The 2004 ford escape limited edition.

My vehicle is experiencing an oil leak, has a small chip in the windshield, and has minimal rust. The stereo is not the factory one. It is an aftermarket. I do love the feel of the ride of it, even though it would be better with newer tires. The seats are comfortable. It has plenty of interior room. I don't like that you have to put the seat belt on otherwise it makes a dinging sound till you put it on. I like that it also has a port to charge things or to plug things in when we go camping. The car came with two sets of mats. One set is carpet and the other is rubber with areas that would catch the water from your shoes when it is raining or snowy. I love that it has 2 anchors for my granddaughters car seat, that makes me feel much safer when she is in the car with me, which is often. It has child safety locks that can be used on all 4 the doors and for the windows in front.

Navy blue 2004 Ford Escape.

I prefer this body style over the newer Ford Escapes. I feel like it comfortably fits 5 people with plenty of room. The cargo space is large enough I even was able to place my bike inside. The roof rack is awesome and works really well for hauling my two kayaks. I've had some problems with the radiator and transmission early on but in ten year of having this car its been very reliable. Excellent in the snow especially with the 4 wheel drive. The only downfall in the lack of technology in this age of car. I'll be needing to upgrade soon.

Rock solid car that is very reliable, especially for families.

It is a very sturdy car. Ford did a nice job of designing in safety and comfort. Reminds me of the old Jeep grand Cherokee. This is a little more refined with cloth seats, carpet and door panels. The Jeep had a lot of plastic, vinyl and rubber matting. Nice space for carrying a dorm-room of gear. Back seat folds down flat. The last time I had to move furniture, I was amazed at how much you can pack in there. It is easy to work on the engine and suspension system. However, it tends to rust out the wheel arches.
