We used to have a 95 that was the same color, but with tan rocker panels. I loved that truck. I was supposed to have it passed down to me but we traded it in on the diesel, so now I'll get that, which Im pretty ok with.

Just out of curiosity, but does anyone here have any experience with the new 2013 Ford Escapes? Specifically, the Titanium model with the 2.0 turbo motor.

I'm getting close to the point of purchase, but would like to get some feedback from fellow anglers on some pro's and cons on the vehicle.

A few of the things that I like about it are: Features, Fuel economy, and towing capacity (3500lbs).

If you have one, is there anything about his vehicle that you don't like? Does it seem like it's missing any key features? Would you recommend it to another friend or family member?

Working on finding one now.

Finding a good, low mile 4runner has been tough so far.

From the photo, it looks like you pulled the trigger on the new vehicle, what are your impressions?

I like it a lot. I pulled the trigger at the end of April. 10,000 miles later, I'm still in love. It's just about the perfect size vehicle for me. 9' rods can stay assembled in the car, pulls the boat just fine, good gas mileage when it's not pulling the boat (avg 25.5 mpg), and has all of the features that I wanted in a vehicle. I didn't end up buying the titanium in the end because I couldn't justify the price difference. Same motor in mine, as well as identical features. I really couldn't ask for a better vehicle for what I paid. I've recommended it to everyone that has asked, and will continue to do so.
