It's falling apart on me

2001 Ford Escape XLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I love the way this car looks and the way it drives. The problem I have it that it's falling apart, literally. I've replaced 2 stereos, 4 sensors, 1 sunroof motor and still need work done. The leather is peeling off 3 of 4 doors, my sunroof now has a leak, the motor is dying on the sunroof again, the front passenger door doesn't open from the outside and the tailgate only opens when it feels like it. Very frustrating when I've got a load of groceries and the tailgate won't open.

Best Features

Comfy and plenty of room

Worst Features

There is no ventilation in the back seat. The a/c could use a little more oomph and a couple of vents in the back would be good. My daughter complains regularly about it being hot back there.
