There is no extroidenary story associated with my posting. I just wanted the opportunity to voice my praise for the men and women of the Ford Motor Company for all that was done by them toward the design and assembly of my Escape!
Its this really cool thing that allow's you to change the gears of your own vehicle by yourself by pushing in this peddle and selecting a gear that best suites its purpose.
It used to be available from the Rangers to the F350's and higher. Other companies still offer it yet thankfully I like old Ford the best. When they still had manual transmissions and legendary engines (I-6, 7.3l).
