2008 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Comfortable and quiet, except for the buzzy engine when you accelerate hard. 2 1/2 years old now and flawless. Averaging about 28 overall, about 26 highway and 32 around town. If you're coming from a high-powered vehicle, you may not be happy with the slight lag in acceleration when you need to accelerate hard, but that's the only flaw with the system. I have a light foot; it's supposed to learn how you drive, so maybe those with a heavy foot won't have a lag. 100% trouble free, normal maintenance only, which is not expensive. Rides much better with the Goodyear SR-A tires I put on. OE Continentals were hard as a rock. Great snow car. A very satisfied owner. Thanks Ford.
