2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I traded in my 2001 XLT explorer for the 05 Escape Hybrid. I was tired of the high gas prices at $2.49 a gallon. I was spending $80.00 a week on gas to commute to work and back home with my Explorer. I bought my Escape Memorial weekend. The Escape doesn't have the power like my Explorer did, but I wanted something that was fuel efficient. So there are trade offs. Other than that, I love my Escape hybrid.
My favorite features are the savings in gas, a car like feeling, the navigation system, 6 CD disk changer system.
The only problem I have with my Escape is that the rubber on the rear right passenger side door jam is loose. I need to take it back to the dealership. It's under warranty.
