The Escape should have a manual transmission option. The Kuga equivalent in Europe has a 6 speed manual. In addition to smoother shifting, fuel saving coasting on hills, manuals are quieter. Our main gripe with automatics is the whine noise. They all have it.
In addition to manual transmissions being a quieter, smoother ride... over the life of the vehicle, they require MUCH LESS service.
Please bring a 6 speed manual to the Escape line. (Mazda has it.)
