Interesting how many folks fail to even notice that I changed cars. The Escape, as one journalist noted, looks like a Focus hatchback that someone stuck an air hose in and inflated.

Fun car !
In the FWD if you give it gas and you are only holding the wheel with one hand it torque steers to the next lane.

I was going to get the AWD as I thought that would fix it, but the fleet manager assured me it would do the same thing.

So my question is....does the AWD help the torque steer?

TIA
