I checked with my dealer and it looks like the safety package is not going to impede the future installation of a moon roof. Gotta have that roof light! Actually when I got my current Escape 2-1/2 years ago, I thought it was just a luxury toy, but I've come to appreciate its contribution to summer ventilation!

Has anyone investigated aftermarket in-dash car stereos, for those of us unwilling to fork over $2K for the eye-candy computer screen model? I'm just wondering whether there's anything behind the generic CD changer/radio that will make aftermarket installation of satellite/MP3 deck a problem.
