2003 Ford Escape XLS Value Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought my Escape new, but unfortunately I didn't buy the extended warranty. Even thought it was well maintained, at 54,000 miles the transmission failed. I had it towed to a Ford dealer, and then had to get a rental car to get home, since I was out of town. It cost me over $3000 to get the transmission replaced, plus rental car expenses, with no help from Ford customer service. I can't recommend this car for reliability, since I've since heard of others with similar problems.

Best Features

Great looks, great cargo room.

Worst Features

Please get the squeaky steering wheel and the transmission problems fixed.
