Vehicle

2003 Ford Escape XLT Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my first SUV, and I love it! I drove several others in the same class (e.g., Hyundai Santa Fe, Honda CR/V, Toyota Rav4) and none of them came close to the Escape for comfort, appearance, and just plain driving fun! I've never been a recreational driver before, but this little car is changing that!!!


Favorite Features

Exterior design, pure interior comfort, and handling.


Suggested Improvements

I'm looking forward to the hybrid for improved gas economy. Rear auxiliary power source (cig. lighter outlet) would be very nice for those of us who travel with electric coolers.

2003 Ford Escape XLT Popular 2 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I recieved this vehicle as a company lease and I LOVE It. As a pharmaceutical rep and travel a lot and need plenty of space for samples and promos. My vehicle has to be comfortable and spacious. While my Escape is not huge, it is sufficient for my needs and the driver's seat fits me well. My Escape has leather interior and 6 CD stereo and power seat. The visibilty is great due to the elevated chasis and well located windows. All controls are well within reach and the ride is not at all like a truck. My kids think it is SPORTY! and love to ride in it. Overall, the quality of my Escape is superior to all of my previous company vehicles.


Favorite Features

All are my favorite, my escape is the total package......
