2002 Ford Escape XLS Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Ok, it's a great little SUV. Quick and peppy. But I am putting my $1500 extended warranty to use! In the last year I have replaced the master cylinder, the torque converter, the oil oan and gasket, a burned up exhaust valve, front brakes and rotors (twice!) and have it in now to replace the timing belt cover. It is dripping oil on the exhaust manifold and I am afraid I will be roadside BBQ soon. My warranty company has shelled about $5000 on the fixes so far!
Body style is nice and the engine is peppy.
Buy it back from me so I can get something else that has the same nice body style and peppiness but does not need $5,000 in repairs before it is 2 years old!
