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


I purchased the vehicle used in 2001 with 7600 miles on it. I've owned it and used it every day since with not one regret. I now have 123000 miles on it and other than routine maintenance-oil change, tires, battery, etc I have had no problems. I just recently started noticing the missing on the sunroof switch and although the altenator tested ok, my light is on but doesn't seem to be draining the battery at all. I wish the interior of the new Escapes were as will designed in the center console area but will definately buy another. My only complaints are road noise and for being smaller, my gas mileage is no better than the Explorer (18- 19mpg). Handles great in MN winters.

Best Features

6 CD player, handles like a car, comfortable & great room in the rear seats for passengers. Great interior room for large items.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage could be possible even without going hybrid. Better insulation for road noise.
