2007 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
We bought this car new as it was unloaded from the truck. My wife loves everything about it and wants to trade it in on a new one since they changed the body style. At first we used to just go for drives to see how high we could get the MPG value on the screen. We have seen high 50s for short drives but average in the upper 20s. It provides everything my wife wanted; She sits up high, it is extremely reliable, it gets great gas mileage, and she likes driving it.
If you get the Backup Sensors you will never want another car without them. The MPG Monitor is fun to watch and makes ownership more enjoyable when you see 30s and 40s on the display. Driving a low speeds in stealth mode - all electric.
1. Automatic Heated Seats turn on and off even though we are still wanting more heat. 2. Navigation System is almost worthless. We put our Garmin on the dash. 3. AC turns off when you come to a stop and car gets hot fast in warm weather. 4. Stereo sounds cheap. Rear passengers flooded with bass.
