2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I bought mine used with 71,000 miles on it. It being a small SUV I didn't really think it would do very well off road even though it had the 4wd. I was extremely suprised on just how well this thing can off-road! I have put it in some pretty hairy places and it just pulled on through without even second guessing it. It handles quite well on the road. I drive 75 miles a day for work in this thing, and I love every minute of it.
Have a low gear in the 4wd system. 4 HI isn't the best when going through certain areas.
