    2005 Ford Escape - XLT 3.0L Automatic (400B) 4x4

    Pros: V6 power, moonroof, interior

    Cons: gas mileage

    Advice: make sure to look into this vehicle if you are in the small SUV market

    Just bought an XLT 4x4. The ride is awesome, and is by far the best looking small SUV out there. The V6 provides great power, and I'm glad I didn't settle for the 4 cylinder. The gas does go pretty quick, but not enough to make much of a difference. It averages about 22 mpg. Go for the moonroof if possible.
