Why get a hybrid?
By DogFather on
Vehicle
2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
My wife and I purchased the hybrid to increase our fuel efficiency. After 15 months, the Aux. Mode Door Actuator ceased to work. It wasn't under warranty so we paid over $500 to replace it. This offset all savings of having a hybrid. Now after 14 months, the same thing has happened again so we might as well have bought a standard Escape and saved in the long run. We found no benefit because of this in owning a hybrid by Ford.
Favorite Features
It has excellent fuel efficiency. Too bad the actuator door costs cost more than the gas it saves.
Suggested Improvements
Make the Auxiliary Mode Door Actuator last more than 14 Months. Incidentally, just long enough so the old one isn't covered under warranty. I'm wondering if Ford has gone back to their old ways that got them in trouble in the eighties.

WHY would you give this a high rating in stars? It sounds EXACTLY like ford is once again trash. If you could give this fewer stars, please do.
