    I told some of you guys about this last week I think, we are going to look for a small SUV for the wife today. She is fed up with the problems her RX8 has been giving over the last 10 months and shes wanting to trade. So we will see what happens today see likes the Escape SUV, its OK just not what I would pick out. I'm taking the camera so I will have pics when we get back. I think we are going to go around 2 or so, we have to wait on her friend to get her so she can sit with the kids while we go over.

    I don't think she will go for that, shes dead set on getting a SUV.....she wants to get pregnant by the end of the year.

    the explorer

    the escape was 25 grand fully loaded 2 wheel drive and the Explorer is full loaded as well but its 4x4 and 30 grand. So it looks like shes getting the explorer I guess :dunno: shes going to sleep on it tonight and decide tomorrow.

    Check this ride out I have never seen one before.........its called the FOOSE

    oh yea they have them but their about 6 grand more. The only thing she would get out of it is running boards and leather interior. The one she has picked out was loaded to the gills. .............6 disc cd changer / power moon roof / dual climate control / satellite radio / dual power seats...............and all the rest.

    I'm not sure what shes going to do yet :dunno:

    What about gas mileage? The escape is obviously going to get much better......I don't see the need for 4 wheel drive if she is doing normal driving in North Carolina.....

    I'm very happy with my Freestyle, but we haul more kids than you guys do.
    Good price, options, etc.

    So, you gonna spring for the loaded model?
