Wink How I got my Escape!

Goin through some of my pix I found these This is my 03 Focus ZX3! (RIP) This is why I now got the escape!

Rear drivers side!


Pasengers side


Pasenger door


Rear hatch


A woman pulled out a paking lot on a main road, 2 lanes each way. Guess she thought her MDX was a super charged Nova or something!? Well she plowed me in the drivers door as she was turning left over the double yellow line. Spun me out into on-comeing traffic! Then got plowwed on the drivers side rear 1/4 panel! No one was hurt in this case, I was very lucky! As well as the others involved!(sp)

What did they give you for your trade? Did you get this repaired before you traded it in or did you trade it in this condition?

It was tottaled! I had it only a year and a half! It was my first car from a dealer ship. I got it paid off and about $2,000 for it, so it wasn't too bad of a loss. I needed a bigger car anyways w/ a baby now too. I even pay less for the scape than I was paying for the focus!

Not in all cases. In this case I got the car I needed for my now larger familey, and some money in my pocket! But yes, in most cases you are right though, just not all.

Now that, I think, would have been able to get across the street way ahead of me!

Does the Escape have better crash ratings than the Focus had? With a baby that would be an important consideration for me. Come to think of it I have not even looked at crash ratings yet. Anybody know how many stars the 08 Escape has in a crash? (Will the rating be the same for the 09 models?)

I dont know bout the scape, but I been looking at fusions (better MPG) and they have 4&5 stars all the way around. I would hope this truck is as good if not better than the hatchback!
