2006 ford escape . Love it. Comfort drivable, and dependable, just what we need.

The vehicle is great. It drives better in snow and icy conditions than any of the regular 4-wheel drives I have ever driven. It has all wheel drive and goes practically everywhere. The only problem I have had with it is the air conditioner compressor. It went out and was a hassle getting fixed, they ended up replacing it twice before getting it right. I think it would be a little better if the cargo area was extended about another foot. It would give a little more room to haul stuff, I live off the beaten track (off grid) and buy groceries and other things on a monthly basis so I fill the little SUV up to overflowing most of the time. Other than that the ford escape is dependable, runs great on the highway and off road, looks nice, and always seems to do what I need it to do. I have a small trailer that I pull with it when getting building material and large items. It pulls it like it is not even there. The leather interior is nice and easy to maintain just wipe it down every now and then with leather cleaner/conditioner. The stereo is ok. Sounds great but I live in an area without good reception. We do not even have cell phone coverage in my area. So we listen to CD's a lot. The power seat helps a lot. My wife is barely five feet tall while I am over six feet so every time she goes to town we always have to readjust the seat and mirrors which only takes a second with the power adjustments. I am very happy with the escape and hope I can get another as good when this one is worn out. We've had it 13 years now and it just keeps on running like a new one.

(personal summary of 2006 Ford Escape).

Great vehicle however it is been giving me break problems and turns out the light on the dashboard where it says the breaks have a problem but, however that light only turns out sometimes. One minute my car can be find the next minute my brakes are hard to stop. But my vehicle is great on gas, also it is very good for going on rocky places. It is comfortable for me in the front seats like the passenger seats and mines but for some reason the back seats are not as comfy. One thing I do not like about the car is the radio. It does not have a AUX cord hole so you can put your AUX cord music and listen to it. The air conditioner sometimes is not that cold. Even though my car has tiny problems it is heavily reliable because the gas last me really long and I have to travel lot of places back and forth.

reliability. We travel a lot and the vehicle is a four cylinder and is great on gas mileage

My 2006 Ford Escape has been the most reliable car I have ever had. It has over a hundred twenty miles on it and has had no major issues. It rides very smooth. We did all the regular maintenance and everything still runs like it did when we purchased it. I personally like the fact that the windshield is very large. I am short and I am able to see clearly. The vehicle, holds the road in various road conditions, although I have never driven it in snow because I live in the south. The paint still remains shiny and bright. overall I would suggest the ford escape to anyone. It hauls all my gardening supplies and much more. It also has enough room in the secondary seats for people to be comfy. We love the Escape
