Love my 2002 Escape
By Cameron Brown on


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


Powerful, sporty, and fun to drive.
Perfect size for our small family plus
groceries and dogs. We absolutely love
the car.
One caution: we originally had a 2001
model which we also loved but had a
problem which would cause the engine to
stall when decelerating at about 40mph
which Ford could not fix at the time
(see NHTSA web site for info). After
four attempts to fix, Ford respected
the California Lemon Law and replaced
our 2001 (with over 25,000 miles on it)
with an identical 2002 model for only
$800. The new one is working perfectly
so far with 4,000 miles on it.

Best Features

Nice engine and automatic transmission.

Worst Features

Gas pedal a little too sensitive when you're just starting. Makes getting out of a parking spot a little chancy until you're used to it.
