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

Review

Hybrids are great for the gridlocked, rush-hour driving in a city like Atlanta. Gas mileage is outstanding in these conditions. I bought this car off the lot, and did NOT pay the markup prices they were trying for. At the same time, in these times of high gasoline cost, don't expect the dealer to drop much if any below MSRP; just don't pay for the garbage "features". The Escape Hybrid has adequate roominess, and is surprisingly roomy for a tall guy like myself (6'4") behind the wheel.

Best Features

Gas mileage, particularly in city rush hour traffic. Ride is smooth, acceptable roominess. A nice feature is the fact that the radio continues to function (even after the car is turned off) until the door is opened. The 110V power outlet will prove to be very useful.

Worst Features

For the price, a lot of the interior features seem to be cheap and "plasticky", a particular bane of Ford products. The windshield wiper controls (especially for the back window wiper) looks cluttered and unnecessarily complicated. Some controls seem to be unnecessarily "crowded".
