Kept it in the family...

After my moms accident with the escape she got tired and scared of it tipping over... The damage was not allot when you look at it but had tranny issues, now the A/C hoses out of the condenser leak and she just got tired of the issues after it was fixed.

We shopped around for about 3 weeks.

Car we looked at were MINI, Fit, Civic, Versa, Matrix, Forester, Fusion/Milan.

Mini - too expensive
Fit - too small but really liked the car, I loved it too and damn jumpy with auto.
Versa - bland
Matrix - she said is so so
Forester - Loved it but too expensive at 23k and gas millage not that great.
Fusion/Milan - nice but dealer would not let go of the price and also

While checking out the Milan at the dealer, dealer mentioned the 3. Walked to the lot, and loved the Silver with auto and abs/ebd. Got it right there.

Paid 17.888 for the 3 and got 13333 for the escape. I know I got them to those figures. Out of pocket only 6k
