The Ford Escape is one of those cars that… I don’t know… What does it like to be? It’s a compact SUV, that’s for sure. But it behaves like a sedan (sort of)? It’s a great vehicle, make no mistake but there are a few things to be wary about before you shell out the PHP 1.5 to 1.8 Million of your hard earned money.   The Escape, also known as the Kuga in some parts of the world, is a competitor to the Honda CR-V.

Well, let’s see, shall we?   First off, it’s a cute car. It also looks a lot like the CLS class, that sporty 4 door …

The Jeep Renegade is somewhat like a CUV and a mini SUV. Or is a CUV a mini SUV? Whatever. The Renegade is one of those few vehicles that we can use to tackle the main issue: Can it stack up to the legendary Suzuki Jimny?   Well, yes and no. No because, let’s face it, it’s twice the price and it does actually get hung up or stuck on some small hills because of it’s long wheelbase. On the plus side, though, this thing has many creature comforts to make even General George P…
