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

Review

I bought my Escape new. I've had it 7 1/2 years & 75,000 miles+. The acceleration isn't too great. Handles well in snow and bad conditions. The last year or so, it's needed a lot of repairs. The struts have been changed and it still has suspension issues (rattles). Recently both the clutch and the clutch master cylinder went out at the same time. A very costly repair (At 72, 000 miles). Two teenagers did learn to drive on it. But I expected it to go longer before needing costly repairs. It has been reliable getting me where I need to go. Doesn't like steep hills too much. And CIncinnati has those. I don't think I'd buy another one though. Too many repairs needed too soon.

Favorite Features

Gas mileage around 20-24 mpg. It sits high up and visibility is good. Also has lots of cupholders. Radio that came standard is of good quality

Suggested Improvements

More power to get up hills needed.
