2002 Ford Escape XLS Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
My wife and I purchased a 2002 XLT
Escape with leather seats in July of
02. We liked the body style of the
vehicle and read all of the consumer
reports on the vehicle; SUV of the
This vehicle has to be the worst
riding vehicle I have ever been in.
The seats are very uncomfortable on
long distance trips. Road noise is
awful. Interior trim is cheaply
designed. Fit and finish leaves a lot
to be desired.
Finally traded it this past weekend;
OH HAPPY DAY!!!!
At it's price, I honestly can not
recommend this vehicle to anyone.
Redesign seats to be more
comfortable. Dress up interior with
woodgrain trim. Retool door panels
for better fit and finish.
