2008 Ford EscapeCOLDGEN - RED OAK, TEXAS05/12/2009
My 2008 Ford Escape is a Limited model with sunroof, nav. system, and leather. It provides a very smooth ride which is more car like than truck like. Mpg's average around 20 in combined city and highway driving. Seats fold down in a 60/40 split for cargo space or in my case Doberman space. So far no problems mechanically or electronically and I love the model's beefy look without the black, lower 1/4 panel that surrounds previous years models. Overall a very good value for the money!
Love my Escape

I really like my 2008 Escape. It looks like a serious suv. I can haul my garage sale finds and still get good gas mileage. It handles well and is easy to park. I love the keypad that assures I won't get locked out of the car.
Couldn't be Happier
2008 Ford EscapeHappy in Hollywood - Los Angeles, CA01/23/2012
After two months of driving my 2008 Escape Limited, premium package, 4WD, 6 cyl, with navagation system, I am really happy with this car. MPG in the city is about what I expected, 17 MPG, but much better on the freeway, 25-26 mpg. Took it off road in Big Sur and it handled the rutted, winding dirt road really well. The Escape definitely rides more like a small truck than a sedan. Leather seats and black interior are very nice looking for a car in this price range. I haven't used all the navagation system features but the street destination option is very easy to use with the touch screen input. Plenty of room in the back storage area for my needs. My only complaint is that the front seats are very stiff and not really that comfortable on a long trip.
