I own a 2002 Ford Escape V6 XLT Sport. Bought it new in November, 2002. Present odometer is 151,850 miles. The vehicle has spent five Winters in Michigan, and two in Florida. Very little trailer towing (snowmobiles) and no off-roading activity.
Ownership has been mostly routine, with Lincoln/Mercury/Ford dealers performing most maintenance. The only service I did was to convert to an Amsoil program in 07-09. Back on Motocraft full synthetic, now that isn't driven 30K miles per year.
The Duretec V6 runs very well, and uses no oil.
My only mechanical (non-warranty) failure has been the power takeoff, which was replaced last week. The dealer gave me a discount on the unit, but the bill was still $1,860.
It will remain our primary driver through 2011, and then my daily "beater" until eternity.
The only surface deterioration has been underneath the optional step/running board brackets. I cleaned those up and repainted them last Summer.
I've been with Ford since early 1992, and have experienced one unpleasant service call. The rest of the dealers have been very helpful and courteous. Of course, it didn't hurt to live in Michigan, which has more Ford dealers than any other state! This is our fourth Ford/Mazda vehicle; the others being a 07 Lincoln MKZ (lease), and two 1997 Mercury Tracers. I drove the Mercs to 150K miles before I sold them.

We bought a new Escape in 2003. I have never had a problem with
it. The only time it has been in the shop has been for oil changes
and tire replacements (normal things.) It has 80,000 miles on it and
I still love to drive it. We just purchased a 2010 Escape Limited and
so far I love it as much as I do the other one. We have always had
very good luck with Ford products and have not had any major
problems with any of them. We live in snow country also, and even
the local police officer says that I have the best vehicle in the
parking lot. We love our Escapes!

'05's are AWD. Are there any pauses during the 8 flashes?
We have an '04 that lit up the air bag light 3 flashes - pause - 7 flashes.
Did a search to find out what it meant. Came back as right front seat wiring harness.
You might get some info trying that.
You can try searching ford parts dot com to see if you can find out what part it is and list price.

It's the box in the left upper part of the exploded view. It's probably connected by a wiring harness.
