2007 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

The Escape Hybrid is fun to drive. It is not as comfortable as our Expedition was, but we are paying for technology and better gas mileage rather than top of the line comfort. We miss the storage place in front of the gear shifter and the covered storage between the seats is too small to hold my wife's purse. We also noticed the air conditioning gets warmer when the vehicle switches from gas engine to electric motor, but if you use AC Max it forces the gas engine to run. The car sounds and feels different from our Expeditions, but it is a smooth comfortable ride with plenty of power to zip around town. We bought it loaded and love it!

Best Features

Easy to maneuver and comfortable ride. Stereo with 7 speakers sounds great. We especially like the gas mileage display because it graphs your performance during the last 15 minutes. Cool! Heated seats and AWD will be great this winter. The 2007 base price is $1300 less than the 2006!

Worst Features

It would be nice to be able to add a remote starter for those extremely hot or cold days. There is no information on this subject for the Ford hybrid. An exterior temp gage and compass with an electro-chromatic mirror would be a nice option ($300 aftermarket). CD changer under the seat feels cheap.
