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

Review

Love my new '07 Escape Hybrid. The "Refire" metallica paint virtually glows, catches admiring looks from folks and doesn't show dirt too readily. I do quite a bit of highway and mixed driving. I'm currently getting about 31.8 mpg, which I'm ecstatic about. That's twice the mileage I got from my 2001 V6 Ranger, the Escape replaced. The trucklette is roomy, pretty comfortable and fairly peppy. I see a long relationship with this little SUV.

Best Features

Love how smooth the transmission (CVT) is and how quiet the drivetrain is in most conditions.

Worst Features

Drive-by-wire brakes need better feel and more linearity in action. Radio is okay, but my Ranger's base system sounded better than the Escape's upgraded (not Premium) version. Also radio lacks RDS feature.
