    no one suggested the grand vitara?!

    for the base price (2wd) of a CRV, XTrail, etc...

    you can get a grand vitara with 4x4...

    reliable and not too common... though a bit small... but can still seat 5 people... relatively good resale.

    just my 2 cents

    i think ok na escape ngayon sa 2.3L

    I got the 2.0L years back and hirap siya cause the body is quite heavy. Good thing ford now offers bigger engine for this type of entry level suv

    I dont know about your unit, but a sales agent told me that Ford had quality problems with the 2.0l Escape. He did not elaborate further (regarding the problem).

    CRV, but go for the 2.4l 4x4 since the 2.0l 4x2 seem to have very poor fuel efficiency and may suffer from the pull-to-the-right-problem. Great resale value. Today, a 2002 CR-V sells for Php 200K less its original sticker price.

    Based on various reviews and research, the X-Trail is a better overall package than the CR-V, esp in off-roading. But if you look at the classifieds, year old X-Trials are selling for Php 300+ less its original sticker prices. Big depreciation, which is a good thing if you are in the market for pre-owned X-Trails.

    The Escape is not so bad, but it feels cramped inside. This car is better off purchased pre-owned, so at least the effects of depreciation won't hit you so bad as it did to the original owner.

    To answer the question again, CR-V 2.4l 4x4 if it were to be purchased brand new. X-Trial, if it were purchased pre-owned.

    Regarding my unit
    2.0L 4x2 Escape...

    at 15,570 kms... owned for 1 year and 10 mos to be exact, wala pa naman major or minor problems encountered. Or perhaps mababa lang masyado usage ko. I must admit, tinitipid ko sya. hehe.

    I Own a CRV, so i voted for the CRV..

    PROS
    - SPACE (This is the most important thing for me,considering im 6'4)
    - ENGINE
    - Driving position
    - Handles like a Car
    - Fuel Consumption ( 11 km/L ) with khaos nga lang

    CONS
    - INTERIOR looks sooo CHEAP
    - Bumpy Ride (i own a 4x2)
