody Allen - Homestead, FL01/09/2016
I wanted a vehicle that could navigate South Florida flood waters effectively, be easy on the budget, and safe on the road. I got all 3 priorities with the Ford Escape. It uses about the same mileage as my Hyundai Elantra sedan, a great thing, drives smoothly, and so far has been economical. I took out a service agreement because it is an older model and some items will need replacement.

Coming from a compact car, this is the perfect size. It has ample room for four adults and expandable cargo room for larger items. I don't care what they say about 5 passengers, the 5th will be miserable back there so keep it at 4. V6 is nice and smooth compared to the 4 cylinder. 4 speed auto is ok but not great, probably why Ford went with 5 and 6 speeds later. Wouldn't mind being able to turn off the traction control and manually controlling the 4x4. Then again, when the ice hits, probably best to let the computer handle that if I'm doing emergency manuevers. Anyone that lives in Chicago or Milwaukee understands ice and snow hazards. Considerable stopping power with these brakes, which surprised me. Always heard SUVs are slow to stop. Overall I think this is a great little SUV for those that want 4x4 security, ample hauling ability with cooler styling than a Volvo wagon and you don't need a credit card to keep it full of gas.
Plus, you can accessorize the heck out of these little trucks. : )
