2009 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
In this volatile economic world, I find it a real plus to have a motor vehicle that yields me 30-44 mpg of gasoline. This 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid Limited does that for me thus far, and is just plan fun to drive I'm still on my first tank of gas and getting to know the SYNC & NAV systems, but thus far I am really pleased. An SUV that gets me 42 mpg around town. I really like that. I will update this as my time with the SUV increases, but for now I could not be happier with my choice
The door mounted key pad, the navigation (NAV 2) system, the cell phone interface, the hybrid system display, the SYNC system is a joy, the moonroof, the ride, the interior lighting, the leather seats, the ground clearance, the view, the security features (computer chip key), the backup sensors
I cannot think of a thing I would like added, except perhaps Ford added trailer hitch, rather than an aftermarket addition.
After 5 years and 50,000 miles I still give this Ford hybrid an A+. I average between 30 and 40 miles per gallon fuel economy, never had any problems, or work done (other than the normal maintenance) and have enjoyed the ride since day 1. The navigation system has been a plus. I am still on the original tires, breaks, fuel filter, spark plugs, .... The only things changed have been wiper blades, air filter, cabin filter, oil and other fluids at interval and battery. This has really been a great vehicle that Ford built from my point of view.
