"Bought Escape in May of 2004 right after mid year updates. It has been reliable given it is approx 11 years old. I would recommend Ford products to anyone."

"Great SUV, good milage, great power, towing pkg. hauls everything without drag on engine. Good Medium size SUV, even hauled a refrigerator. Seats fold easily. Paint holds up very well. Only needs regular maintenance like oil change tires and lube, battery. Only one major repair in 10 yrs! Fuel pump. 105,000 miles- same preformance as when purchased. Excellent year for Ford Escape! So good I hate to think about selling and may keep for 2nd vehicle!"

"The last of the truck-like compact SUVs, the older Escapes have a lot of utility and capability. I have near 200,000 miles of trouble-free driving with this one. I wish someone still made a true compact utility (boxy, good rear visibility, opening rear glass), especially with a manual transmission."
