2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I love driving my Escape. I am short and can see out of it better than anything I've driven before. The electrical problems are driving me crazy. After many visits to the dealer, they finally found that caulk had come loose and I had a gallon of water on my fuse box. Supposedly resealed and replaced the fuse box. Two months later I had it back in for the same problems, radio going off and on by itself, even when car is off, horn going off, trouble lights on for no reason. Said they can't find any problems and gave it back to me unfixed. Have contacted Ford and they won't do anything to help, so am buying a Honda on Monday. I'm sorry to say that Ford has lost another customer.
Good in the winter and fun to drive. Great visibility.
Caulk should not come loose for no reason, and if it does, mechanics and body shop should be able to detect and fix, or Ford should stand behind it.
