Very nice overall - mileage isn't great

2008 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
For an AWD vehicle, gas mileage is good. However, it is not going to blow you away, especially when you compare it to hybrid sedans. I am averaging 27- 29.5 mpg mixed city/highway driving after 2 tanks. Going 75 on the hwy = 23mpg. AWD works well. I felt no slippage during the most recent snow. Performance is smooth for an SUV. I can't burn off the line, but it is a hybrid and that is to be expected. Navigation package is great and worth it if you hate getting lost and arguing of directions. Audiophile Sound system is good quality. Standard recycled premium seat fabric is good quality. Dash and doors are plastic, though they do appear to be sturdy and thick.
Favorite Features
Navigation package, high seats, and AWD.
Suggested Improvements
Improve gas mileage. The Highlander hybrid gets better mileage and supposedly has better performance. If performance is going to be less, why can't the Escape at least match the gas mileage? A plug in lithium ion battery would help differentiate it.
