Not for Houston
By MG on
2007 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Car is generally OK. Gas mileage less than advertised -- no surprise -- but far better than my SUV we traded in. Interior has little storage and few amenities. Air conditioning compressor shuts down when the car is powered by the electric motor only, causing extreme discomfort in Houston summer traffic jams and at stop lights. Can get around it by going to Max AC manually, but then you're on the gas engine, considerably reducing gas mileage. This is not a car for hot, humid climates.
Decent navigation system, but not the easiest to use.
Climate control system, power passenger seat, lighted steering wheel controls, OnStar, Homelink, automatic adjustment for glare in rear-view mirror.
