Ford Escape


Thinking of purchasing a 2006 and when i started it, it seemed like the engine was a little rough sounding...or like it was on a higher idle than i am use to.. is this normal sound? it started fine and drove fine.

No offense intended, but unless you are very experienced or a mechanic you cannot judge the reliability or condition of a car by listening to the idle or that it 'started fine and drove fine'. DO NOT buy the car without taking it to a shop or to a FORD dealer for a
'pre-purchase inspection'. It will cost you $100 or so. \

Or buy a certified used car. Or buy from a concierge service.

Assuming you are going to spend several thousand on the car, the cost of the inspection is nominal.
