My bought-new Escape Hybrid now has 140,000 miles, and I have been looking at newer, sleeker, more technologically advanced vehicles. BUT, I have three criteria which no new vehicle can match...as far as I know. If somebody can point out a new vehicle that can, then I will check it out ASAP. My criteria are: 1. It must be factory-certified to tow my jet ski, which weighs almost 1,000 pounds. 2. It must have a fairly level roof rack, as I occasionally need to carry fence posts or 4X8 sheetrock. 3. It must have a combined EPA mileage of 31, which is both my advertised and actual mileage. I am rather adamant that all three criteria must be met. Close is not acceptable. If this sounds unreasonable, consider that my Escape was introduced in 2005. Surely, I should not have to accept less capable replacements. Any comments and suggestions are appreciated. p.s. I'm not a new member, just haven't posted in a couple of years.
