Love Love Love It! — Love it, wish it was newer and had a little better gas mileage but overall, it beats the last piece of crap that I owned... (did not list that one, cuz I hated it). i'd buy another one in a heartbeat. The main thing is that I have room for my Great-Grandson's car seat with room for 3 other people besides me! AWESOME!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Roomy, easy to park, fun to drive!

Cons: Can't think of any reason to not buy another one.

2002 Ford Escape — I had a lot of issues with this vehicle, when it was under warranty. But, since i have over 142,000 miles on it now you would expect it to have issues. Since the warranty expired, nothing has gone wrong. The folllowing is a list of what has been replaced and how many times: 1) engine-replaced @ 24,000 miles-blown head gasket. 2) exhaust manifold-3 times due to cracks. 3) wheel bearings front left two times & right front one time. 4) master cylinde-one time. 5) power sunroof-motor burned out three times. 6) numerous sensors. 7) all 4 tires-they were the Firestones that kept blowing out a few years ago and they did a recall on them. 8) power door lock drivers side-burned out motor. & 9) power door lock for the tailgate-burned out motor. So, if your interested in purchasing a 2002 Ford Escape, I wouldn't recommend it unless it is under warranty.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: comfy & better than driving a mini-van or station wagon!!!

Cons: too much down time due to repairs

Good Family 4wd Car — Wanted to get a 4WD for the winter and the wife wanted a Jeep but Ford Escape had better ride quality and Explorer was too big. Good car overall, nothing brilliant, but nothing bad, cheap on gas, good visibility, comfy on long journeys.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Feels like it will go forever.

Cons: Not too big, Explorer would be better

Simple Escape Review — Performance- Its good, has some speed but handling is lousy. Build- Horrible, It breaks all the time, i have spend money on 2 power steering pumps and 3 fuel pumps. Apearrance- Its not an ugly car, but it certainly isn't the prettiest. Cost of Ownership- a high amount, not worth it. Fun- Pshh no.

Pros: Not much.

Cons: Everything

2002 Ford Escape — The Escape is alright, it doesn't lack power,but is an expensive suv to run.Parts are unreal. It's one of the smallest suv's out there, and I don't find it easy on gas.It is spacious if you are a small family,any more than two kids,it's way too small.

Pros: Power wise is good

Cons: Expensive to own

A Great Little Suv That Is More Like A Truck. — good little SUV. Excellent in the snow. Is a truck and handles like one - rather than a sportscar. Well built, no body issues. Had some water leakage on the insude which took some time to figure out and ended up the liner had pulled away from the door frame. Nice looking truck and well thought out on the inside. We really like it.

Pros: dependible, Not bad on gas.  No major issues.

Cons: not very many.

My Excape Of Pleasure — This vehicle is very sharp and popular with the color. It is solid in the handling and never had any hints of it tipping, the upkeep is simple as long as you do regular ooil changes and tires. this car can go up the beech easily and travel for hundreds of miles without any problems.

Pros: color and the sunroof

Cons: gas mileage

Good — I used to love it, it's helped me with several cross country trips, but its an American car with little resell value- and has had several mechanical problems.

Great Car — This Vehicle was GREAT on Gas, even with the 3.0L V6. I was getting on average about 20-21 miles to the gallon (Depending on how I drove)

Pros: The Gas Mileage was Fantastic, and this Car has a ton of GO.

Cons: The front driver and passenger seats were extremely uncomfortable to sit in for an extended period of time.
