2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
An SUV that responds like a car. Had
one for 10 mths with 10K miles. Only in
the dealer once for a/c issue and a
clunking sound. No problems eversince.
Escape drives great, excellent 0 to
50mph, decent MPG. It's nimble and
manuverable. Interior is roomy
but "plasticky" but works for me with
the kids. Exterior design is handsome
and clean. Plastic body armor avoids
dings. CRV's and RAV's are just too
small and severely underpowered. My
Escape is sometimes mistaken for an
Explorer and that's fine with me.
Acceleration, sound system, interior
roominess, easy to
full size spare, cargo area
hooks/latches, grab handles.
Softer seats, fix the wind noise,
better location rear cup holders, cargo
area jump/folding seat.
