2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I have had mine for almost four months and it is great! I am averaging 30- 33mpg in combination driving. I get closer to 33 when I drive to max out the electric mode and watch my acceleration but even driving more aggressively I get around 30. I have the Premium Package and am very happy with this vehicle.
The combination of the I-4 and electric motor give this the feel and pickup of a 6 cylinder and it is very fun to drive.
I'd love to see them solve the problem with the AC compressor cutting off in electric only mode ... it's a minor annoyance at times.
