The 2004 ford escape limited edition.

2004 Ford Escape Limited

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.

Ford Escape -- Rugged Comfort

2004 Ford Escape Limited

The Ford Escape Limited is a durable, reliable, safe car. It is the perfect size for me -- lots of space in back of the car with the seats down, especially, but still more compact than other SUVs. It is highly maneuverable, and I love the height level while driving. It is also extremely comfortable for people of all sizes in my experience. Comfortable with leather seats and we enjoy the sunroof in the summer. The only issue with this car is the gas mileage.

Black pre-owned 2004 black escape with wear and tear.

2004 Ford Escape Limited

It is reliable despite being an old vehicle. The only problems I have/had were the transmission, fuel pump, and alternator. Those have all been replaced. The only other problem I have is with the power steering. I believe there's a leak causing steering fluid to escape otherwise I have no problems with this aged SUV. I still want a new one though.

Lots of engine issues but has ample room inside and leather interior.

2004 Ford Escape Limited

Had issues since I have purchased it had to already replace engine, interior already ripping, has an oil leak, constant flat tires and engine light stays on but it has gotten me to and from work okay I guess. The seats are comfy and there is okay room inside plenty of room for groceries in the back and seats fold down easily.

- Missy W

I think the vehicle is lucky.

2004 Ford Escape Limited

Constantly having problems with brake pads and having to replace them. The vehicle has a lot of miles on it due to being a daily driver to and from work every day. It is our most reliable vehicle. Other than that, I do not have any other complaints about the vehicle. It has lasted this long.

If you want a car that lasts.. get a Ford.

2004 Ford Escape Limited

Love this car. Bought it brand new in 2005. It has served me very well. There are about 150 thousand miles on it. I get regular maintenance done. Only thing I wouldn't do again is get the sunroof. I have had problems with leaking. Mpg average about 18. Not too bad for an older SUV.

My experience with my ford escape.

2004 Ford Escape Limited

The transmission is starting to go out but it lasted a while. It is spacious, and is comfortable. The trunk is pretty big. Very reliable. My horn stopped working and I had to buy a new battery. The fuel pump gave out, and my speedometer was 5 miles off.
