2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I own the 2005 Escape Hybrid. I've owned it now for 3 months and have nothing but good things to say about it. I've averaged approximately 27.8 miles per gallon over 8,050 miles, I drive approximately 36,000 miles a year. I routinely hit the 30 miles per gallon mark in the on-board computer. I have never owned a vehicle that has performed at this level new or used, considering that there isn't a SUV out there that gets anything close to the mileage this vehicle gets. If I had one complaint, it's the slight hesitation I get when accelerating real hard from a dead stop. Other than that, it a blast!
