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

Review

I just completed 6 months and 7500 miles with my Escape, and I still think its the best of the small SUVs. The ride is firm but not "truck-like" and the acceleration and handling are superb. I have found no defects and needed no repairs. I had an Explorer a few years back that turned out to be pretty crappy, so I was a bit concerned with buying another Ford. So far, I have been very pleased with the decision.

Favorite Features

acceleration and handling, cd-changer, fun to drive

Suggested Improvements

Interior trim could be better, especially on the "upscale" versions. Lighted switches would help, as would relocating the ignition. (I still have to look to find it, it just doesn't feel like it's where it should be.)
