2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Two weeks ago, I traded in my 2003 Mazda Tribute and purchased a 2006 Ford Escape AWD Hybrid. I've never posted a review of anything I've purchased before, but I just had to do so this time around because I LOVE THIS CAR! It handles great, is very comfortable and is averaging 25-28 mph in the rural country driving I do - where my Mazda Tribute had averaged about 20 mpg (city driving would provide even higher mpg for this vehicle). I feel great knowing that I've purchased a car with the new hybrid technology that will allow us to decrease our dependency on an ever dissipating oil supply.
The combined Navigation System, Hybrid function, gas efficiency and upgraded CD/stereo system. I love this feature and the stereo sounds great!
Put an automatic dimming rear view mirror with an outside temperature / compass feature in this car. I paid the dealer to install an aftermarket one for me (costing $400+) and definitely this it should have been included in the Luxury Package.
