2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

The transmission died at 54k , replacement cost: 3k, The alternator died at 72k replacement cost: $600. The fifth door does not open on hot days. Either I bought a lemon or it's just a typical American built car, and that's all it is, mainly because it has the same transmission as the ford contour (why would ford use a car transmission in a 200hp SUV?). It looks great though, Just engineered stupidly. I trust my 1995 Toyota pick-up more than this piece of junk. Now, on the bright side, it truly is a nice ride and the interior, sound system and all the rest is great. [just beware it will break down on you].

Favorite Features

Looks, 200 HP, Great Sound System, Fun to Drive.

Suggested Improvements

Transmission, Alternator replacement requires front axle to be removed (very expensive labor cost).
