2007 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I am currently at 126,000 miles and loving my 2007 Escape Limited Hybrid. Getting 30 mpg in all around driving and have had very few problems with the vehicle. I did have the cooling fan issue mentioned at 110,000 just out of warranty, but otherwise I am very happy. My dealer service department also crows about the reliability as they are servicing taxis at over 400,000 miles!
The mileage is great, but I have also been very impressed by the 4wd. It is no live axle Jeep to be taken on hard core trails, but for traction on slippery or icy pavement and driving fire roads in Baja California it is as good as any stock vehicle I have driven.
Navigation is ridiculously clunky, No I-Pod or accessory port and stuck with the lousy factory stereo that has these poor features because of the computerized hybrid specs.
