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


I purchased my Escape and haven't looked back. It has enough power for me (got the V6)and my husband. He also loves it. It only had 47,000 miles on it and talked the dealership down to a great deal (after 2 days!). We live in northern California and already drove it down to southern California and it drove like a dream (I would've liked a little better gas mileage though). It's perfect for someone going from a car to an SUV. It's not too big and yet has PLENTY of room. You also have a good seeing height. Recommend it. Love it!

Best Features

The zippy V6. It's really comfortable and roomy for long distances and, for the women, cute too (inside and out)!

Worst Features

The shifter does get in the way of the stereo knobs (they fixed it in '05 model) and there is a consistent noise in the the rear door hatch; can't pinpoint exactly what it is to stop it yet.
