Reviewed: 2005 Ford Escape

4dr SUV 200-horsepower 3.0L V6 4-speed automatic AWD

Why the 2005 Ford Escape?

Exterior styling

The vehicle I got came with a nice carrying rack on the top.

Interior styling

The interior is simple and easy to find what your looking for if your new to the vehicle

Why Not the 2005 Ford Escape?

Past personal experience

vehicle computer went bad. (about $800 new one without labor) alternator went bad. (about $300 new without labor and axle has to be dropped to replace) belt came off pulleys on hwy 11/08/2011 vehicle made huge clunk and now drive train issues to be fix

Warranty, maintenance cost

Ford repair places overcharge for maintenance and way overcharge for parts. Parts guys wanted to charge me $153 per coil for generic ford when you can buy top notch aftermarket lifetime guaranteed coils for around $80 a piece

Reliability & durability

The 2005 Ford Escape has been anything but reliable. Every couple 3 months this pile has fed me some more problems that hurt the wallet and leave me scrounging for a credit card to get buy until the next disaster. Do Not Buy This 2005 Curse!
