Maybe isolated. I traded in my Escape
before the 3 year/36000 mile warranty.
Had multiple electronic issues. Dash
lights would go out, stereo lights,
brake lights.They were fairly minor
but I wasn't about to keep after
warranty expired.Would Still have car
otherwise. It;s fun to drive, milege
wasnt' too bad

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


Review

I really like my Escape. It moves
well, handles well and is comfortable
for my 6'1" frame. Visability is
excellent and parks nimbly. At 31,000
miles my only problems have been a
faulty CD player and some weird
electical problems when it rains hard.
I am concerned about reliability over
time, especially the electronics.
Overall, I enjoy it, use to carry lots
of stuff and would recommend it to
others.


Best Features

Driving visability, peppy acceleration, good ride, comfortable seating


Worst Features

Change gear selector lever, improve the CD player, re-do dash wiring

Review

I bought the Escape in 2001 because I
wanted an SUV that wouldn't "break the
bank" with gas mileage. I consistently
get 20 MPG and have had only one
mechanical problem. I have 50000 miles
on it with no intentions of trading it
in. I love this SUV!!


Best Features

V6, roomy interior, 6 disk CD player, and sunroof.


Worst Features

They could have done without the plastic at the bottom of the exterior. The newer Limited Escapes are solid. It looks much better. The seats could also stand to be a little more comfortable. They are fine for city driving, not for extremely long trips.
