It is the Escape Limited with most of the bells and whistles. I did not get the DVD screen, or the DVD headrests. I did not get the park assist. I was expecting the Tow package and running boards, but the car we found had 5k miles on it, and we chose a new one vs a used one for the lease. it has Sync, sirrius radio, voice assistance, 911 assist. (if the air bags deploy it calls the cops for me) back up camera, leather, seat warmers, bum and back, with chrome wheels, which match the chrome accents of the Limited package.
I already synced my phone to it, so I can hear my books on tape without having to plug in 3 different cords, and turn to aux, and make sure the radio station is on the right FM channel...I just push the media button and she says "May I help you?" and I say "bluetooth audio" and whatever is playing on my Iphone comes thru the speakers. If I get a phone call, we just push a button on the steering wheel to answer and it comes thru the speakers. No more DH fumbling when his phone rings (and it rings a lot!) or handing it off to me to answer. It wont let you do any set ups while the car is going. I had to wait for DH to park the car. Safety feature so you are not distracted driving. So, I can play the regular radio (free) my Iphone (free after I download the songs) or sirrius (i negotiated 2 years free) or Ford Sync will hook me up ( i negotiated 3 years free.) So, several toys that I dont know yet how to use.
DH came home and was like a small boy. He went right away to the Weather Tech website to get window vents, floor mats, cargo mat, and bug deflector for it. He hasnt named her yet, but I suspect it wont be long.
If you look up Ford Escape Package 302A you will see all the features. Im really disappointed about the running boards, but its pretty low to the ground, like a higher station wagon, so its not bad. Its wonderful to have the heated seats, so my back gets all toasty warm when its cold out.
I was so sad to trade in my car, and shed a tear at her when I said goodbye to a great ride, but to see how happy DH is today makes it all worth while. is also confusing the nosy neighbors who are driving really slowly past the house. they no longer see his truck or my car, and now there is a strange blue car in the driveway! what on earth could be happening?? did they sell the house? did they split up? The DH got a new Marine Corp license plate, so its not the same # as before.
The seats are really comfy and it has that luscious new car smell. mmmm....DH said he wants me to drive it today to see how it handles if I am up to it. I just slept for 12 hours! I was spent when we came home.
