My 2006 Ford Escape review

2006 Ford Escape XLS

The car is good. It's pretty good on gas. It holds some fluid. Regular oil changes, transmission fluid changes etc. The only problem I have is that if the ac goes out and it's not repairable from under the hood it's going to cost an arm and leg to get a little tiny leak fixed because they need to take off the entire dashboard and steering wheel to get to the problem. Not having ac is probably my biggest problem. The check engine light tends to come on and off even when the problem has been repaired. Probably sensory issues from being an older car, but overall a really good car.

Great vehicle to own for a family.

2006 Ford Escape XLS

This car drives smoother than any vehicle I've ever own before. I've had it for thirteen years, and have hardly had any problems with it. It's very roomy. Can hold 5 people plus luggage comfortably. The only problem I have is that one of the doors isn't connecting well. The open door light is always on, and sometimes the alarm goes off randomly.

2006 ford escape, a great car

2006 Ford Escape XLS

I have not had any problems with my car, no repairs etc. It is a great car, I have 107k miles and no problems. It has a good size rear in back. Tailgate opens or just window for placing in or out items. The car has nice comfortable seats and seats in back fold down to hold more larger items. They are also one larger than other

My car takes me anywhere in one piece.

2006 Ford Escape XLS

I love my car because it's simple! Power windows and locks, but no computer screen to distract me. I feel safe in my car. It is also very spacious for both your legs and for shopping or moving. It has taken me to Florida from New York and vice versa. With kept up maintenance, barely any money has been put into repairs.
