2005 Ford Maverick 2,3l Xlt — Very good car for a country where we have winter half the year. Good driving position. A little to high petrol consuption. Engine is barely coping with the weight of the car. Mine has a sunroof and leather interior! It's actually called a Ford Maverick in Europe.

Pros: 4 wheel drive

Cons: Fuel consuption

All About The Escape — The escape has great performance. The build quality is awesome. My favorite part about it is the sun/moon roof, and that it holds 6 CD's. The car is fun to drive in the summer, because you can go out on a nice day with all the windows down and sunroof open. The gas mileage isn't very good, but its not bad. there are not many maintenance costs involved.

Pros: sunroof, interior, and exterior

Cons: gas mileage

Ok Suv — Reliable car, great storage space, great in the snow. Under-powered (only a V-4), so will struggle when towing. OK gas mileage for an SUV (18-20 mpg). Would recommend hybrid version over standard, and V-6 over the 4 cylinder.

Pros: Great storage, very reliable

Cons: Aerodynamically horrible, and only a V-4

Not A Bad Little Truck For The Money — Nice little truck, not bad on gas, but quite a bit of road noise. The 3.0 litre engine has good enough acceleration the brakes seem to shimmy abit at high speed stopping. so far have made no repair. Outer appearance is pretty basic as is the inside. But it is fun to drive in the snow. I would recommend this truck but not the small engine.

Pros: Not bad on gas, and the 4by4 is great in the winter

Cons: Plain interior, and the road noise from the oringinal tires.

I Love It!!!!!1 — I love my SUV. Going from a little 4 cylinder to a 6 cylinder really does make a difference. When I push on the gas it goes. It was reasonably priced, mind you I got a wicked deal. The stereo in it is great. No need to upgrade that CD player.

Pros: Eveything is great

Cons: Only problem is it doesnt have an ipod/mp3 player hook-up.

My Escape — Love the cargo area. Great for hauling around Boxes of Avon for making deliveries and for moving. Like the 60/40 split back seat. Not bad gas mileage. All wheel drive kicks in automatically. (like that a lot)
