Still looking for the right car for our son’s first car. He is going to boatbuilding school and will need to carry his tool in the future, so he would rather have a wagon than a sedan. We looked at some hatchbacks but they seem small or hard to get in and out of. His first choice is a Subaru Forester and now another person has suggested the Ford Escape. What are the concerns with the Ford vs the Subaru? Mileage that we are looking at is 120K to 150k for the 2001 to 2003.
Appreciate any thoughts on this.
