2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
This was my first truely "American"
purchase (my previous car was a '00
Honda CRV), and other than a warranty-
covered fuel sensor issue which caused
the truck to stall at 40 mph, it has
been a reliable, well-crafted, compact
SUV. It has more than enough power
and it's fairly comfortable for my
6'4" frame. The 16-17 city-MPG took a
little getting used to, but the '05
Hybrid is right around the corner!
Power, appearance, stereo (standard, 6
In-Dash), ergonomics, manual 4x4 (in
addition to auto AWD), rear lift-
Bun-warmers please!(brrrrr!), MP-3
player capabilities, steering wheel
audio controls, climate control with
air re-circulate button, auto-close
sunroof and driver window.
