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.

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


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.

This has been a relative trouble-free
vehicle to own/maintain and drive.
Very minor adjustments needed. Handled
by dealer painlessly. Would recommend
this vehicle to anyone interested in
this size SUV


Best Features

Smooth engine and transmission, great standard audio system. Roomy interior. Relatively quiet at hwy speeds for this vehicle.


Worst Features

Moving gear shifter to center console. Heated exterior mirrors. Illuminated door switches. Seats with more ergonomic support. Automatic climate control.

Good car. Ride is a little bumpy at
times and can be a little noisy, but
otherwise great.
