2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I have had 2 Ford Escapes and decided to try the hybrid due to my traveling. It was mainly due to gas prices rising. I cant believe what a difference it has made in my fuel costs.The ride is wonderful and I have enjoyed learning how to use the navigation system. The warranty on both the engine and battery system is super. I haven't had a bit of trouble with the 2 previous Escapes and I don't expect any with this one!
Side airbags and the option to shut off the front airbag system if a child is in the front seat...and my moonroof. The stereo system is also very good.
I have no suggestion for anything needing improvement except possibly having a carrier as in the other Escapes to contain groceries etc. in the back.
