2002 Ford Escape XLS Choice 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
After shopping for 3 months and reviewing all of
the SUV's in this class, I decided that
relaibility, power, and affordability was the route
to go. The Escape is not as fancy as the Tribute(
same exact Mazda engine) or the CR-V, or the
Santa Fe but for the money it's the best in it's
I think Ford's only shortcoming with the Escape
was they should have spent a little more money
with the build quality and intierior- I personally
would have paid for it.
Overall I would suggest this SUV to anyone in
the market- the 6cyl. 3.0 201hp- 4 dr.
