By Stick shift fanatic on
2002 Ford Escape XLS Value 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I love the 5 speed stick shift . It was great
getting this with 4WD. Handles great in bad
weather. Seating is comfortable especially
with teenagers in the back seat. It is fun
driving my sporty bright red Escape.
It has a great turning radius. I am able to get
into tight spaces easily. Love the 5 speed
4WD. The styling is great. Can still haul
alot of things without having a huge vehicle.
Would be nice to have more power than the
2.0 engine with the manual transmission.
Fog lights would be great standard on all
Escapes. (Was not even optional on the
vehicle I wanted).
