Great Little SUV, commuter only

2008 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
Just a couple 100 miles on it now, getting better than the EPA sticker so far! Due to weight savings, lots of plastic, interior feels a little cheap. Front grille came loose/off the 1st week and needs to go back to dealer. Coming from a Volvo XC90 the Ford ride is lighter, peppier (feels like a V6), way less room. Don't expect to fit 3 child seats in the back seat. We can barely fit a car seat, a booster, and our 6 year old in a seatbelt, it's very cramped back there. Zero cargo room. Without NAV system so all hybrid info is on the dash near odo. The 3 hybrid info buttons are in a bad spot to the left of the wheel, (should be on the steering wheel). Stereo/climate buttons are confusing.
Favorite Features
Gas mileage, leather seats, exterior look, big between front seats storage, power outlets. Stereo system. Quiet when driving city and highway. Makes an awesome 4 person short commuter, but that's about it (can't see it for long trips with the family).
Suggested Improvements
More 2nd row passenger room and trunk/storage space. Move info controls, give it a standard info screen in dash (like the Prius?) (rather than have to buy DVD/Nav to get it). Simplify climate/stereo control area (too busy). Re-design how 2nd row seats fold down. Door storage could be much bigger.
