2001 Ford Escape SUV XLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I really love this car! It is an SUV,
but small, has tons of room inside,
yet handles and feels more like a
compact. Although it only has 4
cylinders, since it is a standard, I
get incredible control and
manouverablity. I like that I sit
high enough to have a great view all
around (enhanced by windows
everywhere -> the blind spot is
minimal), it is not so hight that I
need to climb up into it. All around
a really great deal for such a "small"
High seats, lots of room, inside
handles to pull down rear hatch (no
dirt on your hands!), plus the window
Rear window wiper could be bigger and
better postitioned. It only clears a
fraction of the window, plus a
replacement is only available from
Ford and very expensive (about$12!)!

Great SUV that has answered all of our
calls. Gas mileage has been
consistantly in the range of 19 to 22.
Once we got rid of the OEM Firestones
that came with the veheicle its been
unstoppable in snow. We bought the
Escape new and other than a couple of
factory recalls we have had "0"
problems, we would not hesitate in
purchasing another Ford Escape.
