I waited till just the right time to buy my Escape, best deal I ever made. I am a college sports official and I use it to get around town and to drive to and from events. Space, comfort, ride and looks are just a few of the things that make this vehicle outstanding. I can take just about anything in the cargo and extended area with the back seats down. Plus, I can tow my motorcycle, boat of loaded trailer with no issue at all. I comment FORD for making such a GREAT little SUV.
Fun to drive, 4 wheel on the go or just let the vehicle do it for you. Modern style still looks HOT in 2010!
I am sure the few small things that come to mind have already been addressed.
