I got my 2006 Escape with 34600 miles. Ive put close to 4000 miles on it, and it feels like it just got out of assembly line. I love the sunroof on it, and has a nice factory stereo (Mach 300). Exterior styling is nice, but I would love to have body colored bumpers. The headlights and fog lights look great. And even with the new 08+ model out there, it still looks modern. Interior is surprisingly confortable. Five adults have been in my car for an hour drive without any complaints. I like the inserts on the seats, it makes them a lot more easier to clean. Controls are user friendly. The 3.0 v6 engine has a nice kick of acceleration. If you put too much gas on a stop light, you might need new tires before you know it. My only complaint is a little wind noise on high speeds, and maybe no rear disc brakes. Overall, two thumbs up
This car turned out to be exactly what I wished for. It handles just like a car, but has more room for the family and cargo. Mileage was a little lower than I expected, but has improved as car has been driven more. It gets me about 20 mpg right now. You don't have the same cargo capability as a large truck or SUV, but this will only matter if you are hauling construction supplies. It is more than ample room for anything else you might want to haul. Controls are easy to understand, and interior is very comfortable. You have a feeling of safety when you are riding in it. I have the V6, and it takes a little getting used to. It is VERY responsive and will lunge out on you the first few times you hit the accelerator until you get the hang of it. Its nice to know that for a larger vehicle, it has the ability to get up and go if you need it.
It's a great car. Not too big and not too small. Bought it for my teenage daughters to learn to drive but I've been driving it quite a bit myself. I hope my daughters can maintain it through high school. The car we got has the V6 engine. It moves very quickly and nimbly. It gets around 20 MPG in town. The car has very good driver visibility all around. It is also very stable in all weather conditions. Excellent braking characteristics. Love the fog lights at night. They provide great extra visibility. I haven't done any maintenance yet but it looks like doing an oil change ought to be easy. The oil filter is readily accessible even though it's close to the exhaust system.
