Rented an Escape for 3 days and then test drove a Saturn Vue. No comparison to the Murano which I & my wife drove today. I love the Murano and will buy one when I can get the $$$. Escape seems bigger than the Murano and doesn't handle nearly as well. Vue seems Ok in terms of size but engine is thrashy and interior seems cramped compared to Murano. I liked the way the Murano was so smooth during acceleration and cornering. The color selection is not the best but I'm in love with the vehicle.
