2005 Ford Escape Hybrid Fwd 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
I love my new hybrid. Room of an SUV with the economy of a small car. Quite a few options, but I would have liked to seen more. Other than that, I'm very pleased. Best gas mileage in the city since the brakes regenerate the energy stored in the battery, which operates the engine up to 30-35 mph. Be warned-if you plan on putting a lot of highway miles on it, you're going to get close to the same efficiency of a regular Escape, which is still great for an SUV, but if you're paying the extra for hybrid technology, you'll want to make sure you'll make up for it by what you save on gas. Bottom line-it's not for everyone. Great for stop-and-go traffic and city driving.
Favorite Features
Gas mileage, cargo space, other options that are available.
Suggested Improvements
More options (i.e. sun/moonroof, heated seats, MP3 player, etc.), mass production (there's a year-long waiting list in a lot of places).
