2011 Ford Escape Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I purchased a new 2011 Escape Hybrid AWD Limited in early 2011.
It currently has 50,000 miles on it and I have had 0 issues.
I live in Colorado and the hybrid handles the snow, curvy and sometimes steep grades, dirt roads and carrying four people with gear to fly fishing destinations throughout the state with ease.
I have followed the dealer recommended maintenance schedule of change the oil every 10K miles, the brakes are at 50% and I average 33 miles to the gallon with a 60 mile round trip highway drive to work each day.
The four cylinder is a bit loud at speed but this easily masked by turning up the exceptional sound system.
The back- up cameras are the greatest addition to the vehicle as are built in close angle rear view mirrors.
Ground clearance is low for snowy road conditions.
