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


We love our Escape. Great V6 power. Plenty of room inside. A joy to drive. With 2235 miles ours failed to start. After 20 minutes it starts right up. Technician was on road test and it stalled on him-started right back up. Brought it back to dealer to check computer - no codes and wouldnt restart. Fords Technical Department told them to install new fuel pump. No problems since. It runs stronger than ever now. We still love our Escape but we now wonder!

Best Features

great brakes,stong V6 and throaty engine growl

Worst Features

gas mileage, annoying transmission lever and ignition key placement.
