2005 Ford Escape Hybrid AWD 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

So far, so good. After taking test drives at autoshows and with dealers, and really needing a replacement this years for my '01 Escape, I took the plunge with an all-wheel-drive Hybrid. Smooth city driving, with enough pep to take on the interstates with ease. Has speed like a six-cylinder. Its new CVT transmission is as smooth as silk! And it's quieter than previous Escapes. Still can't get over the no engine noise feeling at a stop light, or in bumper-to-bumper city traffic!

Favorite Features

Shifter on the floor. Smaller size than Explorer gives more parking flexibility. Better seating than previous Escapes.

Suggested Improvements

Could use the moon roof option; none is available. Could use some more interior lighting, especially at ignition keyhole, top center of roof between sun visors and inside glove compartment. A place for a garage door opener. Navigation system should be standard rather than option
