Thank you!!! I guess I'll take the time now to make my first post on this board. I've been creeping through the boards for a while now reading posts on what people have to say about their Escapes. I am going to be buying my first car in about a month and its great to see all the good things that everyone has to say about their cars. It just reconfirms that the Escape is exactly what I want to get! Hopefully I'll pick up the posting now and become a bit more active around here!
