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


I did way more research than average person being a gearhead. I knew the strengths and weekness of the SUV before i bought a used one. I knew because of the way Ford designs their 4 valve engines, it would eat more gas. The secret to good gas mileage is an easy foot. One thing the Escape has is the ability to pull 3,500 lbs towing. This engine gives it that ability when you need it. The problem most people will have is that it can scoot quick if you nail the gas pedal. Thus your mileage will drop fast by pushing hard. I waited to buy the top of the line till it was 2 years old. Much better price! Paid $16,900 for a loaded Limited with sunroof and tow package and 18,000 miles. You'll love it!

Best Features

The gutsy V6, sunroof with rear vent. Subwoofer/tweeter stereo, rack and pinion steering makes it nimble, easy to operate controls, better than average styling!

Worst Features

Needs more creature features like outside temp gauge, compass, power passenger seat, release for rear hatch, and more options to add on. But this is the fun part for me to make it special!
