2002 ford escape is awesome!

2002 Ford Escape XLS Sport

My 2002 ford escape is very reliable. It currently has two hundred and thirty miles on it. I have only had to do minor maintenance. Oil changes, change spark plugs, change coils, new fuel filter. It is easy to drive and I feel very safe driving my three month old son around in the car. It is very comfortable and I really enjoy taking road trips in it.

The tank aka Ford Escape. Great car for crappy drivers who love to hard break

2002 Ford Escape XLS Sport

I'm the type of person that gets used to driving one car and can't drive any others therefore I love my car. It feels like I'm really protected while I'm driving it. The windshield is big so I can see everything which is great because I'm blind. Great acceleration and breaks. AC surprisingly works amazing.

Great little SUV for coaches on the run.

2002 Ford Escape XLS Sport

My is small SUV is great. I am a coach so I can carry all my training stuff with me wherever I go. It does not eat up a lot of gas. Perfect size so it fits in small spaces. Plenty of legroom. Good radio for the long drives home. I love my car. Right now I would buy the same car again.

Great vehicle and mileage.

2002 Ford Escape XLS Sport

Have had the truck for 15 yrs, have only had to replace the clutch, and maintain maintenance on the vehicle. Overall very good vehicle and saves on gas. Comfortable for everyone, good leg room, and enough space to put luggage and people. Vehicle is very good quality.
