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


Our '02 Escape has been pretty good to us. We have had to bring it in for service multiple times on some recurring problems/nuisances that didn't affect the way the car handles (loose air bag light wires, driver visor mirror, jammed CD changer). Overall this SUV is perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults, two young boys). In hindsight, should have bought leather seats since the cloth gets too dirty with the kids. Plenty of cargo room for large stroller, luggage, etc. V6 engine is a must. V4 (tested, not purchased) was way weak.

Best Features

Running boards to help kids climb into back; rear cargo room;

Worst Features

Gear shift fits better down low (as designed in '04/'05 models);
