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

Review

The first week I had to return it because the radiator had a hole in it from the factory. Nine months later, at 12,000 miles, a wheel bearing went out. A little later, someone ran a redlight and wrecked the vehicle. It took 3 weeks to fix because Ford was VERY slow in getting replacement parts to the body shop. This vehicle has cost me a huge loss of time because of problems Ford could easily solve. Based on my experience with this vehicle, I won't buy another Ford.

Favorite Features

It looks very attractive and runs well.

Suggested Improvements

Better comfort for long trips. Paint that doesn't chip so easily. Use better quality parts from the factory. Improve speed of supplying replacement parts.
