2002 Ford Escape XLS Value 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Purchased this vehicle used (end of lease). Excellent condition. Ran into problems with manual transmission, idler bearing self-destructed. 3 weeks to replace, but local dealership was extremely accomodating. This sort of failure should simply not happen with a manual transmission.

Best Features

Excellent fuel economy for a small SUV. Good shift manual, even for a front-wheel drive. Good ride for a light truck.

Worst Features

I hope that the transmission does not "go south" again, although this is an ongoing complaint, from what I have read.
