2008 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

We have owned our 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid for almost one year. It has been a great car. We have had no problems with it of any sort. I had a good test of the AWD last winter when traveling a lonely state highway in a full-on snowstorm. There was 3-4 inches of snow on the road and the Escape handled it beautifully. The Highway Partol closed the road right after I made it through due to other vehicles involved in accidents. Our milage is a very consistent 27 to 28 MPG, whether city or highway. In very hot weather the city mileage drops if the A/C can't be kept in the "economy" mode. If the A/C is not in "economy" the gas motor runs all the time. Great car! Buy it if you can find one!

Favorite Features

Hybrid feature works great. Excellent gas mileage in stop and go traffic. Lots of interior room. Very good comfort. Nicely equiped with lots of standard features (such as cruise, dual zone A/C, trip computer, fog lights, etc.)

Suggested Improvements

If you can find one at all in dealer inventory it will probably be loaded up with navigation, leather, etc. Do what I did and save yourself about $3500: order a base level one. If you want navigation buy an aftermarket on-dash unit like a Garmin.
