2006 AWD Just bought

Vehicle
2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
Drove a V6 Passat with Triptronic, now a CVT transmission instead. We were looking for a taller vehicle and lower maintenance costs if possible. Being in northern snow climate AWD was paramount. Have a Toyota Sienna minivan that was supposed to get good gas mileage for a van. Then gas prices went from $1.85 to $2.85 and up. Still enjoy our van but avoid driving it and started using the Passat at 20 to 24 mpg ranges. The Tribute/Mariner the only lower cost AWD SUV truck with a car-like ride unless going to the high end Highlander. The costs of hybrid technology made the Escape the clear winner for our next car. Pay under $30K for an Escape or much over $30K - for a Highlander both SUVs.
Favorite Features
Paint colors, good pickup, comfortable as a taller driver. Good visibility, good storage for a small SUV, hoping to get over 30 mpg using regular gas! Rated as 33 mpg city/ 29 hwy as an 4WD which is great.
Suggested Improvements
Lighter batteries and lower costs like LITHIUM that could be plugged in when want to. Use of multiple options for fuel such a biodiesel, electricity/solar, and 85 octane ethanol gas. Ability to add extra batteries for certain user's needs.
