Love this car
By JeffInSd on
2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Got rid of my tank (Chevy Avalanche) and purchased the Escape with 0% financing by Ford Motor Credit in CA ... what a deal! Finished off the first tank of gas at 32.4 mpg and I'm sure it will only get better since I know how to drive it now to get the best mileage. I recommend putting a little distance between you and the car in front of you so you can coast start the car at lights. This will allow you to take advantage of the electric power for a greater amount of time.
It's just fun to drive. Everyone at work loves it and are now thinking about Ford again.
A motor shutoff switch on the steering wheel since I know when I'm going to stop well before the computer. Button should also be a press and hold which tells the computer to stay in electric only mode because I'm going to stop again. Console should have garage door opener and Bluetooth.
