2002 Ford Escape SUV XLT Choice 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Fun to drive. Great clearance, speed,
maneuverability.


Best Features

Clearance with four wheel drive. Higher than a sedan.


Worst Features

Details. Comparable models made by Japanese manufacturers have rubber bumpers (inside doors) that our bolted or screwed into the sheet metal. The Escape rubber bumpers just push in and EASILY pop out and get lost.

2002 Ford Escape SUV XLT Choice 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This was my first truely "American"
purchase (my previous car was a '00
Honda CRV), and other than a warranty-
covered fuel sensor issue which caused
the truck to stall at 40 mph, it has
been a reliable, well-crafted, compact
SUV. It has more than enough power
and it's fairly comfortable for my
6'4" frame. The 16-17 city-MPG took a
little getting used to, but the '05
Hybrid is right around the corner!


Best Features

Power, appearance, stereo (standard, 6 In-Dash), ergonomics, manual 4x4 (in addition to auto AWD), rear lift- glass, visability.


Worst Features

Bun-warmers please!(brrrrr!), MP-3 player capabilities, steering wheel audio controls, climate control with air re-circulate button, auto-close sunroof and driver window.

Review

Great vehicle, fun to drive. I've
owned over 30 automobiles including 4
SUV's, but this car is the best value
(looks, performance, quality. price)
for the investment.


Best Features

V-6, sunroof and head/leg room.


Worst Features

Outside temperature gauge, more frills.

Review

I REALLY AM FOND OF MY ESCAPE, HOWEVER,
THE GAS MILAGE HAS BEEN A
DISAPOINTMENT.THERE IS NO WAY THAT THE
TRUCK IS GETING THE ADVERTISED GAS
MILAGE.I AM ALSO SOMEWHAT DISAPOINTED IN
THE PAINT FINISH. THE FINISH SEEMS TO
SCRATCH QUITE EASILY.


Best Features

I LIKE MOST OF THE FEATURES OF THE TRUCK.


Worst Features

BETTER GAS MILAGE AND A TOUGHER PAINT FINISH.QUIETER RIDE.
