Hello All,

RickyBird (not sure of her new name!) invited me to join this new forum. She really provided me alot of help trying to get registered at E-C.com! Thanks for starting this new forum!

I purchased a 2008 Escape XLT 6cyl FWD in mid-January and haved loved every minute of driving it...just broke 1K!!! We traded in a 2006 Expedition that was getting just about 6 miles to the gallon (yeah...I know...I barked up many trees but the dealer insisted nothing was wrong!). Currently I am getting about 16-17 mpg city and I just tickled 28 mpg on a 60 minute HWY drive yesterday...all on regular unleaded...oh yeah!!! :D

I'll have pictures of my baby soon, but the weather has been SO terrible in NW Missouri that it hasn't paid to really give it a good cleaning (I still rinse it once a week!). I am not that auto savvy so I am sure there'll be lots of questions!

Thanks again to RickyBird for her help and to those who have setup this new forum!

Yea, between the awesome data base that Jon's got & the technical knowhow here (I was a flat-rate mechanic in a car dealer for 10 years & also sold Snap-On tools), pretty much any question you have can be answered fairly easily in most cases.

Hay Scottie, Maybe start with the most frequent questions and searches like,

- Idle issues and the IAC
- mis-fire/coil packs
- Rear window and A-pilar squeeks
- Head light upgrades
- Intake Mods
- X-cal tuners

Pete - Let me know if you need any help finding or we can re-write them.
