Traded my X5 - never looked back
By Denver on
Vehicle
2008 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
I drove a BMW X5 4.4 for five years prior to trading for the Escape Hybrid. Gas prices were part of my decision, and I honestly wanted to be one of the voices clamoring for Detroit to get with the program and invest in alternative powertrains. I loved the build quality and engineering excellence of the BMW. I expected that switching to a more pedestrian Ford was going to be full of compromise. Certainly, the finishes are less luxurious (recycled plastic instead of leather dash, fewer adjustments in the seating, etc), but overall, I have been quite satisfied. If I had it to do all over again, I would do it all over again.
Favorite Features
Zippy, great nav system, good leather seats, decent stereo, consistent 30 MPG.
Suggested Improvements
Why no E85? This should be easy! Understeer in corners, wallowing suspension, insane hoops to jump through to fold down rear seats (remove and stow headrests, lift and tumble seating surface, fold down seat back). No body side molding?
