'06 Escape at 7700 miles

Vehicle
2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
This is the only vehicle I know of that exceeds the EPA window posting. If one modifies driving habits, the 4X4 Escape will return 34 MPG hwy and 31 MPG city. Fit and finish better that my neighbor's Honda Accord. Ride unexpectedly good for size of vehicle. Very quiet except when 2.3 is revving, and only then is engine noticeable. Transition from electric to gas is almost seamless. Cruise control on long trips returns better MPG than not using cruise control. Nits are lack of steering wheel adjustments & unlighted cruise controls.
Favorite Features
1. Better MPG than expected. 2. "Playing" with throttle to stay on electric as long as possible. 3. Nice driving characteristics. 4. Does long distance trips well.
Suggested Improvements
1. Allow for telescoping steering wheel for taller drivers. 2. Light the cruise control buttons on the steering wheel. 3. Allow electric drive to exceed 30 MPH.
