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


Review

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"
package.


Best Features

High seats, lots of room, inside handles to pull down rear hatch (no dirt on your hands!), plus the window opens, too.


Worst Features

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!)!

I think this vehicle is great. I have
to drive 200 miles 2 days per week and
since its mainly freeway, I can go the
200 miles on 1/2 tank of gas.

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.
