    1 word. GAY

    my dad just picked one up since it gets decent gas mileage and is higher up than his old accord.

    but dear god did he get the wrong engine. 2.3l 4cyl ecotec WTF. this shit is so so so slow.

    i took it out and slamming down on the accelerator did nothing for like 2 seconds.


    going from driving the torque-less 4cyl to my rams 5.2 is godly. i swear i will never drive a 4cyl truck suv ever.

    the v6 is actually a decent car. I'm not saying I'd buy one, but for a girl, it's a decent alternative to say a jeep liberty.

    i wouldnt mind the v6 at all. and 4wd. it would be a decent little vehicle to get to fishing spots and camping.

    am I wrong that the V6 escape gets far different gas mileage than the 4 cyl counterpart?
