More fun to drive than my Prius!

2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

We have a 2004 Prius and now a 2006 Hybrid Escape. Our daily mileage is low 30s, but I can easily nurse that up to mid 30s and above with Prius-style tactics. The Escape is more fun to drive and does a better job of moving two adults, a dog, and a baby with equipment than the Prius could. The Prius is still king for mileage, but it's now a commuter only.

Favorite Features

Hybrid drive, dash indicators confirming the drivetrain is really in electric mode (wish the Prius had this), navigation system, cargo space, pep; much better acceleration than the Prius.

Suggested Improvements

Inside handle on the hatchback STINKS. Has caused numerous injuries (bleeding, scratches, etc). Look at how Toyota did it on the Prius ... or at least try to close the Escape hatchback with a bag of groceries in one hand. Would be nice if the dash MFD display was larger.
