4 years and not one problem!

2001 Ford Escape XLT 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I love my Escape. I was nervous about it being the first model year, but I took the plunge. I've never regretted it. The Escape has great 'get up and go', is fun to drive, sporty & fits everything I need it to. Best of all -- I have not had a single problem with it in 4 years & over 70K miles! I hope to keep mine for another year, and may even go with another Escape when I do finally decide it's time for a change.
