2003 Ford Escape XLT Popular 2 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


The first week I had to return it
because the radiator had a hole in it
from the factory. Nine months later,
at 12,000 miles, a wheel bearing went
out. A little later, someone ran a
redlight and wrecked the vehicle. It
took 3 weeks to fix because Ford was
VERY slow in getting replacement parts
to the body shop. This vehicle has
cost me a huge loss of time because of
problems Ford could easily solve.
Based on my experience with this
vehicle, I won't buy another Ford.

Best Features

It looks very attractive and runs well.

Worst Features

Better comfort for long trips. Paint that doesn't chip so easily. Use better quality parts from the factory. Improve speed of supplying replacement parts.
