Escape from Ford, literally
By escapeohio on


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


The Ford Escape could be a very
good vehicle IF Ford had worried
about some quality control.
Problems:the drivers' side mirror
vibrates so badly that it has been
fixed 4 times, to no avail, the CD
changer ate six of my discs, a
constant droan from the
transmission, the dashboad controls
have cracked, numerous rattles and
squeeks, the left door window came
off track,engine stalled. Also of note
is that Fords customer service
through dealers is horrible.
Everytime I have taken the Escape in
for a repair the mechanics have
broken something else. I don't
receive this poor of service from my
other cars manufacturers, BMW and
Nissan, respectively.

Best Features

•Standard CD changer •All Wheel Drive (4x4)

Worst Features

•Better quality control or atleast some quality control. •Use better plastics and materials. •Fix the mirror issue, it is a safety concern. •More powerful heater.
