Replaced wife's 2005 Rav-4 with a new Escape.
First Ford I bought since my Mach 1 Mustang back in 1970 (wish I still had that one).
Love the car!
Test drove several SUV's and it was love at first drive with the Escape.
Had it all.
Comfort, performance, and style all great.
Especially like the interior design. It is so smoooooth and quiet to drive that I leave my car and take hers when I can.
Got basic SE model and added leather seats in the aftermarket for $950, for a total of $24,600, plus TTL.
I agree with one magazine review I read that said the new Escape puts the "Sport" back in SUV!
Am getting 28 mpg in combined, mostly rural driving.
Got 32 on a trip down I-90.
Electronic assist steering.
Like the no gas cap, just a fuel port.
