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!

Best Features

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!
