Advice: great time to buy SUV--esp if you have a growing family and need one; great stock of used ones; skip hybrid for now--approx 22-26 mpg for 2006 and the hybrid only offers 30 mpg--for almost $10K more!Quiet engine; sleek look for an SUV; roomy inside without feeling like you're driving a tank; unexpected amenities for a 2006 model such as 6-CD changer, leather interior, moon roof, extra storage in cab. We love this vehicle, how it handles, and how functional it is.
Pros: Lots of room
Cons: Haven't found anything yet
Advice: We love it.We were looking for an economy vehicle and have a new baby. Therefore, we opted for the 4cyl 5speed for the 24 to 28 mpg rating. It has decent power and even the base XLS came with power windows, Automatic door locks and security system, CD player, etc, etc. It drives very nice, a tad stiffer than a car, but no where near my truck. Handles great, and feels 'zippy'. It is easy to get around in and holds a bunch of stuff. All the baby gear, and you can still shop without fear of having to stuff things in.
Cons: cant think of any right now
Advice: Get the V6 you will not be sorryAfter looking at many different styles of SUV's we decided on the Escape, The vehicle is by far the best I hae owned and does well in all types of conditions It has decent fuel economy and plenty of power with the V6. Over all it is a fun and pleasurable car to drive for daay to day life.
