Default Any experience with 2011 Ford Escape ?

I am considering buying a 2011 Ford Escape XLT with 90k miles on it to upgrade from my 2002 Saturn SL1 (275k miles on it! )

It has the All-Wheel drive, V6 engine, SYNC and a sunroof options above the standard options.

Anyone have experience with the Escapes from around that timeframe?

About the only cosistent complaints I can find searching the internet are:

- Rear wheel wells appear to rust out early

- Loudish road noise

- Transmission is like a truck and not a car (duh)

I plan on taking it to Ziebart after purchase to put a remote start in it, do a rust prevention underbody spray with noise dampening and detail it.

Any experience?

Walk Worthy,
The future is so bright; I gotta triple up!

I almost bought one, but the deal was horrible. I was lucky to Escape!
It's okay to complain, but if you only complain, nobody is going to take you seriously, Chicken Little.
