2002 Ford Escape XLS Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I have owned my Escape for over two years and never had a problem. The engine is very responsive and doesn't do a bad job of pulling 2 Jet-Skis. The Escape is surprisingly sure footed in winter conditions for its size. The Mach sound system is great. I have been very happy with the car.
The Mach sound system, the AWD for winter driving, and the peppy V6.
The fuel economy could be better and some added padding to dampen road noise would be nice.
