2003 Ford Escape XLS Value Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I have had no problems with the car except that it is not that great in the snow with the original tires. I recently put on all terrain tires and now it is great in the snow. I have put about 50,000 miles on it in two years and I have not had a single problem!
Great MPG for an SUV.
If you live in the north make sure to put all terrain tires on it .... and put around 100 pounds of salt or sand in the trunk for better traction.
