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


This is the best vehicle I have ever owned. Excellent sound system, huge sunroof, very versatile. Great on gas for an SUV with 4x4 and V6 engine. On a long trip with the A/C on I averaged 24-25MPG! With the A/C I got 28MPG! The engine is very powerful making passing or merging effortless. Handles great in the snow. Never have I felt out of control, all handling is predictable. Very fun to drive! You will not regret purchasing an Escape!

Worst Features

More powerful heating and cooling for climate control system. Adjustable headrests, I am 6' 2" and the seat only comes up to my neck. This issue was resolved in newer models.
