2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Bought only a couple of weeks ago but it has been a dream so far. Smooth, quiet ride but still feels enough like a truck. Good acceleration even when you're already doing 60. Got it fully loaded (premium and safety packages with the moonroof). Good sound system and so much cargo space. Plenty of leg room in the back. Easy to use LATCH system for car seats. Tinted windows make window shades for kids unnecessary. Comfortable seats. I am one very satisfied customer.
Guilt-free SUV (made in America in a union shop with practically no emissions and better mileage than my old Civic). The screen showing real time MPG really helps maximize the mileage. Looking forward to using the heated seats this winter. Moonroof!
Needs rear AC vents, iPod adapter and more storage compartments. Little nooks in the front for parking cards and other odds and ends would be great. Having to turn the Max AC on when you're driving on electric sort of defeats the purpose. Locking gas compartment. Auto headlights.
