2002 Ford Escape XLS Value 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This is a good car for the most part, I think there are some design flaws that make this vehicle a "high maintenance" vehicle once the warranty is up. I had trouble with the wiring and windshield cracks. Overall, it got me where I needed to be with little trouble. It has a smooth ride and fits 5 comfortably.
Smooth ride, comfortable, good gas mileage on trips!
Transmissions have gone out on most of the 2001-2002 models. Ford needs to honor their product and recall them for the consumers sake.
