Overall, Great Car. Everytime I Get In It I Think To Myself, I Love This Car... — I love this car. I have never been too keen on Fords, then I got this ride. I have not had a single problem and was very happy that it came fully loaded. I have only had it since March 2010 but it has still served me well thus far!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Works both for city and mountain driving.

Cons: ..can't think of any..

Served Me Well — Have had it 7 years, and no major problems. Came fully loaded back then. It has enough pep. Not to big, not too small. Only downside is my interior door panels are comming off, could be from the Texas heat? Only repair I've had was my shift cable broke, few hundred to fix, but hey it's 7 years old... It is starting to ride a little rough, and the cabin is not the quietest. I did do some long trips, and used it everyday for home health, so I probably was a bit rough on it. Now has 115+ miles and I'm ready to upgrade. Have test drove the 2010 and they are much improved. Even if they don't exactly wow me.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: reliable, affordable

Cons: no luxury factor

2002 Ford Escape Xlt 4wd — Bought this after i graduated highschool. great little suv. had an okay 4wd system. used to offroad it only ever really got stuck in mudd once. great in the snow! put a 2 inch lift in it and couldnt tell the diff between stock hight and lifted. deep puddles cause problums as it had tendancy to suck water into the intake. misfired on cyl 2 and 5 for bout a week till it cleared outa system. alternaters would get covered in mudd and overheat easy when goin through ALOT of mudd.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: good performance decent handaling and okay stock speed and acceleration.  decent for light trail offroading.

Cons: alternators would overheat and blow easily if coated in mudd and easily got water sucked into intake after hitting deep enough puddles

I Liked How It Looked, It Ran Okay, But It Was Not Worth The Money That I Had Been Paying. — My escape turned out to be a lemon. It ran okay and got okay gas mileage, but overall it was an expensive investment. I was paying high APR on the car, and although I loved to drive it and it was an SUV, this particular Escape was not a good choice.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is cute!

Cons: I had many difference problems with the car....
