New/used Escape owner

Postby ChrisRobin - December 11th, 2016, 3:32 pm

Picked up a good condition 2011 Escape a couple days ago (XLT, V6, AWD). I came from a 2004 SVT Focus that was written off by the insurance after I got rear-ended.

So far I'm happy with it! It was in great condition with relatively low KMs. It also has the Sync system that I just updated through the Ford website.

I'll be posting up threads here and there asking for opinions or thoughts on certain upgrades; swapping out the entire radio system and how to keep the steering wheel controls in play, and installing a backup camera.

Ripping around in this thing is a lot easier than a manual 6-speed go-cart on coilovers!
