Pretty Good Car until 130K!
By dragonfly58 on
2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 2 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Purchased my Escape used w/80K miles on it.
Three years later w/150K I'm now having BIG problems.
Before it hit 130K the car was great! No problems, fun to drive, but now having big problems with E-Vap codes, check engine light always on, fuel hoses replaced, plugs/wires/coils burnt out, back seat release broke, falling apart all at once, cruise control won't work, CD player died, interior falling apart.
Mileage horrible, no where near projected, getting 17-19mpg at best.
Drivers seat wearing out, no cush left, but lumbar adjust ok.
Have always had problems w/cargo door staying locked for days on end, the pits when groceries loaded & you gotta unload over back of seat.
Fun to drive, plenty of room, I feel secure in vehicle, good crash test record.
Put a key-lock in cargo door!!
Escapes have bad track record for cargo door actuator lock burning out, always seems like it stays locked after stuff is loaded into back.
