2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
This is the best of both worlds!!! I drive mostly in the city, congestion, tight parking, etc... The Escape drives, and handles well, performs well too! Gas milage only about 18 (CITY) I did get 24 (HIGHWAY) ONE time! This vehicle has never been back for service, other than oil change, It is even better than the 2001, that I had, that was wrecked with 16K on it! My only complaints are small... I would like to see a lighted ignition switch, (It's hard to find at night) and I would like a little better ride, like the NEW Explorer! Definately the MOST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK SUV (in my opinion)
201 hp = Great Performance
Very comfortable Driver Seat
Perfect Size (for me)
Spare tire is INSIDE the vehicle!
Column shift allows for MORE storage, and leg space doesn't feel cramped
Seat fabric seems sturdy (not cheap cloth like others) (XLT)
I could go on & on!!!
Lighted Ignition switch
Less Wind noise
