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

Review

I was nervous about purchasing new automotive technology but I have been completely satisfied by the reliability and performance of the Ford Escape Hybrid. As another reviewer noted, in hot humid climates like Houston where use of MAX AC is mandatory, the gas engine runs, reducing gas mileage. For the other 5 months of fall/winter/spring that we have, the SUV is blast! All year round it performs like a 6 cylinder SUV. The exterior and interior finishes are of good quality.

Favorite Features

Excellent ride with seamless transitions in powertrain. Reliability. Storage and hauling capacity. Maneuverability. Multidisk CD player. 120 V AC outlet. Way cool in parking garages - electric up, electric down, recovery of energy while braking coming down.

Suggested Improvements

The Navigation system is disappointing - screen too small, controls are very tedious, and performance is only so so. Road noise is notable a high speeds.
