My younger Sister has a 2001 Escape. She has not had any problems beyond a bad cruise control cable and a bad coolant level sensor (replaced under warranty).

The Escape gets really good reviews. Same as the Mazda product. I have yet to meet anyone who wasn't happy with it, though, IMPO, there isn't even close to enough cargo room as is with 99% of SUVs out there.

Slight correction: The Mazda SUV is the same as the Ford Escape.
I find all modest SUVs have small luggage capacity, below the top of the rear seat. My friend who needed a replacement for his Taurus SW noticed this too and solved it by buying the huge trunk Ford 500.

You're correct, the Ford Escape is the same as the Mazda Tribute, different badges, different trim.
It is a smaller SUV and, as such, doesn't have near the luggage capacity of an Explorer, Durango, Tahoe, or any of the family 18-wheelers like the Expedition. But I am able to put in 2 large suitcases, 1 medium, 2 "overnight" bags, my notebook, my tabletop tool kit, and a utility case with other tools, tape, light, etc. that I might need for an emergency (should one arise) when my girlfriend and I vacation. All of this fits below the top of the back seat with the back seat up. On the floor in the back seat, I usually put a small 12-pack-size cooler with ice and water, and a bag with snacks and stuff for easy accessibility while driving. I got my Escape for the main reason that it is a smaller SUV, and it holds plenty for what I need it for. I moved up to it from a Ford Probe and a Mitsu Eclipse, so the room difference for me was a lot. There are times I wish I had a larger cargo area, such as when I need some lumber, but even if I had an F-350, I'd be willing to bet that I'd need something larger at one time or another. All in all, the Escape suits my needs, and I am extremely pleased with the size, handling, and mileage.

History seems to support that the Tribute was designed by Mazda from the 626 chassis. The magazines all said so at introduction time. Some Ford say that they are all wrong.
Just aws the current 2.3 liter engine is directly from Mazda. The fact that Ford has built an engine of similar displacement in the past doesn't mean much.

I have a 2002 XLT 2WD V6, and have had very few problems. I only have 42,000 on it (bought new), so I'm not a high mileage driver. I had a broken radiator hose clamp from the factory (replaced under warranty), and I replaced the DPFE sensor ($27) recently because of rough idling. Other than that, no problems. If I ever trade it in, I will definitely look at another one.
