2003 Ford Escape XLT Popular Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I loved my Ford Escape until the transmission went out at 56,000 miles. I have heard from others that this is common for Ford vehicles. I thought it had a powertrain warranty and did not purchase the extended warranty. If you decide to buy this SUV, pay the extra money for the extended warranty.
Great interior space, comfortable ride for all passengers.
