Hey guys, I'm new here. Just wanted to introduce myself, say hi, and add my escape to the site. I just picked up a 2010 Ford Escape XLT AWD, black on black. I didn't want leather, but I had to get the sync and moonroof package. Also got the cargo package as well. I traded my second car, which was a black 2006 Ford Explorer XLT V6 4x4 for it. This is my 3rd car. My first car was a gold ash 2005 Ford Escape Limited V6 4wd that was FULLY loaded. I felt sad after making the mistake of trading that one in for the explorer (which wasn't loaded :( )and so I had to go back to the escape. I'm going to post pics up soon. I want to add a couple of things to it.....1) reverse parking sensors, 2) 17" chrome clad rims, 3) spoiler (not sure if i want the one that comes with the sport appearance package or if i want the other one that comes out a little). I had the spoiler on the old escape and loved it. Sorry for the long message but I want to hear your opinions. Thanks!

Congrats on the recent purchase! I too have a black on black escape xlt, only it is an 09. I changed out the silver grille for a black one. I had 2006 Black Eddie Bauer Explorer before the escape and loved it, but it was just killing me on gas and I didn't need such a large truck. I also am from NYC, hope to see you on the road!

Thanks. Yeah the gas was killing me too. Especially living in Manhattan. I thought about getting the 4Cyl escape but I liked the extra horsepower and thought more about the snow storms. (Not sure how the 4cyl handles that). Do you or anyone else know how to post pics on here?

Thank you! :) My husband is driving the Escape now. Here is a thread with a closer look at our Escape with the spoiler...

Loved the spoiler on the Escape soo much that I had to have one for my Mariner. :yes:

Both spoilers were purchased at spoilerexpress.com and were installed at a local shop in our town. :)

Judging by the orange ez-pass is it safe to assume you are in law enforcement?

Great looking escape, looks good on the streets of Manhattan where I grew up!
