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

Review

We bought ours brand new from the dealer and from the start it fit the bill. It was sporty, higher than some cars so you felt safer in it, until my mom started driving it. We did not realize it then but the car lurches forward when the accelerator is slowly pressed. For a grand mother with over forty years of driving this is a problem. She feels scared that maybe she will hit someone unexpectedly. We are selling it; it has only 4000 miles in perfect condition.

Favorite Features

The most attractive feature is the look of the exterior. The car looks great.

Suggested Improvements

Handles rough, stiff in the shocks and accelerator is way too responsive from the start. I drive it too and because it is a front wheel drive, it feels like it wants to jump forward but actually runs out of steam soon.
