Yesterday we traded the Kia and bought a 2005 Ford Escape. It's in excellent condition and only has 25,000 miles on it. I love it and am excited to take it into the mountains. It has a smart 4WD system that allows it to determine when it should go into 4WD. That's so great for me. And the best part is that the driver's seat adjusts back and forth AND up and down. I don't have to use my pillow anymore!
