Transmission Problems Buyer Beware
By Sis on
2002 Ford Escape XLS Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Fun to drive when running. Not fun to pay for a new transmission. Was told that the Escape has a poor transmission and it reflected that when it died after the warranty had expired. Found out that others are having the same problem with their Ford Escapes via internet research. Buyer beware - transmission very poor.
4 wheel drive and 6 CD changer.
Have made improvement to shifter and others items since 2002 model came out.
