A good little SUV

2001 Ford Escape XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I've had my escape for a little over a year (1 yr 4 months) and it still alot of fun to drive. It has alot of pep and is a smooth ride. There is alot of wind noise, but not unbearable. There is plenty of room in the back for passengers. Some downsides are: 1.) it seems to really wear on tires. 2.) My sunroof switch seems to have a short in it, 3.) the cargo cover broke within the 1st 6 months.

Don't Buy this Car!

2001 Ford Escape XLT 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This is the worst car that I have ever leased or owned. It does get decent gas mileage. Ford Red Carpet Leasing was also a very worthless leasing company. If you are considering this pseudo-SUV, please do not waste your money.

Review

Two years are almost up. 24000 miles and just some thoughts. Had to replce the tires at 23000, front end out of alghnmt. Check engine light came on and was fixed by dealer without problems. All in all, a good little truck (wagon?) that my wife loves and I would buy again.

2001 Ford Escape XLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

own v4 5spd xls for exactly one year with 15000 miles. cannot conclude reliability due to shortness of ownership, but no problems so far. impress with price to value and mpg. very roomy inside, great headroom and good trunk space for mini-sub. ideal for small family that requires childseats. shifts smoothly, however engine has "stalling" feeling when coming to a stop. ride is a bit bumpy but expected for a suv. engine noise also a bit loud but ok with me to drown out crying kids!

if you want an SUV with performance and a great ride...this is your ride. If you want an SUV that is pretty good on gass....then this your ride. I would also like to say that it is pretty good in the snow too.

Escape - Not a Ford

Vehicle

2001 Ford Escape XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Things to consider berfore buying: 1.Re-sale - Carmax offered me $18,000 for a 2002 XLT 10,000 miles with every available option (list new was $26,000). Resale is affected by recent poor crash test results in which Hyundai Santa Fe fared better. 2.Mini-spare tire on an SUV is stupid. 3.Drum brakes on rear (it's not 4 wheel disc brakes) so braking is not one of its strengths. CR-V and Santa Fe have 4 wheel disc brakes and real spare tires. 4.Overall cheapness of the Escape. 5.Uncomfortable seats. 6.Thin paint Ford has become noted for. Obviously cost-engineered to the max by Ford. Cheap! Cheap! Cheap!
