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

Review

While driving my Escape hybrid 4x4 without A/C on, I was getting 27.4 mpg. Not too bad (for a combination highway/city) I think, however, not close to the 33 mpg as indicated on the sticker. The hybrid has a lot of zip off the line, but I must back off on the gas pedal while the cvt tranny moves up to a higher speed (not a big deal though). It's fun to drive. Parallel parking is a breeze.

Best Features

6 disk cd player, great styling, mucho room in the rear with seats folded. It's a lot fun to drive. Steering is quite responsive and the brakes are outstanding.

Worst Features

Lengthen the right driver's armrest. Improve the material in the cloth seats. A double coating of paint would help the stone chips.
