2007 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
What I like best about this car is the feeling of total satisfaction I get. I never write reviews but this car has made me want to brag about it. Nothing but tens in all categories for it. Great handling and steering, fantastic sound system, quick response, great braking, great viewability and the backup warning system has proved to be a valuable asset. While the car was a little more expensive than a regular Escape, I'm satisfied that the fuel savings will make up for it in less than 2 years. Oh wait! There is that nice little tax *credit* too! That chops payback to about 14 months. Topping it off, my 12 year old thinks I'm 'kewl' for going green. What is that worth?
The 6 CD changer, backup warning system and the lovely GPS angel that made me unlost 2 times already. The good feeling of cruising our small town at 20 mph with not a sound from the electric motor is also a favorite.
I can't think of one thing I would want more. Surprise me.
