Wife Loves Hybrid Escape
By Jerry on

Vehicle

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

Review

Owned new 2006 AWD for 1 month. 32-33 MPG city driving, 28 mpg highway in first 100 miles. 15 Gallon tank means 400+ miles between fills. Mileage is improving and 100% operation on electric motor below 40 MPH is increasing as vehicle is broken in. Wife is a former Passat-325E BMW driver - she loves how the Escape handles. Handles better than expected in high winds.

Favorite Features

All Metallic Silver (option) hides dirt and is stylish compared to those trimmed out in boring black. In dash 6 changer CD is great for trips for listening to books rather than each other or the poor radio stations in Iowa--no Air America! Rear double entry and seating control makes wife happy.

Suggested Improvements

Air conditioning does not function at low RPM's unless on Max Air. Daytime driving lights should be standard. Outside temp gage and compass is a must for vehicles now. Rear window spoiler should be standard to help keep the rear window clean as possible for safety. Color options are very limited.
