I've had 4 EGR Valves replaced along with the 3 Catalectic Converters replace twice due to stopping up. This is very expensive and seems excessive.

Do you drive a 2002 FORD ESCAPE?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
