Talk About New Cars.

I am in the market for two new cars for home.

Only one problem I cant get the wive to agree on what i think she should get as it is better dealing with one manufacturer.

My next car wont be a Holden, Wive wants a Tarago or Voyager but she gives me the gripes as they dont look after car.

There is nothing in the Ford range that appeals to her, I want her to get an AU3 but complains it is to big , she drives a 4WD go figure that logic.

Not hard to guess why I want her to get a ford :D

Any suggestions short off doing her in joke

Well I suppose she might drive the explorer,but a 6 cylinder sedan is about right say a fairmont.

Me well I will have to settle for TE50, I could hang out to september if I had tofor the AV really would like to see what the motor is doing in this.

The Escape (or Tribute) is quite a decent car, despite what Drive.com.au tells you. The only downside is that it lacks the Fairmont creature comforts and ride quality. I'd consider looking at the new Cherokee too, its well sorted but a more serious 4X4 than the Escape. Is there a particular price range you're looking at here??

The parents just bought an Escape and I have to agree with XLR8_2001, they are pretty damn good. Handles well, decent brakes and responsive engine.

Had to test out the brakes or some braindead moron who doesn't know what a headcheck or looking in his mirrors is, moved straight across into my lane when I was basically beside him. Gotta love that ABS, saved a trip to the panel shop and the car was only 1 week old.

Anyway, the escape would get my vote, just cause it is so easy to drive.

If you can hang out that long it might be the way to go.
