2003 Ford Escape XLS Value Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
My 2003 Ford Excape LXT has been a great, reliable vehicle. It doesn't handle as well as my Jeep Cherokee in the Minnesota Winters but it isn't as heavy either.
No complaints. I change the oil evert 3000 and rotate the tires every 6000 like clockwork.
At 95,000 miles....other than routine maintenance like brakes, replaced tie rod ends once, I haven't done anything major to it. Looks like new!
seats aren't too comfortable for long trip. hard and stiff.
