2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I've put 3000 miles on the XLT Premium I bought a month ago, and am very satisified with it. The V6 has plenty of power & a solid feel. Only downside is that I'm averaging just over 20 mpg at 70 mph highway speeds. The ABS brakes are very smooth. It took a few tries to get the driver's seat adjusted right, but now it's comfortable even on long drives. Plenty of cargo space with the seat folded, and flipping the seats is easy. Only problem so far was with the 6-disc CD changer. I loaded a disc but it wouldn't play or eject. A stereo tech replaced it in 5 minutes and the new one works great.

Best Features

Great acceleration and comfortable ride. Plenty of interior room. Excellent stereo system. Sunroof also works well.

Worst Features

A little better fuel economy would be nice.
