Hi all, Looking forward to getting to know some people with similar interests. I just purchased a new 2015 High Altitude for my daily driver. I usually look for an AWD with good fuel mileage. In Nebraska sometimes the winters can be strong. I traded in a 2012 AWD Escape with 18k. It was my second Escape that rusted away in a hurry. Between rust and poor dealer warranty work I decided to look at Jeeps. I went to look at a used Jeep but drove home with a new one after six hours of intense negotiating. So far I really like it (all 320 miles). The road noise seems loud at highway speeds but I may be able to get used to it. I just hope the body holds together longer than the Ford Escape.
