I gaze out of the window at it all the time, it is such a cute car. It has a lot of get up and go and the A/C is so much better then my Escape was. The gas mileage is better than my 07 Escape Hybrid. I haven't gone on long trips or up any mountains, but for getting from here to there, it is absolutely perfect and the 99 styling isn't outdated and still looks like a fairly new car. Just discovered the picnic table. So cool. I live in the Hippie community of Ocean Beach, Ca, and I think this care has finally found it's permanent home with me.
Gas Mileage, cuteness, get up and go.
Of course the passenger side arm rest, I mean they even have them for the backseat, so I'm a bit confused. Thhe drawer under the passenger side is a bit fudgy. But these things are so insignificant. I could come up with way worse criticisms for the Escape.
