2002 Ford Escape XLS Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I first saw the Escape when it first arrived on the scene. I told my husband then that I wanted that car when I was ready to get another car. In 2002 I bought my first Escape. I have never had a sorry day. I love this car. It has 105000 miles on it now and it's never been in the shop for more than the usual oil changes. I am older and therefore have a problem climbing out of most cars. With my Escape I can climb up and hop down. That is the main reason I wanted a small SUV. I also have a horse so this great car can carry all my horse equipment with no problem. I think American cars get a bum rap. I get 21 miles to the gallon highway (I drive 30 miles to work each way). luv it
Great visibility all around. Decent gas milage for an SUV. 6 cyclinder engine has great horsepower--what I wanted for merging on interstate
I liked the 02 model. Don't like the new look--too much like a Jeep. Would like to see better gas milage, of course.
