Typical Ford
By CarGuy87 on
Vehicle
2008 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
This Escape is a Fleet vehicle that gets a lot of use - 25k miles per year. I was initially very happy when the company bought the Escape. The first winter the wrench light kept coming on disabling traction control. The power steering periodically shuts off, which the manual calls "normal". Recently this triangle light has been coming on almost daily which indicates a serious problem with the Hybrid system. The shift had to be replace after something broke inside releasing the car from park, resulting in a co-worker getting run over by the car. The gas/elec transition is rough, and the gas engine is loud. I understand its feet and it'll have problems - but this is ridiculous.
Favorite Features
Great sound system, love the blue lighting. Good size vehicle. Good acceleration and handling. Does great in the snow when the traction control works.
Suggested Improvements
Quality! If it can't handle two years of fleet use, what about after five years of normal use?
