Great on gas and it's like riding in first class

2002 Ford Escape XLS Choice

I've been very satisfied with my vehicle. It's great on gas mileage and it drives like a dream. I honestly made a good choice when I decide to purchase it. It's like riding in a bubble I don't hear or feel any outside distractions or the bumps in the road. I'm thinking about getting another one. And the color matches my personality.
