2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Well, the first thing was the battery
it went within a month would not hold
water, had to wait until they got
another from Mexico? And when
installed they left it filthy. Second
was the drivers window, when lowered
was rubbing on panel had to be
replaced. Third, a recal for staling
at 40 or over MPH we inquired and were
told it was not a 2002 problem as with
the 2000's and 2001's. And the most
scary the bearings were going out on
the front wheels. We noticed on right
turns around bends going over 40 a
noise, thank someone above we did not
let it go.
We swore no more American Cars and now
are back to that.
Looks, the way it handles, stopping,
sound, very pretty SUV get a lot of
compliments we take very good care of
it and had the rear windows etched
looks great with the tint.
Someone needs to to really check these
before going out of the factory. Its a
shame because we want to buy American,
but our Toyota had 245,000 when we
sold it and passed smog with flying
colors, so did our Volvo.
