Hello everyone,

A week ago I test drove a 2008 escape, and I must say it was DELIGHTFUL!
99% sure I'll be getting a black 08 XLT FWD. Gonna be my 1st new car for my 25th bday. :wave:

here's a pic of the one I tested

Thanks everyone!

The only bad thing is that there are too many nice colors inside and out. Can't make up my mind :lol:

When I was looking at the 2008 models (as well as the Edge), Ford kept telling me what I couldn't have on a 2008 Escape.

Blazing Copper Metallic? Nope, gone with the end of the 2007 model year. :cuss:

Vista Blue? Not on the Limited, or on the Hybrid with a moonroof (???). :cuss:

Sonic Blue? Nope, another goner. :cuss:

Redfire? That would make my third consecutive Ford SUV with Redfire. Ma-in-law didn't even know I had a new Escape back in 2004. :lol:

So I bought an Edge.

(and I overheard a Dearborn marketing type say "See? It worked! We moved the sucker up a notch!" :doh: )

Sucks that all those colors got removed. I still probably would have gone with black. :p
I think I've settled on black with camel interior.

Black with black interior and dark tinted windows. :thumb: :shades:

The only way to roll.... (Yes I know my own car is green, but I couldn't find a black one! OK?) ;)

Sounds great! I hope you get what you want! :shades:

I am currently looking at and negotiating for a 2008 Mariner for my wife. She likes the Vivid Red paint and I like the stone color leather interior. I am trying to find someone with a X plan pin number that I could have and get the purchase price down. Anyone here have any unused PIN? Or know of one? :shrug:

No roof rails either!!!

Not like we are going to go on some expedition to the outer reaches of the Metro-home... :shades: I was just on the Blue Oval News Forum. No PINs seem to be available. Several requests, but no replys to them...Hmmm. Some one there did post that I only had to buy some Ford Stock. It's like $10 right now, so that I could get a PIN. That would be cool! $10 investment, save several thousand. Count me in for that...

Only a baked potato?

I start to crave a 230-item breakfast buffet.
