i got a new car

Post #1 by rbohm » Wed Aug 26, 2020 1:28 pm

well new to me anyway. a 2016 escape titanium. neat little SUV. a little hard for me to get into given my infirmities, but easy to get out of and that is what is most important to me.

it has the turbo 2.0 four and is silver ingot with a tan interior.

I can only do short posts becsuse Im teathered to Wi Fi. I know you understand.

The Escape Hatch is a good ride. Merchandiser bucket which can be kept on top of a bag on the passenger seat will help you get in. Our Right Hooker Escapes and Mazda Tribunes are the same car

:beer: Congrats rbohm, I bought a new 2006 Escape V6 1st Gen, and sure liked it was a very comfortable size. Those 2016 Escapes sure look a lot different and updated with lots of nice features. Enjoy your new SUV. :thumbup: :nod:
Even a bad day Drag Racing is still better than a good day at work!

Current project is a 1988 John Deere 420 Garden Tractor I need a few small parts to get it fixed, plus some cosmetic items, maybe a few attachments, if you happen to have or know of JD 420 parts would welcome the help!

i am still getting a feel for the car, but so far i love it. rides almost as well as my old grand marquis, and is the right size. i just wish it had telescoping steering, but no big deal on that.
