    I bought a new 2013 Ford Escape 3 months ago, biggest mistake of our lives! We own a 2009 Escape and love it but the 2013 is junk, the windows roll down and then won't come up again, the CD player had to already be replaced, the gas mileage is HORRID, we get 23 on straight highway miles, Ford needs to be sued over this vehicle! Do not buy or you will regret it.

    You still buy American cars? I thought people in 21st century are wiser.

    Do we know if the new Nissan Pathfinder is still going to use the 4.0L V6? If Nissan had their act together they would put the 3.7L V6 in the new Pathfinder to get a further boost in MPG's and better performance. Nissan would be wise to start using the 3.7L V6 in their Frontier model because most of the improvements have all been cosmetic.......all show with no go.
    I can't wait till somebody does a back to back comparison of all the SUV's in this class to see how they fair against each other.

    Matt - Press material for the Nissan Pathfinder Concept, which is a preview of the 2013 Pathfinder, seems to indicate a new, more efficient V-6: "Addressing buyers' desire for more efficiency in every aspect of their lives, the Pathfinder powertrain utilizes a refined V6 engine mated to a next-generation Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) to provide a 25 percent*** increase in combined City/Highway fuel economy (over the previous V6-equipped model)...

    The new engine and CVT combination offers improved efficiency, while maintaining nearly the same horsepower as the previous generation's larger displacement V6, and delivers responsive acceleration in a variety of conditions."

    Suzanne - Thank you for giving me more insight into what Nissan has in store for the new Pathfinder. I'm all for Nissan doing what ever it takes to make the new Pathfinder more fuel efficient needless to say. As to how well the CVT will be received in this SUV time will tell.
    Love the article :-)
