2001 Ford Escape XLS 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Owned this escape since 2001 when it had 0 miles. It now has 235,000 and is still going. Never had any problems, original engine, transmission, clutch, and everything. New front struts/tie rods and brakes at 190k. Replaced the in-dash stereo, but left the speakers, they sound as good as the Bose speakers in our 2007 yukon denali. Vehicle drives great in all conditions, and still looks like new when it's clean. The Escape has never let me down, and i hope to rely on it for years to come.

Best Features

4x4, manual transmission, off and on road comfort/handling, gas mileage, overall build quality, comfortable seats, storage space, towing capability

Worst Features

it's a bit plasticky on the inside, needs about an inch more of ground clearance
