Not worth payments on vehicle

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


I got this vehicle in 08/06 and fell in love with it i was trading in a Subaru Legacy AWD and wanted to keep the 4 Wheel drive without spending alot of money. I should have kept the subaru. From the time i got it things were happening, the front end was clunking, back end is severely cracked, transmission is gone, sealant around the doors comes off, doors are impossible to open, and only 2 out of the 6 cylinders work. While the interior is nice it is not worth the payments i am making, i am taking my chances on a FWD Toyota which is more reliable. I would not recommend this car unless you know a ford mechanic.

Best Features

When running fine it has alot of get up and go but you have to get it running right, also like the style inside

Worst Features

better engine life, make the seals last longer and not fall off of the doors, make the frame around the vehicle more sturdy.
