2003 Ford Escape XLT Premium 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
The Ford Escape has lived up to my
expectations and has been a great
vehicle. The engine is powerful enough
to climb the grapevine at 70 MPH,
leaving the large behemouth SUV class
behind. The AWD transmission is solid.
The back is large enough to seat 3
adults, and the seats fold down giving
us enough room for all we need to
carry. The engine and transmission are
solid as can be. The 16 inch wheels
are large enough to go over everything
one could want and provides a stable
The driver's seat could be a little
lower in it's full down position.

This is a fun and economic vehicle. I
am in love with my '02 Escape because
of it's responsiveness, safety, and
beauty. BUT ..... I think I got a
jinxed model - I am having problems
with the brake light and an apparent
leak in the brake fluid liquid
container. I have been to the dealer 4
times and I am ready to get rid of the
car. Maybe I got a faulty model because
I have researched this model and
haven't stumbled upon chronic brake
issue with my car.
Neat design - the car is not too large
or too small. I feel safe in it !
The plastic features inside should be
made of sturdier platic.
There is not feature for recycling
ventilation from within.

no problems yet, but that probably
comes car to car, feels good, but the
gas milage is not as it tells you. We
got the v6 and mpg is nowhere near
23/28. Nothing super great about the
car, the power is nice though, it can
pull its own.
um, just regular stuff, nothing out of
colder a/c, ive felt worse but i've
felt better. better gas, i know i
know, its a suv and you get what you
pay for but man, gas is expensive these
days. oh well, its worth it i guess.
