2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
When gas prices began to climb I started looking for better fuel economy. A friend suggested looking at hybrids. The local Ford dealer had one in stock. I test drove it and fell in love. The gas mileage I get is in line with the EPA estimate. The interior is well designed and very comfortable. I just wish it had the navigation system. I haven't had one problem with it. When/if this one wears out I'll get another.
The 110 volt outlet and two 12V outlets. The rear seats fold flat easily for extra cargo room. The stereo is top notch.
The LCD screens in the instrument panel need to be brighter or have greater contrast. They tend to be hard to read on bright days.
