Pretty Good Car until 130K!

2002 Ford Escape XLS Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

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.

Best Features

Fun to drive, plenty of room, I feel secure in vehicle, good crash test record.

Worst Features

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.
