Vehicle

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


Review

We've got 33K miles now and things are starting to go wrong. The driver's door is sticking, the car stalled at 45 mph and it's getting harder to start in cold weather. Overall it's a good vehicle, but I wouldn't get the V-4. Stick with the V-6 and don't pay more than $22,000.


Best Features

Power of the V-6 engine.


Worst Features

Very cheap looking interior needs an upgrade.

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


Review

Other than the rattles from the rear, which were fixed by the dealer, my Escape has been relatively trouble free. Drives like a car, with good handling and plenty of power. I would recommend this vehicle for anyone.


Best Features

Horsepower and handling.


Worst Features

Quieter tires/ride (at highway speeds) and upgraded plastics.
