So I've got to get a new car. We have a small family but we are pretty active with skiing and biking so I'd like a small SUV.
I've narrowed it down to the 2012 Nissan Rogue because of it's reliability rating but I really like the look of the 2012 Ford Escape. It doesn't look like a jelly bean like all the other SUVs. I like the straight lines and the layout of the inside. However it seems per consumer reports the Escape has a history of minor transmission issues and that concerns me considering the reason I'm getting a new car is because my Toyota's transmission has gone out for the 2nd time.
Idk much about Fords. I'm worried I'll get it and end up in the repair shop. Any advice? Any experience with Fords?
