2004 Escape. The cup holders and center boot are convenient.

2004 Ford Escape XLS

I love this vehicle because I am comfortable in the driver's seat. The controls to make that possible are easy to reach and get the right setting for me. The back area is great for luggage, groceries and Christmas Trees. My Grandkids like my car, and to me that is important. Some of them borrow it from time to time. The CD player was a great addition and the radio works well. The side mirrors are controlled from inside and for me that is great. You must be tall enough to step up into the vehicle.

Easy to drive and park kind of car.

2004 Ford Escape XLS

Problems with tube clogged connecting sunroof and bottom of car which leads to rain inside the car. Also fuel pump problem and continual emergency brake light on. It is pretty comfortable and easy to drive and park. It has good trunk room but seats do not provide much room.

My escape is the perfect vehicle for a very active family with multiple pets.

2004 Ford Escape XLS

I very happy with my escape. It has high mileage, we are over 200,000 but very dependable I feel. I've had the suspension all redone on it. The back wheel well is rusting but other than that the body is doing great even after being in Michigan weather since 2004.

Best owned vehicle yet for me

2004 Ford Escape XLS

Sustainable and tough in inclement weather. High mileage and still going strong with minimal problems. Great on gas. Roomy enough for me. Love the look and shape of it. Love the four doors. Have had a lot of recalls on it but I have not had any problems.

Give it a test! Spacious and comfortable for the whole family.

2004 Ford Escape XLS

Runs fine, love that there's 4 doors and a hatchback. Love that we have a sunroof and leather seats. Goes pretty fast pretty quick. Little to no issues with the vehicle. Lots of room for family and kids. Seats fold all the way down for additional space.
