2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Besides being cold now and the hybrid getting less than the advertised mileage due to that fact, everything else that was hyped about the hybrid is right on the money. I still think I would have bought one if I had known about cold weather affecting the mileage, but we all like truth in advertising don't we?
Comfortable interior, smooth ride, seamless acceleration. Large room, love the flip up hatch door.
Somehow eliminate the cold weather affect on the electric motor not coming on until the catalytic converter is warmed up.
