2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

I have driven the Escape in downtown Chicago and on the wide open interstate. 30mpg in Chicago and 29.5 at highway+ speeds. Runs very smooth with the CVT transmission. Nice to know I can fill it full of gear and get that good of mileage.


Best Features

Mileage and CVT transmission.


Worst Features

Needs XM radio.

2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Makes me a believer in hybrids. Great mileage (averages 30) and well built. Have had no problems. Only negative is the ride is a little hard but it is a 4 wheel drive small truck.


Best Features

Gas mileage for a 4 wheel drive. Feel safe; it is not a small vehicle. Handles well and has more than enough power.


Worst Features

Soften ride a bit.

More standard luxury items such as auto dimming mirror and outside temp guage with compass.

2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

This is the most awesome vehicle I have ever owned. It is a practical size not some oversize behemoth. It handles really great, and you cannot knock the great fuel economy. It has plenty of power and the air conditioning is the best especially in Las Vegas during the summer. I love driving it everywhere


Best Features

Full of power, great air conditioning. The electrical outlets are great if you want to plug in a laptop. The navigational system is so cool.


Worst Features

Along with the heated seats offer cooled seats for us who live in the hot climate areas.

2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Owned new 2006 AWD for 1 month. 32-33 MPG city driving, 28 mpg highway in first 100 miles. 15 Gallon tank means 400+ miles between fills. Mileage is improving and 100% operation on electric motor below 40 MPH is increasing as vehicle is broken in. Wife is a former Passat-325E BMW driver - she loves how the Escape handles. Handles better than expected in high winds.


Best Features

All Metallic Silver (option) hides dirt and is stylish compared to those trimmed out in boring black. In dash 6 changer CD is great for trips for listening to books rather than each other or the poor radio stations in Iowa--no Air America! Rear double entry and seating control makes wife happy.


Worst Features

Air conditioning does not function at low RPM's unless on Max Air. Daytime driving lights should be standard. Outside temp gage and compass is a must for vehicles now. Rear window spoiler should be standard to help keep the rear window clean as possible for safety. Color options are very limited.
