    My new 347

    is that a Dart block or a stock Ford block. I love the 347's such a great bore and stroke combo.

    Bad or Burnt Exhaust smell in cabin during hard acceleration.

    well picked up a brand new 15 Ex a couple of weeks ago and noticed the smell on the way home then I find this huge thread about it. I can not believe Ford has not corrected this since 2011. I just hit 900 miles and smell it every morning when I merge on the freeway. uugg

    Ok I just picked it up and drove about 15 miles home . It feels like I am back home. The seats are night and day. It now hits me I put 26k on the escape and now realize how much nicer the EX really is.

    great thanks for the advice . The escape seats are small for me and it is very noisy. I know it is a great value but I think the EX will put a smile back on my face when it comes to long drives. I am surprised that the XLT fully loaded is just about a limited minus the memory seats and power...

    Time to come back

    I drove a sport today and have ruled out the limited as the twin turbo engine really gets up and goes well. I will keep this one for a few years so I will take my time looking for one that I like.

    new 2014 Escape the Ex is gone

    Over all I like it as I just feel at home in it since it is a Ford suv. I like the 32mpg on the highway but it will take a while to get used to the 4 banger power since my Ex had the 4.6 with 3:73 tow package gear but overall I am happy for what I could afford to spend. My heart still jumps...
