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


Review

I really enjoy the decision to buy a Hybrid Ford Escape. The overall quality is excellent. The piece of mind knowing that I can have great gas mileage, protecting the environment and also not send money over to the Middle East is worth every penny. I also enjoy the same benefits of a regular SUV concerning cargo space and overall flexibility. The only downside is the interior design, very simple (I can't believe there is not a holder for a cell phone!) Overall, very happy with the purchase.

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


Review

Fun to drive. Handles well. Quick steering response. Adequate acceleration from a stop. Excellent acceleration for passing. Driving a lot of highway miles and still averaging 29. Have seen 33 in city driving. They could have done a better job on front seat creature comforts, i.e. cup holders, change holders and sun glass holder. Safety features were a consideration in buying. Road noise is a little loud but not terrible. Overall a great buy.


Worst Features

Improve the cup holders. Impossible to put 2 large drinks in them without keeping the arm rest open. Coin holder is worthless for anything but quarters.

The vehicle works as advertised. I find the mileage is a touch better than shown on the sticker.


Best Features

Regenerative breaking.


Worst Features

The electric motor needs a bit more oomph off the line

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


Review

I've had the Escape for 2 weeks and it's performing as advertised. I got over 30mpg on the first tank of gas, and that will improve. The 15 minute MPG gauge has shown as high as 37mpg. If I were to complain about performance it would be the body roll when cornering, but this is a SUV with a high center of gravity and a little body roll is to be expected. The GPS/radio is disappointing. Small screen, and the CD changer is under the seat. Sound quality is average, and no iPod connection. It does otherwise work properly. If GPS/radio is important to you, might wait to see the 2008 upgrade. It wasn't a deal-breaker for me, but Ford could do better. Improve this and its a 10.


Best Features

MPG; low pollution, large tax credit, solid feel; lots of storage; acceptable acceleration considering the engine size, and actually quick at start up; kind of fun to change your driving habits and watch the MPG increase, the real-time MPG gauge on the GPS will make you a better driver.


Worst Features

Dang Ford, for the price of the GPS/radio you could have done a lot better. For $1900, give us a Bose, an iPod connection, and a decent sized screen for the DVD based GPS. Nobody has an under seat CD changer anymore. Relatively simple things like this are what sells cars for the Japanese.

Review

I liked the interior & exterior design and wanted to do the right 'green' thing so I spent the extra dollars on the 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid. Now I'm extremely disappointed with the 21 mpg city driving it provides. Certainly not the 33 mpg advertised. I drain the little 15 gallon tank in no time. It stinks.


Best Features

The looks & 4X4.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage!
