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

Review

Bought the Escape XLT 4x4 right when it first came out. It has served me well, the only problem was the brakes went out at around 60,000 miles. Around 80,000 miles, the tranny started to make some strange noises and now at 86,000 miles, it is time to get it looked at. Otherwise, it has been a great car...got me out of a couple Wisconsin snow drifts, and now keeps me cool in south Florida. The AC could have a little more ooommmpphhhh. Oh, and the CD player runs really hot and sometimes refuses to eject CDs at times.

Favorite Features

The power is adequate and it gets up and goes pretty quickly because of the low curb weight.

Suggested Improvements

1. Colder & more powerful AC. 2. Better CD player...the 6 disk changer messes up at times. 3. Some electrical problems could be fixed like certain lights being on when they shouldn't, and the brakes lights remaining lit when you've exited the vehicle.
