    Took my 2009 Escape in so they could re-program the drive-train computer.

    Seems like the 6 speed AT is shifting a bit better now, and that little bit of lugging is gone,
    when going slowly up steep hills.

    My Ford is only a year old, and I've already got over 2,400 miles on it! :p

    I guess is was a smart move to skip buying a Hybrid Escape..

    I'm still getting 23 to 24 MPG around town, when I take it easy.
    And don't get stuck in traffic. (Where is this recession anyway)?
    I go in and buy gas about once a month.. If it's down under 1/2 tank.

    Not sure what the highway MPG is this summer, since I have
    not made any good road trips yet this year. That on my list.

    It would be fun to see if I can hit 40 MPG for 100 miles or so..
