Before we went to one vehicle, I had a Mercury Tracer. I had it for 14 years and sold it to my nephew, who blew it up after 8 months. He put it in a crusher and I was devestated. It was my baby. I shed a tear for my little "Raindrop". A nickname my dtr gave it because of its shape. We were looking at the Escape, but I can't manage getting in and out of the thing and we found it cramped for shoulder space for us.
