Glad it's worked out well for you and welcome back even if it's for a short time.

The perception that they are unreliable junk will never change.
Really nice way for a newbie to welcome back an original member of the forum.
Just because your negotiating skills are lacking does not mean American domestic autos are junk.

LOL I know.,. He obviously does not know much ! But its funny! I gotta be honest too., The Escape is a way better car then the Rav was (2006 vs 2014, it aught to be) and i seriously don't care what the resale value 10+ year down the road anyway.

anyway, thanks for the welcome RTexasF. Hope you have been well!

its simple. We liked the new escape better. More power, way better looks and we drove the New Gen Rav and we both felt it was not even as good as our 06 version Rav4.

Wish you all the best!
