2002 Ford Escape XLS Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
So far, I have nothing but good things to say about this vehicle. The car always gets stares from people, and keeps me looking back at it when I walk away. It's the first SUV I've bought, and so far, it's everything I've expected. We've just had a bad week of ice/snow, and the SUV has again proved its worth. The poor gas mileage was expected, but the sheer delight of owning this fabulous automobile was definitely a pleasant surprise.
4 wheel drive with torque V6. Terrific handling. Great inclement driving vehicle. For its price, unparalleled looks!
A less abrupt transimission. Sometimes, the a/t tranny shifts somewhat upruptly downifting times where it isn't necessary, and too torquey when I'm only needing to ease out of the hole.
