Excellent for the money
By Mike of Detroit on


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


In 1 year I have had 3 engine problems
(nothing major but still
inconvenient). Performance wise, the
vehicle is excellent. The acceleration
is quick and it handles like a dream!
The cargo room is adequate. The back
seats fold down with little effort,
it's great. However, I do worry about
the vehicle's thin, light-weight doors
in an accident. They don't seem very
safe. You must get the center console,
without it it feels as though you are
going to fall out of the driver's seat.

Best Features

Roominess in the cabin. Exterior trim styling.

Worst Features

Make the center console standard and firm up the doors.
