While returning from a birthday party at Universal Studios Hollywood with 4 ten year olds boys in our 2002 Ford Escape XLT (185,000 miles) we were hit from behind in the HOV lane by a Chevy Lumina. The impact pushed our car into a Land Rover in front of us. We were the filler in a car sandwich. Although our Ford Escape XLT was totaled all four boys and myself were protected from any serious injury. My son was sad that the car he was brought home from the hospital in had made it’s final drive but she protected our most valuable cargo. This happened on Friday the 25th, we purchased a 2012 Ford Escape XLT on Sunday the 27th. Confident that she will protect my son and his friends for the next 10 years of his life.
