Just for show --- It amazes me that the majority of taxis in Las Vegas are Escapes! With the average daily summer temperature in the desert at around 110 degrees, they take quite a pounding and keep on running. The driver I spoke to has 143,000 miles on his 2006 V6 and had replaced the alternator four times but had no other major problems. I find that amazing! He was using straight synthetic Valvoline 5W-30 every 6,000 miles.

The city of Minneapolis uses mostly Ford Escapes (once in a while you find a Jeep Liberty among the fleet) for parking meter duty... although I spotted one in Park Police decor.
