Vehicle2002 Ford Escape XLS Value 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewOrdered 2002 Escape XLT 4x4 with every option. Dealer didn't have one in stock, so couldn't see one before ordering. Expected interior to be similar to my F-150 SuperCrew Lariat...bad assumption! It is extremely cheap, uncomforatable, and noisy. (see suggestions below). This is a highly cost-engineered vehicle that is a latent entry designed to compete with the highly-successful Honda CR-V. In looking around, I've discovered the Escape re-sale value is weak, and I would probably go with the Hyundai Santa Fe if I were to buy another mini-SUV.
Best FeaturesV-6 has relatively good power, but is noisy.
Worst Features1.Redesign interior and seats and use quality components. 2.Comfortable lumbar support. 3.Rear disc brakes. 4.Full-size spare. 5.Better A/C. 6.Accessible trailer hitch electrical connector. 7.Side step bars that are functional. 8.Better sound deadening. 9.Floor mats that fit vehicle.
