Best Small SUV Value Period
By Tater on
Vehicle2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewAfter driving several small SUV's and trying to find the best overall value, we decided on the Ford Escape. Our last Ford SUV, which was a Bronco II, was 14 years old, and still running great. However, we needed 4 doors instead of 2 for our family and the Escape filled the bill. We checked out all of the usual sources, and everyone gave it glowing reviews, except for Consumer Reports which favors Japaneese automakers in general. The Escape has as much interior room as the Ford Explorer Sport 2 door and has more space than the Toyota Rav4 and others. We hope to keep our Escape at least 10 years, maybe more.
Best FeaturesWe selected the XLT model, which has nice appointments such as the rear cargo shade, cargo nets, etc. The 6 changer CD is great and my favorite thing about the Escape is the ride. Very smooth, convertable, and the V6 engine is awesome.
Worst FeaturesI can't think of anything to improve this cute-ute. Ford did its homework in the design of this vehicle.
