Happy to announce that, with a little help, Natalie’s Mom is riding in a new Ford Escape! Her 1998 GMC Jimmy had simply had it and was time to put that out to pasture. There was an attempt to scrap it during cash-for-clunkers, but things didn’t work out. All that’s in the past now, though, and Mom is riding in style.
She went with a dark gray (I believe the “sterling gray metallic”) color which is pretty sharp and the 4 cylinder engine for a great boost in gas mileage. It has plenty of power for her driving style and the intelligent 4-wheel drive will get her through the Michigan and Ohio weather seasons with ease.
I’m looking forward to driving it to check it out myself. So far all reports are that she loves it and can’t wait to show it off. Congrats and enjoy, Mom!
