2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I have had this car for almost a year
and a half. I have had it in the shop
for probably 20-30 days for all sorts
of problems. It cut off on me while I
was driving down the road .. a problem
that has been experienced by at least
two others I know with their own
Escapes. My 6-CD changer had to be
replaced. The runners/steps had to be
replaced b/c the vibrate so loud it
disrupts the ride .. altho the new ones
still vibrate .. obviously a defect in
construction. Not sure why, but I had
to have my brake oil reservoir repaired
due to leakage. Those are the things I
can think of off the top of my head!
Overall tho, I do like the look of the
car .. and the ride is comfy. The car
has nice pickup. I'm not sure I'd buy
it again and will definitely be getting
rid of it before the warranty runs out!
