It has finally arrived! After months of waiting around we were finally able to go pick it up and take it home. After taking it for a nice ride around town I can say that it was worth the wait. Maybe I'll do an official review once we've had it for a few months.
We purchased a 2010 Ford Escape Limited. It's black with a 4 cylinder engine , 4WD and a 6 speed transmission. Some of its more notable features are heated black leather seats, power moonroof, dual-zone electronic temperature control, ambient lighting, SYNC communication system, "wet trunk" cargo storage and a 7 speaker (inc. subwoofer) sound system. It has tons of other great features but those are probably the best off the top of my head.
So far it feels like it has lots of power for a 4 banger and seems pretty quiet on the highway. Ford was nice enough to drop just over $4000 off the final price and they handed it over with only 16km on the odometer. After several delays we are happy to have it parked in the garage. Now we just have to learn the voice commands for the SYNC system.
