I bought myself a present today. In my typical fashion I bought myself the best of the bottom. I bought a tricked out 2007 Ford Escape. It isn’t the hybrid that I have been dreaming about, but I just can’t afford one of those (much less FIND one). Ford is offering 0% financing on their trucks and I qualified!
Dude, it has EVERYTHING, (well, not a GPS, as my mom pointed out), keyless entry, security system, moonroof, the bigger 3.0 V6 (vs the 2.3 liter), in dash 6 disc CD changer that reads MP3 Discs and has the speed-dependant volume feature, class II trailer hitch, power everything (although I think a power seat is a bit excessive if you ask me).
I test drove a lot of cars today. They had a nice little Focus with 3600 miles on it, but with me being so tall, the 4 door Focuses have a terrible blindspot with the door pilar. The older cars coming off of leases were not much cheaper then new, and with the financing I got on the new, it would have worked out to be the same money in the end.
I like how it drives, it fits well. I can see out of it. I can actually use ALL the review mirror! Part of the view isn’t cut off but the roof. And the best part… NO dealership vandalism – no sticker on the back of it!
Well, enough of me rambling, on with the VIDEOS!
Yeah, I know it may not be a big deal for a lot of you, but this is the first car that I bought having SEEN it first. It’s the first car I bought that didn’t have MORE miles on it then the prior one. And while it’s the smallest of the SUVs that Ford makes, it is totally tricked out!
