My Mustang had a near-Ecoboom with a bad head gasket. I got a new cylinder head under warranty, and this Escape as a rental for a week. As good as it looked, with the smallest engine, this car was not fun.

And went on a fun as hell run with cars that cost many Mustangs. This year had ups and downs, but it sure had some kickass moments.
