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


Review

An insightful warning to anyone considering purchasing this vechile..... don't do it. I bought brand new and have had to replace the engine, the steering column (twice) the door locks, repair the air conditioner, power outlets. The chip has been reprogrammed too many times to count....... and it still has problems. This thing is a death trap.

2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Just took my Escape to the dealer for the 30k checkup - they told me that the ROTORS were shot (WHAT!! after 30k?)...will be following up with Henry Ford on this one....so get your brakes checked often..apparently the Escape eats them up. Other then this little $500 blow-up the Escape has been good to me.


Best Features

Styling, engine, CD changer.


Worst Features

GET THE GEARSHIFT OUT OF THE WAY OF THE RADIO AND CLIMATE CONTROLS - HAVE ALMOST REVERSE DROPPED 100 times!

2002 Ford Escape XLS Value 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The car is a ton of fun to drive; the 5-speed makes it hard to believe that you are driving an economical 4-cylinder. It rides smooth and handles like a car. You can park anywhere, and there is more room inside(for both people and cargo) than you would think. Gas milage has been higher than expected as well. A year and a half after purchase, I am very satisfied.

Review

Fun to drive. More interior room than I anticipated just by glancing at them in parking lots. The V-6 has nice pick up. A great looking SUV, not too small like some but not too big like others. Gas mileage is definately a plus.


Best Features

Love the mach stereo system. Full size (16") tires are a plus. Enough room for three kids and two labs in the very back.


Worst Features

Passenger side power seat option. Locking gas cap. Climate control for AC and heater.
