Car prices are always high here - mainly, I think, because of import charges. When I first came here I had an unpleasant surprise when it came to buying my first car. As anywhere, dealer prices are higher than private sales.


Before it used to be due to import duties, nowadays they replaced the loss of duties for US origin vehicles by tacking a first tag fee.

A car here will run 40 to 50% more over their original price elsewhere they got imported from.

the transmissions in the Ford Escape during those years are garbage,just sayin'....


There’s a lot of information on all the problems for those years range on the model.
Same that happened with my E500.

You don’t even require a mechanic to fix most of the issues that could come up.

Like I said the E500 for example. About 90% of the issues are quick fix and not too complex, once you know about them and their cause.

I think the OP did his homework or has experience in the model?
