    Help! I am confused I can't decide on what to buy between a Honda CRV (4x4) and a Ford Escape 3li . Can you help me in the Pros and Cons of both cars? I read previous thread on this but it was an old issue. What about today, is there a difference since the 2004 thread? I am for safety, service, and performance. Thanks

    Not much difference.

    Both cars are gas guzzlers, but the 3.0 Ford even more so than the CRV. The Ford is faster and more fun to drive, but the CRV has a good amount of space.

    Personally, the 2.3 NBX Escape is a better choice than the 3.0 V6.

    maintenance and pricing at the dealerships are similar.

    Over the long term, I'm not sure.

    CRV's periodic maintenance is every 10k kms, not sure with the escape...
    but quite expensive, on the average, it would cost around 8k per PMS,

    compared to RAV4, usually cost only around 3k per 5,000 kms

    Ah, okay, 10k kms na rin pala ang CRV (like the Civic and City). Yes, it'll definitely cost more, because the long change interval requires synthetic oil.

    I believe the Escape's oil change interval is 5000 kms. Around 4k per oil change (based on what I spend for the Lynx RS).

    Ive used both and if resale wasnt an issue id go for an escape. Much much better ride, as far as fuel consumption is concerned theyre pretty much the same. Smart choice is the CRV. Even used ones are fetching high in the market

    Hello mga bossing,

    At this time po ba may nakakaalam or may tip na kayo kung kailan lalabas ang ALL NEW 2.3L FORD ESCAPE ? Alam na po natin na na-introduce na ito sa Taiwan and Australia. So ibig sabihin po ba niyan ay hindi na advisable bumili ng Escape ngayon dahil nga sandali lang at luma na kaagad ? I'm planning to buy one and kaya kong maghintay for 2 to 3 months, palagay ninyo nandito na all new model sa ganyang time frame?

    Thanks, mga bossing
