2003 Ford Escape XLS Value Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This has been a good mini SUV with few
problems. I had my radio/CD player
replaced and my tires are not wearing
as well as my previous "Ford Explorer".
I get 20.2 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.
The tan interior cloth shows
spots "very easily" compared to gray or
a pattern design cloth.
I think Ford should have included
privacy glass to protect children and
making a cheap roof rack a $75.00
option and floor mats an option still
bothers me. The XLT comes with these
things but you will not get the value
back on re-sell.
