Heya, Glad you can finally have some peace of mind after all you went through. I have read your ''adventure'' and can relate, in part, with some of the issues you had. Dang, you must feel good about this, anyhow, you deserve it, gratz man!!
I sincerely wish you the best of luck and loads of fun with the Escape. Btw, I went on a 1500 Km trip recently and saw dozens of Escape on the road and they are looking quite spiffy.
