2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 2 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
First of all I bought this Ford new. I have 50,000 miles on it. The repairs I've made, other than routine maintenance, are. Fuel pump and a tie rod end and that's it ( knock on wood). Power from this 200hp V-6 is more than ample and it's good to know you have that extra power when needed. The ride is a bit stiff but that is to be expected from an SUV. The seats are very comfortable so that makes the stiff ride more bearable. Very roomy. Highway road noise is above average. If your looking to improve on that a good set of passenger tire would help. A/T tires are not the way to go unless your looking for more traction. Fuel-ok at 20 mpg combined city/hwy for a V-6. Nice SUV.
3.0 V-6 Power,comfortable seating, ample room for cargo when the back seats are down,great snow traction even with a 4X2,looks good,
Softer ride, courtesy lights should be within drivers reach not over head,a bit noisy on the hwy.
