Cool We Just Added a New Addition To The Family



Hi All-

I wanted to let you guys know that my girlfriend is the proud owner of a 2010 Ford Escape Limited. This car is truly a gem and a very rare find at the pricepoint my girlfriend wanted to pay. We sold her Camry back in April and she's since been driving one of my cars while looking for another one. She went back and forth between the Ford Escape and the Sonata SE and as it turns out the Escape won the shoot-out. She really likes the fact that she can sit higher in the Escape and have more visibility. Add to that the fact that Escape posed a greater value proposition when comparing the features with that of the Sonata.

Vital Stats
Mileage at purchase: 17K
Purchase Price: $18K
2WD 2.5L Engine
Sangria Red


Features
Dual Zone Climate Control (I'm really happy about this as we're never on the same accord when it comes to cabin temp)
Back-up Camera/sensors
Sync
Heated Seats
Black-on-black leather Interior
Sunroof
Alloy wheels
Ambient Lighting
Programmable garage door opener
Piano black accents with chrome bits
Chrome lower front plate
Chrome accents on the tailgate

This was truly a steal and one that I've been looking for, for awhile. I've purchased all of my vehicles on-line in the past and have traveled as far as Kansas City and New York to pick them up sight unseen. The Escape was located down in Roanoke, VA which is about a 7hr. drive from Columbus, OH. Everywhere else we looked locally we couldn't find any Escape Limiteds selling for less than $23K with the same specs most of which lacked the back-up camera and sensors. I wanted to find with the lowest miles, lowest priced, and highest amount of features as possible for our pricepoint of $18K. This Escape was newly listed by a Mazda dealership in VA and I called them the same day it was posted (before they even had pictures up) to inquire about the car. The transaction went well with the dealer and we flew down Memorial Day weekend to pick-up the car. It has a couple door dings as well as a few scratches we plan to take care of but other than that the car looks, rides, and handles, like new. Needless to say this a quality built car that I know will provide us many good years of service.

Yeah I'd have to agree she really liked that Sangria Red color so I was glad we were able to find one in that color in addition to all of the options.

Hey Aus I have a couple photos that I've posted at the bottom of my original post. I would like to post a few more but ever since that update took place on this website and GMi I've been having some problems posting multiple photos.
