I have an 05 escape. and I would not trade it for the world. 130k on the clock and she still runs like a champ. only issue i have had is the alternator. which is in the worst possible location ever. behind and above the half shafts below the exhaust. you have to take the half shafts out to replace the alt. Oil leaks at the valve covers are common on all years of escapes. easy repair to do. i will be fixing mine in a couple of weeks. other than that, it has been the best vehicle for snow and ice. and my wife and i can tow our fishing boat with it.
