2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


After driving several small SUV's and
trying to find the best overall value,
we decided on the Ford Escape. Our
last Ford SUV, which was a Bronco II,
was 14 years old, and still running
great. However, we needed 4 doors
instead of 2 for our family and the
Escape filled the bill. We checked out
all of the usual sources, and everyone
gave it glowing reviews, except for
Consumer Reports which favors Japaneese
automakers in general. The Escape has
as much interior room as the Ford
Explorer Sport 2 door and has more
space than the Toyota Rav4 and others.
We hope to keep our Escape at least 10
years, maybe more.

Best Features

We selected the XLT model, which has nice appointments such as the rear cargo shade, cargo nets, etc. The 6 changer CD is great and my favorite thing about the Escape is the ride. Very smooth, convertable, and the V6 engine is awesome.

Worst Features

I can't think of anything to improve this cute-ute. Ford did its homework in the design of this vehicle.
