Early model Ford Escape still stands up over new build
2001 Ford Escape XLS
This is the original Ford Escape. I love the slightly smaller, boxier build as compared to the newer models.
This car has had minimal problems over the years and is going strong with 135,000 miles on it. It's a great car for outdoor adventuring -- it has high enough clearance to handle rough back roads but is comfortable to ride in on dirt terrain.
This vehicle seats four adults comfortably; a fifth could fit if passengers are willing to get a little cozy. The seats easily lie flat for transporting items (adult bicycles, for example) and conveniently, you have the option to lie a single seat or two combined seats. This is ideal for transporting a person and a pet, for example.
Ford Escape: great choice for college student.
2001 Ford Escape
I have owned my Ford Escape for the past 6 years. I bought it while I was in college and have used it through graduate school and since I have entered the professional world. The Escape is a great vehicle for someone who moves frequently. It offers a good amount of space to pack belongings into, while also offering a vehicle that is not as hard on gas as larger SUV’s. My Escape has approximately 125, 000 miles on it and still runs great. I make sure to stay up on normal maintenance and have only had to change the battery once in the 6 years I have owned it.
2001 Ford Escape with transmission issues.
2001 Ford Escape
Ford Escape is a mid sized SUV with great room for storage and passengers, comes with a leather interior and sunroof that allows for plenty of sunlight. The vehicle is four wheel drive with decent gas mileage and smooth driving. However, this make and model commonly has issues with the transmission going out. I have had to replace two transmissions in this type of vehicle and it becomes a hassle of replacing this part. However, I have chosen to stick with this brand because they are reliable in getting me where I need to go.
