Can't go wrong with this one!

2008 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I have been in the automobile industry for over 30 years and after living in three continents and after owning Hillmans, Opels, Fiats, CitroŽns, Toyotas, Hondas, Hyundais, Mopars (Chryslers), GMs, and Fords, I can say that this SUV is the most satisfying vehicle I have owned so far. It meets all my current needs almost perfectly. It is the right size for me, fit and finish are great, it is quiet, performance, for a 4 cyl SUV, is brilliant, it has all the right features and it averages 24 MPG in the city and 29 MPG in the highway. If you are on the market for a small SUV, go ahead and test drive them all, you cannot go wrong with this one!
Visibility, console, MP3 jack, great sound system, driving position, great all around!
It would be nice to have hand grips, return the emergency brake to the console (dislike the foot brake and release handle positions).
