Re: i hate the governor

the vehicle is not safe to drive at faster speeds, that's why its there. It's not the "fun police"

Re: i hate the governor

I posted something similar about my 2004 Sport Trac shutting down at 85-90. I was told that the vehicle isn't overly safe to drive at higher speeds. One tech even told me, "Remember, the Starship Enterprise wasn't designed for atmospheric flights." Kind of threw me, there...

I almost bought an Escape...until I drove one. Nice vehicle, no doubt about it, but just not "fitting" for the "truck person" I suppose.

Re: i hate the governor

I have a 2001 escape with the 3.0 V6 (currently in shop getting engine replaced...) 105 in it is a blast and I've found the Escape to corner very well considering it's a SUV... tight fourleaf clovers at 50 sometimes 60 mph b4 the tires even start to make a noise... then again i like fast fast is good.. for me 103 in an escape does not = death wish it means <music starts> here he comes, here comes speed racer. He's a demon on wheels...
