2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I've only been driving this vehicle
for 30 days, so keep that in mind
while reading. Overall, I am very
happy with this SUV. Great
acceleration with the V6. I test drove
a Honda CRV and I thought the engine
was going to burst while I was trying
to merge onto a highway. No thanks.
The Escape looks good, handles better
than most cars I've driven, and has
plenty of interior room for being
a "mini" SUV. There are only a few
minor things I think should be
improved, but if I could only pick 1
it would be the seats. They need to be
a bit more contoured and supportive.
Powerful V6, cool looks, roomy.
Wish list: better seats, illuminated
ignition, better speakers, and please
get rid of that god-awful ticking
noise from the engine.
