2003 Ford Escape XLT Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is a the best vehicle out there
for the price. The exterior is
spectactular. I love the sporty look.
The interior has lots of room, and it's
very practicle for maneuvering in and
out of tight parking spaces. I went
from driving small compact cars all my
life to driving this, and I have had no
problems.


Best Features

The comfortable seats. Also, I love the all wheel drive feature.

the best I have ever dealt with.

2003 Ford Escape XLT Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my first SUV, and I love it! I
drove several others in the same class
(e.g., Hyundai Santa Fe, Honda CR/V,
Toyota Rav4) and none of them came
close to the Escape for comfort,
appearance, and just plain driving fun!
I've never been a recreational driver
before, but this little car is changing
that!!!


Best Features

Exterior design, pure interior comfort, and handling.


Worst Features

I'm looking forward to the hybrid for improved gas economy. Rear auxiliary power source (cig. lighter outlet) would be very nice for those of us who travel with electric coolers.

2003 Ford Escape XLT Premium Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Okay. Easier to drive around town than
2 previous Explorers. Seats a little
hard on long trips. Husband misses his
larger Explorer leg room and seat
comfort.

Transmission very 'jerky' at times.

A little concerned after seeing crash
test results. Next SUV a Volvo??
