2013 Ford Mustang

Trim: Boss 302
by Ian_Mac on 10-11-2012
Just a fantastically fun car
Mustangs have a special kind of reputation, some of it fair some of it not. As ever the interior just doesn't seem to match up with what is honestly a beautiful looking exterior, but this is made up for by the incredibly comfortable seats and steering wheel material.

The throb of the 5L engine is a genuine thrill even for a non-car fanatic, and it has some serious pep when you want to accelerate into space on the highway. This is all fantastic fun, and of course the Boss 302 is something special so does turn heads (and ears) wherever it goes.

2013 Ford Escape

Trim: Titanium
by shanes on 10-11-2012
Super high tech CUV with great interior
This is my first Ford. A few years ago I would have never even considered purchasing one. But with Ford's financial performance, great new cars and much improved reputation I decided to give them a try.

We looked at ever major CUV/SUV before deciding on the new 2013 Escape. One of the big deciding factors was the great legroom - only the Nissan was comparable. The other big win for this new Escape is the vast amount of gadgets and electronics built into the car.

First of all, the MyFord Touch system is brilliant. The voice system is powered by Nuance and you'll immediately recognize it as the same system that powers the iPhone. It even has the same "Siri" female voice. We had no trouble connecting our iPhone's to the car and love that it has dual USB ports for charging or playing music. The touchscreen is big and bright and is positioned to reduce glare from outside.

The engine feels powerful and overall the vehicle is very responsive when driving. We purchased the Titanium edition so a few other gee-wiz features like auto parallel parking and a neat rear lift gate. We haven't tried the auto-parking yet as we're not that brave but from the videos on YouTube it seems pretty cool. The rear lift gate has a unique feature for when your hands are full - you simply wave your foot under the rear bumper and the power opener will activate. A neat feature but I worry about it breaking.

Although we've only had this vehicle a short time we really love it. The exterior is much nicer than the previous boxy Esscape and is more like a CRV or RAV4. But compared to them we like it even more.

2010 Ford Escape

Trim: XLT FWD 2.0L
by Chambu on 10-11-2012
Value for your money
This was my first domestic and I finally got it because of good reviews and I liked the value it offered. A lot of little touches like the built-in blind spot mirror, auto-dimmer on the rear view mirror etc. make this vehicle a pleasure to drive. Ford Sync system works great. The rear tire blew out a couple of times, but I was able to patch them up. The fuel economy during city was around 9.8L/100Km in the first year but dropped a little to around 10L/100Km after that. All in all a good vehicle.
