This raises the following question... who around here would be interested in my Explorer when the Escape comes in? It's a dark green '96 4WD XLT model (anyone in the area who knows me has likely seen it), and is in decent shape, good running condition. About the worst part of it are the front seats, that are showing their age with cracks in the leather. There'll probably be 120-125k miles on it by the time I'm done with it, and because of that I probably won't be able to get more than about 1500 with a trade-in. I'm asking for a thousand more than that, including the after-market stereo that I won't be needing anymore (except for MP3 playback, the Escape is coming standard with everything my current system has).
My brother has already expressed interest, but I'm wondering if anyone else wants it.
