2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I bought my Escape on April Fools Day 2006 hoping this would not be a joke I would regret. This Ford Escape Hybrid is no joke. It is fun to drive and the gas mileage is great not to mention the quality and design. Mileage so far has been about 30 miles a gallon combined city and freeway. Its a little noisy at higher speeds of 50 plus but I will put up with that for all the other conveniences it has.
Of course the gas mileage. Also my navigation display, moon roof, heated seats, design and quality.
The air conditioning turns off when you are not moving. Also lighted vanity mirrors, auto dim rear view mirror; also a transmission that you can get lower gears by down shifting for awd models.
