2003 Ford Escape XLT Popular 2 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
This was a bank repo that appeared to be well taken care of. My wife drives this and likes the way it handles in snow and bad weather. We have never had this vehicle off road or done any towing and now at 123,000 miles the transmission is slipping when it's cold. Our mechanic say's it's about to go out and replacement with rebuilt tranny is about $3,500. I replaced my Winstar tranny too at about 60,000 miles. See a trend here with Ford transmissions. I do and will think long and hard before buying another.
Wife likes the ride and the car overall.
11" rear wiper blades are carried by nobody! Fuel mileage.
