2006 Ford Escape - XLS 2.3L (120A) FWD
Pros: Even Base Model has Power Windows/Mirrors/CD Player.
Cons: Hard to get Seat Covers to Fit the Side Bolstered Seats.
Advice: XLS Buyers, get the Convience Package Option. It's worth the few extra hundreds.This little sport youte dosn't seem large from the outside, but it quickley swallowed nearley all my tools from the old truck and still has a good amount of storage left in the back. The rear seats have a good amount of leg room, and all 4 seats are comfortable. Drives great, very nice riding vehicle. The 2.3L 4 Banger has livable power, and I'm getting 18MPG with pure city driving.
