We bought our Excape and C-Max Hybrid on the same weekend. Two months later we moved from San Jose, CA to Indianapolis, IN. We drove both cars, wife in the C-Max following me, our Great Dane, and our cat in the Escape. We caught a Snow strom from Northern Oklahoma all the way to Indiapolis. With the 4WD Escape leading the way and the C-Max close behind we trudged our way through the blizzard safely and without incident. I don’t think we would have fared near as well in our previous cars. What a relief to have gone Ford. Two snow storms later, and I am even more greatful for our Escape than ever!
