Best vehicle I've ever had!
OK - so I AM still driving my 2002 Ford Escape. There's a reason why: It's quite simply the best vehicle I've ever had. Sure, I've looked at new vehicles because, after all the Escape is now 16 years old with over 200K miles on it, but I have yet to find a new SUV I like better than this Escape! I researched this vehicle extensively before purchasing it new in 2002 & have religiously maintained it. The only service I've had to do to this SUV are the few things you'd expect to fix (like replace brakes or a new battery) in a car of this age & mileage. I love this SUV & am thinking I'll shoot for another 200K miles or 16 years, whichever comes first. Thank you FORD - you built a winner in 2002.
