Enjoyed every mile of it

2001 Ford Escape XLS 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
From the moment I saw it I fell in love with the looks (both exterior and interior). When I bought it and had the chance to drive it, I loved it even more. It has been reliable (great engine power when street lights turn green, and when having to advance slow moving vehicles, which I attribute to the combination of its light body and 6v engine) and it has been fun, making me look and feel younger. Great for outdoor activities (going up the mountains or the beach). Huge trunk capacity.
Great starting power at traffic lights and advancing slow moving vehicles. Its almost 360 degrees turn around capability in small spaces. Also its middle size compared to other SUV's.
Next time I would buy the 4 wheel drive, since the front wheel drive makes it skid a little in some circumstances such as starting up a wet hill. They all should be 4 wheel drive.
