I just bought a 2003 Escape XLT 4-door. 155k miles but in beautiful shape. I have two concerns: The front airbag warning light stays on, and the cruise control doesn't seem to work. The cc indicator light on the dash comes on in about 2-3 seconds, but the 'access-set' does not activate the cc. I'm hoping the airbag issue is a vacuum leak or something else simple. I'll drive it for a couple of weeks and give my neighborhood mechanic a list. Meanwhile, I love that this is relatively small and nimble for an SUV, with great ergonomics and comfortable driving position.
