2003 Ford Escape XLT Popular 2 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I've only had my 2003 Escape for about three weeks now but I do love it! This is my first SUV and it took a little getting used to but now that I am, I'll never go back to driving a car. The Escape handles great, has great acceleration and looks really sporty. The interior is roomy except I think that the seats are too short. This is the only thing that keeps the comfort level from being perfect. The stereo has great sound and I love having the six disc cd changer in the dash. I miss the outside temp,compass displays and lighted vanity mirrors from my car. Waiting for snow to check out the 4 wheel drive as this will be my first experience with it. Overall, it's a great vehicle.
Good sized compact SUV, handles great, great acceleration.
Make the front seats longer, add outside temp and compass displays and lighted vanity mirrors.
