Worth the wait

2009 Ford Escape Limited 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
No hot rod, but plenty of pickup for a 4 cylinder. The ride is slightly firm but very comfortable. Handles much better than the '08 and the interior is very quiet. The 6 speed transmission is very smooth. Getting great mileage already. The Sync and nav system are fun and the stereo is killer. Very roomy. Sits high and has great visibility all the way around. I've looked over every inch I can think of and the fit and finish seem flawless. I have read some criticism about the front disk, rear drum brakes and you would think it has disks all around with the very effective braking I have experienced. It's not a sports car but it is great for a small SUV.
Ride, handling, and comfort. Stereo, nav, and Sync. Certainly the fuel economy.
8 way power driver seat with lumbar support and seat memory. Power passenger seat. Homelink rearview mirror. Tie-downs in cargo area.
